It is the mission of Therapeutic Touch International Association (TTIA) (formerly Nurse Healers - Professional Associates International - NH-PAI) to lead, inspire and advance excellence in Therapeutic Touch ® as a healing practice and lifeway.
Who We Are
TT is a contemporary interpretation of several ancient healing practices. It is a intentionally directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses the hands as a focus to facilitate the re-balancing of another's energy field in support of healing. Therapeutic Touch is a holistic process and works to restore balance and order in all aspects of the individual: body, mind, and spirit.
Where We Started
Therapeutic Touch has been a part of research-based practice since its development. Dr. Krieger's initial research demonstrated that the Therapeutic Touch interaction could increase hemoglobin levels in recipients as previous studies had indicated that chlorophyll content could be increased in healer treated plants.
