UW Health Integrative Health Healing Touch: man receiving a head massageUW Health Integrative Health'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.
 

Treatment

 
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.
 

Benefits

 
Healing Touch is appropriate for all age groups. Participants often report: 
  • Increased sense of physical and mental relaxation
  • Reduction in anxiety and perception of stress
  • Decreased levels of pain and tension
  • Improved overall sense of well-being
