Healing Touch Program
Barb Welcer RN, BAS, HNC, CHTP/I
As an instructor of the Healing Touch Program since 2002 I bring a unique balance, offering an understanding of energy medicine both as a medically trained nurse and as a holistic nurse practitioner.
The Healing Touch Program curriculum provides a structure for practical hands on techniques, ethics, scope of practice and understanding how to use energy medicine in the Allopathic world as an adjunct to traditional medical care.
My classes are interactive, fun and create a relaxing healing environment with attention to our own self care, while learning ways to create a healing environment for yourself and others. Techniques can be used on ourselves or others to facilitate a sense of well-being and health.
