Healing Touch is an energy-based therapeutic approach to healing. HT uses touch to influence the energy system thus affecting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing. The goal in HT is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system to help the person self-heal. HT was developed in the 1980’s by Janet Mentgen RN, BSN, in Denver, Co. and is now used by nurses and other medical-field practitioners nationwide.
Human caring and touch assist the individual to relax, which allows for expansion and balance of the energy field. When the energetic field of the client is enhanced, it increases the opportunity for the body's own cells to "remember their specific functions" thus aiding the body's own self-healing processes. A Healing Touch session often creates pathways from deep within that provide opportunity for the client to move towards increasing health and wholeness. I always go over hand placements with my client prior to the session and they are only used with my client’s permission.
