What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a therapy that helps to restore and balance energy that has been depleted due to stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery or medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system by creating an optimal environment to enable the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur.

Some of the benefits of Healing Touch therapy include;

  • Reduces pain
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Enhances recovery from surgery
  • Improves mobility after surgery
  • Relieves tension, stress and depression
  • Provides support during chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Reduces the effects of trauma and chronic pain
  • Supports the dying process
  • Deepens spiritual connection
  • Reduces the length of hospital stays
