Foundations of Therapeutic Touch: The First Course

Healing with the Heart and Hands

Saturday, September 28 – Sunday, September 29, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Therapeutic Touch is a gentle, healing practice using the hands, heart and mind that brings a sense of balance, peacefulness, and well-being to those who are ill, dying, or those with simple everyday stressors. It decreases pain and anxiety. It is a holistic, evidence-based healing modality that incorporates the intentional and compassionate use of universal energy. An additional benefit, related to the compassionate, meditative nature of the practice, is the deep sense of peacefulness and well-being it brings to the practitioner. TT is well researched and has a significant presence in health care settings in the U.S. and all over the world. This course establishes a foundational knowledge base for beginning TT practice. For those who seek the credential of “Qualified Therapeutic Touch Practitioner” it is the first of two courses. 

Please bring a vegetarian lunch for each day. Tea, water, and snacks are provided during breaks.
