My name is Kevin and I live in Lafayette, Louisiana. I have been studying several different healing modalities for many years, and have recently embarked on a fairly rigorous certification path in Healing Touch, as taught by Healing Touch International (Healing Beyond Borders). I am apprenticing under the guidance of my mentor Mary Frost, who learned Healing Touch directly from its founder Janet Mentgen. If you or someone you know would be interested in Healing Touch sessions, please contact me for more information – I am able to perform Healing Touch in person, or as a remote session for you no matter where you live. (I also speak French in case that happens to be your preferred language.)
WHAT IS HEALING TOUCH?
Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing, heart-centered Energy Healing that uses gentle, intentional touch that assists in balancing physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. It is classified by the National Institutes of Health as a biofield therapy and nursing intervention
Healing Touch is a collection of standardized, noninvasive techniques that clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields. Healing Touch assists in creating a coherent and balanced energy field, supporting one’s inherent ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with, is complementary to, and may be integrated with standard medical care.
Research continues to build the evidence base of positive outcomes in response to Healing Touch.
WHERE IS HEALING TOUCH USED?
Healing Touch is used in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, private practices, hospices, and spas. Healing Touch was founded in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses, massage therapists, other health care professionals, and lay persons. Today, Healing Touch is taught in universities, medical and nursing schools, and other settings around the world.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A HEALING TOUCH SESSION?
The first session involves a consultation in addition to the Healing Touch session. I will ask a series of questions about your physical, mental, and emotional situation, and will answer questions about Healing Touch. This usually takes at least 30 minutes for us to get discover things that may be a little deeper than the surface issues, Then:
- if it is a remote healing session – you relax comfortably at home seated or lying down while I energetically and with intention connect with your energy fields.
- if it is an in-person session – you lay fully clothed on a massage table while I gently place my hands slightly above or on the body
Depending upon our mutually-agreed-upon goals for the session, I perform one or more specific techniques of Healing Touch. The session generally lasts 40 to 60 minutes. Because energy medicine is gentle and subtle, a client’s spiritual, mental, and emotional results often manifest sooner than physical ones. But many physical issues have at their root some non-physical origin. These physical issues can often be addressed over time by addressing deep-seated and buried/forgotten aspects of one’s life. (Some people call these Samskaras (sanskrit), which I simply refer to as undigested experiences.) Over time, multiple sessions are recommended to help clients get to “the root” or “the beginning” of these traumas.
