Children must be cared for in mind, body, and spirit.
Although children must have quality medical care and intervention, complementary and integrative therapies can offer important choices for relief of pain and stress, soothing of mind and spirit, and tools for self-care.
Children with special medical needs become empowered as they learn ways to cope with and minimize their suffering. Integrative Touch for Kids gives children the tools they need to feel whole, even when they are experiencing significant health challenges.
Community connections are important. Kids need other kids. ITK connects children with and without special medical needs to one another to dissolve barriers and address the fear and social stigma that often surrounds children with special medical needs due to lack of awareness, knowledge and experience. ITK’s Healing Programs teach kids of all ages and abilities how to interact and engage with one another in meaningful ways that are beneficial to everyone in our community.
