Welcome

Therapeutic Touch is a natural human potential and is a skill that requires compassion and intentionality. Therapeutic Touch is administered with the intent to enable people to re-pattern their energy toward wholeness and health.

Only Therapeutic Touch has a strong foundation as a medically researched energy-based modality, originally developed for use by health care professionals. The British Columbia Therapeutic Touch® Network Society (BCTTNS) is a non-profit organization that promotes and supports its members, and sets the standards for the practice and teaching of Therapeutic Touch®. The BCTTNS website provides information on education, practice groups, membership, research, Therapeutic Touch-related articles and conferences.

Our Mission

BCTTNS provides education and ongoing support to members interested in developing a standard level of expertise in Therapeutic Touch via training courses, conferences, practice groups, a referral service, mentoring, and ongoing research. BCTTNS will continue to raise awareness of Therapeutic Touch to the general public, including health care practitioners.

BCTTNS continues to build a strong Therapeutic Touch identity by playing an active role so that everyone may have access to Therapeutic Touch.

Our Vision

Everyone feels the relaxing and healing benefits of Therapeutic Touch.

TEACHING - learning, discovering and sharing knowledge

“Human beings have far greater depths within them than one might suppose. We all have access to these inner resources. They are not reserved for the few, the privileged or the especially gifted, for they are part of the human heritage.” Dora Van Gelder Kunz
