Healing Touch


“It’s like a lot of things in life. You need to be open to the mystery. One of my clients, every time we’re done, he says, ‘I don’t understand it, but I love it.’” 
                                                  - Micara Link, Knute Nelson Healing Touch Practitioner 

What is healing touch? 

Healing touch practitioners lay their hands on or near patients to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. It’s based on the idea that energy flows through each of us. When that energy is high, it’s easier to be happier and healthier.  

How does healing touch help?  

Healing touch can: 

  • Reduce stress and anxiety 
  • Alleviate pain 
  • Raise energy 
  • Increase appetite 
  • Improve digestion 
  • Promote healing 

Because healing touch isn’t a drug and is non-invasive, it doesn’t interact with medications or cause side effects.  

Where can I receive healing touch? 

Healing touch is offered through Knute Nelson hospice.
