Behnert, left, gives a Healing Touch treatment to Linda Millard last week at Bartlett Regional Hospital. Healing touch is a form of energy work that balances the electromagnetic field around the body, helping people relax and often relieving pain. The hospital is recruiting Healing Touch volunteers for daytime hours. Bartlett has been offering the treatment for more than two years, but is trying to expand its volunteer base so that it can make the treatment available to more patients, according to Mary Szczepanski, Healing Touch coordinator. The first of several training session begins tonight. For more information, call Szczepanski at 790-2402.
