Ask Dr. Orloff

What does it mean when my hands become hot?

Question: I was wondering if there is a reason why my hands are so hot? I have received craniosacral therapy and I have noticed that the therapist's hands warm up when she is working on me; I have also been told that healers have very hot hands. My hands are not constantly hot, although, they are hot often. So hot that sometimes it is uncomfortable for me to hold someone's hand because it will make their hands sweat, or lay my hands on someone because it makes them very warm. I have been told that I should pursue the healing arts and I have experienced a level of sensitivity to some things but I am not sure where to start.

First and foremost, I would be most interested in finding out if my 'hot' hands mean anything.

Answer: Hot hands can mean that your hands are getting energized. Some people find this uncomfortable, and shake their hands after healing sessions to dispel the energy. Healing energy can take the form of coolness too, so don't think that just because your hands aren't hot that nothing's happening.

All best,
