How I found Healing Touch:
In 2008, I was being treated for extreme stress, burnout, and a lifetime of chronic migraines. I was working in a Fortune 500 company (IBM) being run to bits and pieces by my job requirements and schedule; I couldn’t quite get ahead of the stress in my life. I manifested two things: a bigger job at a Fortune 100 company (SAS Institute) and an energy healer.
For three reasons, the energy healer became more important to me than my job.
First, the very first time that she held my feet many of my energetic talents and sensitivities came back to me. I was home again and my spirit was anchored back into the language and gifts that were inherent to me.
Second, because as she and I continued to work together, I realized that my migraines were no longer present. (It has been close to 10 years without one.)
Third, at some point during my treatment, my practitioner (and then to become my mentor, and then to become one of the most important guides in my professional life) encouraged me to take a class in Healing Touch – the primary modality through which she worked with me. I am now a Healing Touch Certified Instructor, Certified Practitioner, and the Executive Director of The Healing Touch Professional Association – supporting not just students but practitioners worldwide through advanced educational programs and practice support.
I use the techniques of this modality to assist in supporting many of the symptoms associated with illness, disease, pain, and physical suffering in my practice. It is a modality that lends itself to helping the body’s energy system balance in such a way that will restore access to the inherent healing wisdoms of the body.
About Healing Touch:
Healing Touch is an energy-healing modality that contains both spiritual and scientific components – it is a body, mind, and spirit therapy that supports wellness through the four primary dimensions of the individual: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It is the clinical foundation for the energy therapy that I provide and makes its way into almost every session.
Healing Touch is found in hospitals, clinics, retirement communities, spas, wellness centers, churches, and private practices around the world. This modality is finding its way into to many mainstream clinical research studies across the United States.
The Healing Touch Program is the only energy medicine program to have National Accreditations through the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and the American and Canadian Holistic Nurses Associations (AHNA) also endorse this program.
