History of Healing Touch

“Healing Touch Program was developed by Janet Mentgen, BSN, RN, HNC, HTCP/I, a holistic nurse from Denver, Colorado who practiced and taught energy-based care starting in the 1980s. She was actively involved in leadership with the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA). In 1988, Janet was honored as the Holistic Nurse of the Year by AHNA for her outstanding accomplishments in the field of holistic nursing.

In 1989, Healing Touch was offered as a pilot program at the University of Tennessee in Memphis and in Gainesville, Florida. In 1990, AHNA began supporting Janet’s privately owned program by offering continuing education contact hours.” Healing Touch Program Notebook Level 1, pg. 8.
