Healing Touch Western Australia
Healing Touch Western Australia is a non-profit organization based in Perth. We promote Healing Touch in our local community and volunteer at Solaris Care Centre at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and at Homeless Connect in Northbridge annually. We offer courses regularly. Originally Healing Touch was created as an ongoing program for nurses, massage therapists, and other health care professionals, now it is open to any individuals who desire to learn this energy based therapy.

Healing Touch is an energy-based therapeutic approach to health and wellbeing. Healing Touch uses gentle touch to assist in balancing the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body and the energy centers.
Healing Touch stems from the work of North American nurse Janet Mengen, who began practicing energy-based care in the 1980s. It was first taught in Australia in 1993. The program continues to grow throughout Australia and around the world and is also taught in New Zealand, Canada, Europe, South Africa, and Central and South America.
Healing Touch Practitioners provide treatments in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, private practices, homes, workplaces and hospices. Healing Touch can also be done on pets.
Healing Touch can be used to promote relaxation, reduction of pain, decrease anxiety, tension and stress, relieve migraine and headaches, assisting with grief and depression, aid in preparation for and follow up after medical procedures and can facilitate wound healing. It can be used to support any transitions including the dying process. It can also be used to relieve neck and back pain.
We are affiliated with the Australian Foundation for Healing Touch and Healing Beyond Borders.
