Parish, W. T. (1873–1946)
Pioneer British spiritual healer, whose profession commenced
in 1929 after a surgeon warned that his wife would die
from inoperable cancer within six months. A Spiritualist friend
suggested psychic healing, and during a Spiritualist séance, a
spirit guide informed Parish that he was a natural healer and
would cure his own wife.
Parish did in fact effect a cure within nine months, after
which he began regularly to practice as a healer. Over seventeen
years he received more than 500,000 letters of thanks
from grateful patients, many of whom had been declared incurable
by doctors. He became popularly known as ‘‘Parish the
Healer.’’ He died in January 1946.
