While being guided with a trained practioner, an individual relaxes, and then focuses within to access his/her own inner resources, strengths and wisdom to address an issue or concern. The healing powers of imagery affect all levels of a person; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Imagery bridges the conscious mind with the deeper subconscious wisdom within us.

How Can Healing Touch Benefit Us?
Healing Touch Research suggests that there are many benefits and that individual experiences will vary. What Happens During a Healing Touch Session? The first session will involve a consultation that asks questions about the your physical, mental, and emotional situation. Then there will be an energy session where the client lie on a massage table fully clothed. The practitioner will place their hands either above or gently on the individual and the session usually lasts about 1 hour. Most clients say they feel very relaxed.

Stress – Prolonged stress has been shown to cause illness and Healing Touch research has shown that it can have a positive effect on reducing stress. For more information: Contact Doreen L.
