There is a Universal Life Force Energy that flows through all living organisms. This Energy links us all together and unites us into a Oneness. In the human body, this Life Energy flows freely into, through and out of the body, when it is in a state of health and wholeness.
It is this flow of Energy that nourishes all the organs and systems in the body. This flow of Energy creates an energy field around the body that can be objectively perceived and measured and even photographed Kirlian Photography.
When there is illness, pain, injury, disease, etc., this Life Force Energy becomes interrupted, obstructed, or even depleted in one or more areas of the body. This change in energy and flow can be easily felt by the practitioner.
The technique involves scanning the body by placing both hands together, side-by-side, palms down, facing the body.
Start at the top of the head, 3-5 inches above the body (in the energy field) and proceed to feel the energy from head to toe, both on the front as well as backside of the body.
You will actually feel various energy sensations like: tingling, heat, cold, heaviness, and a drawing feeling, to name a few. Depending on what you feel, that will give you the information on what type of imbalance is present..loose congestion, tight congestion, localized imbalance, or an energy deficit / void. This then gives you the data needed to proceed knowledgeably.
Therapeutic Touch works with the interaction between the energy fields auras of healer and patient.
Physical contact is not necessary because at the level of physical proximity and focused intent used, the energy fields of healer and patient are continuous.
This is an active healing process; the healer must have an active intent for healing to occur, and the patient must desire (even unconsciously) a return to health.
Therapeutic Touch can be practiced on babies, pets and plants as well as adults. Research indicates that it does produce statistically significant l evels of effective healing.
Patients generally report an increased sense of well-being and respite from pain after Therapeutic Touch sessions.
The key to practicing Therapeutic Touch is balancing the patient's energy. 治疗触摸实践的关键就是平衡病人的能量。
Pain or injury within the body or mind is reflected by changes in the energy field that surrounds and penetrates the physical body.
With the healer's own energy field properly shielded and stabilized through meditation and centering, the patient's energy field can be rebalanced, which will in turn allow the patient's own energy to effect the necessary healing.
After the available energy is redistributed, the healer will often channel universal background energy into the patient's aura as an extra reserve for the patient to use at will.
This safe, noninvasive practice satisfies most ethical concerns about free will and doing no harm.
Each healer and each patient will interact differently; a healer must rely on his or her own intuition to decide how best to respond to whatever form a patient's energy takes. Imagery directs the healing; untangling knots of energy, warming cool areas, smoothing throbbing or rough spots or allowing a stream of energizing color to flow through a patient's aura. 肖每个疗愈者和每位病人将会不同地互相影响；一位疗愈者必须依*他的或她自己的直觉去决定如何更好地响应无论怎样病人具有的能量形态。像指引疗愈；解开能量淤塞、冷热部位、一些抽动或粗糙部位或准许能量化颜色流通过病人的光环流动。
Some healers will talk during the session, explaining continuously what they are doing or feeling. Some play meditative music and burn candles or incense. Many combine Therapeutic Touch with similar therapies such as hypnosis, massage, or acupressure.
I have found that it works very well in a coven setting, where all participating coveners direct energy to the patient after the primary healer has unruffled the patient's energy field.
The only caveat is to be gentle; too much energy can make the patient jittery or headachy.
The main functions of Therapeutic Touch are relaxation and pain reduction, which allow the patient to take a more active part in their own healing.
The auric manipulation and healing techniques that gave rise to Therapeutic Touch were derived from teachings found in Theosophy.
Some study of chakras and Eastern energy systems will make the philosophy behind Therapeutic Touch more comprehensible, although it is not necessary to the practice.
Like Western magical practitioners, Therapeutic Touch operates out of the experience that, ultimately all things in the Universe are connected.
All exist as part of the Universal energy, which is why healers and patients alike can draw upon that Universal energy to supplement their own energy fields for healing.
A healer does not need to believe in this philosophy to be able to heal using Therapeutic Touch; He / she needs only the desire to help the patient. Nor does the patient need to believe; only to be willing to accept help
