Similar to Reiki in that it accesses Universal Life Force Energy, Healing Touch is a complimentary or stand-alone treatment; it is a gentle and non-invasive technique that influences and supports the human energy field often promoting a deep sense of calm and relaxation. This process can restore harmony, energy and balance while supporting a self-healing journey.
History of Healing Touch
Healing Touch is a medically based energy therapy program designed for nurses and health care professionals. Originally developed by R.N. Janet Mentgen in 1989, in the last two decades, Healing Touch has been taught to more than 86,000 participants worldwide. Healing Touch has been effective in demonstrating a positive impact in the health care community and is widely respected and increasingly accepted, not only in the United States, but in many countries around the globe.
Utilizing a number of different techniques that employ a light or near-body touch, the Healing Touch caregiver provides heart-centered care where both client and provider are equal partners in facilitating wellness.
Just as meridiens in the body may become blocked so can the human bio-field; Healing Touch focuses on removing energy congestion (blocks) that form in our energy fields (aura) and energy centers (chakras). Once these imbalances and disturbances are cleared, the energy channels resume their task of integrating the body, mind and soul to restore health and/or promote healing. Healing Touch also has preventive value by restoring balance to energy field disturbances, which could later result in illness if left unbalanced.
