Healing Touch was developed by Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN (1938-2005) during
her nursing career. In this therapy, the practitioner identifies imbalances
and corrects a person's energy by using light touch over main energy
centers and passing his or her hands over the fully clothed patient.
Healing Touch employs a collection of energy based treatment techniques
to assess and treat the energy system, thus affecting physical, emotional,
mental, and spiritual health and healing.
Benefits of Healing Touch
The purpose of healing touch is to help restore harmony and balance while
aiding self-healing. The practitioner works with the chakras and auras
to help improve flow throughout the patient’s body.
While Healing Touch is not meant to replace traditional treatment, it can help:
- Relieve the negative side effects of chemotherapy and radiation
- Improve the effectiveness of chemo / radiation
- Reduced stress, anxiety, pain, depressions, and grief
- Improve relaxation and encourage healing pre or post surgery
- Boost immune function
Healing Touch is a nurturing energy therapy that promotes a cancer patient’s
health and well-being. The program of study was accepted as a Certificate
Program of American Holistic Nurses Association in 1990 and has been recognized
for its impact on patients since that time.
