The Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU) defines Spiritual Healing as ‘a form of healing by the use of forces and energies from the world of spirit, channelled through the healing medium by: the laying on of hands on the body; prayer; or direction of thought from a distance’.
SNU Healing Mediums carry out healing in accordance with the philosophy and teachings of Spiritualism. All SNU Healing Mediums are subject to the rules and regulations of the SNU. They work in accordance with the ‘SNU Healing Code of Conduct’ and ‘Healing and the Law’ both issued by the SNU. They also have an understanding of the legal implications and undergo practical and theoretical training, which takes a minimum of one year to complete and which covers subjects as diverse as: greeting the patient; understanding the source of the healing energy; and how to administer it, as well as understanding the law in relation to healing. There is a tendency for people to think that Spiritual Healing is effective only owing to the faith or belief of the person requesting this form of healing. This is not true.
Spiritual Healing requires no faith or belief whatsoever on the part of the person seeking healing. Nor is it necessary for a person to have the same belief as that of the Healing Medium administering the healing. For example, a child, animal or someone in a coma does not know what faith or belief is - and yet they receive, and can benefit from, Spiritual Healing in the same way as anyone else. The only requirements that are helpful are that a person should be aware of their own well-being and that they continue any medical treatment that has been prescribed for them by their GP, as Spiritual Healing is a complementary therapy.
The actual healing itself is one of a spiritual nature and this has an effect on all levels: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritual. The Healing Medium often has no prior knowledge of the patient’s state of health or why the patient has come for treatment, yet often the healing is beneficial to that condition.
The SNU recognises
three methods of Healing:
Where the Healing Medium seeks permission to place their hands on to the patient, IN AREAS OF BODY AS INDICATED TO PATIENT ON "WHAT HAPPENS NEXT CARD"
Where healing is sent by the power of thought to someone who is physically present and is in the room, but is not receiving contact healing.
Where the patient is not physically present and healing thoughts are extended to them. Patients requesting Spiritual Healing are advised to ensure that they are consulting an SNU Spiritualist Healing Medium, who holds an up to date Accreditation card, issued by the SNU, which certifies their name, registration number, photograph and renewal date of registration.

Spiritualist Healing Mediums
As from the 27th of January the wearing of face masks by healers during healing is no longer mandatory by SNU healers.
However we ask that if asked to do so by a patient, the healer will do so and that they consider that wearing a mask will help to protect the patient.
The use of couches for Healing is no longer allowed under SNU healing
