A professionally trained therapist and psychologist is forced to accept reincarnation when a young patient unexpectedly regresses spontaneously during a hypnotherapy session. This leads him to study reincarnation and past life regression. Through hypnotherapy he solves problems in the lives of his patients and friends.
The story begins in Fenton's office in a hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is working to cure a young patient of his terrible fear of dogs. Having tested all other channels Fenton tries hypnotherapy. Unexpectedly, the 8-year-old boy regresses spontaneously to a life he lived in India some 110 years ago when the boy's wife was bitten by a rabid dog. How could this young boy make up all of this exact and detailed information from a time and place he should know nothing about? Fenton is suddenly forced to accept that the theory of reincarnation might actually be a scientific reality. Fenton realizes that his ex-girlfriend Angel's knowledge of esoteric matters could help him with this strange turn of events. During an uneasy truce for the boy's sake... Fenton and Angel reconcile. Through hypnotherapy, Angel, and the help of his friends he is able to help the young boy and his family. He begins to use hypnotic regression with his other patients with great success and earns the epithet of 'The Past-Life Healer'. Through the process of hypnosis and past life regressions we travel with Fenton and his patients to a wide variety of exciting locations and historical time periods.
