Program Description

The Healing Touch Program is an international, multi-level educational program in energy based medicine therapy. The Healing Touch Program™ curriculum progresses from beginning to advanced practice. As a professionally accredited program, the curriculum encompasses increasing levels of practice and techniques, code of ethics and scope of practice.

Healing Touch is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association and the Canadian Holistic Nurses Association (CHNA). Practitioners and Instructors are certified through an independent certification process. When one completes the Healing Touch Program (after Level 5), they may apply for certification. Healing Touch Certified Practitioners are recognized internationally as having achieved a professional level of energetic therapy competence. Healing Touch Certified Practitioner (HTCP) credential has become the first Energy Medicine profession to achieve accreditation through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), the accrediting body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE).

Each level in the Healing Touch Program™ includes both didactic and experiential learning in which participants practice and share experiences using energy-based healing techniques. In addition the program encourages the developing practitioner to enhance skills and knowledge through recommended readings and practice sessions. There is also a strong commitment to personal growth and knowledge of holistic health principles.

At the completion of each official level from the Healing Touch Program™ that is taught by a Healing Touch Certified Instructor, a certificate of attendance is given. All participants who successfully complete the core curriculum through Level 5 receive a Certificate of Completion issued by the Healing Touch Program™ Director. This recognizes the work completed in the program and the use of the designated title, Healing Touch Practitioner, HTP. The HTP is then eligible to apply for certification.

The Healing Touch Program is open to all individuals desiring an in-depth understanding of healing work using energy-based principals. Our classes have included nurses, physicians,
body therapists, counselors, psychotherapists, other healthcare professionals, clergy and spiritual leaders, hospice personnel and other individuals interested in helping others in their
community, loved ones and themselves. Nurses and massage therapists who take Healing Touch classes can earn Continuing Education contact hours.
