Integrative Touch for Kids (ITK) supports families whose children have any type of special health care or medical need. This includes kids with traumatic stress, cancers, genetic conditions, autism, cerebral palsy, and other serious health issues. We provide wellness education and more than 100 different integrative healing therapies such as massage, sound healing, reflexology, energy, equine, play and music therapies through our many programs. ITK works in both the hospital and community settings to change the way people view healthcare and to empower kids to be "little healers" among us. We engage communities in support of families struggling with special medical needs, improving the quality of life for all. Thanks to the incredible support of our volunteers and contributors, families receive our healing services free of charge.
Our mission is to change the way people experience health and healing through a unique Whole Child, Whole Family, Whole Community wellness model.
We treat the Whole Child in mind, body, heart and spirit. Integrative healing therapies offer empowering choices to relieve pain and stress, soothe mind and spirit, and focus on tools for self-care.
ITK recognizes when a child has special needs a family has special needs. We treat the Whole Family by focusing on children with special needs, their siblings, parents, and other primary caregivers.
Our healing programs model a community of acceptance that recognizes everyone's unique gifts. We believe the entire community benefits from the full integration of children with special needs and their families.
