Therapeutic Touch (TT) is a gentle, healing practice using the hands, heart, and mind to bring a sense of balance, peacefulness, and well-being to those who are ill, dying, or have simple everyday stressors. It is a holistic, evidence-based healing therapy that incorporates the intentional and compassionate use of universal energy.
