To the Manager of the Human Resources Department:
To the Benefits Review Committee:
I am currently an employee and also a participating member of our group health insurance plan. I am sending this letter to you with the hope of enhancing our insurance plan benefiting all the members.
Therapeutic Touch® is a holistic, evidence based, non-invasive therapy that stimulates the body’s own healing processes. It was originally taught to student nurses and in 1975 was an intrinsic part of a Master’s Level course at NYU. It has been highly researched and is widely accepted in many countries. In Canada, there are six provincial/regional Therapeutic Touch networks with a national, not-for-profit organization; Therapeutic Touch Network of Canada (TTNC). I am providing you with this information to illustrate it is a very worthwhile therapy that should be considered for coverage under our plan.
I receive Therapeutic Touch therapy as a beneficial and efficient means of addressing my health concerns and maintaining and improving my overall health.
This becomes a twofold issue for the employer and insurance provider. Therapeutic Touch therapy offers both therapeutic and preventative approaches to health care thus offering a cost effective means of helping to reduce ever increasing health care costs. A healthier workforce equates to decreased absenteeism from certain illnesses.
I strongly believe Certified Therapeutic Touch Practitioners should be included as service providers with our insurance company. They offer a quality, affordable and very beneficial therapy for us.
Thank you for giving this request consideration.
