Non-invasive Healing Touch uses light touch to influence the energy field that surrounds the body and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body. It is holistic, like all the other therapies that I offer, affecting the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of one’s life. It is based on a very caring and heart-centered relationship between the practitioner and client. The goal is to restore balance and harmony within the energy system, and to awaken the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Healing Touch research has been conducted in a wide variety of settings and with a number of different problems and situations, including:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Death and dying
- Endocrine/Immune function
- Patient satisfaction and experience
- Post-operative recovery
These studies demonstrate that there is support in favor of considering Healing Touch for providing integrative care and that patients assess it highly. Healing Touch research has been supported and/or funded by hospitals, universities, colleges, professional organizations, private foundations, and the National Institutes of Health Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
