Why would an honest, self-respecting practitioner of energy healing call herself a superquack? Do I really consider myself a quack? Well, no. However, there are quite a number of people who consider the work of energy healing to be quackery, and at one time, I was one of them. After years of extensive study and success in my practice, I have changed my mind. While I do take my work seriously, I don’t take myself seriously. On that score, I am willing to use humor to get my point across. This book is the story of my journey from a cold skeptic, to a curious explorer, to a believer with such passion that I have made energy healing my life’s work. The accounts range from my introduction to energy work, and my personal experiences beyond the physical senses, to sharing information from sessions with clients using energy in the body, and in the mind, in order to relieve dis-ease. Welcome to my world!
Hoberleigh Phreigh began her journey in energetic healing work more than twenty-five years ago. First learning Reiki, she later earned her master’s degree in Oriental medicine and practiced acupuncture. Continuing her studies in bio-energetic techniques, she eventually developed her own method to release patterns of disease without needles.
Hoberleigh Phreigh has written an interesting, easy to read book about her experiences with what many of us might consider other worldly. If you are on 'open minded skeptic', interested in exploring the realm of possibility, I encourage you to check out her book!
Super Quack is a real treat! Hoberleigh Phreigh’s honesty and humor make this account of her experiences in the field of energy medicine an easy and fun read. I truly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.

Wow, I didn't want to put this book down. It was somewhat my story as well. As a Naturopath and Nutritionist since the early '90's, I was very concerned about being considered 'new age' which didn't jive with my Baptist upbringing. Hoberleigh Phreigh's journey shares so many different dynamics in the energy field and understanding of healing and her personal experience from skeptic to believer that I wish I'd had it years ago when I began learning this field of energy healing. I highly recommend this read.
"I just finished this GREAT BOOK by Hoberleigh Phreigh, called "The Super Quack"!
It is really a beautiful book describing all the events/classes/workshops she attended to learn where she is now, plus all the many people she has helped with her incredible healing methods...and she has many!
Her book told stories I had no idea about, and how great they ended up after those people saw her and used her healing methods.
I loved it all but especially pages 124 and 125 about "Protecting Yourself" and "Affirmative Prayer...Similar to Visualization".
Everyone MUST get a copy of this great book and learn what goes on inside us, what causes it, and what we can do about it!"
Hoberleigh Phreigh is an amazing healer who has written a funny, informative book with credible stories affirming her gift. Sept is and non skeptics will enjoy this book.
Hoberleigh Phreigh's writing is very clear, well-organized and often flashes with humor. This is an enjoyable read, draws you right in. I would have liked a little more about which of these therapies were most helpful for her.
This book changed my life. I was going through a difficult time when a friend suggested that I read “The Superquack” and maybe think about scheduling a session with Hoberleigh. My initial reaction was, “Yeah, yeah, sure…why not?” I was much more than a mere skeptic on energy healing, not just because of a lack of understanding, but also because I had spent a major part of my life trying to deny and ignore my persistent intuitive side. But after almost a month of being frustrated and at my wit’s end due to what seemed like an unmitigable anger, I was ready to try anything to find peace. I started reading in a state of numbness. Within a few pages, I began tearing up. Hoberleigh spoke to my soul, relayed stories that were so similar to my own denied experiences, they were almost mine. In a matter of minutes, my heart started beating again in cadence with my inner self; and as the tears flowed, my anger began to ebb. The book had such a profound effect that I immediately went to see Hoberleigh to complete my healing. I have since embraced my intuitive side as an integral part that is to be trusted, not feared, and never denied.
