I found Healing Touch in 1992, when I was a mother of a three year old and working in private practice. I took Healing Touch Level 1 with Janet Mentgen, in the Baltimore area, and felt as if I had come home. I knew Healing Touch was what I wanted to do for people, even teach myself when the time came.
The time came in 1994 when I had taken all the classes and graduated as a Healing Touch Practitioner. I went right on to instructor training and today have been instructing all level of this program in the United States and Germany. I found it so complementary to my holistic psychotherapy practice as a psychiatric-mental health clinical nurse specialist. I was able to reduce anxiety with it, as well as mania and depression. Today I maintain certification as psychiatric-mental health clinical nurse specialist and Healing Touch Certified Instructor, which are both credentialed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Its hard to say which is more delightful, practicing my integrative holistic psychotherapy or teaching Healing Touch. Join me and embrace the joy and mystery! I am currently teaching Healing Touch at Childrens National Medical Center. www.healingtouchdc.co
