Therapeutic Touch Course for Carers
This is a practical one day course primarily for carers of the elderly or anyone interested in the therapeutic power of touch.
This programme is designed to help you understand more about how to give healing touch to promote a sense of happiness and wellbeing, whilst also deepening the connection between you and the other person..
During this course you will learn patient-centred, soothing ways of touching (including a wonderful hand massage).
Subjects that we will cover include:
Theory about the importance and significance of touch
How and why touch affects our bodies, and promotes a sense of wellbeing
How to give gentle soothing touch
A beautiful hand massage
Comfort touch for the very ill
How touch/massage can be adapted to the unique needs of your clientele
Whether it is a public course or a course for your organisation, either way the content will be tailored to suit the needs of the particular carers. I teach both individually or in small groups from my home in East Sussex or I travel and teach in various care homes settings.
‘People will forget what you said
People will forget what you did
But people will never forget how you made them feel’.
Courses are run from my home, in the community or in care homes
