WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HEALING TOUCH
Healing Touch is done without the use of invasive procedures such as injections, inserting tubes, medication or surgery.
Research has shown that Healing Touch facilitates the relaxation response and enhances the healing process.
Medications can cause side effects and must be monitored. Healing Touch restores balance and harmony to our natural biofield without the use of pharmaceuticals.
HEALING TOUCH FOR STRESS, ANXIETY & PTSD
Research studies suggest that Healing Touch is effective for physical and mental relaxation, pain management, stress reduction, anxiety and increasing one's sense of wellbeing.
Healing Touch promotes relaxation. When your body relaxes endorphins are released from the brain, which helps the muscles to relax. When the muscles relax circulation is improved and the increased blood flow elevates oxygen levels throughout the body. This, in turn, allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently, enzymes are built to aid digestion, hormones are regulated, and toxins are released from the body. This also allows healthy cells to regenerate and promote a sense of well-being which then supports healing and regulates the immune system
All of our life experiences are recorded and stored in the energy system, which includes the physical body as well as the energy field. Since we are more than just a physical body, we cannot separate the physical from the emotional, mental or spiritual aspects of ourselves. When we are physically not well, we are also affected emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Likewise, when we are feeling emotional about something we often feel it in our physical body such as getting a headache, feeling nauseous or having trouble sleeping. It is important to treat the body, mind, emotion, and spirit as a whole. Healing Touch effects the whole person.
Healing Touch is not a substitute for medical treatment. It is never considered to be a cure. Healing Touch complements conventional medical care and helps the body heal.
HEALING TOUCH & CANCER TREATMENT
Healing Touch is a safe and non-invasive therapy that complements traditional, standard care and is recognized by NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.
Many cancer centers are now offering healing touch as an integrative treatment for cancer. Healing Touch is referred to as "alternative treatment". It is not used "instead" of traditional treatments for cancer, but rather can be combined with conventional treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
Healing Touch has been shown to have a positive effect on cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy or hormone therapy. Reduction of anxiety and depression, improved pain management, enhanced spiritual development, increased energy, improved fatigue, nausea, and vomiting, are just some of the results clients have experienced.
