Kathy Vail | Healing TouchWelcome to Healing Touch

I'm so glad you're here! I hope you will learn a little more about Healing Touch from this site and know the power of living in the Light.

My call in doing energy work is to help people feel “whole” again. Healing is a process in the movement toward wholeness which encompasses our body, mind, emotion and spirit. Healing Touch works with our energy fields to support our natural ability to heal.

I am honored to do this work and love what I do. I have worked with people who have experienced loss, people recovering from an injury either acute or chronic, to people just needing to feel balanced and relaxed from life's daily stress. Wherever you are in life, I look forward to partnering with you as you journey on your path to wholeness. 




"Invoke Divine Light to shine within you and reach into your shadow areas. Allow the healing power of this Light to dissolve all that wounds your spirit, and so restore your health."


About Healing Touch

Healing touch works with your chakras and energy fields to support your natural ability to heal and return you to wholeness.  I use various techniques that restore harmony and balance the energy system.  

Some of the benefits include:

  • Decreasing pain
  • Enhancing recovery from surgery
  • Reducing stress
  • Calming anxiety and depression
  • Deepening of a spiritual connection

Healing Touch is used in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, spas, and private practices.  Janet Mentgen, RN, founded Healing Touch as a continuing education program for nurses and other health care professionals.  It is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association.  Today, Healing Touch has spread throughout the world and is taught in universities, medical schools and other settings internationally.

What to expect

Sessions are 60 minutes in length.  In the beginning of our session, we spend time discussing your reason for coming, some health history, and your goal from our time together.  This information helps me plan and be guided as to the techniques to use in our session.  I also do a pre-assessment of your chakras or energy fields which assists me in planning the work.

The pre-assessment and healing touch techniques are done lying comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table.  I assess your chakras to see whether the energy is flowing or if there are areas of constriction.  During the energy work, I use gentle touch or sometimes hover the hands slightly above the body. At the end of the treatment, we spend a few minutes sharing which helps to integrate, process and ground the work. The number of sessions will vary depending upon your goals.

"The feeling of freedom from pain and anxiety is extraordinary. Healing Touch helped me focus, relax and regain equilibrium."


"Kathy explains in detail what to expect, how to get the most out of the session and once a trusting working relationship is established, the results are relaxing and profound. I highly recommend Kathy for Healing Touch therapy."
