Healing Touch is a therapy that helps to restore and balance energy that has been depleted due to stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery, or medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system by creating an optimal environment to enable the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur.
During a Healing Touch session, I will gently place my hands on or above the person’s fully clothed body noting any sensations or imbalances to assess the energy field. Together we choose a Healing Touch technique that is appropriate for your needs. This may include light physical touch or sweeping hand motion above the body. People have many different responses to Healing Touch. Some clients feel nothing at all. Others describe sensations of moving energy, deep relaxation, or visions of images and colours. Some patients experience an emotional release such as tears; some have what they consider to be a spiritual experience or they may develop insight into specific areas of their lives. After a session is complete, clients are welcome to discuss their experience and are welcome to ask questions.
Benefits of Healing Touch
Recent research studies suggest that Healing Touch is effective for physical and mental relaxation, pain management, anxiety and stress reduction, and increasing one’s sense of vitality. Clients of Healing Touch typically report experiencing a relaxation response and often report an increased sense of well-being. Clients are welcome to request a list of the numerous research studies done on Healing Touch. Healing Touch is a non-invasive energetic technique; still being researched by traditional science, and currently has no known detrimental side effects.
What clients want to share…
I don’t have words to adequately articulate how I felt during and after the session; I was different. Physically, I was completely and deeply relaxed; my breathing was slow and even. Emotionally, my brain was quiet and calm leaving me with a sense of peace that I had never experienced before. Spiritually, I felt a strong connection to who I was created to be. I’d like to thank Wendi for her commitment to holding grace and space for her clients as she supports us on our healing journey.
Healing Touch is subtle and profound. It is leading me to reintegrate pieces of me that I have long neglected. The energy shifts allow me to be more patient and compassionate on my journey, and to allow old patterns to fall away as safety is created in my body to let them release. It is a powerful tool when you feel you need support for your growth and transformation. Your body-based wisdom leads the way, making it an innately “trauma-informed” practice. I highly recommend working with Wendi. She is a beautiful guide in the Healing Touch process.
