If you have found this website, you may be searching for a complementary therapy to supplement your traditional medical care. You also may be searching for physical comfort, emotional balance, stress relief, or spiritual healing or growth. My name is Leanne Bishop and I am a Healing Touch Practitioner. Healing Touch assists with the self-healing of mind, body, and spirit. Our bodies are meant to self-heal, but if our energy body is congested, we might not be able to heal as easily. I use Healing Touch, which promotes the relaxation response, our body’s counterpart to the fight-or-flight response, to bring a client’s energetic body to a place of balance and openness, where self-healing is more likely to occur.
As more and more people experience the benefits of Healing Touch, access to these healing techniques are becoming more readily available. I am pleased to now offer Healing Touch in partnership with the Bangor YMCA! I applaud the Y for including Healing Touch in their offerings to empower members (and non-members) in achieving health and wellness!
I invite you to browse this site and learn more about Healing Touch, such as what it is, what you will experience during a session, and possible reasons for seeking a Healing Touch session. You can also learn more about me, Leanne Bishop, M.Ed, Healing Touch Practitioner (HTP).
We are all on this journey of life, and whatever season you are in, I hope to partner with you on your path to health and wellness.
“As a healthcare provider, wife, and mom to three young children I often find myself frazzled, stressed and rushing. Healing Touch helps me feel calm, centered and focused. It is a time out in my busy schedule that helps make me a better person. The relaxation it offers makes me ready to tackle my everyday challenges with a smile.” – Amanda
“I am so happy I ran into Leanne this past spring at the Y. She is friendly, open, direct, and easy to talk to. She told me about her ongoing work with Healing Touch therapy, and I described to her my current debilitating problems caused by advanced arthritis in one of my hips. She encouraged me to come for a session to seek some relief.”
“I have indeed found relief and comfort through my sessions with Leanne. She understands the energy systems of the body, and how the warmth of direct touch and other forms of connection can be relaxing and therapeutic. I have relied on Healing Touch sessions with Leanne to heighten my awareness of my own level of energy, stress and pain, and always come away feeling renewed and with a sense of well-being.” – Bangor Y member, JH
“I have been a client of Leanne Bishop’s for a number of years. I find her very skilled, professional, and caring. I don’t fully understand about the energy fields and such. All I really know is that she makes me feel better. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.” – Bette
“Leanne has been an amazing asset to the well-being of our teaching community. As a chronic migraine sufferer, I was so astonished when Leanne helped alleviate my pain on several occasions with her Healing Touch therapy. She is always very willing to give her time to do what she can to help. She is very calming and soothing in her approach, and makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. The day that follows a session with Leanne, I wake feeling so much better and healthier.” – A.M.
“While going through several major changes in my personal and professional life, I was struggling with high stress, low energy, and acute physical symptoms of Fibromyalgia. I found that Leanne Bishop’s practice using Healing Touch is an effective and therapeutic modality that helps me to feel balanced in every sense; physically, emotionally, and spiritually.”
“Leanne applies specific healing techniques that have permanently eliminated pain in joints and soft tissue, as well as given me incredible relief from the sensation of stress.”
“She is a gentle friend who supports the process with her own loving spirit, and working with Leanne is truly a holistic experience…with each session I go away changed for the better.” – R.D.
“My Experience with Healing Touch”
“A Healing Touch session with Leanne Bishop is very relaxing but at the same time energizing. I find the most benefit for me is when I am able to have a once a week session, a few weeks in a row. I find I begin to feel lighter and more positive. I begin to feel more open and to let go of old thought patterns that I was not aware I had been holding on to.” – Robin Long
