A fringe medical technique deriving from study of the
human aura, devised by Welsh healer Bryn Jones. The term derives
from the Greek and implies ‘‘mapping-out of the soul.’’
Jones ‘‘massages’’ the auras of his patients, using a diagnostic
device taken over from radionics and designed by an American
named Mark Gallot. This therapy of healing through the
human aura recalls an earlier technique of Hyppolite Baraduc,
who used to ‘‘clip’’ a short distance around the face and body
of his patient with large copper scissors to free the etheric body
from the physical part of the aura.
Jones operates a center for healing known as the Company
of Somatographers, located in Nottingham Pl., London, W.1.,
