Living Pain Free the Healing Touch Way

iStock Hand HeartThere are many Healing Touch techniques that are specific for dealing with and reducing or eliminating both acute and chronic pain.  Healing Touch can be a supplemental approach to conventional medicine or even an effective tool when other approaches are not successful.

Pain takes many forms; it can be extreme, like that from a severe injury or medical procedure; pain can be a warning to your brain that you have extended your body’s limits; or

it can be a reminder that you need to take care of some aspect of your life that is creating a “pain in your neck”.

All pain is relative to the person experiencing it.  Even when the same painful procedure is done, different people often experience the pain in very different ways.  The experience is dependent on a number of factors and includes such things as previous experience with pain and individual body chemistry and structure.  There is even a difference in pain perception between sexes.  Using energy therapies like Healing Touch can influence a person’s response to pain in the many ways in which it is interpreted by the body.  These include the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of being.

Numerous Healing Touch studies have been conducted that show its ability to decrease both acute and chronic pain.  In fact, some of the most compelling responses to Healing Touch work are found with pain relief in hospital settings. In research studies, effects are often compared to other treatments. For example, in a study comparing non-invasive Healing Touch treatments to chiropractic care for back pain Healing Touch was found to be just as effective.  In another study of chronic and severe pain resulting from a spinal cord injury, patients who received Healing Touch treatments reported decreased pain more than  those patients who received progressive muscle relaxation.  Healing Touch has also been found to reduce and relieve headache pain.

There are many techniques within Healing Touch that are specific for dealing with pain which can be very effective.  Often the sooner these techniques are used the more effective they can be.  There are no contraindications for using Healing Touch to relieve pain and it can be valuable in supplementing conventional approaches or using when other approaches are not successful.
