Therapeutic Touch


►About Therapeutic Touch®

Energy coming out of hands as a person receives Therapeutic TouchTherapeutic Touch was developed in 1972 by Dolores Krieger, a Professor of Nursing at New York University and her mentor Dora Kunz. Therapeutic Touch is a type of energy work, an interpretation of several ancient healing practices. It is a consciously directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses the hands as a focus for facilitating healing. In Therapeutic Touch the word healing is defined as making whole.  

One of the premises of Therapeutic Touch is that we are all made of energy and energy extends beyond one's skin, like heat radiates from a fire. If our energy is balanced and running smoothly, we will feel better mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
