Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary interpretation of several ancient healing practices. Complementary therapies, such as Therapeutic Touch, have many implications for the health care of the future.

Therapeutic Touch was developed in the early 1970’s through the pioneering work of Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N., and Dora Kunz. As a professor of nursing at New York University, Dr. Krieger has integrated Therapeutic Touch into mainstream professional nursing practices. Members of the entire spectrum of health professionals have incorporated Therapeutic Touch into their practices. Dr. Krieger has recently expanded her audience from these healing professionals to include all people who have an interest in learning the gentle art of Therapeutic Touch.

Therapeutic Touch is a healing practice based on the conscious use of the hands to direct or modulate, for therapeutic purposes, selected non-physical human energies that activate the physical body. This useful technique has a clinical and research base and is currently taught in universities, colleges and health care facilities around the world.

Therapeutic Touch is a non-invasive therapy used to elicit the relaxation response, reduce pain, accelerate the healing process and decrease stress response.

Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary energy-based therapy that uses the body’s own, Electromagnetic field, to promote healing and well-being of a client.

Therapeutic Touch promotes:

  • relaxation/ reduction of pain
  • releases tension
  • decreases anxiety
  • alters perception of pain and discomfort
  • enhances traditional medical interventions
  • assists in post-operative recovery
  • assists in wound and fracture healing
  • stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism
  • promotes a feeling of comfort and well-being

Therapeutic Touch is a modern application of ancient forms of healing which use the laying-on of hands. And, as a Therapeutic Touch Practitioner I use my hands in the client’s energy field to assist healing.

As a client, you will remain fully clothed, in a sitting or lying down position. Then I will move my hands at a distance of a few inches from your body, although touching can be involved.

Therapeutic Touch was developed in the 1970’s by Dolores Krieger. She a professor of nursing at New York State University, and her mentor was Dora Kunz, an intuitive with clairvoyant abilities.

It’s been said that Dora Kunz grew up in Indonesia and lived in several different countries where she encountered the healing practices of various cultures.

Apparently when the scientist Dolores Krieger and the intuitive Dora Kunz met, they decided to join forces and they developed a method of healing. Since then tens of thousands of people have been taught this technique. Many of which are nurses or other health professionals, and many like myself, are lay people.
