Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy. Gentle touch assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Healing Touch works with your energy field to support your natural ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care.
The deeper roots go back to prayer, the laying-on of hands and anointing with oil modeled by Jesus as a major part of his healing ministry. Healing actually fell out of Christianity over 500 years ago but is beginning to be looked at anew as many people turn to complementary forms of healthcare.
Who can benefit from your learning to be an instrument of healing? Family, friends, neighbors, fellow church members, children, teenagers, adults, the elderly, those in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, your community and not least of all, yourself.
Like the work of the early apostles and disciples, Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry is spreading to churches, hospitals, hospices, massage schools, and retreat centers throughout the U.S. The program’s unique contribution is to frame prayer, energetic healing and anointing with essential oils within a Christian tradition and to teach it in churches and spiritual settings of all denominations.

- WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION?
The first session involves a consultation as well as the energy session itself. The provider will ask a series of questions about the individual’s physical, mental, and emotional situation, and will answer any questions.
Then the individual will lie fully clothed on a massage table while the provider gently places their hands slightly above or on the individual.
The session generally lasts 40 to 60 minutes, and people frequently report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful during and after the session. There is a cumulative effect of using Healing Touch over time and regular sessions are recommended.
