Dr. Monica Nebauer's Story
"My Healing Touch journey commenced over two decades ago when, as a nurse, I became aware that I needed a more holistic, gentle, and nurturing way to counteract the effects (and side effects) for my patients of the biomedical model and related technology. I found this holistic approach through learning Healing Touch, which commenced in the US in 1980 when an experienced and energetically sensitive nurse, Janet Mentgen, RN, BSN, transformed the biomedical model to include a clinical approach to energy-based practice in which the patient/client is seen as an equal partner in healing with the practitioner. This accredited program – Healing Touch Program - resonated with me and I began my journey to study the five levels of the course, followed by Practitioner Certification and then Instructor Certification.
In my practice over many years I have seen how Healing Touch restores harmony, flow and balance to the person’s energy system while supporting self-healing in body, mind, emotion and spirit. I have seen how Healing Touch has been able to facilitate healing for people of all ages and walks of life with diverse health problems, including anxiety and depression, chronic pain and trauma, during chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and during the dying process. Additionally, I have had the honour of supporting people seeking high level wellness and an enhanced spirituality. I am grateful for the blessings received through my Healing Touch journey!"
