Bio Touch is an almost mystical, pain free, healing energy work. Bio-Touch™ is a simple, hands-on healing technique that can be used to address all types of health concerns. A practitioner uses the first two fingers of each hand to lightly touch specific points on the body. Over time, the combination of correct points and light touch seems to enhance the body’s natural healing ability.
Some Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practices involve manipulation of various energy fields to affect health. Such fields may be characterized as veritable (measurable) or putative (yet to be measured). Practices based on veritable forms of energy include those involving electromagnetic fields (e.g., magnet therapy and light therapy). Practices based on putative energy fields (also called bio-fields) generally reflect the concept that human beings are infused with subtle forms of energy. Bio-Touch, a healing touch technique, is an example of such a practice. No form of energy therapy is regarded as a replacement for conventional medicine, but we believe that Bio-Touch works extremely well when used in conjunction with traditional medicine.
Bio-Touch is a very light skin to skin therapy that enhances the body’s ability to connect with and help heal itself. Studies have shown that touch is beneficial to all mammals. Without it, many wither away and die. Bio-Touch is one person helping another by using the first two fingers of each hand to lightly touch specific points (usually acupuncture points) on the body. Our certified practitioner will listen to you and target the specific points that relate to your issue. Over time, the combination of correct points and light touch seems to enhance the body’s natural healing ability.
Bio-Touch is a combination of hold points and sweeps.
A hold point is a specific location on the body or head that a practitioner very lightly touches with two fingers of each hand. The specific spot and sequence of touch points performed will depend on what your issues seem to be. A sweep is a slow and deliberate movement of the first two fingers across a particular area of the body while the fingers maintain continuous contact with the recipient’s skin. Sweeps are enhancements to the series of movements that we perform. They are very gentle and most people find them extremely relaxing.
No! As we’ve said before, Bio-Touch is a skin to skin therapy. Meaning, the practitioner’s fingers need to have direct contact with the recipient’s skin, so the area that we are working on needs to be exposed or at least available. The recipient will just remove their shirt and not their bra for general treatments. You are in a temperate individual room, so no worries. If you aren’t comfortable with this, we can touch underneath your shirt. While doing the back set of points, your tailbone needs to be exposed. This will be the most exposed that you will be. If you are having work done on your lower extremities it is easiest to remove your long pants. If you are wearing shorts, we can usually get to your legs and feet with no problem.
A session usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Just like many other alternative modalities, that varies from person to person. Your body will heal at it’s own pace. Many people like to come a few times a week while they are starting their healing process, others may come one a month or so. It’s really up to you.
Not a chance!
Bio Touch will not interfere in any way with any medications you may be taking. It should be a compliment to whatever treatments you may be receiving.
Yes! Your practitioner will have gone through a series of hands on classes and will have performed a minimum of 60 hours of internship with other certified practitioners.
That is a question to which there isn’t a very specific answer. Hieroglyphs suggest that it has been being performed in Egypt for centuries. The safest answer that we can give is that the current form of world wide Bio-Touch therapy was established about 27 years ago.
