Therapeutic Touch has been taught to tens of thousands of health professionals and is available at hundreds of hospitals and teaching centers worldwide. It is a healing modality that has eased the discomforts of broken bones, surgery, and disease, and even saved the lives of newborns. Now, for the first time, one of its co-founders reveals the true nature of the healer-client relationship, and what occurs during the healing process.
Based on Dolores Krieger’s brilliant career as a registered nurse, researcher, and professor, the exercises and teachings in this book will forever change our understanding of the healing arts. Learn how centering yourself and focusing your attention are at the core of all healing interventions. Learn how energy works as a force in our bodies, and how a healer properly connects with a person seeking healing. And in the process learn the answer to an essential question, Why do I want to be a healer?
Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N. (1921-2019) was the author of The Therapeutic Touch, Accepting Your Power to Heal, and Therapeutic Touch Inner Workbook and was a professor emerita of nursing science at New York University.
