Healing Touch Integrative Care Program: Integrating Healing Touch in the Clinical Setting
is a comprehensive manual that provides the structure and necessary tools needed to implement Healing Touch in a clinical setting. It was developed in collaboration between Lourdes Lorenz, RN, MSN, NEA-BC, AHNA-BC, HTP-A, and Healing Touch Program (HTP).

As Director of Integrative Health at Mission Hospital in Asheville, NC, Ms. Lorenz developed, implemented and coordinates a very successful and sustainable integrative healthcare program that includes Healing Touch and several other modalities. As a long standing endorsed and accredited leader in nursing continuing education, HTP provides the standardized curriculum and professional support that makes Healing Touch an evidence-based modality that is used in healthcare facilities throughout the U.S. The many credentialed Healing Touch Program practitioners and instructors are recognized professionals in healthcare today.

This manual offers a step-by-step process that begins with investigation and culminates in creating a sustainable integrative care program that supports providing Healing Touch to patients throughout the healthcare facility. The outlined process is flexible and can easily be adapted for use in facilities that range from small clinic settings through large hospitals of more than 400 beds.
