Dr. Nick interviews Bonnie Blain & Gail Oakley in regards to a gentle healing approach in Muskoka called Therapeutic Touch. Therapeutic Touch was developed by a nurse in 1972 and is used by health professionals, holistic practitioners, therapists, counsellors, clergy, educators and private individuals in hospitals, hospices and palliative care units. Now, with a base of continuing research, Therapeutic Touch is taught and practised throughout the world, including numerous universities and colleges in Canada and the United States. It is accepted in the policies and procedures of an increasing number of health care institutions worldwide and as an intervention in a number of Ontario hospitals.
Gail & Bonnie provide TT in nursing homes around Muskoka and are available for private sessions as well.
