Touch was developed in 1972 by Dolores Krieger Ph.D., RN. and
her mentor Dora Kunz. TT is a process that mobilizes the
energy field around the body for the purpose of assisting
physical, emotional and mental healing.
TT is taught
by nurses, hospice workers, lay practitioners and other health
care professionals to complement standard medical care. It
is included in the curriculum of many universities at the
Master's and Ph.D. levels of Nursing.
Touch is a complementary healing practice and is used as an
adjunct to medical care already being provided. It is
useful in pre-operative and post-operative situations, also to
promote movement toward wellness in burns/fractures, wound
healing and pain management.
and Common Uses
Touch is regularly used by practitioners for ear aches, fevers,
bruises, flue, stress relief and headache pain. It is
commonly used in hospitals and hospices to help alleviate the
on-set of stress and pain associated with many standard
practices and procedures. It is also felt by many to
alleviate burn-out in staff.
Dr. Mehmet Oz,
renowned heart surgeon at Columbia University Hospital, has
nurse practitioners providing TT during major heart surgery to
reduce the possibility of infection, immune system stress, and
post-surgical pain, therefore significantly improving wound
healing and recovery times.
