Care Through Touch Institute



Our Mission

The mission of the Care Through Touch Institute (CTI) is to care for and educate poor and marginalized people through massage therapy and holistic health practices that transform body, mind and spirit.

  • We provide care through touch to those deemed “untouchable” by society.
  • We create training opportunities for people who wish to be in solidarity with oppressed and poor people in caring and empowering ways.
  • We nurture a spirit of hope and self-respect within poor and homeless individuals.
  • We nurture a spirit of caring within members of marginalized communities.
These moments of caring through skilled touch are about much more than physical relief and comfort. It’s about one life connecting with another. It’s a way to stop and say to someone invisible to the rest of the world, ‘I notice you. I see you. You matter.’
