A noninvasive method of healing that was derived from an ancient laying on of hands technique. Empathetic Touch works with the energy field and the aura. The practitioner helps remove the blockages and re-balances the energy, helping the person come back into harmony and restored health.
Everyone’s life is full of experiences. Many of them create wonderful memories that bring a smile to our faces when we remember them. Some of our memories are dark and painful and make us cringe when they come to mind. And other memories are forgotten by our everyday minds only coming out when something hits that sensitive place in us there the memories are stored. Our memories are stored not just in our minds, but in our bodies. Some experts say that each cell in our body stores memories, each in its own way. When the impact of a life experience becomes buried within us, it may fester just like an untreated infection and may lead to illness in the body, mind or spirit.
Empathetic Touch was designed to go within and help with the “Discovery Process.” In the discovery process the individual person can start to regain a sense of himself or herself, in turn bringing about a better “Quality of Life.” This is done in creating a safe environment that brings trained practitioners together either in a group environment or one on one session. Empathetic Touch practitioners work with the body, the mind, and the human spirit. This goal of “Discovery” is working with what has happened to a person, not what is wrong with a person.
The Past Traumatic Stories are stored in the human being, in their bodies, minds and spirits. These events create blocks inside of us, which interrupt the normal flow and balance that is needed to have Quality of Life. When the negative imprints are allowed to stay within the body it can lead to illness. The process of Empathetic Touch allows blocks to be removed and strives to return the natural flow and rhythm back into the individual’s system so they can have a reconnection within themselves and in turn have a better relationship not only with themselves but their families, friends etc.
Empathetic Touch is focused on you, the individual. It is based on the expression of Empathetic concern for another person. Empathetic concern is an approach to another human being in which the practitioner focuses on the perceived needs of the other person and develops a feeling of compassion and caring on behalf of the well-being of another person. Empathetic concern requires having a positive and compassionate ongoing concern for the individual, creating a safe environment, listening with compassion and giving tools and education so the individual can move forward in his/her life on an ongoing basis. This approach allows the fragmented human spirit and soul come back together and be reintegrated promoting wholeness in the body, mind and spirit.
Empathetic Touch is a powerful and effective healing tool, which compliments whatever medical approaches are appropriate for the individual. It does not intend to replace regular medical care, which continues to be important.
Another way of thinking about Empathetic Touch is that it offers nutrition for the body, mind and spirit. It feeds those places within us that have been starved, in particular our emotions and spirits. The practitioners become an advocate for the individuals healing process, which creates a sense of Great Hope.
Empathetic Touch brings back wholeness to the physical body, mental body, emotional body and spiritual body.
