About Healing Touch

What is Healing Touch ?

Healing Touch is a nurturing healing therapy, gentle touch assists in balancing the physical, emotinal, mental and spiritual well being. Healing Touch is safe for all ages and is compatible with all health care. The practice and effectivness of Healing Touch is based on a heart centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facillitate the clients health and healing and works to support a persons natural ability to heal. The human body has an innate wisdom for self healing and maintaining balance. At times when our bodies are ill, injured, receiving treatments or under stress, this ability to maintain balance can be disrupted causing congestion or blockage of energy flow. Healing Touch is a positive complement to traditional medicine and health care and can be given to people of all ages and is effective in:

  • Enhancing recovery from surgery
  • Supporting cancer care
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Reducing pain
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Providing complimentary support for back and neck pain
  • Supporting and maintaining self-care

How does our Body respond to energy therapy such as Healing Touch?

Healing Touch promotes relaxation. When your body relaxes endorphins are released from the brain, which helps the muscles to relax. When the muscles relax circulation is improved and the increased blood flow elevates levels throughout the body. This in turn allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently, enzymes are built to aid digestion, hormones are regulated, and toxins are released from the body, This allows healthy cells to regenerate and promote a sense of well-being which then supports healing and regulates the immune system.

What to expect in a treatment

Practitioners will complete a comprehensive interview asking about your Health History. Then an energy assessment is completed giving the practitioner the information needed to select a technique suitable for the client at that time. Techniques involve light touch or near body touch and are carried out with the client fully clothed and comfortable, either lying on a massage table or sitting in a chair. Most clients experience a deep sense of relaxation and peace, often resulting in greater clarity of thought and clearer perspective with a feeling that “something has shifted.” Following a treatment, options for self-care are discussed with a priority given to well being and personal empowerment.
