Basics of Healing Touch
Healing Touch is a holistic, complementary and integrative energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use contact and/or non-contact touch in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Treatment works to facilitate harmony and balance in the energy system creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate tendency for healing to occur. The practitioner serves as a conduit in balancing, clearing, and working on the energetic level of a person’s well-being. It is based upon the idea that a person’s health and quality of life is directly impacted by the health and quality of their energy system and that the energy system is influenced by one’s environment, thoughts, emotions, and actions.
The healing traditions of many cultures emphasize the importance of subtle energy systems that flow through and around the human body, affecting its health and vitality. Many of these traditions stress that balancing these energy fields can assist the body, mind, and spirit in moving towards and maintaining wellness. Healing Touch is done with the client fully clothed, and may include light physical touch or sweeping hand motions above the body.
Healing Touch with LeAnn has deepened my body's process of remembering how to relax - something that was socialized out of me at a very young age. LeAnn creates safety for my cells to let go in new ways with her gentle, caring acceptance, and joy in finding the body's wisdom combined with a professionalism that holds boundaries and cultivates trust. I always feel nourished by my sessions with LeAnn!
