dr-sha_272_RGB_xsm Soul Mind Body Medicine by Dr. Zhi Gang Sha is one of the most unusual books on healing I’ve ever read. I had heard that Dr Sha was a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and so I expected a book on qi gong and perhaps acupressure or acupuncture. Indeed, the book is full of information on qi gong postures for an enormous range os physical and mental ailments, as well as information on meridians and energy flow. But there’s also a lot more.

Two things stand out in this self-healing system. One is that Dr. Sha places a great deal of emphasis on the spiritual aspects of healing. Love, forgiveness and self-acceptance are part of every one of the healing methods.  The affirmations are almost child-like in their simplicity, such as “Dear soul, mind and body of my liver and stomach. I love you. You have the power to heal yourselves…” etc. It may sound a bit naive to skeptical ears, but there is a strong impression of basic spiritual goodness about the writing.

The second thing that stands out is that Dr. Sha quite definitely claims specific divine revelation, guidance and gifts. Many if not all of the mantras, positions and techniques are something he claims to have received directly from the Divine. He clearly sees himself as not simply a healer, but someone with a divine mission. This could raise some suspicions that he is a potential cult-like leader. But I don’t get this feeling from him at all.

I have a pretty good nose for cults, having belonged to at least one myself. This doesn’t have the earmarks nor the feel of a cult. I get the distinct impression of complete sincerity and selflessness from Dr. Sha. The fact that he is published by Marc Allen of New World Publishing also encourages me. Marc is the American publisher of Eckhart Tolle, and I have always found his choice in authors to be excellent.

Dr. Sha’s system combines many elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine with more general new age metaphysics, such as the chakra system and the idea of karma. Added to that are his one unique techniques and contributions. The reviews he receives are some of the highest I’ve seen for any author, and I’m definitely considering trying some of them out.

Another small detail that impressed me – Dr. Sha himself posed for the hundreds of photos of the various postures used in the book – rather than delegating that (no doubt tedious) task to an assistant of photo model. I like that. It gives me a feeling that the man really cares about the material being accurate.

Dr. Sha also offers his own services as a soul healer – a blessing he claims anyone can receive for free by simply asking for it according to a pattern listed at the back of the book.

This seems like a very gentle and compassionate system of spiritual healing, and I would recommend that anyone looking for a spiritual healing system give it a try.

  1. Great post! It has been four years since I first read Soul Mind Body Medicine, and I still refer to it very often. As you say, it is filled with many simple healing techniques in addition to spiritual wisdom. By applying these soul healing techniques, I have healed fobriomyalgia, back pain, infection, and more. Very effective!

    I would also receommend The Power of Soul by the same author.

    Many blessings!

  3. Nice review of a great book. I agree with you that this is a more gentle way to help the body heal itself. I used the techniques in Soul Mind Body Medicine to heal my digestive system. Western Medicine offered me prescriptions for the ulcer, acid reflux and Crohn’s disease but no real cure. I opted to use Dr. Sha’s techniques along with naturopathic medicine and within four months, the Crohn’s disease was gone. My ulcer disappeared along with the acid reflux. Both my doctor and naturopath were mystified. It’s been several years and neither the ulcer nor the Crohn’s have returned.

    When I first heard Dr. Sha explain illness from the perspective of Soul, Mind, Body Medicine, I instantly understood it and his techniques: Body Power, Mind Power, Sound Power and Soul Power.

    These techniques are so easy to do, that you almost dismiss them as being too simple. That’s one of Master Sha’s trademarks. He simplifies everything to it’s essence. You can learn more about Master Sha and his work in a beautiful documentary, Soul Masters: Dr. Guo and Dr. Sha.

It is the Tao. Dr. Sha has mastered this knowledge and applies it and shares it with whom ever and wherever he goes. His latest book is Tao, The way of all life. When it cam eto my door step by the UPS man, I was like a kid at Christmas! I opened the package and immediately placed the book on my Heart. A smile came to my face. My body was filled with divine love and light. That is the power of Soul. How beautiful!

  7. Being a medical doctor specializing in Integrative Family Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine, bridging the best of west and east medicine, I can appreciate the value of his Soul Mind Body Medicine book. I teach these self-healing techniques to my patients, medical students and public workshops. It is easy to learn by following the pictures and clear explanation of four power techniques including, Soul power, Mind power, Body power and Sound power to heal each disease described in the book.
    These healing techniques can help you reduce stress, unblock obstruction, release negative energy, improve wellbeing and can be used as health maintenance program but they should not replace medical check-ups if you continue to feel ill.
    Word of caution: For those who are taking medications: you should ask your doctor to help you reduce the dose if you are feeling better. Some medications can cause withdraw symptoms if not done properly.
