Healing Touch is a gentle, complementary energy-based approach to healing. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance, to enhance wellness by influencing the human energy system – the field that surrounds the body and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body with non-invasive techniques. Healing Touch practitioners use their hands in a heart-centered way in a caring relationship to clear, energize and balance the human and environmental energy fields, affecting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and to facilitate healing on each level.
Because HT therapy requires only a receptive participant and a practitioner, it can be used for nearly any indication or ailment. Many hospitals are incorporating HT to calm and prepare patients for surgery, chemotherapy, and other anxiety-provoking procedures. Studies have suggested that HT may decrease wound-healing time and shorten the length of hospital stays. Other common indications for HT include chronic pain, headaches including migraines, generalized anxiety, and sleep disturbances. HT therapy can facilitate a spiritual connection and often helps clients with emotional distress. It is especially useful for patients who are in pain but unable to tolerate traditional massage or touch, such as fibromyalgia and burn patients.
An in-person Healing Touch session is typically 90 minutes for a first session with intake and 60- 75 minutes for follow-up visits. Sessions include a full intake, energetic assessment, and hands-on treatment. A full energetic assessment includes a Hara and Core Star assessment, Chakra system assessment and Energy Field assessment.
The use of Aromatherapy can help deepen a Healing Touch session. Aromatherapy is the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize, and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process. Aromatherapy is a natural companion to Healing Touch sessions, helping individuals experience a deeper, holistic connection to their mind, body, and spirit.
Healing Touch – Initial session, with or without Aromatherapy: $90
Healing Touch – Follow-up session: $75
Healing Touch with Aromatherapy: $85
After studying Spring Forest Qigong for three years, Alanna felt called to begin studying Healing Touch and as of September 2013, became a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner. Alanna uses Healing Touch “from beginning to end” – supporting pregnant moms and babies, to young children, adults, seniors and hospice clients for their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs. Alanna has also completed coursework with The Institute of Spiritual Healing & Aromatherapy (ISHA) and is a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist. She finds the use of essential oils helps take clients to deeper levels in achieving the healing process.
Her vision was informed by Master Chunyi Lin, who believes in “a healer in every family and a world without pain.” Janet Mentgen, founder of the Healing Touch Program had a similar philosophy, hoping to make “Healing Touch” a household world by inspiring and empowering humanity to achieve holistic health, healing and well-being. Alanna has been using many of these techniques over the past two decades, and believes that self-healing is available to those who are willing to do the work.
