COVID-19 Guidelines for Healing Touch In-Person Sessions
I developed the following guidelines for Healing Touch sessions at my office in Cincinnati based on information from the Energy Medicine Professional Association, the CDC, and the state of Ohio.
Ahead of your scheduled appointment, I will send a payment link and all required forms by email and ask that you pay in advance and return forms via email.
I will wear a face mask throughout the session and ask that you do as well (adjusted as needed if you lie on front during the session).
Surfaces and treatment table will be wiped and disinfected after each client and fresh linens (incl. blankets) used for each client.
Healing room will be sprayed with disinfectant and ventilated between clients.
I ask that you reschedule, and I will do so as well, if any of the following occur in the 24 hours prior to the appointment: fever of 100°F or above; respiratory or flu symptoms, sore throat, or shortness of breath; chills, muscle aches; new loss of taste or smell; new rashes or lesions, OR if contact occurred during the previous two weeks with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or experiencing similar symptoms.
When you arrive for your appointment, please call me on the phone to discuss your status and desires for the session. Please remove your shoes upon entering the healing room and use hand sanitizer (20-30 seconds) before lying on the treatment table.
Healing Touch uses light or near-body touch while you lie fully clothed on a table or sit in a chair, to create inner calm when . . .
. . . a diagnosis or a loss or any other transition alters your life and maybe your sense of self too. Remember, even happy events can be anxiety producing (i.e. new baby, new job, moving). Taking time to process emotion fosters peace of mind.
. . . you’re a caregiver or parent, a helping professional or volunteer, a leader, or an activist, and the work makes you exhausted and perhaps anxious at times. Caring for yourself is essential to sustain your service.
. . . you’re in cancer treatment or have had surgery or are injured, as a complement to medical care. When you relax, you have less pain and can recover faster. In fact, several hospitals in Cincinnati (as well as around the country) offer Healing Touch to patients.
What is Healing Touch? It’s based on an unseen but palpable field of energy that surrounds and permeates our bodies. You may have heard of chakras and meridians and auras. These terms all relate to this field of energy that creates and reflects our state of wellness.
I know, it sounds a bit woo-woo, but think about it this way: Have you ever come out of an intense meeting or conversation and thought, “I’m so drained.” Or, on the flip side, how do you feel after a walk in the woods or lunch with a good friend – refreshed, ready for anything? Those responses reflect your energy.
Healing Touch is simply a more intentional way to clear and balance our energy, to open up our body’s innate self-healing potential. It creates deep relaxation that loosens muscle tension and increases blood flow so that more oxygen and nutrients are reaching our cells and more toxins are being released, which relieves stress and anxiety, strengthens immunity, and supports overall well-being.
