Touch and Massage for the Family
The healing powers of touch for people in crisis—whether emotionally or physically—has been evidenced by countless studies. The Arizona based nonprofit, Integrative Touch for Kids (ITK), along with Banner Children’s Hospital in Tucson, Arizona, is dedicated to an integrative approach to healing, which includes massage therapy as its cornerstone.
Families experiencing a medical condition like cancer, autism or cerebral palsy can receive therapeutic care through ITK. Massage therapy has shown to bestow life-changing transformation in many of these patients. As more hospitals begin to incorporate integrative healing, massage therapists are finding more opportunities than ever. Today, trained massage therapists practice in a huge range of settings. These include private practice, hospitals, doctors’ offices, chiropractic offices, sports centers, and more.
