About Cynthia Hutchison

Cynthia Hutchison, Boulder Healing TouchCynthia Hutchison, DNSc, MSN, RN, HTCP/I, is a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner, an internationally known Healing Touch instructor and nurse psychotherapist, and was retired in December 2018 from fifteen years as  the Educational Program Director (2003-2018) for Healing Touch Program™ (HTP).

Cynthia began studying holistic healing, natural healing and energy therapies in the early 1980s. She is an avid student of spirituality and energy therapy, and, as a doctorally-prepared nurse from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. (1987), is also knowledgeable in mainstream health sciences and integrating mainstream care with holistic approaches.

Cynthia earned a master’s degree as a clinical specialist in mental health nursing (1979), and has maintained a private practice in Healing Touch since 1992. In 1995, Cynthia initiated the research program for Healing Touch and became the first Director of Research, a position she maintained until 2000. She was invited by Janet Mentgen (founder of HT) in 2003 to serve as the Assistant Program Director. Cynthia became the Program Director in May of 2005, several months before Janet’s death, and was asked by Janet to carry on her legacy of the Healing Touch Program. Teaching all levels of HTP curriculum, she brings enthusiasm, empowerment and creativity to her classes. A mother of three awesome adult daughters, Cynthia has lived in Boulder, Colorado since 1993.

In 2011, Cynthia developed a workshop on body prayer and has taught it at a dozen conferences and/or groups, as both a keynote speaker and workshop presenter. Her body prayer DVD has been instrumental in teaching body prayer without physical attendance at a workshop. Her work is based on Rudolf Steiner’s EURYTHMY and has been part of her spiritual practice for many years. She usually teaches from a universal spiritual perspective but can also present it from a Christian based teaching.

Her love of sacred geometry manifested into a two day hands on healing course where attendees learn the theory and spiritual teachings of sacred geometry and how to apply these forms within the client’s energy field for body-mind-spirit health and healing. For more information about this course, see Cynthia’s class listings. She also works with clients applying a sacred geometry sequence that can also be taught to the client for self care, adapted to the client’s faith/belief.

Cynthia continues to teach all levels of HTP coursework (Level 1 – 5, Instructor Training and Advanced Practice courses)  locally, nationally and internationally. Cynthia treasures her time as an HT Practitioner administering to local and long-distance clients, where she works with clients of all ages and health conditions. Many clients gravitate to her who are working on spiritual issues. She combines her years of experience as an energy medicine practitioner with her knowledge of psychology, spirituality, treatment of trauma, holistic nursing and wellness practices.
