therapeutic-touch_group_with_marilyn_johnston_svoboda_fall_2022.jpgTherapeutic Touch (TT) is a gentle and compassionate energy healing practice that is perfect for coping with the stressful world in which we live. It becomes a pathway for self care or self healing. During this 4-part class, you will learn the basics of practicing TT.

TT intentionally engages with the human energy fields and the universal healing field. It is a holistic practice, attending to the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. You will learn to consciously use your hands and the compassion of your heart to bring a sense of relaxation, balance, peacefulness, and well-being to family and friends. We invite you to experience the sense of peace that is created with each session, so that even as you learn, you receive the gift of Therapeutic Touch.
