My Healing Touch Beginnings
I have been a Healing Touch Practitioner since 1997.
I attended my first workshop in December of 1994, the weekend after I ‘crashed and burned’ from a stress induced illness.
I came close to cancelling my registration.
I had phoned Sandy, the nurse organizing the training, to say I would not be able to attend as planned, explaining the extent of my multi-dimensional illness.
She gently suggested that I reconsider my decision, saying a curious thing.
“Perhaps you can come with a new intention. You could come to receive Healing Touch for yourself, rather than for the purpose of learning yet one more thing with which you can help others.” I was stunned. Who was this woman and how did she know me so well?
I went to the workshop, driven there and cared for by a friend, who was also attending.
Due to my depleted state from being so ill, I easily acknowledged one of the Healing Touch foundational principles, that the work comes through me and is not from me. In fact, it seemed to me that the quality of the energy was heightened because I was an empty vessel with no energy to ‘give’.
I also noticed that being so ill, I had no energy to resist receiving from the other students and could feel the energy flowing into me.
Basics of Healing Touch
All healing is basically self-healing. Healing Touch is done through a compassionate heart, and facilitates the healing process by realigning energy flow and re-activating and harmonizing the mind-body-spirit connection to eliminate blocks to self-healing.
Healing Touch is an energy – based (biofield) therapy that works with the Human Energy System. The energy field is a blueprint of one’s life; it contains memories, thoughts, repressed emotions, physical traumas, conflicts – every experience.
Healing touch can be utilized at any point along the wellness/illness continuum and in any setting. Over the years I have worked with children, young adults, adults and the elderly, and in various settings including individual homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
About Healing Touch and Research
For a summary about Healing Touch and pertinent research
“When Donna began her work with me my life had been spiraling downhill for many years. I was reaching a breaking point when she offered me Healing Touch and her healing presence. She was the vessel that helped me allow the light from within to come out so I could find my strength again and heal. I can truly say that I would not be the person I am today without Donna’s guidance and Healing Touch.”
“I had never experienced anything like Healing Touch in my life. It has been one of the best experiences of my life. I am so grateful that Donna came into my life to help me through my surgery.”
“I have observed excellent outcomes in my patients who have received Healing Touch from Donna. The patients are more relaxed, have less anxiety and experience a smoother post-operative period.”
