To the Manager of the Human Resources Department:

and/or

To the Benefits Review Committee:

Date: ______________________________________

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.

Sincerely,

Sujet : Propositon pour le plan d’assurance collective

En tant qu’employé(e) et membre contribuant au plan d’assurance de soins de santé

collective, je souhaite par le biais de cette lettre que vous considéreriez rehausser le

plan d’assurance pour l’ensemble des membres.

Le Toucher Thérapeutique est une thérapie holistique, non invasive et fondée sur des

preuves qui stimule les processus de guérison du corps. Originalement, cette formation

était offerte aux infirmières et en 1975 est devenue un partie intrinsèque du cours de

maîtrise à NYU. Beaucoup de recherche a été effectuée face à cette pratique qui est

acceptée dans plusieurs pays. Au Canada, il y a 6 réseaux provinciaux/régionaux de

toucher thérapeutique et une organisation nationale à but non-lucratif, Réseau du

Toucher Thérapeutique du Canada (RTTC). Je vous présente cette information afin que

vous puissiez prendre en considération la possibilité d’intégrer cette thérapie digne d’intérêt

dans notre plan d’assurance.

J’aimerais pouvoir profiter du toucher thérapeutique comme moyen bénéfique et efficace

pour adresser mes préoccupations de santé tout en maintenant et améliorant mon

état de santé générale.

Cette proposition est avantageuse pour l’employeur et le fournisseur d’assurance. Le

Toucher Thérapeutique offre des approches thérapeutiques et préventives qui sont

rentables et qui permettent de réduire les coûts des soins de santé. Une main d’oeuvre

en meilleure santé équivaut à une diminution d’absentéisme qui peut être dû à certaines

maladies.

Je crois fortement que les praticiens en Toucher Thérapeutique devraient être inclus

dans les fournisseurs de soins de santé avec notre compagnie d’assurance. Ils offrent

une thérapie de qualité, abordable et bénéfique à tous.

Merci de prendre en considération cette proposition.

Bien à vous,
