Healing Touch for Babies (HTB) Mission

HTB Mission statement:

To give babies their best start in life, to provide babies with safety and respect from the very beginning, and to empower parents to know their own wisdom and strength.

What is Healing Touch for Babies?

Healing Touch for Babies (HTB) was created by Rita Kluny in January, 2000, to specifically address the needs of a baby from conception, through the birthing process, and infancy, until the age of one year. It includes a combination of techniques adapted from the Healing Touch Program, along with techniques developed by Rita Kluny herself, as a result of decades of experience in Neonatal Intensive Care.

HTB includes hands-on energy healing that enhances intrauterine growth and development when performed on the pregnant mother, for both, because at that point in time, their fields are merged. HTB can deepen a mother's awareness of her baby. Prenatal bonding increases the likelihood of a healthy birth without complications. HTB also includes applications for how to maintain well-being to how to use HTB on a premature baby, or extremely-ill infant.
