Ever notice how you feel when someone gently puts his hand on your shoulder when you’re feeling down? Or when someone gives you a high-five after a major accomplishment? Or how hugs from different people feel differently? There is increasing evidence that each person is comprised of an energetic system and the power of touch has profound effects on our biofield.
Founded by registered nurse Janet Mentgen in 1989, Healing Touch is a form of energy therapy that nurtures and supports your natural ability to heal. Hands are typically placed lightly on or just above the body to facilitate energy flow and open up energy centers (chakras). The loving intention to restore balance to your energy field helps optimize physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Healing Touch typically instills a state of deep calmness and relaxation. Some people enter a dreamy state of consciousness or even fall asleep! People may experience different sensations ranging from warmth and tingling to an emotional release or spiritual connection. This is likely the body’s way of integrating the mind, body, and spirit to restore health. Be sure to take care when getting up after a treatment to avoid lightheadedness and/or disorientation and drink plenty of water before and after a session.
Healing Touch can help improve pain and wound healing, ease anxiety, decrease stress, and maximize quality of life. It is non-invasive and has little to no side effects. Get your energy flowing and notice how your body feels after receiving a Healing Touch treatment today!
