About Healing Touch
Healing Touch is a compassionate energy therapy in which practitioners use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate your health on all levels and vitalize your capacity for self-healing.
Healing Touch uses gentle, light or near-body touch to clear, balance, energize and support the human energy system in an effort to promote healing for the whole person: mind, body, spirit. Healing Touch compliments conventional health care and can be used in collaboration with other approaches to health and healing.
The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system thus creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur.
"When two people enter into a caring moment, a new field of consciousness, or possibilities, is created. Both can tap into another field, the universal energy, universal Spirit of Infinite Love, which in turn has healing possibilities... The caring-healing momentum transforms from a two- field to one-field consciousness."

What you can expect
Healing Touch sessions are typically given to clients who are resting comfortably on a massage table. A session can last anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on client needs. Clients are fully clothed, and encouraged to wear comfortable clothing to the session.
With your permission, the practitioner uses his/her hands to assess your biofield and proceeds to clear and balance it as needed using either off body touch (near body but no direct contact) or a gentle (still) touch over various areas of the body. The practitioner does not use his/her own energy, but acts as a conduit directing the energy where it is needed. Depending on the client’s initial assessment, specific techniques are used to open and balance the energy field surrounding the body and the energy centers within the body, which control the energy flow to the physical body. Thus, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels of health and healing are affected.
The experience of what is felt during a session depends on the individual. Clients may experience sensations of moving energy, deep relaxation, feelings of being supported, visions of images and colors, or nothing at all. Some common feelings are heat, tingling, a rush of warm/cold, pressure, and involuntary body movements. Each person's experience is unique and whether you feel something or not is not an indication of a successful session.
