Practitioner Referral Form

BCTTNS is pleased to announce that we are establishing a Practitioner Referral Listing.  The purpose of this listing is to enable practitioners to be referred to people who are seeking a Therapeutic Touch Practitioner in their area.

We are inviting practitioners and teachers who are current members in good standing and are interested in providing Therapeutic Touch services in and around their area to complete our Practitioner Referral Form through the website.

Therapeutic Touch Certificate Program

This is a brand new program, taught by Cheryl Larden, at Langara College, Vancouver, which will include all the courses, and more, necessary to receive the BCTTNS Recognized Practitioner Status.

The certificate program includes: Therapeutic Touch Levels 1, 2, and 3, Therapeutic Touch Mentorship, The Art of Self-Compassion, Anatomy and Physiology for Body Workers, and one elective of either Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction or a small business course.

Applying for TTRP or TTRT? Sending in your Maintaining TTRP or TTRT?

Fay Torgerson will be accepting all applications and renewals for TTRP and TTRT and will be coordinating their review. Please send applications to Fay at 5756 172B Street, Surrey, B.C. V3S 4A1 or direct any questions to her at hftorg@gmail.com  or 604-576-8176.

For those sending in their RP applications, please send two complete photocopies of your RP workbook. Our assessors have found it useful to make notes and comments on the workbook, and scanned copies are sometimes difficult to read. Please keep your original, as we wouldn’t want all of your work to be lost in the mail. The review can be a lengthy process. Please allow 8 – 12 weeks.

As always, we are interested in the feedback from our members. If you have any questions or feedback or if you would just like to let us know what you have been doing, please contact Tarja, Education Coordinator. Tarja will be your direct link to the board.
