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.
