Therapeutic Touch

In early July of '09 some of our family members participated in a Therapeutic Touch class taught by a specialist at Seattle Children's Hospital. This is a non-medicinal method that can be used for pain relief and relaxation. Parents and family members were taught the method while the children has supervised play time. then the children re joined the group and the parents practiced what was learned in the class with the kids. All of the kids became relaxed and seemed to really enjoy the Therapeutic Touch.
