What is Therapeutic Touch?

Therapeutic Touch is a holistic, evidence-based practice that incorporates the Intentional and Compassionate use of Universal Energy to promote balance and wellbeing.

Practitioners use their hands as a focus for facilitating Natural healing for their Healing Partner. As in other modalities referred to as the client.

The practice is administered through the compassionate intent to enable individuals to repatterned and rebalance their own energy field. Now we say Therapeutic Touch is basically a non-touch modality.

However, there are exceptions. In the beginning we ask permission if we may touch your shoulders to connect Energetically, and your feet. But basically, it is a non-touch modality. We follow the Therapeutic Touch International code of ethics!

You do remain fully clothed. You can receive this modality either sitting in a chair or laying down on a Reiki table.

Research has shown that Therapeutic Touch:

1) Facilitates relaxation and a sense of wellbeing.


2) Decreases symptoms of stress and anxiety.


3) Alters the perception of pain. Facilitates the body's natural healing process.


4) Simulates the body's immune system.


5) Decreases the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
