Healing Touch Integrated Therapy
To assist patients in the healing process, the Spiritual Care Department offers a non-medicinal, non-invasive therapy called Healing Touch.
What is Healing Touch?
Healing Touch is an energy-based therapy in which the practitioner uses a light or near-body touch to restore harmony and balance to the patient's energy system. The goal of this therapy is to promote healing for the patient's mind, body and spirit.
How is Healing Touch used?
Healing Touch treatments can help with pain management, stress and anxiety.
What does it cost to have Healing Touch treatments?
There is no charge for inpatients to have Healing Touch treatments. If you are not a hospital patient, but would like to receive Healing Touch therapy, please call the Spiritual Care Department at 928-336-2003 for information on appointment times and fees.
How can I learn more about Healing Touch?

You may also ask to speak to one of the hospital's Healing Touch practitioners. Information about Healing Touch therapy is also available online at www.healingtouchprogram.com.
