TTNO Branch Contacts
A Therapeutic Touch® Branch is a place to increase your Therapeutic Touch skills in a supportive environment. To find a Branch in your area go to the Find a TTNO Branch Near You section of this website.
Most practitioners of Therapeutic Touch agree that being a member of a TTNO Brnch has both increased and helped maintain their Therapeutic Touch skills. Meetings are usually held at a regular time once or twice a month for two or three hours, in the afternoon or evening. There is almost always the opportunity to give and receive a Therapeutic Touch treatment. Some groups offer refreshments. There can be a donation required to cover room rent costs or for Therapeutic Touch material. For more information about TTNO branches click here.
