Healing Touch is a holistic energy based therapy that promotes healing of the mind, body and spirit. This therapy helps to balance and clear the energy system and assists the individual in creating an environment for the body to heal.
Healing Touch Practitioners use a very light touch or over the body touch to support the healing of the patient. The individual is fully clothed and sessions may take place in a bed, on a treatment table or in a chair. Sessions can be anywhere from 15 minutes to 60 based on the needs of the client.
Individuals usually experience a sense of relaxation and peace. Many feel more balanced and energized after a session.
Healing Touch was founded by Janet Mentgen, a holistic nurse, RN, in 1989. Her program is currently being used in hospitals, hospice, long term care, integrative health centers, private practices and clinics. Practitioners must complete a 2 -year training program and abide by a professional Scope of Practice and Code of Ethics. It is considered one of the most respected integrative therapies in all health care facilities where holistic methods are provided. Touch is the first energy therapy to offer a Certification program for its practitioners.
