Healing Touch

SELF-CARE TECHNIQUES

What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is a “energy therapy” that employs gentle hand techniques to re-pattern the patient’s energy field and speed up healing of the body, mind, and spirit.

Healing Touch is based on the idea that humans are energy fields that are constantly interacting with others and the environment. It is an effortless form of meditation. The hand placements induce a meditative state and help us to become still. A relaxed mind and body give us a foundation for healing, and remind our system of its capacity to self-heal.

We can practice Healing Touch anytime, anywhere.
