What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a nurturing energy therapy that works to decrease pain, calm anxiety and depression, and support your natural ability to heal. Touch is an ancient way to restore comfort to body, mind, and spirit. It is nurturing, non-invasive, safe for all ages, supports your natural ability to heal, and works in harmony with standard medical care.
Healing Touch was founded in 1989 by Janet Mentgen, RN and uses hands-on gentle touch techniques to assist in balancing the body’s energy to promote self-healing. Practitioners receive rigorous training, and Healing Touch is now offered in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, long-term health facilities, hospices, private practices, and spas.

What to expect in a session:
In private practice, after a brief intake and assessment, the client rests comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table. After the hour session, clients often relate an experience of deep relaxation, feeling lighter, with reduced pain and stress.
