What is Therapeutic Touch?
Therapeutic Touch is a gentle yet powerful method of subtle energy healing developed in the mid-20th century by Dr. Dolores Krieger, RN, PhD, at New York University, and Dora Kunz, an internationally known healer. It is a healing technique based on the understanding that we are dynamic beings, always interacting energetically with our environment. Through this energetic connection, we can facilitate healing within ourselves and others. Therapeutic Touch is also a way of life, a vehicle for personal growth and transformation, as both the healer and client tap into their essential qualities during the process. Therapeutic Touch is taught in many universities as an effective, credible intervention in healthcare delivery.
