Although I have known Rita on a casual basis through the local Healing Touch community and knew of her intuitive skills, I had never experienced healing touch with her until about 3 years ago. In 2019 I was having chronic pain at the base of my skull. I assumed it was either TMJ or an inner ear disorder, but both were ruled out by specialists. Remembering the comfort level I had during previous encounters with Rita, I contacted her for treatment.
What I love about her is she takes all the time needed to know her clients. Never ever have I felt rushed or that there was shortness of time. She assessed my condition as stress related and after 3 sessions I experienced no more pain for well over 2 years. In the last few months I have had to deal with the illness of a 92 year old relative. The ensuing stress was high and the pain resurfaced. One session with Rita resolved it!
She is my go to person for healing, relaxing and inspiration. The last 2 sessions resulted in 2 messages I received from energy source while Rita was working on me:
1. “ You don’t have to do. Just be.”
2. “You can handle any difficulty with grace, calm and creativity.”
These were two bonuses I never expected to receive. The point is Rita can relax you to where you are open to hear the messages that need to be heard.
I now see her every 3 weeks at my request, not her urging. She is my “safe” place where I can unwind and be relaxed and heal.
I had the good fortune of meeting Rita through Carolina Breast Friends at the Pink House in Charlotte, NC. I have been practicing yoga for close to 15 years now and know how important healing our bodies through alternative methods is vital to our total health - mind, body, and soul. My first session with Rita was prior to my bi-lateral mastectomy. I did not know what to expect but Rita guided me through the entire process prior to treating me.
While I was on the table, I started asking questions about what was happening. I could feel the heat of the healing energy. Rita is such a comfort. Just being in the room with her brings me a certain calm and peace. Having gone through breast cancer herself, she know first hand what we are going through. Not only did she heal my body with her energy, she calmed my mind about the journey I was about to embark on.
Rita then came and treated me while I was in the recovery room. My surgery ended up lasting much longer than anyone anticipated. 9 hours rather than the 5-6 we were expecting. Needless to say, I was completely out of it but I did know Rita was there and that gave me great comfort in my confusion. Rita treated me again in the hospital. She was amazing. She walked in the room and saw things she did not like and immediately had the nurses tending to things. My nurses all knew her or knew of her and I heard nothing but positive remarks and how smart I was for having her treat me.
About a week after being home, I saw Rita again. She welcomed me into her home where she has a treatment room. I met her husband and her dog! My fiance was with me and was also warmly welcomed. During this session, I shared with Rita some very difficult emotional issues I was dealing with. She was understanding, compassionate, and instrumental in helping me through a very difficult time. I cannot advocate enough for the benefits of Healing Touch and in particular Rita Horton.
As a breast cancer survivor, promoting awareness and prevention has become my driving force. Healthy options are few and far in between, especially without affordable health insurance. Rita Horton provides me with her spectacular Healing Touch services through Carolina Breast Friends as my alternative medicine of choice. Since my involvement with Carolina Breast Friends, I have had the opportunity, and great pleasure, in getting to know Rita for the past two years. As my Healing Touch therapist, I can sincerely say, I am truly grateful for her work and compassion.
Rita displays a powerful work ethic. Her big smile and positive energy radiates beyond to a more personal level that balances my energies. As a survivor of a disease so close to my heart, I appreciate her natural talent and spiritual connection. Most importantly, Rita's authentic energy gives me the natural dose of medicine I need to maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Most visits, I enter her office space feeling heavy, and ill. Thus is why I need to see her. One particular session with Rita, she was able to move lots of pent up energy from my throat and heart as I felt the immense heat from those areas as well. After every hour session, we discuss the results. However, this particular session, we discussed my heavy emotions as the release was obvious. The hidden emotions on my part were evident. At that point, I had the clarity to do what needed to be done. I hopped into my car, and booked my two day Me-cation. This goes to show how impactful Rita's service is to me. Without her help, I would not have had taken the much needed Me-vaction to my ever peaceful place, the Angel Oak Tree on John's Island, SC. At the same time, she continues to keep me grounded and balanced holistically.
Rita's professional expertise channels my energies in ways no traditional therapist/doctor can do for me. For this reason, I highly recommend Rita Horton to anyone who desires natural healing.
I met Rita Horton at Carolina Breast Friends (The Pink House) when she was performing Healing Touch. I learned a little about Healing Touch and decided to try it for myself.
I was experiencing some pain and discomfort from my Mastectomy. After being treated by Rita, I felt calmer and much less bothered by my discomfort as well as the pain I was experiencing. With another visit with Rita, my pain had gone away. When I scheduled my reconstruction, I spoke with Rita and set up a schedule for my operation.
I saw Rita the week before my operation to just calm myself down (I was having a problem with my blood pressure). Then right after the operation we arranged with my doctor to have Rita come in to the recovery room to help with getting the anesthesia out of my body. I know this had worked because when I woke up, I was able to speak with the nurses and doctors without being foggy and knowing what I was saying.
The next day, Rita came to my room to help me manage my pain. I can only say that I know it worked because the nurses could not understand why I was hardly using the pain pump.
I only have the best thoughts and feelings for Rita and of course Healing Touch.
At my request, Rita Horton has been allowed in the recovery room to perform Healing Touch upon me after each surgery_ Being a Healing Touch apprentice myself, I always believed in the power of Healing Touch, but after being the client, and experiencing it from the other side, I can't tell you how impressed I was_ During each session Rita brought me from incoherent and babbling and not having any situational awareness, to being absolutely present in the moment, with a feeling of peace and relaxation, without any anxiety. Rita always has a very calming presence and that compiled with Healing Touch, can only provide for a very positive outcome.
I also contribute the unusually quick recovery, allowing me to go home in a relatively short period of time, along with a minimum amount of postoperative pain to her Healing Touch session. It is one thing to believe that Healing Touch works from a practitioner standpoint, but is a real blessing to KNOW that it works, from the client side, as well. Rita has always been a professional and shown a definite competency in all of her Healing Touch sessions.
I started seeing Rita for chronic pain I was having in my right knee and overall joint pains post a COVID infection the previous year. I could barely walk up and down stairs due to the pain. Rita asked me questions to help her understand my concerns. She helped me feel so at ease. I immediately felt a connection with her spirit. I just knew I was in good hands. I was also dealing with a lot of stressors in my life as well.
After the first session I felt so much peace and was able to release some of my anxiety. After several sessions and a change in my diet after learning I was gluten intolerant, I am able to almost run up and down the stairs.
I have made it a priority to have regular Healing Touch sessions with Rita. She listens to my concerns and is always able to make me feel better after each session.
