Therapeutic Touch (from ABC's)

Therapeutic Touch

A therapeutic touch (TT) practitioner (often a nurse) moves his or her hands over the patient's body as a focus to redirect energy for healing. Despite the name, TT is generally done without direct physical contact.

TT can increase a sense of well-being in patients with cancer and decrease pain. A typical session lasts between 10 to 30 minutes, during which time the recipient sits or lies down fully clothed. The vast majority of patients who participate in TT report feeling deeply relaxed during the treatment.

Contact Nurse Healers - Professional Associates International at www.therapeutic-touch.org.Safety. Inform the TT practitioner of known tumor and metastatic sites before treatment begins.

While there is no formal certification procedure, choose a TT practitioner who has completed a formal training course.
