Therapeutic Touch Workshop June 20, 2015

Eleven women from Faith participated in a Therapeutic Touch Level 1 workshop on June 20 at Shirley Dusmet's home. The workshop was lead by Valerie Morrell, a registered trainer with the Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario. Therapeutic Touch (TT) is a healing modality that promotes relaxation, reduces anxiety and stress, manages pain and facilitates the body's natural healing process.
