Northwest Therapeutic Touch Institute

A Satellite Chapter of TTIA

NWTTI was founded in 1998 by Neila Campbell, Bev Forster and Cordy Anderson and when Neila passed in 2002 Lin Bauer became the third Board Member. Bev, Lin and Cordy all are QTTTs.

The decision to create a non-profit institute had long been a dream of Neila’s, and was finally realized in 1998 with the help of generous donations from two supporters of Therapeutic Touch®. The Institute sponsors workshops annually, as well as several One Day Intensives. Members of NWTTI receive discounts on workshops and intensives and receive fall, winter and spring newsletters. NWTTI also offers scholarships for TT related events such as TT Workshops at Camp Indralaya.

Our mission is to continue to enhance and support the practice and study of Therapeutic Touch®, and to work towards providing Therapeutic Touch® to those who request it. Our website is

We were excited to have 7 of our members attend the 5th Annual TTIA Congress in Toronto. What a marvelous event! It was fulfilling up to the eyebrows! Wonderful to meet and get to know so many people from far-away places who are doing TT, and see so many friends unseen for a while.
