Tanya, what do you do?

I get asked frequently what is Total Body Essentials?

Through Healing Touch and doTERRA essential oils I work with people of all ages to balance physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. I create a space for relief of pain and healing outside of the doctor’s office.

Then they say, Healing Touch is massage, right?  Well no.

Healing touch is also known as therapeutic touch. It can be done hands off or hands on. We as practitioners have an understanding of the meridians and the chakras and opening blocked energies. It requires the gentle use of hands from practitioner to receiver. Healing Touch has more techniques available (than Reiki) for specific conditions, such as back and neck problems.

Healing Touch is a method of altering the body’s energy system to influence self-healing.

Healing Touch is a collection of standardized, noninvasive techniques that clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields. Healing Touch assists in creating a coherent and balanced energy field, supporting one’s inherent ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with, is complementary to, and may be integrated with standard medical care.

Healing Touch is beneficial in calming anxiety and reducing symptoms of depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, enhancing recovery from surgery, complementing care for neck and spine problems, deepening spiritual connection, supporting cancer care, creating a sense of well-being, easing acute and chronic conditions, and supporting resiliency in health care providers.

Healing Touch is used in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, private practices, hospices, and spas.  Healing Touch was founded in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses, massage therapists, other health care professionals, and lay persons.  Today, Healing Touch is taught in universities, medical and nursing schools, and other settings around the world.


The first session involves a short consultation in addition to the Healing Touch session.  I will ask a series of questions about your physical, mental, and emotional situation, and will answer questions about Healing Touch. Then you lay fully clothed on a massage table while the provider gently places his or her hands slightly above or on the body. The session generally lasts 40 to 60 minutes, and people frequently report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful during and after the session. Because there may be a cumulative effect of using Healing Touch over time, regular sessions are recommended.


Healing is placing my client in the best possible condition for nature to act upon him. The word “healing” comes from the root word “haelen”, which means to make whole. Healing is ALWAYS available and possible even into death.

All healing is self-healing and is an innate potential of every one of us.  Think about that for a minute. We actually have the innate potential for self-healing. My role as your Healing Touch practitioner is to support and positively influence this process.

Again, because there may be a cumulative effect of using Healing Touch over time, regular sessions are recommended.
