What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a hospital-approved, energy-based therapy which aids the body’s own innate healing powers to achieve wholeness. It is a modality in the field of Energy Medicine, which has been practiced around the world for over 5000 years. Working in the electro-magnetic field of the client, the Certified H.T. practitioner uses a variety of safe, non-invasive techniques which promote natural healing. Treatments are applied with the hands on or off the body, at the major nerve centers called “meridians”. The client remains fully-clothed. By holding hands on or near these centers, the practitioner sends restorative pranic energy into the client’s auric field. Because of the “experiential” nature of this process, “feeling is believing”. Healing Touch is based on the body/mind connection with healing occurring through the human energy field. Since all matter is energy, true healing occurs at the energetic level.
Healing Touch can be applicable to any healing need, including the treatment of: stress, anxiety, illness, accidents, back problems, chronic pain, headaches (including migraines), compulsive and/or addictive disorders, surgeries, sports injuries, etc.
The goal of H.T. is to cleanse and restore balance and harmony to the energy system. It impacts the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of the client. Healing Touch practitioners have extensive training, which includes a one year mentorship under a registered nurse. This means they are certified to practice in hospitals and clinics. One example is Stanford Medical Center’s Healing Touch program entitled “Healing Partners”, whose practitioners work on cancer patients. I joined this group in 2011.
Brief History :
Energy Medicine was practiced in ancient China and Egypt more than 5000 years ago. The ancient physician, Hippocrates called it the “bio-field”, an energy force flowing from healer’s hands. Pythaguras, in 500 BC Greece, referred to the vital energy he perceived as “a luminous body that produces cures”. In Medieval Europe it was called “illiaster”. Today, there are 96 different names for this life-force in 25 different languages.
In modern times, there are multiple scientific studies that document this healing energy, which has been measured at 8 HERTZ emanating from the healer’s hands. In 1896, Kirlian photography in France photographed the human auric field, which surrounds the human body. This has been useful in detecting cancer. This life-force has also been called “the fifth state of matter”.
At UCLA, Dr. Valerie Hunt recorded changes in the field electronically as wave forms. This was the first electronic evidence of frequency amplitude of color discharge in the auric field. There are hundreds of other scientific proofs that the human body is made of electromagnetic energy.
In the USA, in 1987, Barbara Brennan, a Psychotherapist and NASA Research Scientist at the Goddard Space Center, created the first school of Healing Science (Healing Touch). She also published the book “Hands of Light”. In 1988 her student, Janet Mentgen, an Army Nurse Corps Officer joined with The American Holistic Nurses Association and they developed a Healing Touch Program for nurses. They trained over 8000 nurses in only five years. She also wrote the first Healing Touch textbook “Healing Touch – A Resource for Health Care Professionals”, with Dorothea Hover-Kramer, RN.
In 1992, I started my Healing Touch training in Honolulu and luckily, I took many courses from Janet Mentgen. My Healing Touch nurse-mentor was Ann Day, RN, MS, HTI. I was certified as a Healing Touch Practitioner in 1998 by the American Holistic Nurses Association. Healing Touch is now practiced worldwide and is administered by Healing Touch International, Inc. in Colorado.
