Healing Touch is an an energy-based approach to health and healing to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. During a session, practitioners use their hands in an intentional way to influence the human energy system. As a holistic therapy, Healing Touch treats the whole person, not just the symptoms. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmony in the energy system, placing the client in a position to self heal. These non-invasive techniques facilitate clearing, energizing, and balancing the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Examples of how Healing Touch can help include: reducing anxiety, improving sleep, pain management, cancer care support, pre & post-surgery support.
Because of the positive results seen from Healing Touch work, many hospitals have begun incorporating it as part of their Integrative Medicine program and it is also being incorporated into residents' Plan of Care in Long Term Care communities.
Acupuncture is a traditional form of Chinese Medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It is based on the theory that energy, or chi, flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians.
From the perspective of acupuncture, illness occurs when something blocks or creates unbalance in your chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance. By inserting very thin needles into specific points along these meridians, energy flow will re-balance.
