About this Course

Therapeutic Touch (TT) 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 consciously directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses the hands as a focus to facilitate the process.

This course will:

  • Provide an introduction to Therapeutic Touch including the theoretical foundations and philosophical assumptions of TT.
  • Describe the clinical research that's been done regarding Therapeutic Touch.
  • Explore the Inner Process related to Therapeutic Touch as well as the essential elements of the practice.
  • Allow participants to demonstrate experiential practice of Therapeutic Touch and learn how to integrate TT into practice with others and self.

This course will be submitted for approval of twelve (12) nurse contact hour by the Florida Nurses Association (CE provider # 50-3103)
