Therapeutic Touch

A contemporary interpretation of ancient healing practices, Therapeutic Touch (TT) is the use of hands 2 to 4 inches from the client's body to balance and restore energy, in order to induce relaxation, reduce anxiety, change the perception of pain and facilitate the body's innate ability to heal. Developed in the early 1970's by Professor of Nursing Dolores Krieger PhD., R.N. at New York University and Doris Kung, TT is taught in numerous colleges and universities and practiced by thousands of health professionals, holistic practitioners and lay people around the world.
