    “I was told the movement of the hands up and down, over the [broken leg], without touching, was a way of reconnecting the former pattern of the healthy leg. It would eliminate any swelling during the healing phase. Medicine Man was jogging the memory of the bone into acknowledging the true nature of its healthy state. This removed the shock created when it napped in half, ripping away from the position developed over thirty years. They “talked” to the bone.
    “Next the three characters in this drama—Medicine Man at the foot, Female Healer kneeling at the side, and the patient on his back, resting on the earth’s surface—all began to speak in prayerlike fashion. Medicine Man put both hands around the ankle. He did not appear actually to touch or pull the foot. Female healer acted in the same capacity around the knee. Their speech was in the form of chants, or songs, each one different. At one point, in unison, they all raised their voices and shouted something. They must have used some form of traction, but I could not see any actual pulling taking place. The bone just slipped back into the hole from which it had exited.”
    “There was no bandage, no binding, no splint, not crutch, and no sutures.
    “Soon the trauma was put aside, and we were busy eating our meal. During the evening, different people took turns putting Great Stone Hunter’s head in their lap so he had a better view from his resting place….
    “The next morning, Great Stone Hunter stood up and walked with us. There was not a hint of a limp.”
    “In setting the bone…the two native physicians worked by sending thoughts of perfection to the body. There was as much going on in their heads and hearts as in their hands. The patient was open and receptive to receive wellness and believed in a state of full and immediate recovery.”
