Therapeutic Touch

  • therapeutic-touchWhat is it?

Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary healing modality drawn from ancient practices and developed by Dora Kunz and Dolores Krieger. The practice is based on the assumption 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. Research has shown that Therapeutic Touch is useful in reducing pain, improving wound healing, aiding relaxation, and easing the dying process. Therapeutic Touch uses a practice called “laying on of hands” to correct or balance energy fields. The word “touch” is misleading because physical touch is generally not involved. Instead, the hands hover over the body.

  • How do I know I need this?
  • If you or a loved one have been suffering from chronic body pain, digestive problems, eating disorders or migraine headaches and have been to conventional doctors without finding relief then you may benefit from this approach.

  • During the years I worked as a massage therapist, I discovered that people store away emotions in the body. Depending on where and how the emotion is lodged, I developed different hands on methods to help people find relief from pain. I also found that sometimes talk therapy can get in the way of accessing and releasing stored emotions. In such situations, I  recommend Therapeutic Touch as a way to access well being.
    If you are dealing with physical pain and and have tried traditional medicine, but found no relief then you may benefit from Therapeutic Touch. Call now to set up a time for an initial consultation with Dr. Zarrabian. Sessions are available in English and Farsi.
