What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a compassionate, relaxing, nurturing energy therapy in which practitioners use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and self-healing.
Healing Touch is a complementary, integrative energy therapy that can be used in conjunction with traditional therapies. It is safe for all ages.
The goal of Healing Touch
is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system, thus creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur.
How does Energy Healing work?
Energy therapies focus on removing energy congestion that forms in our energy fields (aura) and energy centers (chakras). It re-establishes healthy energy flow through opening, connecting and balancing the human energy system.
It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. Healing Touch is a heart-centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and the client work together to facilitate the client’s health and healing.
