Healing Touch by Kathy
Energy includes our emotions, feelings, ideas and thoughts. While we are physical beings we are also emotional beings whose feelings deeply influence the physical; we are mental, idea generating beings who’s feelings and ruminating thought patterns also impact the physical and emotional aspect of ourselves. And we are spiritual beings who are ultimately connected to a Higher Power (whatever that may be) and your alignment around this relationship impacts your entire self.
A healing touch practitioner consciously uses their intention while employing a series of hand techniques to apply either gentle touch, feather light strokes on the skin or positions hands above the body to elicit the body’s own innate healing process, the ‘relaxation response’. Thereby, facilitating your own natural ability to heal. This restores harmony and balance to the energy system placing you in the best possible condition for self-healing to occur as a whole person.
Healing Touch grew out of the practice of a nurse, Janet Mentgen BSN, RN, HNC, HTCP/I, as a non-invasive integrative approach to conventional medical care. It is recognized by the The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) as an energy medicine or biofield therapy. Healing Touch is also endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association and is used as a complementary therapy at hospitals, cancer centers, nursing homes, and hospices across the country. Lastly, Healing Touch is nationally accredited with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) providing continuing education programs in energy medicine.
Healing Touch is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment.
