What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is a compassionate energy therapy in which practitioners use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and self-healing. Healing Touch uses gentle, light or near-body touch to clear, balance, energize and support the human energy system to facilitate and support healing for the whole person: mind, body, spirit. My healing journey comes from a Judeo-Christian perspective that says God is the ultimate source of all healing, and I am but an instrument, a conduit for God’s grace of healing. Healing Touch is a complementary, integrative energy therapy that can be used in conjunction with traditional therapies.
What Can You Expect From Healing Touch?
Healing Touch facilitates a deep sense of calm and relaxation as well as overall and specific responses for body-mind-spirit healing. You may feel nurtured, balanced and energized. A Healing Touch session can be given anywhere, from a chair in a client’s home to the bed in a hospital room. The session is typically administered while the client lies on a treatment table or bed with clothes on. The practitioner uses her/his hands to assess your energy system. S/he proceeds to clear and balance it as needed using either off body touch (near body but no direct contact) or a gentle (still) touch over various areas of the body. An average session may last anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, based on the client’s needs, the methods being used, setting and available time.
How Does Energy Healing Work?
Energy therapies focus on removing energy congestion that forms in our energy fields (aura) and energy centers (chakras). It re-establishes healthy energy flow through opening, connecting and balancing the human energy system.
What is the Goal of Healing Touch?
The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system thus creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur.

Healing Touch can gently but significantly impact your life.
I do sessions out of my western Minneapolis home’s healing room, but arrangements can be made for on-site sessions as well. Healings can also be done at assisted living and long term care facilities. I have experience with dementia, Alzheimers, end of life, hospice, as well as issues of anxiety, depression, ADD, ADHD in all ages. Face-to-face healing sessions most often are enhanced with the power of high quality essential oils that act in a synergistic fashion which raises energetic frequencies and to create an even more effective healing session.
Distance healing sessions are also available.
Come see for yourself the importance of prayer, intention, touch, and anointing in your healing journey. It is my intention is to return healing to its rightful role in Christianity as I explore the mystery of the sacred art of healing from ancient traditions to modern applications.
