My interest in Healing Touch began with the encouragement from a dear friend who was receiving great benefit from weekly sessions during chemotherapy treatment. Since 2011, I have completed my certification through Healing Touch Program and completed 3 levels of Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry. I have had the privilege to share Healing Touch with nursing students, psychology students, mental health providers and within religious communities.

As a certified practitioner I use a gentle, light or near-body touch in a heart-centered and intentional way to influence the human energy system to facilitate and support healing for the whole person: body, mind and spirit. Based on the client’s needs, current health status and energetic assessment, I will choose the appropriate Healing Touch intervention for the session. As a nurse, I appreciate that Healing Touch is a complementary, integrative energy therapy that can be used in conjunction with traditional therapies. I abide by a professional Scope of Practice and Code of Ethics. Research suggests that Healing Touch: reduces pain and anxiety, relieves stress and depression, creates a sense of well-being, provides support during chemotherapy, strengthens the immune system, reduces the effects of trauma and chronic pain, enhances recovery from surgery, deepens spiritual connection and supports the dying process.
