Therapeutic Touch (TT) Therapy

Therapeutic Touch (invented by Dolores Krieger is based on the assumption that a "human energy field" extends beyond the skin. The idea behind TT is that this human energy field is abundant and flows in balanced patterns in health but is depleted and/or unbalanced in illness or injury. Practitioners believe they can restore health by sensing and adjusting such fields.
