The first time I received Healing Touch was as Janice's client. I knew something very powerful was going on during her treatment as I could actually feel things changing at a deep, cellular level within my body. It was unlike any experience I had ever had before and it left me refreshed and recharged.

Healing Touch and Energy Medicine

Janice has a personal interest in Healing Touch and Energy Medicine, both which are a co-creative mutual process between the client and practitioner. These processes support the clientís cultural/spiritual background and personal goals.

They are not substitutes for traditional health care, medical diagnosis or medical treatment for illness. Neither modality recommends nor requires a specific religious orientation or organized religious system.

Janice believes that the principles behind these modalities hold true in all instances, including the workplace.

Healing Touch

Healing Touch (HT) is a program in energy based therapies derived from the ancient art of hands-on-healing. The techniques taught in the program work with the energy of the body to assess and treat the bodyís energy system, affecting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system.

Healing Touch is founded on the premise that all people have the ability to facilitate healing through compassionate intent and the balancing of the human energy field. The HT Practitioner assists the client to self-heal.

Energy Medicine

Our lives have physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. Energy Medicine (EM) recognizes that an imbalance in any of these dimensions affects a personís overall health and well-being.

Thoughts, experiences and beliefs that may be causing an imbalance are pinpointed and then documented using a comprehensive Energy Medicine assessment and treatment process. While thinking about an issue, interventions are applied to balance and repair energy flow with the intent to heal and transform your life.


Both Healing Touch and Energy Medicine are intended to be integrated with traditional and complementary health care and may be effective in:

  • Promoting relaxation;
  • Promoting a renewed sense of well-being;
  • Strengthening the immune system;
  • Address illness and health issues;
  • Managing stress;
  • Speeding tissue and bone healing;
  • Reducing pain;
  • Care of acute and chronic disease.
