Welcome to the Haelen Center for Healing Touch Program™.
Healing Touch is a nurturing, compassionate energy therapy. Providers consciously work in a heart-centered and intentional way with a gentle, light or above body touch to enhance, support, and facilitate physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and support the individual’s natural, self-healing ability.
The Haelen Center is also the site for classes in the Healing Touch Program™ and is part of the Healing Touch Network of the East Bay/San Francisco: bringing the Healing Touch to your neighborhood.
The Haelen* Center is presented by the Care Ministry of Hillcrest Congregational Church, UCC, 404 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523. No fee is charged. Donations are welcomed.

Background of Healing Touch Program ™
The Healing Touch ™ Program consists of a group of volunteers dedicated to helping our community by providing an energy modality called Healing Touch (HT).
We have been trained by THE HEALING PROGRAM™, WORLDWIDE LEADERS IN ENERGY MEDICINE, Creating Healing Relationships; and adhere to its Code of Ethics, and Scope of Practice.
Healing Touch™ was founded by Janet Mentgen, BSN, RN in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses and other health care professionals. It is now used as a complementary or integrative modality in hospitals, hospices, and is used by health care professionals and trained non-medical people in a variety of settings.
