Therapeutic Touch is a healing art that is based on the ancient practice of “laying on hands”, however, there is no actual physical contact to the body. The theory is based on the concept that there are energy fields surrounding the body that a skilled practitioner can influence by removing blockages and increasing energy flow. The practitioner places the hands a good 2-6 inches from the body to assess the energy field. By using slow and rhythmic hand motions, blockages in the field are revealed. This is followed by replenishing the energy flow where necessary to release congestion and remove obstructions.
