A new service is being provided at Dr. P. Phillips Hospital called Energy Medicine. This is a non-invasive, holistic healing approach that addresses the subtle energies within and around the body. Energy Medicine does not replace medical treatment, but complements your physician's plan of care. Energy Medicine can be used for:
- Chronic and acute pain
- Stress and tension
- Anxiety and agitation
- Restlessness and sleeplessness
- Respiratory distress
The form of Energy Medicine being offered is Healing Touch, an intervention developed out of the nursing profession and practiced by clinical disciplines. Healing Touch uses gentle, non-invasive techniques (e.g., sweeping hands just above the body or resting hands gently on the body) and promotes a healing environment through an intentional, caring connection.
The intent of Energy Medicine is to promote a sense of well-being, help manage discomfort and pain, and enhance your hospital experience. Though a physician order is required for Energy Medicine, it is free of charge to patients.
To learn more about Energy Medicine and Healing Touch, please contact Debbie Lewis, Spiritual Care Manager, at 407.351.8551.
