Creating a Healing Practice by Janet Mentgen

Creating a Healing Practice

There are many things to consider when creating a healing practice. The practice needs to fit with your personality, your lifestyle, your values. Rushing into a practice is often costly and unsuccessful. Spend the necessary time imaging how your practice is to look. Work your plan on paper many times before making any financial investment. Set your goals and plans with an orientation to the future. Think about the practice in terms of the first year and years to come.b2ap3_thumbnail_samaritan-1178513-m.jpg

Definition of practice

A descriptive definition of the practice is a first step. Some types of practice include:

• private practice

• practice within a work setting – hospital, clinic

• practice with family or friends

• volunteer practice – hospice, cancer, A.I.D.S.

• church or ministry practice – parish nurse

• educational practice – teaching

Develop a vision of your practice

Being able to image your practice is helpful. Let it develop like a dream or visualization. Examine all aspects of the image and see yourself practicing successfully in the space.

I was recently invited to be part of Healing Touch Program’s Elder Council and asked if I would be willing to write about my experiences in the early days of Healing Touch. I am honored to share some memories.

It seems like both yesterday – and a very long time ago – that I received a telephone call from my friend, Dinny Riegel, insisting that I attend a workshop in Gainesville, Florida. Two and a half years earlier I had moved from Illinois to North Carolina, but before leaving NC, I had learned about energy healing from Alan Mesher. I had shared this new knowledge with Dinny and Jan Shepardson. All of us were blown away by the work and wanted to learn more. In 1989, I had just finished massage school and opened a private practice when the call came from Dinny. She and Jan had just returned from a pilot workshop for a new program called Healing Touch and were determined that I would go to the first “official” Level 1 class to be held outside of Colorado – the very next weekend! Dinny even insisted on paying my tuition. How could I say no?? I met Dinny’s daughter, Dory, on the way, and off we went to Gainesville.

Using Healing Touch with Trauma

Posted by on in Energy Magazine

Originally published in Energy Magazine: The official Publication of the Healing Touch Program February 2009.  Greetings from Cynthia Hutchison Healing Touch Program Director

This technique was a radical departure from traditional cognitive, behavioral and emotional cathartic therapies and — it worked. Janet didn’t know how it worked. All she knew was that it eliminated long-term symptoms of traumatic stress in over 100 people who had suffered from traumatic injuries. She would tell us to just do the work and that the science behind it would follow. She was right. Discoveries in neurophysiology research have recently validated this powerful technique.
