Jayne's Story: Healing Touch as a Complementary Treatment for Trauma Recovery

Burr, Joyce P. MSN, RN, AHN-BC, CHTP

Feature

Healing touch has potential as a complementary therapeutic option for trauma recovery. Healing touch and its predecessor, therapeutic touch, effectively and holistically improve physiologic and psychologic complaints, health perception, and well-being. Support for the incorporation of healing touch therapy in the recovery regime of individuals recuperating from trauma is suggested.
