  • Right Relationship and Wise Speech in Ethical Communication forHTP Practitioners and Students

    In addition to the four Level 1, 2, 3, and 4/5 Notebooks with their wealth of knowledge and wisdom within, Healing Touch Program (HTP) has two well-known documents to guide the practice of Healing Touch. These documents are the Code of Ethics and Scope of Practice which are found in each of the workshop Notebooks, as well as provided separately on the HTP website. For many years, these documents have guided those studying and practicing Healing Touch in many diverse geographical and cultural settings. In addition to those documents, more recently, Healing Touch practitioners and students have received additional support and guidance by the provision of the following document found in the Student/Practitioner section of the HTP website: Healing Touch Program Policy and Procedure for Implementing Healing Touch. 2 Together, these documents are provided to support and guide practitioners and students of Healing Touch in their understanding of ethical practice within the legal parameters that apply in their geographical location. While it is one thing to know what to do in certain situations, it is not so clear to know how to do what is required ethically and professionally. Therefore, this current document now seeks to add to and deepen the available resources by providing a philosophical and theoretical framework that will help practitioners and students know how to relate ethically and professionally to themselves, and to others in their healing community.

    What is Healing Touch Healing Touch is a holistic therapy that helps to restore and balance energy that has been depleted, due to stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery or medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the human energy system by creating an optimal environment to enable the body's innate tendency for healing to occur. ​ Healing Touch is for the health professional or layperson who wants to enhance wellness in themselves and the lives of people they care about by using the gift of energetic touch. Learning Healing Touch will enable you to offer comfort and relief when nothing else seems to help. You will possess a life-changing gift that you can give over and over again, once you have mastered simple, easy-to-learn steps and techniques that support health and facilitate the healing process. ​ Healing Touch is non-invasive with no invasive procedures such as injections or surgery, as well as non-toxic as it restores balance and harmony to the person’s biofield without the use of pharmaceuticals. Healing Touch is effective, as research has revealed its benefits include it: facilitates the relaxation response, enhances the healing process, and facilitates a deep sense of calm. Finally, Healing Touch is economical as it can be provided in any setting – whether hospital, clinic, community or home – without the need for any equipment or substances. The only requirements are that the practitioner has an open-heart, willing hands, and a desire and intent to be of help to the client for their healing and highest good. ​ Becoming a Healing Touch practitioner requires a commitment to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Practitioners embrace the concept that learning and growth are a part of our everyday lives and thus we are always learning and growing no matter how many years of education and practice in which we have engaged. ​ Level 1 is the beginning of your journey. It provides you with a foundational understanding of the human energy system, the energetic connection between mind, body, and spirit, and twelve (12) simple, yet highly effective hands-on techniques to promote healing, health and wellbeing for yourself and others.

What are some of the benefits of Healing Touch therapy? ​ Our overall health and quality of life are affected by our energy systems. In Healing Touch therapy, practitioners use their hands to help restore balance and harmony through working with the human energy field or life force. Healing Touch practitioners clear, balance and energise the client’s energy field, thereby placing the client in a position to initiate or accelerate the self-healing process. Through heart-centred intention and skill, practitioners use their hands to re-establish the natural flow of energy. Healing Touch practitioners do not force or push energy but allow balance and harmony to “reboot” the energy system. In doing so, clients may find that the treatment: Reduces pain Reduces anxiety Enhances recovery from surgery Improves mobility after surgery Relieves tension, stress and depression Provides support during chemotherapy and radiation therapy Strengthens the immune system Reduces the effects of trauma and chronic pain Supports the dying process Deepens spiritual connection Reduces the length of hospital stays
