This "energy field" therapy was developed in the early ‘70’s by Dolores Krieger, PhD, RN, Professor Emerita of NYU, and her colleague Dora Kunz. Forty years of research and clinical experience shows that Therapeutic Touch:
- Elicits a relaxation response
- Reduces pain and anxiety and
- Promotes healing
It is accepted as a complementary, supportive therapy in many hospitals, hospices, cancer support organizations and long term care facilities.
