Healing Touch
Integrative Care Program
Expanding Healing in Healthcare

You can transform healthcare with Integrative Care and Healing Touch.
The Healing Touch Integrative Care Program (ICP) is dedicated to increasing the health and well-being of patients and staff in healthcare. 
Improve Patient Care 
Healing Touch is an evidence-based, safe option that effectively relieves pain and reduces anxiety. Nurses, physicians and other healthcare providers can easily and quickly administer Healing Touch as they provide routine bedside care. Reducing medication provides the patient many benefits. 

Increase Provider
Satisfaction and Retention
Healthcare professionals that provide Healing Touch as part of routine care  see their patients’ comfort improve quickly.  Using a non-invasive method to reduce pain and anxiety is extremely rewarding for the caregiver. Nurses who use Healing Touch for patient care, and those who receive it while at work, report a higher level of job satisfaction. Healing Touch supports caregivers at work by reducing pain, fatigue and trauma symptoms.

Achieve Administrative Goals
Providing quality care and managing resources effectively are critical to healthcare administrators. Providing integrative care supports: 
• Higher patient satisfaction scores
• Improved pain management
• Opioid reduction
• Reduced readmission rates
• Increased nurse satisfaction and retention
• Innovative care options to meet patient demand
• Achieving and maintaining Joint Commission and Magnet standards

Hi, I’m Sue Walker, Director of the Healing Touch Integrative Care Program.

I have the joy of hearing from many healthcare professionals how Healing Touch has changed their lives in so many ways. Providing Healing Touch to patients helps nurses/ health care providers feel connected at a deeper level and gives them the tools to make a profound difference in a gentle, caring way.

There are many aspects in healthcare today that impact the care provided to patients. I have nurses who tell me they feel like "drug pushers" and that using a non-invasive treatment like Healing Touch to significantly reduce pain and anxiety is one of the most rewarding things they can do for patients.

A fundamental aspect of Healing Touch is awareness of self and attention to self-care. Using Healing Touch for self-care throughout the training program guides students in paying more attention to their own needs. We all know that when our reservoir is critically low or empty, we are not able to perform to the best of our abilities and be as present as we would like in our work and personal lives.

As one of our Healing Touch practitioners says, “I am the best person I can be when I am doing Healing Touch.”

One of the great things about Healing Touch is that as you do it for another person, you are receiving benefit yourself. You are helping yourself as you help another and this is the true definition of “win-win”.

Patients are asking for integrative therapies and are using them broadly to support their health, healing and wellness. Providing safe, effective, gentle evidence-based options that support the immune system and body’s natural healing process improves patient care in incredible ways. With integrative care, we can provide higher quality care at less cost and with benefits to the caregiver as well as the patient.

We recognize the miraculous abilities of the human body and acknowledge the extraordinary potential for healing of self and others that exists within each of us. Healing Touch is transforming healthcare for patients and healthcare professionals .

Comments from Nurses who provide Healing Touch to patients…
"I have experienced Healing Touch significantly helping many patients with acute surgical incisional pain, quadriceps muscle spasms of the affected sides and for phantom pain. One particular male patient in his 60's presented with significant peripheral vascular disease in both lower legs. Attempts to increase the peripheral blood flow in Interventional Radiology by dilating some of the vessels had limited results. The nursing staff requested I see him for acute pain not being resolved by Morphine IV every 3-4 hours. He rated the pain a 12/10 and anxiety/agitation 20/10. I provided a Healing Touch with the lights dimmed and soft music playing and at the end of the treatment session his pain and anxiety both had decreased to 0/10. He received Healing Touch again post-surgery and his pain decreased from 8/10 to 1/10 and anxiety from 8/10 to 0/10. When I checked him later in the day, his primary nurse said that he did great with Physical Therapy and did not need any further medication for pain. "

"I worked with a breast cancer patient at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD who was in chronic pain and her medications were not keeping her pain under control.

 In her own words, “I had been in debilitating pain since my breast cancer was removed in 2005 and the only diagnosis had been muscular/skeletal pain. I have been to a pain management specialist and had the back injections with absolutely no relief; a neurologist who could do nothing but referred me to an osteopathic doctor who as able to help me with the rib pain. Healing Touch actually stopped my rib pain and made me feel alive throughout my body.”

