Back cover copy

When Angie Buxton-King's young son, Sam was diagnosed with leukaemia, her determination to try everything she could for her child led her to consider complementary therapies, especially healing, alongside the traditional hospital treatment. Using other healers and her own healing skills, Angie saw a real difference in how much more comfortable Sam was and doctors were amazed at how few side effects he suffered. Tragically Sam died three years later, but Angie's experiences led her to take up healing more seriously, eventually persuading Univerisiy College Hospital in London to allow her to offer her services to some of their patients. Though initially a part-time voluntary job, demand for Angie's services led to her becoming the only healer on the payroll of the NHS. The NHS Healer is Angie's remarkable tale and an uplifiting book for anyone suffering from emotional of physical pain or illness, as well as those involved in caring for othersshow more
