Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing and health. It is a relaxing gentle technique that helps foster a feeling of well-being. Janet Mentgen, RN founded Healing Touch in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses, other health care professionals and laypersons.
Today, Healing Touch has spread internationally and is taught in universities, medical and nursing schools and other settings. The American Holistic Nurses Association endorses it. The Certified Healing Touch Practitioners (CHTP) credential is widely recognized in energy therapy practice. All CHTP’s complete a rigorous training and certification program as well as abide by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that works with your energy field to support your natural ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. It is beneficial for reducing stress, calming anxiety, depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, deepening spiritual connection, as well as providing balance and a sense of well-being.
