- 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.”
