Various alternative therapies such as massage, acupuncture and reiki work with the energy of the body. Healing Touch, sometimes known as Therapeutic Touch, is energy work in which a practitioner uses the hands to promote energy balance. Healing Touch is non-invasive and non-toxic. It is a recognized complementary integrative energy therapy by the National Center for Complementary Alternative Medicine through the National Institutes of Health. Energy balance supports physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and enhances the body’s ability to self-heal. It can be used concurrently with your your traditional medical care. During a session you remain fully-clothed while positioned on a massage table, bed or in a chair. The practitioner balances the energy of the body using light touch on or off the body. A session usually lasts from 20 minutes to 60 minutes depending on the client’s needs.
