Therapeutic Touch

Therapeutic Touch is an energy therapy where practitioners help clients elicit their natural relaxation response, promoting healing and reducing pain and anxiety. Therapeutic Touch™ is a registered trademark in Canada for the standardized healing practice performed by practitioners trained to be sensitive to the receiver's energy field that surrounds the body, where no touching is required.

Practitioners of Therapeutic Touch state that by placing their hands near a client, they are able to detect and manipulate the client’s energy field. Research and experience have shown that Therapeutic Touch is effective in eliciting a relaxation response, reducing anxiety, changing the perception of pain and facilitating the body's natural restorative process, bringing about an improved sense of well being and providing comfort during stressful times.

In a state of health, life energy flows freely in and out of each person. In a state of injury or disease, the flow of energy is obstructed, disorderly or depleted. Therapeutic Touch practitioners influence the energy flow to restore the integrity of the field and to help move it towards wholeness and health. All therapeutic sessions take place in our relaxing and peaceful Shanti Space.

Therapeutic Touch may be covered under your health plan! You will be treated by Nicole Roy, a Level III Therapeutic Touch Practitioner. Enjoy!
