Pat King welcomes people to the launch of a Wholeness Centre at St. Columba'a Church

Spiritual healing

St. Columba’s Church introduced Health Touch at its opening of its Wholeness Centre, which offers a holistic approach to healing.

PORT HARDY—St. Columba’s Church has been attending to the spiritual needs of Port Hardy for years while next door the hospital has looked after the physical.

But the church aims to blur that line, introducing Health Touch at last weekend’s opening of its Wholeness Centre, which offers a holistic approach to healing.

Rev. Wade Allen explained that the church is exploring several avenues under the umbrella of the Wholeness Centre, from the Wild Heart Music Choir to a planned Walk to Remember which will commemorate children who have passed away.

One of those avenues will be monthly healing nights where anyone can come and experience energetic healing.

As Pat King explained, Health Touch is based on the Quantum Touch system, and to this “toolbox” local practitioners have added and refined other techniques. She and Quantum Touch instructor Randy Zonnis told the audience that practitioners of the technique acted as channels and catalysts for natural energies.

They gave the example of a cut finger or broken bone to illustrate the idea that the body has the ability to self-heal and said that their technique merely acted as a catalyst for this natural process.

Several people attested to the effectiveness of the treatment, citing eased pain, improved health and emotional benefits.

“It’s really exciting for me to be a part of this,” said Zonnis, a five-year veteran of Quantum Touch and trainer of the local practitioners.

According to literature at the event, volunteers will welcome prospective patients and ask them to fill in a form describing the site of pain. Two practitioners will then perform a 15-30 minute treatment involving light touch on or above the affected area. Treatments are free, although donations to the church will be accepted.

For more information contact Rev. Allen at 250-949-6247 or to book an appointment contact Darlene O’Neil, 250-230-7940.
