Healing Touch – Sr. Patricia Hottinger has learned and practiced the art of Healing Touch since 2007. Healing touch is working with the energy that every human being has in their body. With this work Sr. Pat is able to establish positive “energy habits” in other bodies which strengthen their immune systems and help them navigate through the stresses of modern life. Sr. Pat was certified in St. Louis and has been able to continue learning through podcasts, reading other healers stories, and studying with various teachers. Sr. Pat says that many people are uncomfortable with this practice because they think of it as “voodoo” or something abnormal. But she believes if we are all conscious of our energy and how it works, so many of us can be healed spiritually when we feel “off”. She says, “It is amazing the way that energy works, I can do it from far away or close by. But many feel surprised at the feeling one has after a session”. Sr. Pat loves to see how her clients react after their treatment. They often feel more centered, energetic, and ready to take on the stresses of daily life. She has done a lot of work at The Circle Resource Center, one of the projects the Society of Helpers sponsor. Sr. Pat says that many of the women from the Circle are Hispanic and live in their spirituality very heavily day to day. Through their culture, they have a better understanding that healing can be done in many different ways, such as physically, spiritually, and energetically. This understanding allows the women to be more open to the practice of Healing Touch. Sr. Pat would like to help more people become aware of Healing Touch and the benefits it can offer. Any kind of energy work is so helpful for one’s mind, body, and spirit. It helps heal the whole person, not just one part of them.

Even during the pandemic, Sr. Pat has been able to administer Healing Touch remotely. If you want to read more about this kind of work, feel free to check out this website that shares a deeper look at Healing Touch: www.HealingBeyondBorders.org
