Healing Touch is an integrative medicine therapy where practitioners use their hands above the body or by lightly touching the body to support physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. It’s different from massage because there is little to no pressure applied to the body and clients are fully clothed. The non-invasive techniques allow a practitioner’s hands to clear, energize and balance the human energy system to facilitate health and healing. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore balance and harmony to the body to encourage self-healing.
