Healing Touch - Can You See The Love?

So gentle. So gentle. Wonderful.” “You’re really magic!” “I’m so relaxed, I can’t describe it.” “I went to la la land.” Testimonials from Hospice Patients

One day, after having served hospice and palliative care families with Healing Touch and reflexology for many years, I was asked to visit with an older woman receiving hospice care who b2ap3_thumbnail_can_you_feel_the_love.jpgwas experiencing terminal agitation. I began clearing and balancing her energy field with Healing Touch, and she soon quieted down. Her daughter watched as her mother opened her sea-blue eyes wide, looked deeply into mine, and relaxed into the experience. She had not spoken clearly for days, but then she said with wonder, “Can you see it – the love? It’s so beautiful, the love.” I am forever touched by the profound connection and awe of that transcendent moment.

Healing Touch, an energy-based therapy, is gently powerful in easing the way for families confronting serious illness. It is well documented that the compassionate exchange in Healing Touch and other complementary therapies (CAM) can improve the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well being of hospice and palliative care patients. Family caregivers also benefit by being empowered with techniques to relieve symptoms of their loved one, and self-care to ease debilitating stress. For both patients and caregivers energy-based therapies can assist in allowing them to do the more subtle inner work that can gift the family with a more peaceful end-of-life experience. For this reason the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) strongly endorses the use of CAM in end-of-life care. As Valerie Hartman, Coordinator of the Holy Redeemer Hospice Complementary Therapy Program in Philadelphia and Chair of the Allied Therapy Committee of NHPCO, states, “One of the greatest benefits of comfort massage and other complementary therapies in hospice care is to break the stress response in fear and ease stress related physical symptoms in all stages of the dying process.”

Just Do The Work and See What Else Is Possible

Posted by on in Energy Magazine

 

 Originally published in Energy Magazine: The official Publication of the Healing Touch Program May Issue.  Just Do the Work and see What Else is Possible by Cindy Palajac, Hon. B.A., Dip. Adult Ed., HTCP/I

Yesterday was my day off and the farthest thing from my mind was “doing the work of Healing Touch.” I enjoyed a lovely hand reflexology treat­ment, went to the chiropractor with my daughter, had lunch and went to yoga with a girlfriend.Then around 3:00 pm, as I followed my guidance to stop by a restaurant and pick up my daughter’s pay check, I was not aware that spirit was leading me to “do the work.” When I en­tered the Huron House Restaurant the owner was on the phone with 911 because a patron was in cardiac distress. I asked if I could help and he said, “Yes, go to the back of the b2ap3_thumbnail_mother-and-son-49314-m.jpgrestaurant”. The woman in distress was sitting up but appeared disoriented. I asked for permission from her daughterto do energy healing and proceeded to hold her shoulders, comfort her with words, work up and down her spine and then hold the front of her forehead and back of her neck. I continued to do Healing Touch as we waited for the emergency squad to arrive but I became acutely aware of the distress the daughter and sister were in. I was also aware that their stress increased once the paramed­ics arrived. I encouraged them to breathe deeply and stay calm and just allowed them to talk.
