What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch 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 in Healing Touch is to restore harmony and to balance the energy system, placing the clients in a position where they can self heal. HT facilitates the healing process by using light touch to promote the flow of subtle energy to the areas of tension, trauma and injury. It complements conventional health care and is used in collaboration with other approaches to health and healing.

How does HT work?
Healing Touch brings balance to the body, mind, and spirit. We are made up of an energy field and energy centers (chakras: Sanskrit for 'wheel') that record and store all of our life experiences. All of these accumulate, and they eventually cause blockages and disruptions in our field, which can lead to physical and emotional illness and dysfunction.

A person's health and quality of life are affected by the health and quality of their energy system. The energy system is influenced by the environment, thoughts, emotions and actions of self and others. The Healing Touch philosophy states that healing preceeds and understanding follows. It is not necessary to have a full understanding of what caused your block. Releasing these blocks from the energy field allows you to put your energy into living.


Understanding the way the body responds during energy medicine facilitation provides the fundamentals of how healing occurs. This chart illustrates a full perspective of the body's reactions to energy medicine.

Using energetic vocabulary, this chart explains the body's physiological response during an energy medicine treatment. Following the chart in a clockwise direction, beginning with "Relaxes Body" and ending with "Regulates Immune System", this chart demonstrates the body's reactions during an energy healing session/treatment.

  • Energy medicine treatment initiates relaxation to the body.
  • The relaxation response 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.
