Therapeutic Touch and Reiki are holistic, evidence-based therapies. These healing arts are a powerful adjunct to conventional therapeutic modalities that fuel the body’s homeostatic mechanism to establish balance and healthy energy flow, thereby allowing the awakening of the patient’s own natural healing ability. When the energy field is restored to normalcy, the body and mind tend to follow, assisting in the restoration of balance at the physical, mental and emotional levels.

During a Therapeutic Touch or Reiki session, the hands of the practitioner are placed either lightly on a patient’s body or slightly above the body, depending on the patient’s preference. Physical touch need not occur. The practitioner’s hands gently move through the energy field with the intent to heal and, as areas of energy disturbance in the field are uncovered, the practitioner uses light hand movements to open and remove these disturbances.This interaction tends to reestablish balance and healthy energy flow while it awakens one's own natural healing ability. The fee for Therapeutic Touch is $22 per 30 minutes session.
