International Code of Ethics

Healing Touch provides care and comfort to an individual through balancing the Energy System, thereby helping the client to self heal.

It is based on a heart-centered caring relationship in which the healer and client come together energetically to facilitate the client's health and healing. This is done through an analysis of the energetic system of the client.

The Healing Touch Practitioner operates from an International Code of Ethics within International Standards of Practice as outlined by Healing Touch International, Inc.

The person is not discriminated against because of race, sex, creed, religious beliefs, illness, social/cultural situation or sexual orientation. The client's humanness is to be respected at all times as the person is considered whole and holy.

He/she is part of a unit such as a family or support network system. This unit is to be considered in understanding the health/healing need of the person. The individual rights are upheld at all times and the person's coping method is to be respected. The amount and timing of the explanation given to the client is individualized according to the expressed need, context and personal situation. The client's wishes are to be considered, using the language that the person can understand while not talking above or below the person.

The client's choices regarding health care are to be honored. Interventions are based on energetic findings from a prior assessment of the Energy System followed by evaluation.

Findings are documented appropriately and in detail specific to the practitioner's background and obligations required from the setting of the Healing Touch practice.

At all times, the confidentiality of the person is to be respected and the data stored in such a way as to protect the anonymity of the person.

There will be no usage of the data beyond caring for the client, unless permission is obtained in writing from the client.

No energy is given beyond the capacity for the person to receive following the principle: do no harm.

Conditions where limited ability to make one's own judgments, such as those very sick, and those with impaired decision-making ability, are approached appropriately.

Clients are referred to appropriate health and related professionals as needed.

Practitioners practice within the scope of one's background and training that complements the Healing Touch Practice. He/she meets all obligations required by that background as appropriate.

The Healing Touch practitioner obtains supervision and consultation as needed.
