The gift of Healing
Healing Touch Energy Healing is a relaxing, nurturing modality that uses gentle touch to assist in balancing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with, is complementary to, and may be integrated with standard medical care.
Healing Touch (HT) uses the gift of touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body. The non-invasive techniques employ the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It is based on a heart-centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client’s health and healing.
The HT curriculum was developed by Janet Mentgen, BSN, RN, as an energy therapy continuing education program for nurses with the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) in 1989. In 1996, Healing Touch International (HTI, now called Healing Beyond Borders) was established as the certification body for healthcare professionals—a significant benchmark in professionalization. HT is now a continuing-education, multilevel program in energy-based therapy taught by certified instructors. Continuing education is recognized through the AHNA and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB).
Education and credentialing in Healing Touch is provided by Healing Touch International, Inc., a non-profit organization with a mission of dedicated service to the public trust. Healing Touch Practitioners adhere to an International Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. It is a board-certified program that is taught internationally.
Research continues to build the evidence base of positive outcomes in response to Healing Touch. Click here to look at some of the research that has been compiled by Healing Beyond Borders showing studies about Healing Touch.
Our first session
We start with communication. The first session involves a confidential consultation in addition to the Healing Touch session. I will visit with you and will ask a series of questions about your physical, mental, and emotional situation, and will answer questions about Healing Touch. The more that we can take a look at your current situation and your past life events, the better I am able to help you. Often times, your current state of wellness (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) is tied to unresolved experiences in your past that are still held by your physical body. By going into detail during our consultation, I glean insights about how we will proceed in our sessions.
Then we start the session. I start each session based on the goals that we mutually establish during each intake conversation. You will be either seated, or lying on a massage table – depending on the situation.
The first thing that I do is perform an energetic assessment to gather information on your energy field and energy centers which I will share with you before my work begins. Then, as you relax and I start my work, I move forward with the appropriate techniques that correspond to our goals and the energies that I am sensing. I focus on removing energy congestion that form in our energy fields (aura) and energy centers (chakras). Once these imbalances and disturbances are cleared, the energy channels resume their task of integrating the body, mind and soul to restore health and promote healing.
The research suggests Healing Touch is beneficial in calming anxiety and reducing symptoms of depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, enhancing recovery from surgery, complementing care for neck and spine problems, deepening spiritual connection, supporting cancer care, creating a sense of well-being, easing acute and chronic conditions, and supporting resiliency in health care providers.
In some instances, one session leaves the client with the desired outcomes, while in other cases clients continue with regular sessions to get to a point where the underlying conditions are able to be addressed to return to optimum health. Also, I provide appropriate recommendations and referrals to other healthcare providers when I feel that my clients could benefit by additional therapies.
What my clients say…
If you’re on the fence about working with Kevin, just DO IT! He is a magnificent coach and my time spent with Kevin was both healing and powerful. I walked in to our conversation with fear of success, which was leaving me stuck. Kevin walked alongside me to name my fear and claim my power. Not only did I have restored confidence after our time together, but left with actionable next steps. I’m very practical in nature, and Kevin honored my desire to leave with both tangible and intangible results.
My first session was today and it was fabulous! Kevin is so down to earth and understanding. I felt at complete ease during my time with him. After the session, I was at peace, calm and relaxed. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in Energy Healing.
Kevin is absolutely amazing. My entire session felt as if I was catching up with an old friend. Kevin is kind, professional and is a wonderful healer. I have had the opportunity to receive Reiki from multiple healers and Kevin is the only one who spent time with me, asked deep questions to learn how he could truly help me and then created such a relaxing environment which allowed me to receive the healing that I needed. Kevin is the best!
