My name is Miriam Lieberman and I am a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner. Healing Touch (HT) is a gentle, complementary energy-based approach to health that can assist in bringing one’s body into its natural ability to heal. I do not diagnose or treat disease as I am not a physician. I encourage my clients to seek diagnosis and treatment from a qualified health practitioner for illnesses, injuries, or medical conditions outside of my scope of practice. HT services are not licensed by the state of North Carolina; rather they are guided by the Healing Touch Code of Ethics and Standards of Care (see Healing Touch Association).
Healing Touch (HT) is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands to promote movement and change in the energy field. It is an intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing. HT is a holistic, complementary and integrative energy based therapy that is accomplished through the practitioner’s use of contact and /or non-contact and a heart-centered state of being. The healing traditions of many cultures emphasize the importance of subtle energy systems that flow through and around the human body, reinforcing its health and vitality. Many of these traditions stress that balancing these fields can assist the body, mind and spirit in attaining and maintaining wellness.
The first session is about 2 hours including a thorough intake. Subsequent sessions vary between 60-90 minutes, typically about 75 minutes. After a brief update and goal setting, I will gently place my hands on or above your fully clothed body (except shoes) noting any sensations or imbalances to assess the energy field. I then choose a HT technique that is appropriate to your needs. This may include light physical touch or sweeping hand motions above the body. There is a high likelihood that you will experience the relaxation response during the session. We end with a feedback discussion. People have many different responses to HT. Some clients feel nothing at all. Others describe sensations of moving energy, deep relaxation, feelings of being supported and nurtured, or visions of images and colors. Some people experience an emotional release such as tears or laughter; some have what they consider to be spiritual experiences; while others may develop insight into specific areas of their lives.
Some of the indications for a Healing Touch session include, but are not limited to:
• Facilitate the relaxation response
• Reduction in pain, inflammation, anxiety and stress
• Decreased nausea
• Preparation for medical treatment and procedures and to manage side-effects
• Support during chemotherapy
• Support the body’s natural healing process and well being
• Facilitation of wound healing
• Support of emotional, mental, and spiritual healing
Fees for Healing Touch Sessions
The Initial Two Hour Session includes a thorough intake and mapping of energy patterns you are holding and/or expressing, to assess your long term needs and goals; as well as, the more immediate needs to be addressed in this first treatment. Subsequent sessions typically last 60 to 75 minutes (with a few protocols lasting 90) depending on your needs, preference, and the methods employed, which we can decide together. Each session includes a brief update on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual changes since the previous treatment, mutual goal setting and a pre-treatment reading of your energy system to map shifts between visits and identify your current treatment needs. At the end of treatment we do a post-treatment reading and share feedback including ideas for ways to continue the healing at home.
I offer a sliding scale to make it as affordable as I can since this work is not yet available through insurance panels. It is my hope that it will be someday. Feel free to discuss your financial situation with me as I do not want money to be the only reason you are not seeking the healing you need. I love working in person but also offer distance healing (proven to be as effective) if meeting in person is not possible due to illness, physical ability or spatial distance.
Initial Session 2 hours is on a sliding scale from $275.00 to $250.00
Individual Session 75-90 minutes sliding scale from $165.00 to $140.00
Individual Session 60 minutes sliding scale from $125.00 to $100.00
4 Session Package 75-90 mins (saves $75.00) $585.00 to $485.00
8 Session Package 75-90 mins (saves $100.00) $1220 to $1020
It is my goal to make this work as accessible to everyone as I can. Please speak with me if your financial situation prevents you from seeking treatment. I will do what I can to make it feasible.
Much healing and joy to you,
