Therapeutic Touch, a meditative healing practice created by Dolores Krieger and Dora Kunz, is adapted from the 'laying on of hands' for the purpose of helping or healing others. The history of the technique and its influence on the health care system are chronicled in an effort to establish the role Therapeutic Touch has played in transforming people's lives.
