What Is Healing Touch?

WHAT THE HECK IS HEALING TOUCH AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME?

by Sharon Wacks, RN, BSN, SCP, HTP Healing Activator

Many often say they have actually heard of another type of energy healing treatment called Reiki and often ask me, “What the heck is Healing Touch and is it the same?”

While Healing Touch and Reiki are both light touch hands on or near the body forms of energy or vibrational therapies, they have unique approaches & benefits, practitioner training & origins. Both treatments do however work with clients fully clothed to facilitate stress reduction and relaxation to promote energetic balance, health, and healing of the body, mind and spirit.

Healing Touch (HT) is used in many hospitals and healthcare settings as a an integrative approach therapy and encompasses use of over 30 energy -based non-invasive techniques; such as chelation, pain drain, lymphatic drainage and chakra connection, that gently nurture the biofield or human energy field. The hands on application of these modalities work to clear, energize, and/or balance the subtle energy field surrounding the body and flow of energy centers or (chakras) which affect change in a person’s health on the physical, mental, emotional & spiritual levels.

Healing Touch Practitioners utilize an understanding of the principles of energy medicine and the basics of anatomy & physiology to access universal energy and provide conscious heart-centered intention to direct, clear, balance & re-pattern energy on and around the client’s body via their hands. Having cumulative effects, this art& practice is done to facilitate & promote energetic harmony to improve the client’s innate ability to heal on all the four levels mentioned earlier. The human body is designed to heal & be in or maintain an optimal steady state (homeostasis).

The goal of all forms of healthcare whether homeopathic, allopathic, chiropractic, alternative, etc. is to return the body, functions, components and structures backto homeostasis or its intended designed state of well being. Since HT effects changes in the energy fields & centers it can then also affect change in the biochemical nature of the cells within the human body as well. Research has shown when the biochemical nature of a cell is changed the energy of the cell is changed as well (Molecules of Emotion, Candice Pert, PhD). So yes, Healing Touch can really help you.

While Healing Touch is not a cure for disease or illness, in my opinion it is one of the safest, most effective complement to all healthcare modalities both conventional and alternative and has shown major physiologic benefits when used for:

  • Pain Relief
  • Anxiety & Stress Reduction
  • Accelerated Healing (wound, fractures)
  • Headaches – including migraines
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Back and neck problems
  • Preparation before and after medical treatments and procedures
  • Heart Disease & High Blood Pressure
  • Cancer
  • Hospice palliative & supportive cares
  • Spiritual development
  • General improvement in health & well-being
  • Self-care

The practice of Healing Touch began and was first developed as a nursing continuing education program by pioneer Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN (1938-2005) in the early 1980s based on her own 20 year research, studies, and experience with healers and the work of NASA Physicist and Licensed Massage Therapist, Barbara Brennan, PhD. In 1989,

This 5 level Healing Touch Certification Program was established and has been endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association since 1990. The education & certification program that I have taken is offered through Healing Beyond Borders (HBB), formerly known as Healing Touch International. While anyone can learn the hands on energy techniques, in the state of Florida only Licensed Massage Therapist, Registered Nurses, Physicians, and those with Divination Certification are licensed to touch and charge fees as professional HT practitioners and all must abide by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice established by HBB as well as each individual’s professional foundational disciplines guidelines.

As a Registered Nurse studying and receiving Healing Touch over the past 4 years has helped me both personally & professionally grow & heal beyond compare physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually. Healing Touch continues to be the basis for my first line choice of treatment for clients, family members, and myself. I highly recommend this art & energy healing practice to support you in your health & healing journey.
