Therapeutic Touch Group with Marilyn Johnston Svoboda Fal 2021

In this Therapeutic Touch® (TT) course, we build on the knowledge, skills, and insights acquired through the TT Foundations course and regular TT practice. This course supports and enhances the learner’s evolving and deepening understanding of Therapeutic Touch. We will explore in-depth approaches for assisting individuals with a variety of health challenges. It includes more hands-on practice, reflective inquiry, and self-inquiry exercises. And as always, peace and healing are the nature of the class for all who come! This course satisfies the second class required for the credential of Qualified Therapeutic Touch Practitioner (QTTP) however it is open to those who wish to deepen their practice but are not pursuing a QTTP. All sessions are required.
