Therapeutic Touch® Foundations

Foundations                      Jan 11, 18, 25, Feb 1       6 – 9 pm Atlantic             $143.75 with tax

Therapeutic Touch® is a non-invasive program that uses the energy of the hands to balance the energy of the biofield for a person.  The techniques can be used for self-care or for the care of others.  The foundations course offers the science and history of the techniques which go back over 50 years, when Dr. Delores Krieger and Dora Kunz first shared the techniques to the nurses and laypeople. The full program will be shared, providing a way for the person to be aware of energy and imbalance, as well as the awareness of flow and balance. Offered across 12 hours of experiential training, this course can be offered in person and online with great success.  The current course is being taught online.  If there is the opportunity to have someone present to work with, that is great, and if practice exercises need to be share with distance sessions this is also very profound to experience.

Instructors for these Therapeutic Touch classes are Natascha Polomski and Michelle Greenwell.  Together this team, with Education Chair of ATTN, Cherry Whitaker, created the first program of its kind for families within the TT framework.  We are very excited to launch this special course.  The TT Foundations course has a new student manual created jointly by Michelle and Natascha bringing online training forward with more visuals, exercises and opportunities with long distance energy work and distance treatments.  It is truly a magical experience to be offering these courses virtually as our experience over this last year has been that energy can be deeply felt and experienced across distance and shifts to balance can be instantaneous and inspiring.  See you soon in a new class!

“I have felt a lot of stress lately with working remotely and being away from colleagues for support. The ‘Peace Sphere’ helped me get more to a place of peace. I also liked that we could put ourselves in the peace bubble and make it our own.” TL, College Counsellor

“It is a valuable tool to help with anxiety and becoming more in touch with myself as well as connecting with other people. Hopefully one day I will be able to use this to benefit clients as well.” CH, BioEnergetic Wellness Student

“I was very aware of when I was no longer centered and grounded while assisting a client, and by stepping back and being aware, I could bring the flow of energy back easily to continue with my client. I had not been doing this effectively in my practice previously.” YK, BioEnergetic Wellness Facilitator and Gymnastic Coach

Expanding on the experiences of Module A, the exploration of the Module B includes the specialties that Natascha and Michelle excel in.  Natascha will be exploring more with the energy balancing of color and sound, while Michelle will be expanding your wellness possibilities with specific movements.  All of this plus the use of intention in a focused way for making changes and advancing your spirit into the areas of your life you would like to expand and grow with.  Each gathering will open up new possibilities of experience, breakout sessions to explore energy and balancing the system, gathering time for sharing, and home study activities to develop your skills and experience with energy and building vitality.  This new program is all set to bring 2021 into focus for optimum focus and wellbeing.
