Your Pathway to Well Being

Therapeutic Touch Awareness Week May 7-13, 2018

Care 150 TTNO logo

CARE150 is a province-wide initiative to promote awareness of Therapeutic Touch, to celebrate and strengthen our involvement in our communities, and to develop new community connections.

Therapeutic Touch is currently available in more than thirty Healthcare Institutions across Ontario, and offered in more than twenty hospices.

Common effects of Therapeutic Touch

Research and clinical experience have shown its effectiveness in:

  • promoting a relaxation response.
  • reducing anxiety & stress.
  • managing pain.
  • improving sleep.
  • facilitating the body's natural healing process.
  • fostering a sense of well-being.

Therapeutic Touch can be used effectively for self-care.
