Healing Sanctuary

Yoga Sanctuary has a Healing Sanctuary nestled in the back room. Tracy Vacura offers Healing Touch and Chantelle Ebben offers Healing Touch and Ayurveda Counseling.

From Tracy:

Currently, I am a Healing Touch International Practitioner Apprentice, which means that I have passed 4 levels of training and am now in the final year of study before certification.  My intention is to practice Healing Touch at Yoga Sanctuary and in my home for clients, and once I am further along on the road to being a fully certified practitioner, I plan to charge $50 for a 60 minute session. In the meantime, I am very excited to share the transformative power of Healing Touch with everyone by donation.  If you are uncertain about energy healing but willing to share an hour of your time with me, that is a big donation on your part.  If you would like to make a donation in exchange for service, I welcome donations of any amount.  I will use any donations to help Shelley continue her work of building a beautiful space at the Yoga Sanctuary for healing and to help pay my training and certification expenses.

Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that uses gentle touch to assist in balancing all layers of the self—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.   Sessions begin with discussion about the health of the whole self to best determine which energy management techniques will assist in healing or growth. Healing Touch providers gently place their hands slightly above or on the fully-clothed client to help balance the energy field and chakras.  This work supports and strengthens the client's natural ability to heal.  People frequently report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful during and after a session—and the comfortable massage table, ambient music and aromatherapy all help in reaching this blissful state of being.  Benefits of Healing Touch can include relief from chronic pain, reduction of stress, decreased levels of anxiety, improved immune function, enhanced recovery from surgery, emotional release, reduction of scars, reduction of headaches, support during chronic illness and increased over-all well-being. Healing Touch is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard or allopathic medical care.  Because there may be a cumulative effect of using Healing Touch over time, regular sessions are recommended.

The Healing Touch Curriculum was brought to life in 1989 when an RN named Janet Mengen combined her extensive energy therapy work with other leaders in the field of energy-based healing, such as Alice Bailey, Rosalyn Bruyere, Brugh Joy and Barbara Brennan.  Healing Touch is frequently practiced in hospitals, nursing homes, hospice care, massage clinics and anywhere there is pain.  Healing Touch has been endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association since 1997.
