Mokie, the Mayor of Circle tail, centered and relaxed in Healing Touch.
Scope of Practice
I am a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner. Healing Touch is gentle, complementary, energy based approach to health and healing that can assist in bringing a body to its natural ability to heal. I do not diagnose and I am not a physician. These sessions are not a substitute for diagnosis or treatment from a qualified health practitioner for illnesses, injuries, or other medical conditions. My services are not licensed by the state of Ohio. My practice is guided by the Healing Touch Code of Ethics and Standards of Care.
Basic Definition of Healing Touch
Healing Touch is a noninvasive energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing.
Healing Touch is a holistic, complementary and integrative energy based therapy that is accomplished through the practitioner’s use of contact and/or non-contact touch and a heart centered state of being. The healing traditions of many cultures emphasize the importance of subtle energy systems that flow through and around the body, affecting its health and vitality. Many of these traditions stress that balancing these energy fields can assist the body, mind and spirit in moving towards and maintaining wellness.
Description of a Session
During a session (which can vary in length averaging thirty to sixty minutes), I will gently place my hands on or above the clients body noting any energetic sensations to assess the energy field. I then choose a Healing Touch technique that is appropriate for the client’s needs. This may include light physical touch or sweeping hand motion above the body. There is a high likelihood that the client will experience a relaxation response during the session. A feedback discussion will follow at the end of the session. Clients have many different responses to Healing Touch. Some clients feel nothing at all during the session. Others describe sensations of moving energy, deep relaxation, feelings of being supported or nurtured, or visions of images or colors. Some clients experience an emotional release. Some experience a release a day or two after the session when they have released toxins and processed the experience.
