FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Paintings That Heal™ Literally!! Scientifically and Alternatively Documented Physical & Energetic Healing ArtPaintings That Heal™ are original paintings created through and by Brent Atwater, a medical intuitive and healer, that activate physical and energetic healing for those with health issues and disorders. Brent is a pioneer in having the healing benefits of Paintings That Heal™ scientifically and alternatively documented. Being in the presence of the Healing Energies of a Painting That Heals™ is what alters and heals both the viewer's physical, emotional, mental and energetic body. The ART of healing is being taken to a new level.Atlanta, GA; Paintings That Heal™ are original paintings created through and by Brent Atwater a medical intuitive and Healer, that activate physical and energetic healing for those with health issues and disorders. Brent is a pioneer in having the Healing Energies and healing benefits of Paintings That Heal™ scientifically and alternatively documented. Each Painting is infused with Healing Energies that Brent channels and directs into the canvas. Then, she is instructed to add color, texture, and image energies whose vibrations intensify and amplify the Healing Energies she channeled. The combination of essential Healing Energies mixed with the vibrations of the colors, images and textures in the finished Painting, activates the brain to trigger chemicals, and the body's cellular system to trigger internal frequencies that help facilitate the body to repair itself. Being in the presence of the combined energies of a Painting That Heals™ is what alters and heals both the viewer's physical, emotional, mental and energetic body, and raises the energies of their environment. The ART of healing is being taken to a new level. http://www.PaintingsthatHeal.com Initial double blind studies using Biofeedback document that in as little time as 5 seconds of exposure to a Painting's Healing Energies, positive changes occur in the individual's physical energy fields. State of the art Gas Discharge Visualization Cameras, and the HeartMath system (used by many Fortune 500 companies and by various departments of the federal government), record positive changes occur in a subject’s heart waves (HRV), respiration rates, body temperature and brain waves (EEG) and other vital signs. Changes also occur in their subtle energy fields. Video testimonials were recorded to accompany the documentation.As a diagnostic tool, findings continually affirm that people respond to a specific Painting which represents a disorder or issue that was either in their past, or is presently or potentially in their physical body or energy field or in the energy filed of someone very close to them. Some people who had multiple diseases or disorders are affected by several of the Paintings. Are Paintings That Heal™ the same as art therapy? No, just being in the presence of the combination of energies in a Painting is what actually alters and heals the viewer's physical and energetic body. In contrast, the healing response in art therapy is generated by the patient making a piece of artwork. Art therapy work is not infused with channeled Healing Energies. According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in the making of art is healing and life enhancing. Although our research has yet to be conducted in a clinically controlled environment, scientific and alternative methods used to document and verify results with these Paintings are:1. Traditional Biofeedback.2. Vocal Emission Analysis, a computer program reflecting subtle energy imbalances in the body. 3. GDV (Gas Discharge Visualization) Camera was developed by Dr. Konstantin G. Korotkov, Ph.D. of Russia's St. Petersburg State Institute of Fine Mechanics and Optics. It is the first device in the world which measures the distribution of energy around a human body. There are approximately 400 cameras in use worldwide and most are used to do research work. The GDV Camera utilizes state-of-the-art optical technology to photograph an individual's energy fields through image sensors that read energy levels from an individual's fingertips. 4. The HeartMath System's Freeze-Framer is an interactive computer-based heart rate variability monitor and real-time pulse wave recording that gives a scientific measure of your physiological readings.In preliminary research, the viewer's physical symptoms and energetic conditions were recorded in health questionnaires and documented in pre exposure GVD images, HeartMath and VEA printouts. After exposure to the Paintings, the post GVD images of energy patterns, and the HearthMath, Biofeedback and VEA printouts substantiated that each viewer's electromagnetic body and their symptomatic physical fields had been positively affected by exposure to the Paintings. Selected images can be seen at http://www.paintingsthatheal.com under the Testimonials section. Why do these work? Each light ray consists of colors that have different wavelengths and vibrational frequencies that affect your mind, cells, and body chemicals differently. By receiving color, texture and image information through our eyes, their frequencies communicate to our brain