No, you can keep your skepticism and it will still work! Healing Touch has physiological effect and elicits the relaxation response. This happens when your body relaxes endorphins (good hormones) are released from the brain, which helps the muscles to relax. When the muscles relax circulation is improved and the increased blood flow elevates oxygen levels throughout the body. This in turn allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently, enzymes are built to aid digestion, hormones are regulated, and toxins are released from the body. This allows healthy cells to regenerate and promotes a sense of well-being which then supports healing and regulates the immune system.
Healing touch is a subtle energy therapy. Initial changes occur in your energy field thereafter, impacting you physically. However, to get the most benefit from Healing Touch you need to incorporate it into your health regimen. It is like physical fitness you can’t just show up once to the gym and automatically be physically fit. However, you see and feel the benefits over time. This also applies to maintaining energetic balance as a whole being (physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually) you need to show up and take care of your whole being on a regular basis. We are our own best healers and I believe the most powerful healing works when we consciously show up in all aspects of our lives on a regular basis. Healing Touch connects, opens and balances the energy that surrounds, interpenetrates you supporting the your whole being to rest, restore and rebuild.
