Therapeutic Touch can be used for people of all ages. I have beneficially used it from premature infants to those near end of life. One does not need to be ill to receive benefits.
As all life is energy, it is commonly used for animals and plants. There have been and continue to be extensive studies on Therapeutic Touch with more cataloged at The National Institutes of Health (NIH) than any other complementary therapy. It is taught in university nursing programs and is practiced in hospitals and healthcare agencies all over the world. In Columbus, Ohio certification programs are taught at Ohio State and Capital universities and is practiced in local hospitals and healthcare agencies. To the TT community’s knowledge, I am the only qualified practitioner in private practice offering Therapeutic Touch in Central Ohio.
