Therapeutic Touch Course in Ephraim

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) will offer a day-long workshop on Sept. 10 teaching the concepts and practice of Therapeutic Touch (TT). The session will be taught by Coral Peterson, Baileys Harbor, a practitioner of TT.

According to the Web site, TT is a contemporary healing modality drawn from ancient practices and developed by Dora Kunz and Dolores Krieger. The practice is based on the assumptions that human beings are complex fields of energy, and that the ability to enhance healing in another is a natural potential.

Therapeutic Touch is used to balance and promote the flow of human energy. It is taught in colleges around the world and has a substantial base of formal and clinical research. This research has shown that TT is useful in reducing pain, improving wound healing, aiding relaxation, and easing the dying process. It can be learned by anyone with a sincere interest and motivation towards helping others. TT has become a widely accepted form of alternative therapy in hospitals and other health agencies.

The TT session will be held at the UUFDC, 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim an Sept. 10 from 10 am – 3 pm. The morning session will include an introduction to TT with an opportunity to practice the concepts while working in pairs in the afternoon. Bring a lunch; beverages will be provided. Cost is $10 for UUFDC members and $15 for non-members. The session is open to the public, and enrollment is limited to 40.
