What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is an energy-based and heart-centered approach to feeling good. It is a deeply relaxing and nurturing technique that promotes physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

I am mostly skeptical of the many health claims within the wellness industry and am typically on the side of evidence based therapies. The truth is, no one actually knows how or IF energy therapies work! You can find all sorts of claims in all sorts of flowery marketing lingo but the research is scant and largely anecdotal. I had long doubted the validity of energy therapy yet my attraction and introduction to Healing Touch seemingly came out of nowhere and surprised me. In my opinion, just like during a massage, your brain is receiving positive input from touch which triggers the release of those feel good hormones (dopamine, serotonin, endorphins) and in turn, tells your nervous system to calm down. If receiving a Healing Touch sessions promotes a healthy nervous system, balances your mood and emotions, and makes you feel good I’m all for it!

I look at a Healing Touch session like a reset for your nervous system which addresses that mind-body connection. Overall it instills a feeling of peace and deep relaxation. It’s ideal for those who feel exhausted by stress, experience frequent fatigue or mental fog, or just feel out of sorts with no concrete explanation.

What happens during a session?
Your first session will involve a consultation and together we will assess your state of health and lifestyle habits. For the session, you lay fully clothed on the massage table; at times you may feel my hands on your body, but sometimes I will be working slightly above in your energy field. You may experience sensations of warmth, muscle twitches, tingling, or pulsations. Many people report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful while receiving Healing Touch, as in a meditative state or, experience a sense of floating in space.

How can Healing Touch benefit me?
As part of my training and certification I had to document 100 sessions and complete two case studies. It was during those sessions with a wide demographic of people (outside of the bubble of a classroom with likeminded students) where I observed these most common effects of Healing Touch. I’ve also had people tell me some pretty ‘out there’ things they saw or felt during their session which I cannot explain!
