What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that uses gentle touch to assist in balancing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. 


Healing Touch works with your energy field to support your natural ability to heal, is safe for all ages and works in harmony with and is complementary to standard medical care.

It is a "whole person" approach where your practitioner uses light touch and non-invasive standardised techniques either on, or just off your body - whilst you are fully clothed. 

Healing Touch began last century as a continuing education for nurses in the Unites States, it has rapidly spread to be of interest to professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds.

It is being practiced worldwide throughout hospitals, nursing homes, schools, hospices, private practices, and private homes.

Medical research is continuously showing that Healing Touch can promote deep relaxation and assists the maintenance of general health and well-being as well as many other specific benefits. Most research is carried out in the US, and can be read on the Healing Beyond Borders website.
