The Huntington Society of Canada Learns About Therapeutic Touch

The Whitby Tlynn v at HC event for webTNO Branch has developed a community partnership with the Huntington Society of Canada Durham Region Group through presentations at their support group and offering TT sessions at the Durham Region Walk to Cure Huntington Disease.  Huntington Disease (HD) is a genetic neurological disorder which affects an individual’s emotional, cognitive and physical status.  Currently this progressive disease is incurable.  

On April 25, 2016 the Whitby Branch was invited to present Therapeutic Touch to the Huntington Society of Canada - Family Services Resource Centre Directors' meeting. There were 16 social workers in attendance from BC (1), AB (2), SK (1), MB (1), ON (6), NB (1), NS/PEI (1) and NL (1).  Also attending were the Family Services Coordinator from the National Office and the National Director of Family Service and Community Development.  Three practitioners (Lynn Vukosavljevic, Holly Nicol and Bunny Clark) attended to present TT, provide a demonstration of a session and offer mini TT sessions to interested individuals. All the provincial networks that have their own pamphlets generously sent copies for the presentation so the social workers received the applicable pamphlet, the TTNC pamphlet and the TTNO handouts.  

They are a very compassionate group of people and our presentation was well received.  There was lively discussion with many challenging questions being answered. Therapeutic Touch was brand new to a few people. Some had a hard time understanding how TT works, but have received benefits from other energy therapies and so are open to TT.   A few mentioned that they will investigate Level 1 classes.   One member felt that this information on TT will be helpful in the future to support clients.  They appreciated the opportunity to receive TT and half of the participants chose to receive a Therapeutic Touch session.

It's wonderful to spread the value of Therapeutic Touch, especially to a group that works with individuals and families coping with such a complex disease.

The three Guelph Branches participated in the annual Transformational Wellness Fair in Guelph on April 29th, 2017. There were over 25 holistic practitioners participating and we felt very privileged to be among them.

It was a very well attended successful event. We had the opportunity of providing about 27 Therapeutic Touch Sessions throughout the day and introducing the community to Therapeutic Touch.

Therapeutic Touch at the Al Green Art Studio

On March 28 Crystahawk crystall Hawk gave a talk on “TT for Self-Care” to the Al Green Sculpture Studio where she had been a member for 15 years. This was an early CARE150 Therapeutic Touch Awareness week event since she will be in Vancouver presenting at the BC TT Network Conference during that week.

Eighteen members attended including several retired medical personnel, a doctor, a dentist and two nurses. Each of those attending received a 6-page information TT book explaining the modality. The members took part in some exercises to learn unruffling and its uses, energized cotton, and saw a demonstration of the Hand-Heart Connection. Unexpectedly, at one point one attendee told of her experience when Crystal helped her with TT through a difficult surgery she had several years ago. Then five more members told their stories of being helped with TT at various times. Crystal had totally forgotten how many times she had offered TT to members and their family members over the years. This made the event very personal. Then members who had used their energized cotton wash cloths on various parts of their bodies during the talk began to report positive outcomes. A leg and a knee had stopped hurting. The event was closed with members doing the “Blue Bottle Imagery” with the gifted blue stones in their hands. Crystal appreciated being able to offer something of interest to so many old friends. Since it was the day before Crystal’s 88th birthday they ended with a birthday cake and ice cream. Crystal is the co-founder, along with Mary Simpson, of The Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario.

Therapeutic Touch Introduction for the Huntington Society of Canada - Durham Support Group

On Feb. 22, 2017 The Whitby TTNO Branch gave a presentation to about 15 members of the Huntington Society of Canada- Durham Support Group.  Four members of the Whitby Branch attended.  Our presentation included a brief introduction to Therapeutic Touch through the KoKreative DVD and a discussion focussing on its role in integrative medicine.  Afterward a demonstration was given with short Therapeutic Touch sessions offered to all interested participants. 

“After the treatments many people said they felt more calm, relaxed and happier.  Positivity is something we can all use more of, so thank you for that.”

One lady felt improvement in her sore shoulder. A gentleman felt so relaxed he could fall asleep.  His jerky movements appeared to soften.
