What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch  is an energy healing therapy in which the practitioner uses her/his hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to enhance, support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and self-healing.  Healing Touch uses light or near-body touch to clear, balance, and energize the human energy system in order to promote health and healing for the mind, body and spirit.

What to expect during a Healing Touch Session:

During a Healing Touch session the individual lays fully clothed on a massage table.  Healing Touch sessions may also be completed while sitting in a chair, reclining in a chair if unable to lay flat or in an individual’s bed if they are in the bed ridden or in the hospital.

Prior to the start of the session the I will obtain an intake form, review the client’s history and goals for the healing session.  An energetic assessment will be obtained pre and post completion of Healing Touch interventions.  Mutual goals for the session will be created by the client and the practitioner.  Light or near body touch will be used to complete the Healing Touch interventions to clear, balance and energize the client’s energy system.  After completion of the Healing Touch session the client and the practitioner will give each other feedback about the session.  Finally a mutual plan will be created to assist the client to continue their healing.  Educational resources and techniques will be discussed, taught and given so that the client can continue to self heal.

What is the physiological Response of Energy Healing?

  • It initiates the relaxation of the body
  • The relaxation response releases endorphins in the brain
  • The endorphins relax the muscles
  • Relaxed muscles create more space between cells providing increased circulation
  • The increase blood flow elevates oxygen levels throughout the body
  • Accelerated blood flow allows for nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently
  • Enzymes build for better digestion
  • Assists in regulating and stabilizing hormone levels throughout the body
  • Toxins release from the body
  • Healthy cells begin to regenerates a sense of well being is established which promotes healing
  • When the body has a stable physiology, the immune system is regulated.  The resulting stability within the immune system affects the physical, emotional. Mental and spiritual facets of the body’s energy field – supporting self-healing.


History of Healing Touch:

      Healing Touch Program was developed by Janet Mentgen, BSN, RN, HNC, HTCP/I, a holistic nurse from Denver Colorado who practiced and taught energy-based care starting in the 1980’s.  She was actively involved in leadership with the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA).  In 1988, Janet was honored as the Holistic Nurse of the Year by AHNA for her outstanding accomplishments in the field of holistic nursing.

       In 1989, Healing Touch was offered a pilot program at the University of Tennessee in Memphis and Gainesville Florida.  In 1990, AHNA began supporting Janet’s privately owned program by offering continuing education contact hours.  Classes were offered throughout the United States and Canada.  The Healing Touch curriculum has been taught to thousands of students in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, India and Nepal. 

     The Healing Touch Program is considered a world-wide leader in energy medicine due to its level of professionalism, standardized mutli-level core curriculum based on scientific and spiritual principals and research.   The Healing Touch Program is recognized by the American Holistic Nurses Association and Canadian Holistic Nurses Association (CHNA).  Healing Touch is the first organization exclusively providing continuing education programs in energy medicine to be nationally accredited with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation.  Continuing education credits hours have also been granted by the National Board of Massage Therapy.
