WHAT IS HEALING TOUCH?
Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing, heart-centered energy therapy that uses gentle touch to clear, balance, restore and support the human energy system. Non-invasive, standardised techniques are used to stimulate the self-healing processes creating a coherent and balanced energy field. Because Healing Touch infuences the whole person on multiple levels, virtually everyone can benefit from Healing Touch treatments. It is safe for all ages and may be integrated with standard medical care.
Healing Touch is well established in the United States where it is often offered to patients in clinics and hospitals. It has been found to be very effective in reducing the need for pain relief drugs and enhancing recovery. Medical research is continuously showing that Healing Touch can promote deep relaxation and assists the maintenance of general health and well-being as well as many other specific bene?ts. Most research is carried out in the US, and can be read on the Healing Beyond Borders website.
When we talk about energy, what do we mean? In the broadest terms energy is the life force in everything. Disease is a state where our energy is not flowing well.
