About John Kortum

Brief Bio

John Kortum is a scientifically tested Medical Intuitive and author. His live demonstrations have been featured on television programs in more than 120 countries. He is the founder of The Kortum Technique and consults, speaks, and teaches worldwide on sensory integration and intuitive applications in healthcare. His reproducible methods have been independently evaluated in a clinical environment with 93% accuracy.

Growing up in the Chicago suburbs during the late 1960s and early 1970s, John recognized the human body projected health in obvious ways regardless of race, gender or age. He noticed people who had health imbalances projected distinct textural qualities. Noting his observations over the next three decades, he correlated the variety of textural qualities with each of the body’s organs and systems.

In 2001, John approached the conventional medical community for formal testing. He published his experience of clinical testing and how he brings healing to people when conventional medicine is ineffective.


John has facilitated workshops over twenty five years. He has been featured on several television networks including A&E Biography Channel’s original series The UneXplained, The Dr. Oz Show, ABC News, FOX News, and NBC News. John has conducted several live demonstrations on camera as well as before audiences in media and conference settings with sustained levels of 93% accuracy. By adapting his perception to medical language he substantiates a heuristic for health care practitioners to develop sensory integration.

Perceptual Explorations

Any phenomena that do not fit into our ordinary box of reality catches John’s eye. He roams the globe, as a “perceptual anthropologist”, in search of locations where past or forgotten cultures applied natural sensory perception. The wake of sensory clues adds to his experience base and deepens his understanding of structured perception.

Personal Interests

John’s global roaming introduce foods of all nations and a desire to reproduce elegant cuisine in his own kitchen. He is interested in historic architecture and is currently restoring his 1912 residence. He plays guitar, piano, bass, djembe, and jun-jun. He is working on a new book project, teaching himself how to speak Mandarin, while immersing himself in video production for his IMPACT Project series.
