My Helpful Healing Touch

Healing Touch class for children
Learning about the human energy system

When the children’s book My Helpful Healing Touch (by Karen Daughtry and Darlene Nelson) was first published, I was thrilled. Any time something creative and new emerges from the Healing Touch membership or program, it is a reason to celebrate. Each idea feeds into the synergy that is fueling the spread of Healing Touch throughout the world. If you consider that children are the future, what better way to move towards Janet Mentgen’s vision for Healing Touch to be known in every household? I highly recommend this book, not only for children but for adults as well.

Not long after publication, a class was designed based on the book. Children have an innate awareness about energy before they can express it in words. When they are introduced to the concept of healing energy, they become empowered to care and comfort themselves as well as others. This family class helps parents/grandparents/caregivers and children experience the fun and wonder of using energy tools together for greater balance, harmony, and well-being.

Comments from past participants:
“I’m feeling much more calm inside.” (Zion, age 7)
“What are your favorite chakras?” (Alece, age 9) “Peace and Love!” (Vivi, age 6)
“I had a headache. Lauren got out her pink stone, put energy onto it, and moved it around my head. I did feel better afterwards.”  (Karen, Lauren’s mom)
“One evening I had a swollen knee and was in quite a bit of pain.  Zion rubbed his hands together put them close to my knee and said he was sending healing energy to my knee!  It was the most precious thing ever!” (Sheila, Zion’s mom)
