Healing Touch is a type of alternative healing using hands-on and energy-based techniques to balance and align the human energy field. It uses touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body and the energy centers that control the energy flow from the energy field to the physical body. These are non-invasive techniques that utilize the hands to clear, energize and balance the human energy field thereby affecting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing. It is based on a relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client's health and healing. The goal in Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system, placing the client in a position to self heal. Healing Touch complements conventional health care and is used in collaboration with other approaches to health and healing.
