What is Healing Touch? - August 2020

Healing Touch is an energy based approach to health and healing. We are energetic beings and when our energy is balanced and flowing freely we experience health and harmony. Through the stress of daily living our energy system can become disrupted, unbalanced and depleted and the result can be fatigue, tension, and pain or the symptoms of illness. Healing Touch uses light touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy flow surrounding the body and the energy centers that control the flow of energy into the body.

 These non invasive techniques can clear, energize and balance the human and environmental energy fields promoting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing. The goal in Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system placing the client in a position to self heal. Healing touch has been documented to:

  • Accelerate the wound healing process
  • Reduce pain
  • Alleviate anxiety and stress
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Promote deep relaxation
  • Offer support and healing during life transitions.

To receive a Healing touch session the client relaxes, fully clothed on a massage table. The practitioner will discuss the client's goals, complete an assessment of the client's energy field and proceed with a variety of healing touch techniques. Usually the client will experience a sense of deep relaxation and relief from discomfort. Healing Touch is a multi level program that moves from beginning to advanced practitioner.

 A variety of energy based modalities are taught in the first five levels. After level five there is the opportunity for certification as a Healing Touch Practitioner. This program is open to all individuals desiring an in-depth understanding and practice of healing work using energy based concepts. Participants find this work supports self development and self healing. As a nursing continuing education program it is especially beneficial to health care professionals.

Wellness Tip
Television Years
Did you know that by age 65, the average adult has spent the equivalent of 9 full years watching television? Make your TV time work for you. Combine it with physical activity or stretching. Ideas include floor exercises (push-ups, sit-ups, etc.), stationary cycling or treadmill walking, working with hand weights, resistance bands or balls, or performing a series of upper and lower body stretches.

Feed Your Cat as Nature Intended
Although commonly accepted that commercial dry food is an adequate 100% complete balanced diet for cats, I have many concerns with this line of thinking. For one, it is made with a great deal of grain or grain by-products, in most cases well over 40%.

Recipe
Sodium-Reduce Banana Bread
Category: Low or No Salt
Description: This Sodium Reduce Bannad bread recipe has only 757 mg per 12 slices that equals to 63mg per slice. To compare on bagel is about 400 mg of sodium.

If you've never experimented with different ingredients, making changes to a recipe may seem daunting. To be fair, sometimes simple changes can ruin a recipe. But with some knowledge of the ingredients' functions, you can lower the risk of having to put your creation go right from the oven into the garbage. In this banana bread recipe (and other "quick breads" like muffins), the role of salt is simply to add flavour. Therefore, removing it should only affect the taste. By comparison, in bread made with yeast, salt also control how quickly bread rises. You cannot remove it without making other changes to the recipe.
