How It Works

There are several basic assumptions that underlie the practice.

Three of these are:

  • In a healthy state, life energy flows freely in and out of a person’s energy field in an orderly fashion.
  • With disease or injury, energy flow can be obstructed, disordered or depleted.
  • Therapeutic Touch practitioners help to restore the flow of energy in the field and move it toward wholeness and health.
