Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support physical, mental and spiritual health.
Healing Touch uses the gift of touch to influence the human or animal energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body.
These non-invasive techniques employ the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It is based on a heart-centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client’s health and healing.
The goal of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmonies in the energy system, placing the client in a position to self heal.
Healing Touch Research has been conducted in a wide variety of settings and with a number of different problems and situations including:
- Cardio-vascular disease
- Death and dying
- Endocrine/Immune function
- Patient satisfaction and experience
- Post operative recovery
These studies demonstrate that there is support in favor of considering Healing Touch for providing integrative care and that patients assess it highly. Healing Touch research has been supported and/or funded by hospitals, universities, colleges, professional organizations, private foundations, and the National Institutes of Health, Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Over the years Reiki has been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. Reiki uses a technique called palm healing or hands on healing as a form of complimentary therapy. It is sometimes classified as oriental medicine.
Through the use of this technique, practitioners believe they are transferring universal energy (reiki) in the form of “ki” through the palms which allows for self-healing. There are two main branches of Reiki, traditional Japanese and western reiki.
One of the greatest healing benefits of Reiki is stress reduction and relaxation which triggers the bodies natural healing ability, improving and maintaining health. It is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of body, mind and spirit. I have been trained to Level 2, which means I am able to do distance healing using this modality.
