Experience the difference Healing Touch can make in your life - effective, gentle, non-invasive techniques to help your body heal itself and feel at deep peace.
A higher level of wellness is more than an absence of symptoms. It includes vitality, a joy of living, and a feeling of self-worth. These are all qualities that are present when our life force energy is flowing vibrantly and radiantly. Healing Touch is an integrative energy based therapy with a goal of increasing the flow of energy throughout the body – facilitating the conditions for optimal health and well-being. Through light touch, the practitioner clears, energizes and balances the human and universal energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing.
"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."
James Oschman Ph.D. Energy Medicine, The Scientific Basis, 2000.
How does Healing Touch work?
Healing Touch enhances the body's natural ability to heal by increasing the flow of life force energy through the body. We always say in Healing Touch, if we can create movement of the energy, we can co-create healing. Practitioners simply use their body as a vehicle to bring higher vibration energy through to the client. The higher the vibration in the body, the more the energy flows.
Symptoms manifest in the body when the energy flow becomes sluggish. Each of us has both a physical body and an energetic body - notice how you sense someone has come near you even if you don't see them - it is their energy field you are feeling. Our physical body is constantly taking information from the energy body to decide how it is building or healing itself. Our energy field is considered to be the blueprint for the physical body. Just as a builder will look at an architect's blueprints to decide how to build a house, our physical body is constantly looking to the energy body to see how it will build and repair. Because, as you know, the cells of our body are constantly building and repairing.
If we can keep our blueprint nice and healthy, we create the conditions for optimal health and well-being. We can clear disturbances in the energy field before they have a chance to manifest physically. All healing is self-healing. For example, if you break a bone, you go to a doctor and the doctor sets the bone for you. However, the body itself actually does the healing. In the same way, a Healing touch practitioner helps to "set" the energy, but the body itself does the healing.
What should I expect when I come for a session?
The first session would be about 90 minutes. Your practitioner will start by conducting an intake interview with you - asking you questions about the whole picture of wellness in your life. You will be asked about your medical history, as well as questions such as:
- What kind of things create stress for you?
- What do you do to relieve stress?
- What is your support network of friends, family?
- What are your short term and long term goals for your health and well-being?
The intake interview will be followed by a Healing Touch treatment on a treatment table. Clients remain fully clothed for a treatment and the practitioner will start by assessing the energy field and then choosing techniques to administer based on the information obtained in the assessment. Healing Touch involves some light touch, some hands on the body, and some working just in the energy field without actually touching the body. It is typically deeply relaxing. Because we are such interconnected beings, Healing Touch affects us on all levels - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Who comes for Healing Touch?
Everyone from all walks of life! Men, women, seniors, children, and babies. Very often the first thing that gets someone through the door is a physical issue. It might be an illness, or injury, or some kind of chronic pain that has not been helped by Western medicine. Many times the healing results in an emotional clearing or a spirtual healing. Everything that has ever happened to us is stored in the energy field. So when we begin to move energy, it frequently stirs up memories, feelings, etc. It gives us an opportunity to clear those things we have stored away that are compromising our flow of energy, which often is what causes the pain or physical discomfort in the first place.
Some people come for Healing Touch just for the relaxation and to prevent illness and to stay healthier. Many people prefer it over massage because they are more comfortable not having to disrobe for the session and the relaxation benefits are more profound.
For clients who are dealing with long seated emotional issues, I often suggest Ro-Hun Therapy.
Is Healing Touch something new?
Healing Touch is a form of Energy Medicine and is a modern interpretation of an ancient Healing art. The art of hands on healing has been around as long as humans have been on earth and there is evidence of this in many different cultures. The Healing Touch Program was founded by Janet Mentgen, RN in 1989. Healing Touch incorporates techniques from many well-known healers into one approach. Healers from which this work was drawn include Barbara Brennan, Brugh Joy, MD, Alice Bailey, and others.
