What is Intuitive
Intuitive Touch is Jacqueline Vanacek's signature technique for
delivering Healing Touch,
a somatic bodywork emphasizing compassionate,
heart-centered care. Gentle, non-invasive touch is applied to key acupressure points of the body to restore
harmony and balance within the human biofield, thus improving
physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual
health and self-healing.
The human biofield, as defined by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) at the National Institutes of Health, is the body's energy anatomy for the "life force" or "qi" as in Eastern medicine. Many alternative therapies are based on this Eastern philosophy, which promotes balance and integration of body, mind and spirit for optimal wellness.
Common energy-based healing approaches include the Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, including Acupuncture, Qi Gong and Reflexology, for example.
Benefits of Intuitive
Clients report effects like deep
relaxation, serenity and more vivid creativity, as well as releases
of long held emotion, pain relief, and "coming
to terms" with grief and loss.
Intuitive Touch complements conventional medical interventions for
- Stress, Fear and Anxiety Relief
- Improved Sleep and Mood
- Pain Management
- Spiritual Healing
- Emotional Support during Life Transition, as in
Relationships, Career, Hospice etc.
Intuitive Touch can also foster deep meditation during which one can experience Insights for self-knowledge and Life purpose. Jacqueline offers a customized program to enhance Intuition, Creativity and managing Personal Transition.
Overall, Intuitive Touch relieves stress. Stress is believed to be the source of 80+% of disease, impairing both the body's immune capabilities and one's ability to cope. Research shows that mitigating stress during conventional medical treatments can enhance the body's own healing capacity with profound results.
Clinical research also shows enhanced benefit in psychological counseling.

Treatment techniques are gentle and respectful of the client's body, spirit, and privacy. Sessions are fully clothed, and confidentiality is assured.
