Class Description

Come and explore who you are and learn the gift of energetic touch ...
a gift that renews and grows every time you use it.

Healing Touch classes are open to persons from all walks of life. It is not necessary to be in the healthcare field. Classes are a unique combination of lecture, demonstration and best of all, lots of hands-on practice. Classes are small and students work with each other giving and receiving, making the weekend relaxing, energizing and FUN!

Many students learn HT to use on themselves to improve their own health and well-being. Others use the techniques as a special way to help family or friends. All students receive a certificate of course completion and are encouraged to practice and use the techniques.

Healing Touch is a respected nursing continuing education program founded by Janet Mentgen, RN, and endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association. Nurses and massage therapists find HT enhances their professional skills and brings a welcome return of compassion to patient care.

Classes are approved for 17-25 nursing or massage therapy CE contact hours depending on level taken.

Returning Nursing to Its
Compassionate Roots


Level 1   Students learn 10 HT techniques including 3 full-body balancing techniques as well as specific interventions for pain and headache relief. Techniques are practiced in class on either a massage table or in a chair. Students also learn the theory of HT and how the human energy system relates to our health and well-being. It is a weekend of self-care, relaxation and renewal for all who attend.

Level 2   The highlight of this class is learning new techniques to treat back and neck discomfort, and an opening and closing spiral sequence. Students also practice a full HT session and learn how to choose and combine techniques to address specific needs and conditions. After completing Level 2, students may apply to serve as Healing Touch volunteers at Morristown Medical Center.

Level 3   The focus of this advanced class is the development of the student by learning meditations and techniques to harness and focus the energy. New techniques such as energetic chelation, spinal cleansing and lymphatic drain are also an exciting part of this weekend class.

Levels 4 & 5   These classes give students the intense practice needed to fine tune their Healing Touch skills and the techniques learned in the first three levels. Other topics include how to select and sequence techniques, develop goals and plan, document sessions and note progress over time. Students are encouraged to select mentors and begin their journey to becoming an accomplished practitioner.

Certification as a Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP) is available on application to Healing Touch International (HTI), Lakewood, Colorado, following completion of coursework. The CHTP credential assures the highest standards of practice and is widely recognized in energy therapy training and the medical community.
