Healing Touch is an energy healthcare therapy that was developed by a nurse, so it was designed to be complimentary to other healthcare practices and interventions. The Healing Touch Practitioner uses light, energetic touch and works within the body’s energy field to balance and clear the energy field, which affects the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Studies are showing that Healing Touch can decrease anxiety, stress and pain, as well as decrease hospital stays and overall recovery times from surgery.

What can I expect during a session?
A typical Healing Touch session lasts about an hour. A medical history is first taken, so I know how best to support you. We’ll go over this and your intentions for the session prior to beginning. You will lay fully clothed on a padded table, and I will use light touch and work in your energy field, using different techniques to clear, energize and balance your energy field and energy centers. Complete relaxation is almost always achieved, and many people experience non-ordinary or altered states of consciousness, which can help healing at a deeper level. Some people experience heat or vibration, some see colors or have visions, some feel emotion and some fall asleep. Whatever happens, is what is right for you.
How many Healing Touch sessions are recommended?
Frequency of sessions depends on the individual, and why they are coming to see me. Healing Touch can be used as a part of overall wellness maintenance, which might be done once a month. It could also be used to decrease pain or address specific physical issues, which may benefit from several weekly sessions. A cancer patient may have sessions to help alleviate the effects of chemotherapy or radiation. Each case and person is unique in their needs.
Healing Touch and Self-Care
A big part of this therapy is supporting you in your self-care. Ultimately, you and your body and Higher Self know what is best for you and how to heal. For example, a physician may set a broken bone, but it is the body itself that does the actual healing of the break. We are truly remarkable beings, and Healing Touch can help you tap into your inner healing and wholeness!