I went to see Kevin for anxiety, stress and physical symptoms from working with the public during these difficult times. I cannot put into words the sense of peace and safety I felt when I first met him. I am a total loner and it is very hard to open up to others. Well, that was all washed away in the initial meeting on his patio. Kevin is a blessed and gifted human being/spirit here in Lafayette. I have seen him almost weekly in the last two months. Initially, the anxiety was so high I was a ball of stress and physical pain. That is all gone! And, every day I feel stronger, calmer and happier! But, as he cleared and aligned my chakras other issues have popped up, and little by little we are dealing with them. I have a lot of work to do on honoring and loving my self; and on setting healthy boundaries…..and, I also have a goal to stop smoking cigarettes. I am focused and determined to live my best life possible, and Kevin has been the key and opportunity to do so. . I had been praying for such help, thank you Loving Father! Kevin has been a prayer answered, and with his gifts and support I am managing my pains, anxieties and boundaries; I am accomplishing my goals and getting healthier and happier every day! I highly recommend you give yourself the gift of experiencing his God-given gifts and blessings! Best wishes to you, Ann
I met Kevin through some conversations regarding alternative healing modalities, etc. While we were conversing, the discussion turned to some pain in my back that I was experiencing at that moment. Kevin asked if I wanted him to demonstrate his (remote) healing by working on my back. This fascinated me, and I agreed to allow him to do so. Not only was the pain alleviated, but I was able to feel and experience his energy. It was amazing to say the least. We have remained in contact over the past year, and he has always been willing to assist my friends and family with his gifts. Currently, he has been assisting with a friend who is in bad shape at the hospital with Covid-19. Kevin is an amazing friend, healer, and person. I am grateful to call him my friend, and would recommend him to anyone seeking an alternative to traditional healing.
A month ago, during the holidays, I got my first treatment. I have suffered chronic lower back pain for years and after many therapies and visits to the doctors I had learned to live with it. So, I wasn’t sure what to expect from my first visit and let me tell you…my pain is gone! I do not know or understand the science behind it, but suffice to say that it works. I can’t recommend Kevin highly enough; he’s very professional and personable.
Kevin is one of the truly gifted gems that we have right here in Lafayette! His presence is authentic, peaceful, loving, empathetic, healing and safe. I trust Kevin completely and intuitively feel that he has my greatest good in mind and wants nothing more than to help humans heal from deep wounds they may not even realize are affecting their lives. I highly recommend scheduling a session with Kevin even if you have no idea what to say or where to start. He will put you at ease and guide you through the process at your comfort level.
As a Healing Touch Apprentice, I have worked with many students and energy healers. I have never experienced the energy and natural healing as I did while working with Kevin, both as practitioner and as client. He is a natural, empathic healer and I look forward to working with him again.
Website was very professional. Appointment with Kevin was comfortable, soothing, and insightful. I highly recommend him.
I love Kevin’s way of expressing himself and him being able to communicate in a conscious way. I love his presence … he is solid and loving, listening attentively and gives great feedback. I trust this guy to spread love in this world!
Kevin is a very empathic and careful listener, he has this presence that makes you feel better and safe immediately. His dedication to others will make him help many people for sure.
Kevin is a very serious student of healing and has a focused, caring presence when treating clients.
Kevin is a great listener and provides a relaxed, comfortable environment for the healing sessions. I felt rejuvenated and calm! I highly recommend meeting Kevin and trying a session.
If I had to go and use words to describe the experience I had with Kevin it would be a heartfelt, warm and healing experience. Kevin’s support was well received. If you’re on this page already, I believe it is a sign for you to get in contact and experience it for yourself. Blessings to all, Nick
Meeting the challenges of COVID-19 with Remote Healing Sessions…
I find that the need for healing now is so much greater than before, with all of the additional challenges and stresses brought about by COVID. In addition to sessions in my healing space, I also offer healing sessions remotely for clients no matter where they live. Here is an example of a client’s experience with a remote healing session with me…
“I met Kevin through some conversations regarding alternative healing modalities, etc. While we were conversing, the discussion turned to some pain in my back that I was experiencing at that moment.

If you seek help addressing any physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual issues, I invite you to contact me to see if we can work together. (I offer both in-person sessions and remote sessions.)
