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.

  • Infertility Issues? Start With The Guy

    I’ve lost track of the number of couples we treat at WholeHealth Chicago who are involved in one of the hormone injection/surgical procedure stops on the conveyor belt of infertility centers. Currently, it’s estimated that 15 to 20 percent of couples are struggling with infertility, half of them due to male factors. The infertility docs are nice enough and certainly well-meaning, but I note a Read More

    My beefs with endocrinologists pretty much center on how they manage thyroid gland concerns, though they rarely win prizes for managing adrenal issues either. I don’t know any endocrinologists personally and rarely refer my patients to them. Occasionally, a patient with newly diagnosed hypothyroidism (low thyroid) will want to confirm the diagnosis with an endocrinologist. I suggest she prepare for a scolding if she’s taking Read More

    If you find yourself in the waiting room of a rheumatologist, you’re likely there because your joints hurt and have been hurting, often for years. You’ve been getting by on aspirin or Advil for the pain, but with things worsening your primary care doctor suggests you should see a joint specialist, a rheumatologist. And because there’s a shortage of physicians in this specialty, your appointment Read More
