Benefits of Touch

Energy Medicine has the ability to change anything in your life you would like to change. Energy healing utilizes specific healing techniques that help promote healing and balance in the body. One of the most important techniques in the healing process is touch. Touch is one of our most powerful senses and one of first senses to develop when we are born. There are many benefits of touch and an energy healing practitioner certainly utilizes touch in their practice working with people.

It is often a sense that does not get a lot of attention; we see, we hear, we talk, we taste and we touch.

Healing touch


We instinctively already apply therapeutic touch to ourselves unconsciously; such as when you have a headache, you will rub that part of your head in an attempt to make it go away. If a child has a stomach ache, he will rub his tummy and the mother will try and rub it to make it feel better. A friend is feeling sad, and we instinctively place a reassuring hand on their back or offer a hug.  A simple hand shake makes that physical energetic connection with another person. There are so many ways the simple act of touch is done on a daily basis and it sends a powerful message.


Intentional touch techniques have the ability to provide a way to help ourselves and to help others. Touch has the ability to engage, connect and amplify life-force energy through various energy awareness techniques. Energy healing practitioners learn how to direct life-force energy resulting in facilitating the body’s own healing process.

In the past, for thousands of years “laying of the hands” was used to heal the sick and relieve pain. Hippocrates- the father of medicine wrote:  “The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing”; a common massage technique. In the bible Jesus was known to place his hands on people and heal them of illnesses.

Increasingly, research is proving the extraordinary effectiveness of the benefits of touch. By taking care of ourselves, we reduce stress and bring balance back into our lives. Touch is a universal language, one that we use to heal, reassure, to relieve pain or to soothe away tension. A healing practitioner can balance energy flows, releasing stuck energy and promoting healing of the body and mind. This can result in:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Improved sleep 
  • More energy
  • Improved circulation
  • Decrease pain in the body
  • and many more.  

Like a breath of fresh air; touch can shift and change the energy of any situation.

Therefore, it is of vital importance to receive some type of therapeutic touch in your life; whether it be via a massage, aroma touch, Access Consciousness Bars™, or various energy medicine healing techniques.


By incorporating Energy medicine into your lifestyle you can provide deeper healing and balance into your body, mind and spirit.
