Healing Touch


Healing Touch is a relaxing, energy therapy.


Our human energy system can become unbalanced and congested during times of stress, injury or illness. Healing Touch relaxes, restores and rejuvenates the body at these times. It is complementary to all types of standard medical care.


Hospice Yukon’s Healing Touch services are available to:


People who are dying and their caregivers

People who are grieving

Health care professionals

Healing Touch has been known to:


Reduce pain

Reduce anxiety

Relieve stress and depression

Provide support during chemotherapy

Strengthen the immune system

Create a sense of well-being

Enhance recovery from surgery

Deepen spiritual connection

Support the dying process

Trained staff and volunteers use gentle touch to clear and balance the human energy system. A session can be given anywhere, from a chair in a client’s home to a bed in a hospital room. Typically a client lies on a massage table or bed, fully clothed. The session may last anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, based on the client’s needs and the type of treatment being offered.


Healing Touch was founded by Janet Mentgen, RN in 1989. It is now an international program that is accepted, validated and utilized in hospitals, hospices, long term care, integrative health centers, private practices and clinics around the world.
