What is Healing Touch?

  • A relaxing, nurturing energy therapy
  • Uses gentle, heart-centered touch to assist in balancing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of the client.
  • Enhances the body’s natural ability to heal by using the human energy centers and the energy bio-field.
  • Works in harmony with standard medical care, and is complementary to other forms of health care treatment.

How can healing touch help me?

  • Clients of Healing Touch often report an increased sense of well-being and peace.
  • Many people report positive experiences that have helped them cope with illness or depression.

How does Healing Touch work?

  • Theories suggest that living beings are energy systems and that an individual’s energy field is in constant interaction with the surrounding environment.
  • Since the Healing Touch program is relatively new, research is still in the early stages.

What else should I know about Healing Touch?

  • Healing Touch is not intended to replace, but rather to “complement” or work hand-in-hand with traditional medical treatment.
  • Healing Touch is not a magic solution. Just as energy patterns are established over many weeks, months, or years, it takes time, effort, care and dedication for long-standing energy patterns to shift.

What can I expect from a typical healing touch session?

  • You will complete a brief intake assessment and discuss your goals for treatment with the practitioner.
  • You remain fully clothed during your session and lay on a massage table or sit comfortably in a recliner.
  • A Healing Touch session can last 20 to 60 minutes (for a full body treatment) or 5 to 15 minutes (for a specific area).
  • The practitioner will utilize a series of Healing Touch techniques which may include light touch or hand placement and hand movement above your body.
  • At the end of your session the practitioner will ask you for feedback on your treatment experience.
  • You will then develop a plan for self-care with the practitioner’s assistance.
  • This may include a plan to continue with additional Healing Touch sessions.
  • The practitioner will answer any questions you may have.

Are there any safety concerns?

  • Because Healing Touch is a non-invasive energetic technique, there are no known safety concerns.
  • Your practitioner will assess your individual needs and apply the appropriate energy therapies to serve your highest good.

“The vibrations of life are within and without, and there is a oneness with the universe as we are connected… Healing has to come from within. The intellect cannot do it. It will take surrender.”
