Healing Touch Bio-field Therapy
Healing Touch is a complementary modality that facilitates the healing process, but functions from an energy perspective rather than only a physical one. The North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA) identifies an Energy Field Disturbance as a disruption in the flow of energy surrounding a person's being that results in disharmony of the body, mind and or the spirit.
Healing Touch practitioners re-align the energy flow, reactivate the mind, body and spirit connection to eliminate blockages to self-heal. Some documented benefits of Healing Touch are as follows: helps to relieve pain, accelerates post-operative recovery, relieves symptoms during and after chemotherapy, decreases depression, stress and anxiety, improves mood, improves quality of life and assists with the dying process (relaxation, peace, and acceptance). The sessions usually last about an hour. The client remains fully clothed and is treated in a lying position to allow for comfort and relaxation. Soft music is played while energy flowing through the practitioner's hands is directed to the client with a light touch on and above the body.
Because of the effective results seen over recent years, Healing Touch is now part of patient care systems in more than 25 hospital and hospice services in the United States. Hospice and hospitals that support the practice of Healing Touch as part of their integrative health care system have found that it facilitates a return of compassion to the forefront of patient care.
