A Heart to Heart about your Heart

iStock HeartHealing Touch can help improve the chance of a successful surgery and reduce the recovery time for persons facing the prospect of coronary artery bypass surgery. 

Coronary artery bypass is among the most common surgeries performed in the world – with over 600,000 performed each year in the U.S. alone, it almost seems routine.  Routine or not, there can be life-threatening complications, high levels of pain, increased levels of stress and anxiety.  Not to mention the often dramatic changes in an individual’s lifestyle and social activities following surgery.

But what if you could receive a non-invasive treatment that could reduce your pain, stress and anxiety and significantly improve your recovery time?  Healing Touch is that treatment.

A study of 237 coronary bypass patients showed patients undergoing complementary Healing Touch therapies in conjunction with conventional care experience less pain, less anxiety, fewer complications than those without Healing Touch therapy.  And best of all, patients receiving Healing Touch therapy have an overall shorter recovery time and corresponding shorter hospital stay.  

Healing touch is an energy-based therapy that arose out of nursing in the early 1980s.  It complements conventional healthcare and is used in many hospitals across the U.S. in collaboration with other conventional approaches to health and healing.
