A student may take HT courses from any instructor who teaches for Healing Touch Program because all Healing Touch Program instructors are certified to teach the standardized curriculum. Colorado area students are blessed with an abundance of HTP instructors in the Denver region, making it easy to stay on a track of sequential courses leading toward graduation. Cynthia’s courses are listed below. However, students may find hundreds of HTP courses offered from over one hundred certified instructors worldwide.

Be aware of Healing Touch Program Imitators!

Students should be aware that if they are interested in learning from the original standardized program which is the first and only nationally accredited Energy Medicine Program, they should only take courses through HTP. Another organization using the term “Healing Touch” offers classes, but it is not a standardized or nationally accredited program.

The term “healing touch” cannot be trademarked due to the generic nature of the phrase, therefore, many touch-related health care practices in massage, chiropractics and energy medicine also use this term. Because of this, students should be aware of distinguishing Janet Mentgen’s original and professionally recognized program of studies from others using a similar term.
