Workshop Facilitator: Rita Kluny
Doulas ? Midwives ? Nurses!
Healing Touch for Babies provides nurses, healthcare workers, parents and others who work with babies, a unique, in-depth experience of understanding their patients on a deeper level. HTB fills in the gaps of the principles of family centered care, by exploring the consciousness of newborns and their perceptions, and how you can support them to have the best start in life.
For those in the NICU, much can be done to minimize the trauma and drama that they endure, along with their parents and the pain of separation.
What makes this professional training unique?
It is so much broader than the physical dynamics of healthcare. There is healing potential of the emotional, mental or spiritual aspects for you, your patients and their families.
You will discover the intrinsic value of connectivity, first for yourself, to strength your own empowerment, then to more easily support parent empowerment.
This is the only energy medicine workshop that adapts to the needs of infants, and their pregnant or new parents.
This professional training will not only renew you as a person, it will also transform your nursing care.
What you will learn:
- To communicate with babies on a deeper level.
- How to transform stress into compassion.
- How to empower parents to meet the deeper needs of their babies.
- How to give healing treatments to babies and their parents with love and safety.
We teach cutting edge research that illustrates the principles of pre and perinatal psychology. You will learn the fundamentals of the human energy system and how to promote healing by using techniques approved by the Healing Touch Program.