to direct the various bodily functions to respond accordingly. Not only are you what you think, your visual input matters too! Color, texture and pattern energies and vibrational input are constantly working on your cellular and subtle energy bodies at an unconscious level. The principle of dress for success, painting your environment (home and workplace) and decorating an environment to promote well being, all lend credibility to the fact that subliminal visual input effects and affects all of your health systems. Then add channeled and directed Healing Energies into each canvas that Brent uses to facilitate healing in her clients, and you get a Painting that Heals™. The combination of essential Healing Energies, mixed with the vibrational frequencies of the artwork, all activate physical healing responses in the body. Brent first discovered the powerful phenomenon of Paintings That Heal™ in 2004 while creating a commissioned work, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), for the cover of the University of North Carolina Center for Functional GI & Motility Disorder's annual report. Her client asked her to create a painting of the disorder. When finished, Brent was inspired to channel and direct the Healing Energies for IBS into another layer of the painting which she painted on top of the original image. Amazingly, a year later, the Painting still retains the same powerful Healing Energies, and continues to be a source of healing on a deep cellular memory level for those battling this disorder. What are the benefits of Paintings That Heal™? They are a Healing Energies "generator" addressing specific needs, and physically non invasive. They assist and amplify other healing treatments, procedures and prescriptions, and they facilitate ongoing and continuous positive energies and Healing benefits in the environment. These are particularly supportive for children, the elderly, and those in critical, chronic, degenerative, or delicate health situations. To maximize the healing assets of a Painting, it should be placed where one will receive optimum ongoing exposure to the Healing Energies on a daily basis. Once the Painting's energies become part of an environment, an individual continually benefits from it energetically by means of harmonic resonance. A person's own energy field will regulate the appropriate amounts of energy that they receive on an ongoing basis. You can not be overexposed. When asked about what an individual can expect when they are exposed to a Painting, Brent responded, “At present, there are no specific guarantees regarding a measured timeframe, and the healing properties of Paintings That Heal™. Research results vary with individual situations. We are able to document definite positive changes in an individual's bio energetic fields, and with that given result, we hope, to generate more interest in expanding our long term research program for Paintings That Heal™."What does the future hold for these Paintings? "We believe that Paintings That Heal™ will have multiple applications, from therapeutic uses such as screen savers (a client on meds for anxiety attacks, used his Painting as his computer's screen saver, and was able to reduce and later remove his meds) to medical and healthcare healing decor and public murals. We envision "get well" cards that actually create health, and children's picture healing books. Brent's Just Plain Love™ Children's Healing Books ( http://www.brentatwater.com) contain illustrations infused with the same Healing Energies that are in the Paintings. Imagine prints and posters in nursing homes that create a positive atmosphere, or artwork that soothes in hotels, and waiting rooms, or a deck of cards that facilitates a healthier physical body for the user. The Paintings' uses are almost endless. Wherever there is artwork or a design, or a surface to be painted, the potential for healing is available.We welcome opportunities to work with licensors, interior designers and decorators, galleries, medical professionals, healthcare practitioners and facilities, public environments, and researchers in order to further explore and document the potential of this modality. We plan to place the Paintings to various public, private and institutional healthcare organizations and other areas to expose them to a more expansive audience, and to gather new research data and personal testimonials. We're anxious to expand our research into broader test samples by using more types of monitoring equipment and controlled environments. It is our intent to participate in more research work with various organizations dedicated to discovering and creating new modalities to treat various diseases, disorders and dysfunctions so that the Paintings will be a pioneer in evidenced based art that becomes an integrative bridge between alternative and traditional allopathic therapy to benefit humanity and healthcare. Brent Atwater the creator, is a documented medical intuitive, healer and renowned artist, whose artwork was the subject of PBS national program. At age 16 she was chosen to be in the NC Governor's School for the Gifted in Art pioneer program, and one of her paintings was chosen for the NC Museum of Art's permanent collection.
