Healing Touch

Healing Touch is a therapy that helps to restore and balance energy that has been depleted due to stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery or medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.  Healing Touch reduces pain and anxiety, and offers comfort and relief when nothing else seems to help.

A 2012 Military Medicine study showed a combination of Healing Touch and Guided Imagery lowered PTSD symptoms, depression, and cynicism in returning active duty military.
