Healing touch, as a complementary therapy, was provided to 14 patients as a nursing care method in a community setting. The comparison of pre- and post-test outcomes demonstrated statistically significant effects in three of the four domains: "physical," "emotional," and "thinking". The generality of effect was large. There were no negative effects. This healing touch treatment was non-invasive, effective, non-toxic, and economical. Healing touch has a strong potential as an effective and efficient intervention in the setting of community nursing care.
