Reiki ~ Therapeutic Touch
You brush your teeth each day, and take baths or showers, exercise and eat well. But part of being healthy has to do with maintaining a healthy energy system. Electromagnetic fields are everywhere, and permeate everything. Daily you are subjected to hydro EMF's, cell phones, microwaves, wiring in your home, computers, and a host of other EMF's. Learn more about the danger of EMF's
Being in close proximity to other people (especially negative people!) or simply watching the evening news can have detrimental effects on your energy field, too. Learn more about your energy field, how it works, and how energy therapies can help you
Variations of energy therapies include Usui Reiki, Karuna, Imara, Blue Star, Shamballa, Gendai-Reiki-Ho, Threshold Reiki, Seichim. Ki Kou, Zenith Omega, Qi Kung, Quantum Touch, Shamanic Healing, Healing Touch, Therapeutic Touch, and Magnified Healing
Although there are many different Energy healing modalities, they all work basically the same. Energy therapies simultaneously address emotional, psychological, energetic and physical. That's because you ARE energy. Your body is really comprised of billions of vibrating atoms!
On a physical level, your own electro-magnetic energy naturally draws hemoglobin (iron + oxygen) to injured tissue, thereby increasing oxygen exposure for tissue regeneration and lower pH
At the atomic level, your own electro-magnetic energy excites photons in the cells, causing energy impulses that travel instantly throughout the body to interact with regulatory systems such as the endocrine and nervous systems. Beneficial neuropeptides are released including endorphins, which are natural pain killers. Toxins are released from cells. The body’s immune functions and rapid self-healing mechanisms are induced.
Because they stabilize your electromagnetic energy, Energy Therapies help to reduce free radicals. Every atom’s optimum level of vibration is restored. The result is harmonization of your entire body. Healing accelerates by as much as 250%! You feel relaxed, alert, and vitally alive.
Quite often an emotional blockage or trauma will release during or after treatment. This is particularly helpful for people who have undergone trauma through an accident or injury, or health issues that stem from an emotional or psychological cause.
Excellent to reduce stress, heal emotional trauma, and to promote recovery or minimize side-effects, energy therapies are an ideal adjunct to traditional medical procedures such as surgery or cancer therapy. They can be performed anywhere, with or without the use of high-tech devices, and generally do not require disrobing. In some cases, practitioners may not even physically touch you. Quantum energy Therapies are also excellent for treating animals.
Training and certification requirements vary for each modality. Please ask each practitioner about their qualifications

Using their body's own electro-magnetic field like a magnet, practitioners gently pass their hands over a person's body with or without touching it. Photons in the cells respond, causing energy impulses to travel instantly throughout the body, interacting with regulatory systems such as the endocrine and nervous systems. The body's immune systems and rapid self healing mechanisms are induced. Beneficial neuropeptides are released, including endorphins, which are the body's natural pain killers. Oxygen-rich hemoglobin is attracted to injured tissue, thereby increasing oxygen exposure for tissue regeneration
Clothing does not interfere in a treatment. Treatment is relaxing and entirely painless. The only sensation may be some tingling

Therapeutic Touch is a quantum energy healing technique that is entirely painless. It was developed in the early 1970's by Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N., an American Professor of Nursing, and her mentor, the late Dora Kunz, a well-respected "natural" healer. Therapeutic Touch was first conceived as an extension of professional nursing care and marked the first time in history that 'laying-on-of-hands' was taught as a full-time university subject.
Twenty-five years of effective clinical practice and solid research has resulted in mainstream acceptance of Therapeutic Touch. Today there are more than 18 Ph.D. Theses on Therapeutic Touch and 22 Post-Doctoral Therapeutic Touch Research Projects. Many Canadian hospitals recognize Therapeutic Touch and allow its use. The Order of Nurses of Quebec, the Ontario College of Nurses and the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) have accepted Therapeutic Touch as a nursing modality. In many Canadian hospitals it is used in Oncology and Maternity, with organ transplant, in Intensive Care Units, and on the wards.
Therapeutic Touch promotes relaxation, reduces anxiety, and often diminishes pain, making it especially useful in hospice work. There are no harmful side-effects, and some benefit is always attained. Local Therapeutic Touch Networks offer FREE treatments by students who are working on their practicum.
