What Is Therapeutic Touch?
Therapeutic touch is a subtle non-invasive therapy conducted by placing hands on or around the body of the patient.
It promotes a sense of acceptance and well being which may be felt by the patient as a deeply soothing feeling of warmth or one of cool and peaceful calm. As a therapy it provides a peaceful alternative to massage.
How It May Help:
Before, During And After:
There is no formal preparation needed for the therapy but for your own comfort wear loose clothing, only your shoes need to be removed for the treatment. Before the session starts you will discuss with the therapist your needs to help focus the treatment, which will last between 20 to 60 minutes depending on your personal programme. Following the therapy we recommend eating only light meals, drinking plenty of water, avoiding strenuous activity and no alcohol for 24 hours
