[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to clarify effects of healing touch on a patient with Parkinson's Disease (PD). [Method] A 74-year-old female patient with PD was assessed before and after a one-hour weekly healing touch treatment for five months to determine changes in specific symptoms. [Results] The effects of healing touch were found in terms of palliation of muscle contracture, progress of psychological relaxation, and improvement of insomnia. [Discussion] The effects of healing touch for patients with PD can be identified in three ways, i.e., decrease of physical pain, reduction of psychological burden, and easing a difficult lifestyle.
