is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a biofield therapy that is an energy based approach
to health and healing. It uses touch to influence the human energy system,
specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy
centers that control the energy flow from the energy field to the physical
body. These are non-invasive techniques that utilize the hands to clear,
energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields thus affecting
physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and healing. It is based
on a heart-centered caring relationship in which the practitioner and
client come together energetically to facilitate the client's health and
healing. The goal in Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in
the energy system placing the client in a position to self heal. Healing
Touch complements conventional health care and is used in collaboration
with other approaches to health and healing.
