Therapeutic Touch (TT) is a gentle, healing practice using the hands, heart and mind in a compassionate and intentional way. It brings a sense of balance, peacefulness, and well-being to those who are ill, dying, or those with simple everyday stressors. It decreases pain and anxiety. Therapeutic Touch ® (TT) is a healing therapy based on the scientific understanding that matter and energy are both vibrations, and are essentially the same. An additional benefit of this practice is the deep sense of peacefulness and well being it brings to the practitioner. TT is well researched and has a significant presence in health care settings in the US and around the world. In this workshop you will learn about the human energy field, or biofield, and TT. You will have many opportunities to practice, and to discover new things about yourself and about healing. Each session will be filled with discussion, meditation, centering and experiential exercises. Both sessions are required. For those who seek the credential of “Qualified Therapeutic Touch Practitioner” it is the first of two required courses. No prerequisite: Invited to attend are health care professionals, caregivers for family and friends, and community members, seeking a pathway to deepen their spiritual journey.
