Relaxation, decreased anxiety, reduced stress and improved mood are the most common effects and hallmarks of Healing Touch.
Healing Touch promotes relaxation. When your body relaxes, endorphins are released from the brain, which helps 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 promotes self healing by:
- Decreasing Stress
- Calming Anxiety
- Lessening Depression
- Promoting Mental Clarity
- Reducing Pain
- Preparing You for Surgery and Aiding in Recovery from Surgery
- Supporting Cancer Care
- Strengthening Immune System
- Creating Sense of Well Being
Healing Touch elicits a significant relaxation response that leads to improvements in aspects of well-being and health, including mind, body and spirit. Hence, Healing Touch has a significant, positive impact on measures of well-being and quality of life.
