Transpersonal Nature of Therapeutic Touch® course offered in January 2023

Therapeutic Touch is a safe, non-invasive healing modality that can be learned by anyone with compassion and the desire to help another. It was developed by Dolores Krieger, RN, PhD and Dora van Gelder Kunz in the early 1970’s, Therapeutic Touch was derived from ancient healing modalities and has a long history of application and research. It is used to promote healing of, not just physical issues, but also emotional, and spiritual challenges. Therapeutic Touch is defined as a holistic, evidence based therapy that incorporates the intentional and compassionate use of universal energy to promote balance and well-being.

Therapeutic Touch is based on the idea that Wholeness, Compassion and Natural Order are inherent in nature. Through quieting ourselves, we can connect to this healing energy and compassionately and consciously use our hands, hearts and will to direct it to support healing. 

“The ability to promote healing is a natural human potential” – Dora Kunz

In health, life energy flows freely throughout the body.  In contrast, dis-ease is a condition of energy imbalance or disorder. Therapeutic Touch has been proven to promote a deep relaxation response, easing of tension and anxiety, pain reduction, an acceleration of the healing process and an increase in comfort at the end of life.

“Therapeutic Touch is only partially about healing others. Equally – perhaps even more importantly – it is about an inner journey. It is important to acknowledge that the empowerment in Therapeutic Touch comes through the TT therapist’s quest for a liaison with the Inner Self.” —Dolores Krieger, PhD, RN

Therapeutic Touch Pop-up Practice Groups are held from time to time. Contact Peg for details on the next events.
