Healing Touch was developed by Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN of Denver, Colorado, who combined information and techniques from several sources into a formal international program of energy healing.
Today, Healing Touch is used in traditional hospitals by thousands of nurses and medical teams in most major U.S. cities. An increasing number of research studies are being conducted in U.S. hospitals and universities documenting the efficacy of energetic healing touch for a variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions.
This modality facilitates positive changes in the body’s chemical balances and physiological function by using light touch to stimulate the body’s biomagnetic fields.
In addition to providing general well-being and disease prevention, some conditions for which Healing Touch and Reiki have been used as complementary therapy include:
Neck Pain and Back Pain
Anxiety and Panic Disorder
Fracture and Wound Healing
Female Reproductive Conditions
Pre and Post Surgery
Headache & Migraines
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
