Health Journalist Mita O’Conaill puts
Root Cause Healing™ through its paces

Root Cause Healing with Peter Donn by Mita O Conaill

© Mita O’Conaill – March 2005

Root Cause Healing™ (RCH) is a healing technique which uses dialoguing and muscle testing to access the subconscious, in order to heal the client psychologically and physiologically.

Peter Donn , the creator of RCH says that it is a healing system that uses psycho-kinesiology (PK) to find the cause of any issue or problem. PK reveals what we need to know about those causes to help the person to heal, how to find what we need to know; and finally what method of healing is the best at the time.

The purpose of RCH is to clear the emotional charge and limiting beliefs caused by the event or situation so that the problem disappears, or the person’s relationship to the problem changes.

The subconscious mind is 30,000 times more powerful than the conscious mind, processing a vast quantity of information instantaneously, which would be impossible to the conscious mind. It continuously replays patterns and belief structures which have been created in the past. These are, in effect, our programming, and unravelling these could explain why we react the way we do in certain situations. RCH is a very elegant method of unravelling. It is extremely simple, yet highly complex, and totally fascinating.

Peter explains that root causes can come from anywhere: from genetic lineage, the womb, your mother’s feelings, our ancestors and even past lives (or experiences outside the conceptual world of healing). For example if a mother-to-be is worried that she won’t be able to look after her baby, the child may grow up with feelings of being a burden, not being wanted and being unlovable.


I asked Peter to help me cure chronic anxiety. Throughout the session he clarified and was directed using MT, both on me directly using my arm and on himself on my behalf with his fingers.

Using an almost invisible web of structure Peter guided me through a complex and intricate journey through: patterns I follow in arguments; my childhood; and my relationships with my parents and siblings that led to the discovery that I rarely express anger because I am afraid of hurting others. Peter helped me identify limiting beliefs developed in childhood which hindered my self-expression; and that the root of my anxiety was a defence mechanism to avoid feeling out of control.

It was almost as if I could see the internal structure of my brain laid out like a map.

Toward the end of the session I felt “an opening” in my chest and a feeling of wellbeing. MT verified that this session had been successful on all levels and that the cause of my anxiety had been cleared.

If this sounds a little too good to be true, Peter explained that kinesiology directs us along the most suitable method of reaching our destination even if it may not be the most direct route, for example, through the door instead of walking through a wall to get outside. So my believing that anxiety was eradicated could itself be a necessary part of the healing.

So far I feel positive about myself and my career. My anxiety is not completely gone, but there has been a shift in that direction. I can see some of my patterns, understand myself better and use muscle testing at home. RCH is a very powerful and wide ranging discipline and I would like to use it on a long term basis.
