Healing Touch (HT) is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that uses gentle touch to help the body rest, restore and rebuild. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. HT has an ongoing research program in conjunction with major medical centers, universities and the National Institute of Health Office of Complementary Medicine. You will find HT offered in hospitals, private practices, hospices, schools, doctors’ office and spas.
How is Healing Touch used?
HT can be used to alleviate many acute or chronic conditions as well as to prepare for and recover from surgery. HT can also be an important part of a wellness or fitness program to optimize performance. HT combines seamlessly with other complementary therapies such as chiropractic, massage or acupuncture. Since healing can occur even when the physical body is unable to recover, HT is often used in hospice to enhance end-of-life care.
