What is Healing Touch? - August 2020

healing touch treatment

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.

Recipe
Raw Borscht Salad with Cashews Dressing
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Good ol' Beets. So readily available and oh so good for you! They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and help both build the blood and detoxify it! It combines flavors that you will find very familiar if you've ever had traditional borscht soup. In this recipe you will enjoy celery root, carrot, green onions, beets (of course) and a creamy dressing made from soaked raw cashews, lemon, pepper and dried dill.
Beet roots contain unique phytonutrient pigments. Betacyanin is the red pigment found in red Beets and betaxanthin is the yellow pigment found in yellow Beets. Both of these pigments can provide powerful antioxidant protection. Beet roots are also particularly rich in folate, a B vitamin important for a healthy heart and essential for normal tissue growth. Although they are high on the glycemic index (contain lots of natural sugar and quickly rise our blood sugar levels) they are surprisingly low in calories. And, don’t throw out your beet greens – they are an extremely nutritious vegetable. They are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which provide powerful antioxidant protection from oxidative damage to cellular structure and DNA. They, like the beet roots are rich in phytonutrients and are even richer in iron than spinach.
