Therapeutic Touch

Theory and Practice

THERAPEUTIC TOUCH involves a variety of specific processes intended to help and heal. It is more than the comforting touch of patients; it is a set of interactions that all healthcare practitioners can incorporate into their everyday practice, and which can be as rewarding to the practitioner as they are healing for the client.

Nurses, midwives, nurse-midwives, manual therapists, including massage therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, PTs, reflexologists, physician's assistants and natruopaths.
