BENEFITING: INTEGRATIVE TOUCH FOR KIDS
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2015
ITK Healing Retreats are educational and experiential and serve as a catalyst for change and new possibilities for everyone involved. Children with special medical needs, their primary caregivers, and siblings experience integrative healing services, participate in support groups throughout the week, while also connecting with each other and other families. Junior and General Volunteers learn how to engage and interact appropriately with families with kids with special needs.
Children and families benefit from complementary and integrative therapies to support conventional medical approaches. Therapies such as massage, meditation, acupuncture and others are beneficial in the management of stress, anxiety, and pain, and support healing for the mind, body and spirit. A network of support is created through the creation of community.
