Classes & Instructors

Healing Touch is a collection of standardized, noninvasive techniques that clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields.

Classified by the National Institutes of Health as a biofield therapy and nursing intervention, Healing Touch may be used to address the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA-1) diagnosis of "Imbalanced Energy Field."


Healing Beyond Borders recognizes the importance of evidence-based practice and champions the study and research of Healing Touch. The integration of HT with standard medical care is encouraged.

This exceptional, five-course certificate program moves from introductory to advanced practice, preparing the participant for a critical role in the unfolding field of complementary and integrative health care. The focus is not only on professional caring and service to others, but also on transformational self-development and self- care.
