What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing biofield energy therapy that uses gentle touch to assist in balancing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Healing Touch works with your energy field to support your natural ability to heal, is safe for all ages and works in harmony with and is complementary to standard medical care.
How is it done?
While the clients rests fully clothed on a massage table, the practitioner place their hands on or near their patient’s body with the intention to help or heal. In doing so, therapists believe that they are consciously directing or modulating an individual’s energies by interacting with his or her energy field. The focus is on balancing the energies of the total person and stimulating the body’s own natural healing ability rather than on the treatment of specific physical diseases.
What will I feel?
Oftentimes, this treatment produces a state of deep calmness and relaxation. Patients may even fall asleep or be in a dreamy state of consciousness. Moreover, they can experience warmth, tingling, pulsations, or an emotional release. Their bodies may even exhibit involuntary muscle spasm and jerking. Some individuals report seeing colors or visions. Others experience feeling elevated or being outside their body.
Is there a governing body that oversees or credentials practitioners in healing touch?
The Healing Touch Program (HTP) and Healing Beyond Borders are international, multi-level educational programs in energy medicine therapy based on the curriculum created by Janet Mentgen. Students learn to use a variety of hands-on techniques that facilitate energy balancing for wholeness within the individual, supporting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Continuing-Education contact hours are granted by HTP and Healing Beyond Borders through the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation and the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork
What are chakras?
Throughout our body we have main energy centers, which are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. Each of these main energy centers are referred to as chakra– which is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. A chakra is a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level.
