Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary interpretation of hands on healing, developed, researched, and currently used by health professionals. A Therapeutic Touch practitioner attunes to the client’s energy field, finds weakened or congested areas, and re-balances or refreshes them using touch techniques. Treatment may release tension, promote relaxation, decrease anxiety, alleviate pain and help facilitate the body’s natural healing processes. It is especially useful for chronic pain and stress management, and for easing the transition of the terminally ill. Therapeutic Touch is taught in 80 Universities and practiced by an estimated 30,000 professionals around the world.
