How effective is Healing Touch?
Because of the effective results seen over recent years, Healing Touch is now part of patient care systems in more than 25 hospitals in the United States. Healing Touch skills are becoming increasingly validated in health care systems around the country. Hospitals that support the practice of Healing Touch as part of their integrative health care system have found that it facilitates the return of compassion to the forefront of patient care.

Hospitals, nursing and medical schools, and allied health professions throughout the world are increasingly embracing Integrative Medicine as consumer demand multiplies and as research supports its use. Healing Touch has had an active research program for over 10 years and more than 50 Healing Touch studies have been completed at universities, medical centers and in other settings.
