What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate healing. They help by promoting physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. As an energy-based approach to health and healing, this modality focuses on the magnetic field around the body.

Healing Touch uses touch to influence the human energy system and the energy centers that control the flow of energy to the physical body. These non-invasive techniques utilize the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting overall health and healing (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual). The practice of using healing touch is very much based on the relationship between the patient and the practitioner. It is based on a heart centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client’s well-being. The ultimate goal of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmony in the energy system which enables the client to facilitate recovery at a faster rate.

Studies have shown that a holistic approach to aid in recovery against injuries or defense against illnesses is positively impacted by the integration of Healing Touch. “In a few decades scientists have gone from a conviction that there is no such thing as energy fields in and around the human body to an absolute certainty that they exist” points out James Oschman Ph.D. in “Energy Medicine, The Scientific Basis.”

So why not try to see if healing energy would work for you. If you’re experiencing stress, post operative recovery, cancer, cardio-vascular disease, endocrine/immune function, pain, patient satisfaction and experience, and psychotherapy/psychology, then healing touch may be the secret health modality that you need to get better.