I have been a certified nursing assistant for over a year. When I first started my job I felt that I had nothing to offer for patients like registered nurses or doctors do. Through healing touch and aromatherapy, I am able to be apart of care plans of hospital patients. To know that my hands and energy can bring relief of anxiety, frustration, fear, and pain to cancer patients, post surgical patients and hospital guests brings me joy. If I feel in my heart that a patient needs good energy I offer healing touch and it distracts them from what ever they are thinking at the moment. Fear of an upcoming procedure, having nobody to sit next to them while receiving chemotherapy or just pain. Even though I've only taken Level 1 Healing Touch, my energy and soul feel strong enough to bring relief to hospital patients.

"As a professional pediatric and adult care nurse, I researched nationally accredited programs that would teach me ways to empower my clients/patients in their individual healing needs and self care. The Healing Touch Program curriculum offered this and so much more!
 As a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner and Instructor, I have once again fallen in love with my profession and returned to what I have always known: Our hands are extensions of our Hearts' work. How fortunate I am to be able to share Healing Touch with my peers and with clients/patients in a professional health care environment. Thanks to Healing Touch, my "joy meter" is continuously on the upswing when I walk in to start each day!"

What patients have to say about their 
experience with Healing Touch...
I discovered Healing Touch at one of the most challenging points in my life, when I found myself diagnosed with osteosarcoma (a form of bone cancer) at the age of seventeen. I was very skeptical of the concept when it was first introduced to me as I did not know about or believe in the existence of energies, but eventually decided to give it a try. 

The first session that I had was the first time that I had been out of unbearable pain in months, and immediately began to have regular sessions. These sessions expanded to focus on other symptoms that I was experiencing such as nausea, insomnia, general cloudiness (often called chemo-brain), and even clearing my body from anesthesia and chemotherapy medications. 

Just like the pain relief, I found almost instant and complete symptom relief through the use of Healing Touch, which aided in the effects of the other more traditional medical interventions that I was receiving. There are no doubts in my mind that Healing Touch provided me with a far more positive experience with both my treatments and the following recovery process.

More Patient Experiences With Healing Touch...
I was recently in a car accident in which I was injured. My back and neck were in pain most of the time. I thought I would give Healing Touch a try. I had no idea what to expect. I went in with pain at about a six [on a scale of 10] and by the end of my hour with the HT Practitioner, my pain has decreased to a one. It was wonderful. It was non-invasive and she would gently touch "energy points" on my body. She could tell exactly where my pain was (with out me telling her) and focused gently on those areas.

A female patient in her 50's admitted with acute leg pain secondary to neuropathy from previous back injury. The nursing staff consulted me [HTCP] saying she was getting Morphine IV every 2 hours and "It's not touching her pain." She was sitting up in bed with her legs swollen and too sensitive to be covered. She was frustrated and tired from lack of sleep. During the Healing Touch session, she became quiet and fell asleep snoring. The next day when I checked on her she was sitting up in the bed, smiling. She said, "I slept 3-4 hours after you left and did not need any pain medicine  until bed time and I have not needed any today. Look at my legs, the swelling is gone and I can touch them." That afternoon she was discharged. 
AMAZING experience! This Healing Touch  therapy had a profound and long lasting relaxing effect on me. It transcended the physical realm and had a very powerful calming mental and emotional effect. I began sleeping better after this session. I finally felt brave enough to try sleeping without Ambiena and my sleep has improved every day since. 
I had rather extensive skin cancer surgery on my face, involving a large excision area and a replacement skin graft from my throat. I was quite amazed and pleased (and so was the plastic surgeon) at the apparent beneficial effects of this therapy [Healing Touch]. In addition, all the bruising, swelling, and tenderness associated with such surgeries decreased almost immediately (48 hours) and disappeared in about a week. To say that Healing Touch was a valuable aid and help for me during this time would be a major understatement. And as a hidden benefit and in addition to the obvious palliative physical effects, I found that HT provided me a depth of peacefulness, calmness, acceptance, and "balance" that were and are invaluable.
