Welcome to Hands of Service…

Certified Healing Touch Practitioner

Scott Gerold, CHTP

A quick note from Scott…

I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to offer Healing Touch to you. It has made a big difference in my life and I have seen some extraordinary things happen for others through this work. Healing Touch helps to clear energetic baggage that no longer serves you and helps to bring harmony, peace and balance to your life. This is a partnership type modality. I do not fix you, for you are not broken. You are perfect as you are. I do, however, help you to relax and create a space in which your body can use its innate ability to heal.  The sessions are very calming and relaxing. I have had clients come for sessions just because it makes them feel better, as a gift to themselves. I have worked with people of all ages and with varying medical conditions. The work has helped them to heal faster after surgery, reduce anxiety, relieve pain and reduce stress. Schedule an appointment to see what Healing Touch can do for you. I look forward to working with you.

Why to receive a session…

I work from a space of compassion, caring and gratitude. My work is a service to you and assists you to get back to a balanced, relaxed, harmonious state of being. It is in this state that you can truly heal and be the person that you are meant to be. The fast paced, high stress, connected (or disconnected) world that we live in is taking its toll on our mind, our emotions and our bodies. It is important that we take a break once in a while to reset ourselves.

My training and experience…

I am a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner that was certified in 2015 by Healing Beyond Borders (formerly Healing Touch International). I started my training in September of 2012, but feel the journey into this work started long before that. My life has been a progressive path that seemed to unfold naturally into this work.

During the apprenticeship phase of my training, I volunteered at the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute that is part of Unity Hospital. This was a great experience for me as well as for the patients. When I started there, I thought the sessions would be most helpful with the side effects of the chemo treatments. What I quickly learned was that the patients were suffering more from the mental and emotional stress from dealing with the cancer than the side effects of the cancer treatments themselves. The sessions gave the patients relief from mental and emotional stress, a better sense of well-being as well as relief from pain and discomfort. Most reported that they felt better for days after the session. I did a Healing Touch session for a young lady during one of her last chemo treatments. She reported that she experienced fewer side effects during the treatment than what she had become accustom to.

Beyond the cancer patients, I have also done work for people of all ages and many different conditions. I have worked on a couple of people after surgery who reported that they felt that they healed faster due to the work that was done. I have also done sessions for people with anxiety and unexplained pain in which they found relief.

My current business…

I am now renting space from Healing Hands Family Chiropractic in Otsego, where I offer evening and weekend appointments. I also volunteer Healing Touch sessions at a drop in center for homeless youth. Those that I have worked with have been amazed at the results of the simple techniques.
