How is Healing Touch used? 

HT can be used to alleviate many acute or chronic conditions as well as to prepare for and recover from surgery.  HT can also be an important part of a wellness or fitness program to optimize performance.  HT combines seamlessly with other complementary therapies such as chiropractic, massage or acupuncture.  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.  

What am I to expect? 

Come to a Healing Touch session wearing loose, comfortable clothing.  You will receive HT fully clothed on a massage table, but HT may also be practiced in a chair, a hospital bed or a nursing home setting.  Practitioners use light touch and employ a series of hand positions depending on the techniques chosen.  A session lasts from 30 minutes to an hour based on the needs of the client. 

Most people experience deep relaxation during the session.  You may also perceive heat, tingling or a pulsing sensation flowing from the palms of the practitioner.  Results are often subtle.  Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterwards notice a decrease in pain and stress levels, as well as a reduction in physical and psychological symptoms.  Sleep is often deeper and more restful. There is a feeling of calm and well-being.
