Therapeutic Touch® is a holistic, evidence-based therapy that incorporates the intentional and compassionate use of universal energy to promote balance and well-being. It is a healing modality based on the premise that matter is energy, and energy is matter. In other words, we humans are really energy! That energy extends beyond our physical body and interacts with other energy systems – people and things – in our environment. TT was developed in the early 1970’s by Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N. and the late Dora Kunz, as a variation of laying on of hands – a laying on of hands without physically touching the body. With our intent we help direct the rebalancing of the human energy system. TT is always practiced from a centered, conscious state of inner quiet.
