 On May 12, 2011 twelve staff members, seen in the photo attached, from Southington Care Centerís Rehabilitation Department completed their 12-week training in the ancient healing art of Therapeutic Touch.   As of that date, Southington Care Center will have 32 trained Therapeutic Touch practitioners within the facility including: nurses, CNAs, recreation therapists, physical therapists, occupational

therapists, physical therapy aides and occupational therapy aides. The training is provided by Ann Minor, RN-BC, HN-BC, CHPN, QTTT Ė Southington Care Centerís Holistic Nurse.  Therapeutic Touch is offered to residents at Southington Care as a complementary therapy to relieve pain; decrease anxiety; facilitate healing; and provide comfort in the dying process.  Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary interpretation of several ancient healing practices.  Healers in many cultures focus on the concept of a vital energy, or life force, within each human being that must be kept in balance to maintain health and well being.  After a Therapeutic Touch treatment many residents experience profound relaxation and deep feelings of peace.
