Introduction to Healing Touch: A Gift for Self and Others

Tuesday, Nov. 29 | 6:00-8:00 PM

Healing touch was developed in the 1980s by a nurse who was talented in using energetic principles and touch for healing.  I wanted to offer this class here because I see how many people are taking care of their loved ones and what a toll it can take on a person.  I want people to feel that there is something they can do for themselves and the person they take care of that is simple, doesn’t tax your body, and  makes you both feel more renewed.  Healing touch is accredited for healthcare professionals , offering continuing education credit toward our license (please see below).  This gives the program consistency and accountability for what it teaches. However, it is something appropriate for anyone caring for a loved one.
