The individual will lie fully clothed on a massage table while Kristie and/or Tricia gently places their hands slightly above or on the individual. The session generally lasts 60 to 90 minutes. People frequently report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful during and after the session.

How did Healing Touch begin?
Healing Touch was founded in 1989 by Janet Mentgen, a Registered Nurse. Janet had used energy-based care in her practice in Colorado since 1980. The techniques were first taught to nurses and massage therapists for their continuing education program. It eventually was offered to other health care professionals and lay persons.
The Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry Program has an established core curriculum with five levels of training and a 12 month mentorship, which leads to an advanced certification. Healing Touch has multiple techniques specific to particular conditions. Healing Touch is the only energy therapy endorsed by the American Holistic Nurse's Association. The Healing Touch curriculum is ever evolving, and supports students in broadening and deepening their skills as energy healers.
