Can anyone learn to do Therapeutic Touch?
The answer to that question is yes, given the desire and motivation. The ability to do TT is a natural human potential. However, there are several important criteria. One must have compassion, the willingness to learn the process, do the “inner work” that is essential, and continually challenge ones self with the question “Why do I want to be a healer?” And while one can learn the basics in a 12 hour workshop, Therapeutic Touch is a discipline which requires practice, focus and concentration to develop excellence as a practitioner. It helps to have an understanding of how the physical body works.
Health care workers, especially nurses, are attracted to Therapeutic Touch because they have a natural compassion and desire to help in their frequent contact with people who are ill and in need of help.
Where can I find a TT teacher?
There are a number of teachers listed under Qualified Teachers. If you do not see one listed for your geographical area, please contact the TTIA office at: [email protected] and ask for the name of a networker. Networkers are TTIA members who have volunteered to assist people in finding practitioners or teachers in their local areas.
