Therapeutic Touch is a modern version of several ancient healing practices. Developed in the 1970s by Dolores Krieger, PhD, RN, and Dora Kunz, it is now taught and studied in hospitals and universities worldwide. It is used to complement regular medical treatment and may help your body’s own ability to heal. It is based on the concept that you are an energy field. When you are well, energy flows in, through and out of the body in a balanced, ordered way. The flow of energy may be impeded when you are ill or injured. The goal of Therapeutic Touch is to restore order and balance to the field, thus supporting the healing process.

 Research and experience have shown the effectiveness of Therapeutic Touch in

  • Eliciting a relaxation response and reducing anxiety
  • Changing the perception of pain
  • Facilitating the body’s natural restorative process
  • Enhancing the rapport between a client and a practitioner

Any condition which could be helped by these effects can benefit from Therapeutic Touch.
