Healing Touch therapy is one of the fastest growing forms of Energy Medicine. It is a simple relaxation or energy balancing technique, a complementary therapy option that promotes relaxation and decreases anxiety and discomfort while promoting stress reduction, relaxation and pain control. It assists patients both in the hospital and in their continued recovery after leaving the hospital, as well as becoming an ongoing means of promoting wellness. In fact, because of the effects and overall benefits, some people have found that they might require less medication. Please note: all medication adjustments should be done under the supervision of your doctor.
Why Choose Healing Touch?
Healing Touch has attracted the attention of the National Institutes of Health. Studies funded by the NIH are looking at the effect of energy work on joint disorders, wrist fractures, cardiovascular health, cancer, wound healing, neonatal stress, pain, fibromyalgia and AIDS. Some studies have suggested positive effects on various orthopedic conditions, including fractures, arthritis and injuries to the muscle and connective tissue.
Healing Touch is being used in hospitals, as well as other health care facilities around the world, and Healing Touch classes and sessions are often offered in hospitals. Patients in the hospital setting experience many stressors (e.g. anxiety, pain, sleeplessness, nausea, fatigue, etc.) that can undermine the function of the immune system and interfere with healing. They are asking for Healing Touch as a healing option. Cancer patients claim that Healing Touch has helped with pain management, relaxation, and side effects of treatment like nausea and stomach upset.
Doctors have been known to tell their patients that are receiving Healing Touch to continue sessions since they see the ongoing benefits of it. Interestingly, there are many doctors that have taken Healing Touch classes, and many RN’s are Healing Touch practitioners as well. Healing Touch has been found to be beneficial in every aspect of healing: this includes physical, psychological, emotional, as well as spiritual benefits, so the possibilities of using Healing Touch within these settings are limitless.
