Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission

The mission of The Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario is to promote the practice and acceptance of Therapeutic Touch®, a non-invasive energy healing modality.

Our Vision

Therapeutic Touch, an energy-based healing modality, is widely recognized and practiced in Ontario to promote wholeness and well-being within our communities.

Our Values

As an organization and as individuals we believe in transparency, integrity, and collaboration. We embrace diversity, valuing mutual respect, and compassion. We strive to be supportive and attentive to our membership. Our intention is to provide clear and effective communication about, and standards for, competent Therapeutic Touch practice from a position of being present and grounded. Working together, we recognize the merit and strengths of this non-invasive energy-healing modality.

About Our Logo

Our logo, found at the top left corner of our website, is made up of the TTNO logo symbol along with the words "Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario". The logo symbol represents the energy healing we do. When we are giving a Therapeutic Touch session, the fields of the practitioner and client share the same space. This is shown in the outer blue and yellow fields interpenetrating at the green area of the symbol. However the fields of practitioner and client are multi-dimensional; we are working with body, emotion, mind and spirit. This is shown by the multiple energy fields of the symbol itself.

We become more aware of these energies when we are deeply focussed on our client. Where all these fields meet at the green centre of the symbol is an area of flow and change as healing takes place. This is represented by the curvature of the symbol toward the words The Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario in the logo.

infinity symbol The multiple infinity symbols that can be traced across the energy fields represent the infinite possibilities for healing to take place. That is how Therapeutic Touch Works!
