In the future, holistic healing will modify western medicine and blend into it like a stream merging with a large river. Already, reiki is being used in hospitals. Dolores Krieger invented therapeutic touch which, ironically, is non-touching application of energy. Johrei is strictly non-touching. It was begun in Japan by Mokichi Okada, lovingly known as Meishu Sama by his followers.
Once dismissed as mumbo-jumbo, holistic healing is increasingly being given a try by more and more people in the United States and canada.
