What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch (HT) is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that promotes health and well-being. HT uses light touch to influence the body's energy system thus affecting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing.

The goal in HT is to restore harmony and balance and aid in self healing. The practitioner works with the energy systems of the client including Energy Centers (chakras) and Energy Fields (auras) to improve energy flow throughout the body.

Healing Touch may:

  • Relieve side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and increase its effectiveness.
  • Reduce anxiety levels and feelings of depression.
  • Aid in relaxation and encourage the healing process before or after surgery.
  • Reduce feelings of stress, pain, or grief.
  • Boost immune function in both the client and the practitioner.

Healing Touch is NOT meant to replace standard medical treatment.

Healing Touch was developed by Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN who has been practicing energy based care since 1980 in Denver, Co.

The program of study was accepted as a Certificate Program of AHNS (American Holistic Nurses Association) in 1990.

What is Reiki?

Reiki – The Usui System of Natural Healing

​Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) is an ancient natural treatment for the improvement of the body, mind and spirit. When activated, Reiki accelerates the body's ability to heal physical ailments and opens the mind and spirit to the causes of disease, pain and disharmony. It encourages one to take responsibility for one’s life and good health.

Reiki treatments are for people with physical, emotional or spiritual needs. Reiki is a powerful, but gentle energy, and has been used to aid in healing. It does not replace traditional medicine, but rather complements the healing process.

Reiki is deeply relaxing and creates a sense of well being which increases the rate of recovery. The sensation felt by the recipient of a Reiki treatment is usually a deep feeling of warmth and comfort. One may also experience coolness, tingling sensations, vibrations, images or colours.

The treatment is a light, hands-on or hands-off process whereby a Reiki practitioner transfers universal life energy to the recipient. The treatment is safe, non-intrusive, non-invasive and supports all healing methods.
