Through the use of gentle, light, or near-body touch, Healing Touch for People provides a compassionate approach to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. This practice uses touch in a heart-centered, intentional way to clear, balance, energize, and support the energy system.
Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, we can experience blocks to the healthy flow of energy. Healing Touch works to restore that flow by opening, connecting, and balancing our bodies.
Healing Touch is a thoroughly researched practice and is widely used in a variety of settings. For example, Stanford University is currently running a clinical trial with breast cancer patients to test the ability of Healing Touch to reduce the strong side effects of chemotherapy.
Healing Touch sessions can be given anywhere, but are typically administered while the client – fully clothed – lies on a treatment table or bed. A session can last 15-35 minutes, or as determined by client requirements and methods used.
Benefits may include:
- Pain reduction
- Decreased anxiety
- Relief of stress and depression
- Strengthening of the immune system
- Enhanced recovery from surgery
- Added support during chemotherapy
- Deeper spiritual connection
- Increased well being
