What is Healing Touch? Healing Touch is a gentle therapy that helps to restore and balance energy that has been depleted due to stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery or medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system by creating an optimal environment to enable the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur.
Why do you say that Healing Touch effects body, mind, emotion and spirit? We are integrated beings and we cannot separate the physical from the emotional, mental or spiritual aspects of ourselves. When we are physically ill, we are also affected emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Likewise, when we are stressed or emotional about something we often feel it in our physical body. Our body, mind, emotion and spirit are who we are as a whole person and we need to take care of that whole person. Healing Touch affects the whole person.
Here are some of the benefits of Healing Touch therapy:
- Reduces pain

- Strengthens the immune system

- Supports the dying process

- Reduces the length of hospital stays
Do I have to believe in this for it to work on me? No, you can keep your skepticism and it will still work! Your body’s intuitive wisdom will process and benefit from what it knows is for your highest good, whether or not your conscious mind thinks it’s “a little out there”. And remember, your Spirit will automatically “veto” anything that it deems is not in your best interest.
Do you recommend that Healing Touch be used in place of traditional medical care? Absolutely not. Healing Touch should be used in conjunction with – not instead of – traditional medical care.
