What is Therapeutic Touch (TT)?
Therapeutic Touch is a holistic, evidence-based therapy developed by Delores Krieger that incorporates the intentional and compassionate use of universal energy to promote balance and well-being. Therapeutic Touch is the intentionally directed process of energy exchange that utilizes the hands to facilitate healing. It is an evidence-based intervention that complements conventional health and wellness care.
Therapeutic Touch is based on the theory that the body, mind, and emotions form a complex energy field that extends beyond the skin. While receiving Therapeutic Touch you remain fully clothed and a typical session lasts 10-20 minutes. If you have any questions about Therapeutic Touch, even during the session, you should feel free to ask the practitioner. You will be given time before to talk about any concerns you may have and also time afterward to relax.
