Mission Statement

MISSION

To change the way people experience health and healing through a unique Whole child, Whole family, Whole Community wellness model.

VISION

To break down social barriers and engage communities in support of families struggling with special medical needs, improving the quality of life for all.

PURPOSE

ITK’S purpose is to enhance well being, minimize suffering and facilitate healing for families with children with developmental disabilities, genetic conditions, cancers, and other chronic, acute and life limiting illnesses and the greater community.

VALUES

To love, listen, nurture, support, respect, empower, serve, and educate

Integrative Touch for Kids recognizes when a child has special needs, a family has special needs. We care for the whole family by providing healing retreats, therapeutic services and on-going education in integrative medical therapies that can be implemented in the day-to-day lives of families. Our model supports the needs of the child, their siblings and primary caregivers. We believe that whole-child, whole family services should be available regardless of economic background and we strive to increase access to therapies that would otherwise be unattainable.

To study and develop the use of integrative medicine and our unique model of care, Integrative Touch for Kids engages in scientific research through collaboration with academic and medical institutions. We work directly with medical providers, pediatric hospitals, hospices, practitioners and families' home communities to provide consultation, education, resources and support.

Description

Integrative Touch for Kids™ is working to revolutionize the way we think about health and wellness for children and families. We work with children with special health needs and their families to create healing experiences and to create integrated communities. Integrative Touch for Kids directly supports children, families, and communities and collaboratively supports pediatric facilities that serve children with special health needs nationally and internationally. We provide programs and services, research support, training, education, information, evaluation and consultation.

Integrative Touch for Kids is committed to creating a state of the art Healing Retreat Center that will offer the best available healing therapies from around the world in a safe and nurturing environment where children with special health needs and their families can come to rest, rejuvenate and heal. Integrative Touch for Kids broadly defines special needs to include children with genetic conditions, developmental disabilities, cancers, and other chronic and life limiting illnesses.

The intention is to provide families with a healing program that utilizes a "whole systems" approach that supports each family member's physical, emotional and spiritual needs including family dynamics and interpersonal relationships.

This unique Whole Child, Whole Family, Whole Community Philosophy is what sets Integrative Touch for Kids apart from other programs available to children.
