What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is an energy-based approach to health and healing. It’s based on the belief that everyone has a dynamic, subtle energy field around their body that can be influenced to promote health and healing. Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, environmental or social stressors can cause this energy field to become out of balance, leading to dis-ease.

A Healing Touch Practitioner uses touch and hand motions a few inches above the body to influence the flow of energy in and around the body. The client sits or lies on a massage table, fully clothed. A Healing Touch session leads to subtle shifts in energy flow that help reestablish the natural balance and harmony in the body. The goal is to put the client in the position to self-heal. A typical session lasts 45-60 minutes. 

“Happiness cannot be found through great effort and willpower but is already there in relaxation and letting go”.

— Lama Gendun Rinpoche

Who would benefit from Healing Touch?

Healing Touch therapy is an excellent complement to conventional medical practices. Healing Touch can be used independently or in collaboration with other approaches to health and healing. Healing Touch may be used by people of all ages and at all stages of wellness and illness. Some clients use Healing Touch even when they are in good health as a means of maintaining wellness and balance in their lives.
