Healing Touch: A Balanced Approach to Health Care

Posted 12/27/2007

Wouldn’t it be ideal to have a system of health care that focuses on the uniqueness of each person, draws on the best of ancient wisdom and modern medical expertise, maximizes wellness, and offers support when health issues arise?

Healing Touch is a holistic, energy-based approach to health and healing. It looks at patterns in a patient’s energy field and works to clear blocked energy and enhance energetic flow, which encourages healing and helps maintain optimum health. The focus is on each client as a unique person.

We’re fortunate to live in a time of phenomenal medical advances. Technology and specialization enable doctors and other health care providers to diagnose and treat patients with amazing precision.

Often, though, when the focus is primarily on physical symptoms, the person as an individual is forgotten, and symptoms are treated without attempting to identify an underlying cause. All this is complicated by the often impersonal and intimidating technology that can accompany health care procedures, and by the sheer number of people who are in need of services.

A holistic approach to health care addresses not only the physical issues, but also the emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of the person.

Everyone, regardless of age or specific health concern, can benefit from Healing Touch. In addition to addressing symptoms, it helps patients move toward deeper healing, bringing about balance and well-being. Practitioners combine a high level of training with a deep commitment to and compassion for every client.

Healing Touch also takes a collaborative approach, with practitioners easily referring patients to other health care providers, including doctors, nurses, chiropractors, and psychotherapists. In fact, Healing Touch can be the bridge between conventional and complementary/alternative medicine that makes a balanced holistic approach to health care possible.

The Healing Touch practitioners at WholeHealth Chicago are fully committed to an integrative approach to your health care. Give Healing Touch a try, and find out how it can enhance your path to wellness.
