Therapeutic Touch


Therapeutic Touch (TT), defined by the Nurse Healers-Professional Associates International Inc (NH-PAI), is a contemporary interpretation of several ancient healing practices and is an intentionally directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses the hands as a focus to facilitate healing. It was developed in the early 1970's by Dolores Krieger PhD, RN and Dora Kunz, a natural healer. It is grounded in nursing research. The co-founders endorsed NH-PAI as the official organization of Therapeutic Touch.


Therapeutic Touch is a mindful act of compassion that promotes relaxation and comfort. It may be helpful to those experiencing anxiety, stress, pain, infections, wounds, nausea, immune system disorders and end of life. Therapeutic Touch enhances the body's natural healing processes and connection with ones inner sense of peace.


Therapeutic Touch is a natural human potential that most people can learn with the appropriate education. Qualities that could be considered prerequisites to learning Therapeutic Touch are desire, compassion, a sense of well-being and the discipline to practice the process once it is learned to help other people, animals or plants!
