Course #1- Foundations of Therapeutic Touch®  Online Course

Contemporary research demonstrates that Therapeutic Touch (TT) can be used to promote relaxation, reduce anxiety and pain, and promote healing for self and others. TT is a non-invasive, holistic approach that supports the body's own natural healing resources. Through use of the hands, variations in the human energy field are identified and the practitioner can work towards restoring balance in the field. Basic assumptions underlying the practice of TT, supporting theoretical frameworks, the T.T, process, and research will be addressed. Through interaction, demonstration, practice, and discussion you learn beginning skills in the process of TT. This course supports the development of foundational skills for practicing TT with self and family, and is the first course in becoming a recognized TT practitioner.
