Client feedback

It is not uncomon for clients to provide positive feedback to Healing Touch Practitioners about a particular session or an improvement in health and well-being over a period of time.

Here are some recent client comments:

"Catherine has given me 4 treatments over the last couple of years, prior to conceiving my son and during pregnancy. I found myself very at ease with Catherine and thrilled with my results. I felt calmer and lighter after each treatment, I highly recommend her!"

Lucy L, Port Macquarie NSW

"I leave a Healing Touch session in Susi's zen den feeling more grounded, relaxed and calmer than before I climbed onto the table. Susi's an intuitive, caring and kind soul whose energy work and gentle hands-on practice is a restorative balm for the body, mind and spirit.

Sarah H, Sydney NSW

I have just had my first pain free night in such a long time - not sure why the inner right knee has been so sore -- only at night? and not in the day but last night was a great night and I slept well. Woke peacefully! You are magic my dear - really felt something shift yesterday arvo."

Practitioner Stories

My Path to Healing; Catherine Clarke

For 3 years I studied counselling amidst full-time work, births, deaths and marriages. My plan was to step out from corporate and into the support sector, while my husband continued to work as a teacher. However, this was not to be. He was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and then 6 months later, cancer, leaving him unable to work and very sick.

On his path to gain his health back we connected with a beautiful and wise Naturopath. She kept telling me of this Healing Touch, which she suggested I investigate and do a course in. I had learnt Reiki and had dabbled in Reconnective Healing, and wasn’t interested in learning another modality.

After some time, I felt a softening towards this Healing Touch and decided to do the Unit One course. I was hooked. That was in 2015, the most difficult time for my husband. Healing Touch was the only thing that could improve the way he felt; it would pick him up. After each treatment his response was relief from the headaches, brain fog, fatigue, aches or whatever symptoms he was experiencing. In that year he received a treatment from me almost every day.

The other great benefit of Healing Touch for me was being part of a loving, healing and helpful community. My husband also completed the Unit One class. He eventually started to give himself treatments every day.

Today he is well enough to do most things.

In 2018 I achieved Certified Healing Touch Practitioner status and received my certificate from Healing Beyond Borders.

I am so happy and proud to have found this modality and this community. I love being able to make a difference in the lives of my clients through my very own Healing Touch Practice … Harmony Healing Touch.
