Healing Touch is practiced, governed and promoted using the highest professional standards.

The Healing Touch Program Code of Ethics and the Scope of Practice are two documents that are essential to the foundation, integrity and practice of Healing Touch. Healing Touch Program instructors, practitioners and students uphold the core concepts and values of Healing Touch through adhering to the principles and guidelines outlined in these documents. 

The Ethics Committee is the guardian of the Code of Ethics and Statement of Scope of Practice.  The fundamental values of the Ethics Committee are quality, integrity, compassion, collaboration and commitment.

The Healing Touch Program Code of Ethics expresses clear guidelines for the teaching and practice of Healing Touch. In so doing, the Code exemplifies the ethical standards that are necessary to underpin Healing Touch practice and promote professional ideals, aspirations and a sense of safety and trusteeship for society. 

The Healing Touch Program Scope of Practice defines the levels of Healing Touch practice, and outlines how Healing Touch providers may refer to themselves, how they can practice and what they must be mindful of when practicing.

Let us help you introduce Healing Touch in your facility. Our one-hour interactive presentation, Healing Touch: Expand Your Healing Potential, explains Healing Touch and the benefits it provides to your patients, staff and the facility at large. Thirty minutes is dedicated to experiential time where attendees pair and practice exchanging Healing Touch and share experiences. Nurses can earn one continuing education hour through the American Nurses Credential Center (ANCC).

This is an excellent way to increase awareness of Healing Touch and to promote its use in your facility.
