Introduction to Healing Touch
This informative and experiential class will increase your knowledge about energy medicine and Healing Touch. Enhance your life and the lives of those around you through understanding the energetic world in which we live and learn simple techniques that you can share.
Healing Touch is a gentle, complementary energy-based approach to health and healing. The goal is to restore harmony and balance to the human energy system through a heart-centered caring relationship and the use of contact/non-contact touch. This can greatly assist the body in its natural ability to heal.
The most common phrase one hears from people who bring Healing Touch into their community is: “Healing Touch changed my life!” Healing Touch encourages participants to experience life in a new way, a way that opens one up to a wider and deeper view of life, and a way of realizing our potential to facilitate healing in others, whether it be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
