About Healing Touch

"When the mind is calm and the body completely relaxed,
that is Healing Touch." —Maggi Hutchinson

Healing Touch (HT) is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that helps the body rest, restore and rebuild. Using light touch, practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered way to encourage and support a state of health and well-being.

HT is an integrative therapy that works in harmony with standard medical care enhancing the effectiveness of any treatment or medicine. It is safe for all ages and conditions.

When to Use Healing Touch

Many use HT as part of their own wellness program to increase energy levels, strengthen the immune system, promote fitness or optimize athletic performance.

For others, HT helps alleviate the fatigue that may accompany acute or chronic conditions. Many hospitals use HT with patients before and after surgery to relieve pain, decrease anxiety and assist recovery.

Since healing can occur even when the physical body is unable to recover, HT is often used in hospice to enhance end-of-life care.
