THERAPEUTIC TOUCH – LEVEL 1 WORKSHOP

Therapeutic Touch is a holistic, energy field therapy which uses near touch or light touch to support and stimulate a person’s own recuperative powers and immune system. It is considered a complementary therapy that integrates well with traditional medical care. Research shows that Therapeutic Touch promotes a relaxation response, reduces anxiety, improves sleep and speeds the healing of wounds and fractures. Initially taught to and practiced by healthcare professionals throughout the world, it is now known that anyone with the intent to help or heal has the ability to learn Therapeutic Touch for self care and care of family. Participants will learn the basics of Therapeutic Touch developed by Dolores Krieger, PhD, RN, and Dora Kunz: its history, theory, and various applications. There will be an opportunity to practice Therapeutic Touch with supervision and feedback. A $5.00 material fee is payable to instructor. Nancy Hall, RN, BScN has 30 years experience as a Therapeutic Touch practitioner and over 15 years as a recognized teacher. Nancy incorporates Therapeutic Touch into her hospice palliative care practice as a nurse at Bethell House, a residential hospice in Caledon.
