Healing Touch

What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is an energy-based therapy founded by Janet Mentgen RN, in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses, other health care professionals and lay persons.

Using gentle touch to influence the human energy field surrounding the body and energy centres, it assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Healing Touch is used in a variety of settings such as hospitals, long term care facilities and private practices.

What you can expect in a Healing Touch session

  • The practitioner will discuss your areas of concern with you and you will both agree on your goals for the session.

  • You remain fully clothed during the session, removing only shoes, belts and watches. You may be covered with a blanket if required.

  • Based on the goals set and an assessment of your energy field, the practitioner will then apply a variety of techniques to your energy field by laying her hands on your body. If you prefer not to be touched, her hands will move through the energy field surrounding your body.

  • The treatment usually takes 45 minutes to an hour. Allow an additional 15 minutes to assimilate the work and discuss your experience after the session.

  • You may be given self-help tools to use at home.
