Healing Touch

Healing Touch is a gentle, non-invasive form of energy work that is used to manage the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment such as fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite, pain, muscle stiffness and lymphedema.  It can be used to relax and balance the body before surgery and to speed post-operative recovery.  By promoting deep relaxation, it can increase overall energy levels and the ability to cope with challenging life events.
