Foundations of Therapeutic Touch

June 9-13  (Saturday dinner-Wednesday breakfast)

Therapeutic Touch (TT) workshops were first offered at Camp Indralaya in 1977. Since that time, this healing technique has become increasingly accepted in hospitals and clinics throughout North America, in addition to being taught in many universities. TT is currently practiced and taught in over 90 countries around the world. A substantial body of research backs up the clinical wisdom that TT promotes the healing of a large variety of physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges.

This program provides a foundation in the theory and practice of Therapeutic Touch. It is designed for anyone new to the practice of TT or anyone wishing to refresh their practice. As a complementary and alternative modality, many health care professionals are learning TT, although any who have the desire to help another with their healing process are also encouraged to apply. Participants will practice fundamental techniques, understand the physiological effects, and learn about uses of TT in various settings. Experiencing a workshop such as this in the natural beauty of Indralaya greatly aids in deepening the learning process and nurtures you as you learn.

She presents Therapeutic Touch workshops internationally, particularly in working with people dealing with cancer and in the use of combining sound and music with TT.



Cordy Anderson RN, BSN QTTT, has been practicing TT since 1984 and teaching since 1991. She is the current chair of the Northwest Therapeutic Touch Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to TT education and support. No longer working 40 hours a week as a nurse, she now can devote much of her time to her private TT practice and teaching not only in Oregon but in places where there are no TT teachers.
