After studying Spring Forest Qigong for three years, Alanna felt called to begin studying Healing Touch and as of September 2013, became a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner. Alanna uses Healing Touch “from beginning to end” – supporting pregnant moms and babies, to young children, adults, seniors and hospice clients for their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs. Alanna has also completed coursework with The Institute of Spiritual Healing & Aromatherapy (ISHA) and is a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist. She finds the use of essential oils helps take clients to deeper levels in achieving the healing process.
Her vision was informed by Master Chunyi Lin, who believes in “a healer in every family and a world without pain.” Janet Mentgen, founder of the Healing Touch Program had a similar philosophy, hoping to make “Healing Touch” a household world by inspiring and empowering humanity to achieve holistic health, healing and well-being. Alanna has been using many of these techniques over the past two decades, and believes that self-healing is available to those who are willing to do the work.
