  • healing touch clinic

    The Healing Touch Clinic has been suspended until January 2018 due to an abundance of church activities in December. We will resume on Sunday, January 13th.


    This clinic is available for anyone interested in experiencing a relaxing, 30-minute session to restore your balance and energy. There will be several experienced Healing Touch Practitioners and possibly some students of Healing Touch from the CMC College of Health Sciences available for these sessions.  While there is no charge for the clinic, donations are accepted for the use of the building. Most of the evaluations of previous clinics have rated the experience as a valuable one and most enjoyable.  The clinic is held the second Sunday of each month and is open to the public.  You can read more about Healing Touch at www.healingtouchprogram.com
