What is

Biofield Therapy?

"Healing Touch is a biofield therapy that is an energy-based approach to health and healing."

At Heart and Hands Healing, Lynn works with the layers past the skin.  That said we know the body has distinct systems that interpenetrate, influence, and work together. 


Remember grade school science and the chapter on anatomy?   It started with a picture of a skeleton.  Think of turning that translucent sheet showing muscles and we get an idea of how the muscular-skeletal system is connected.  Additional overlays included the digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular systems and so on.  But we understood that discussing layers was a way to begin understanding the rich complexity and the harmony of the human body.  


“Healing Touch is a biofield therapy that is an energy-based approach to health and healing.  It uses touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the energy flow from the energy field to the physical body.  These non-invasive techniques utilize the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields thus affecting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and healing.  It is based on a heart-centered caring relationship in which the practitioner and the client come together energetically to facilitate the client’s health and healing.”

(Janet Mentgen, 1993)


The energy-based modalities used by Lynn compliment conventional medicine, not replace it.  You are strongly encouraged to see your health care provider for any medical concerns you may have.
