In the early 1970s, registered nurse Dolores Krieger knew intuitively that she and her fellow nurses could do more to ease pain and accelerate healing. Out of this real-world inspiration, Krieger helped develop "Therapeutic Touch": a non-invasive technique that uses the flow of energy through the palms of the hands to soothe and heal. Dr. Krieger's landmark book on the subject, Therapeutic Touch: How to Use Your Hands to Help or to Heal (Prentice-Hall, 1979) is currently in its 37th reprinting.
On Therapeutic Touch, Dr. Krieger brings easy-to-learn techniques directly to the hands of every interested listener, helping them to free their natural healing power and apply it to everyone they touch. Using a photo-illustrated study guide accompanying the tape course, listeners learn practical methods for reducing pain, supporting the body's natural healing processes, boosting immune response, and invoking deep relaxation. Today, Therapeutic Touch is practiced in more than 100 U.S. hospitals and clinics and taught in 75 countries. Now Dr. Krieger's eagerly awaited Therapeutic Touch audio presentation offers professional and lay healers worldwide a rare opportunity to receive original teachings from this renowned and celebrated authority.
