Therapeutic Touch Institute

Welcome to the Therapeutic Touch Institute where the future is now!

Therapeutic Touch is a holistic therapy that affects body, mind, emotions and spirit in a gentle, healing way.  Whether to relieve a headache, calm a muscle spasm, soothe a crying baby or stimulate the recovery of a sick person, Therapeutic Touch shows you how to become part of your own or someone else’s healing process.

As we learn and practice and as we receive Therapeutic Touch, we find our lives coming into a state of harmony and balance…and we go more lightly through life.  It is a simple yet profound learning about oneself, others and the world and teaches us how we can open our hearts and be present with ourselves and others to alleviate pain and suffering and facilitate peace, strength and healing and enhance the quality of life.

At the Therapeutic Touch Institute, we offer the following programs and services:

Basic Level Workshops in Therapeutic Touch™

Continuing Education Programs in Therapeutic Touch

Practitioner Training and Development Programs

Kaizen Healers’ Circle
