Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to help re-pattern the patient’s energy field and accelerate healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
Healing Touch is used in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, private practices, and long term care facilities.
Healing touch can impact a patient in a positive way; early research shows that the therapy reduces pain, anxiety, stress and effects from trauma and chronic pain. Drugs are important but we can’t forget the other aspects involved with healing.
Practitioners use their hands above or on the body, using a gentle touch, with the intent of affecting the body’s energy fields. This technique may truly calm patients undergoing minor procedures.. 85% of all illness and disease is caused by stress, and for some patients the body can’t heal to if the mind and spirit aren’t connected to the healing. However, Healing Touch Therapy is not a
substitute for medical examination, diagnosis or treatment.
Healing Touch is a nursing based continuing education program for registered nurses, physicians, body therapists, counselors, psychotherapists, other health professionals, and individuals desiring an in-depth understanding and practice of healing work using energy based concepts.
