HAMC Nurse Kelly Clements practices a healing touch technique while Instructor Nan Cicha looks on.
Over the past several weeks, acute care nursing staff at Heart of America Medical Center have been attending lectures and practical experiences on creating a healing environment using Healing Touch Therapeutic Techniques. Healing Touch incorporates concepts of the human energy system, promoting a balance of energy that leads to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.
Beyond simply using a chemical or technological intervention, the staff on HAMC's acute care will be helping their patients and each other by providing a caring presence, a sense of hope and purpose, and ultimately, comfort and relaxation. The Intro to Healing Touch sessions have been provided by Nan Cicha, Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP) from the Center of Healing and Wholeness, Grand Forks, ND.
Thank you for the wonderful care I received at Heart of America Medical Center and Johnson Clinic. Even though my stay was brief, their care for me was the best. Charlotte Brandt, Rugby
