What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Healing Touch uses the gift of touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body. These non-invasive techniques employ the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. 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 of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmonies in the energy system, placing the client in a position to self heal.
What are the benefits?
Research has shown that Healing Touch facilitates the Relaxation Response and enhances the healing process. The process looks like this:
- The Energy medicine treatment initiates deep relaxation in the body. This triggers a healing domino effect in the nervous system.
- Relaxing deeply releases endorphins in the brain.
- The endorphins relax the muscles.
- Relaxed muscles create more space between cells providing increased circulation.
- The increased blood flow elevates oxygen levels throughout the body.
- Accelerated blood flow allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently.
- Enzymes build for proper digestion.
- Hormones regulate to strengthen the body’s constitution.
- Toxins release from the body.
- Healthy cells begin to regenerate.
- A sense of well-being is established which promotes healing.
- When the body has a stable physiology, the immune system is regulated. The resulting stability within the immune system affects the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual facets of the body’s energy field supporting self-healing.
Healing Touch is highly respected in the medical community and can be found in practice at hospitals all around the world – Medical Research on Healing Touch.
