Therapeutic Touch® Week across Canada May 6-13, 2019
Therapeutic Touch is a non invasive healing technique by facilitating the body’s natural healing process and fostering a sense of well-being. Research has been conducted on the efficacy of Therapeutic Touch in clinical settings showing Therapeutic Touch is effective in promoting relaxation, managing pain, reducing anxiety/stress, and improving sleep. Anyone can learn the technique which can be used effectively for self-care.
Each session of Therapeutic Touch is tailored to the individual needs and rarely exceeds 40 minutes including the rest period. The recipient remains fully clothed and may be seated or lying down. The session can be done with light touch on the shoulders, hands, legs, feet or NO touch.
Developed by Dr. Dolores Krieger and Dora Kunz in 1972 at the U. of New York and available across Canada since 40 years with six Networks including ATTN. See the website above for further information/location.
