A Legacy of Healing: The Healing Touch Modality Offers Energy Healing Endorsed by Holistic Nurses

The Healing Touch Center in Farmington Hills has been offering healing sessions to the general public for two decades, providing those who enter its serene healing environment the opportunity to balance their body, mind, and spirit.
