UW Health Integrative Medicine Healing Touch: man receiving a head massageUW Health Integrative Medicine's Healing Touch is a non-invasive therapy that can be included as part of a holistic approach to self-care.
 
This gentle practice may provide the recipient with mental calmness and an improved sense of well-being.

First, the practitioner conducts a short interview to learn about the individual's needs and concerns. The session takes place with the client either sitting in a chair or lying on a massage table, fully clothed, with the option of removing his/her shoes. The practitioner's hands lightly touch or are held a few inches away from the body. Most participants report feeling relaxed and calm after a session.
