Therapeutic Touch® is a holistic, evidence-based therapy that incorporates the intentional and compassionate use of universal energy to promote balance and well-being in all aspects of the individual: body, mind, and spirit.
The Co-Creaters of Therapeutic Touch
Since these studies in the early 70’s, there has been numerous research studies on TT, including doctorial and masters theses. Therapeutic Touch is currently taught in more than 100 countries and it has been taught to over 200,000 individuals in the United States, Canada and around the world.
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. This finding was one of the first that allowed quantitative biochemical measurements in humans to detect healing energy effects (Gerber, 2001).

That’s it in a nutshell – anyone can do TT as long as they incorporate those same principals. We offer classes all over the US and the world – you can practice with family and friends, with your pets, as a Hospice Volunteer, in a hospital, etc. TT is not something you can learn in one weekend. It’s a lifelong practice – actually it is a lifeway. When you enter this world, you will find parts of your own being that you didn’t realize existed. You will become more than you thought you could be. Learning Therapeutic Touch is not just a commitment to a year or more of practice, but a commitment to self. To be introspective, to allow self-healing to occur, to get to know your Inner Self –whom Dee Krieger affectionately calls “ISSIE”.
Browse the website and you will learn about research that has been ongoing for the past 40 plus years – results that have been replicated over and over showing the efficacy of TT.
