Canadian Healing Touch Foundation

CHTF Bursaries

The Canadian Healing Touch Foundation's (CHTF) mandate is to provide financial assistance in the form of bursaries to individuals wishing to attend any recognised Healing Touch class in Canada and who need financial assistance.

Individuals who are keen to study Healing Touch but are hesitant to do so because of funding challenges can apply to the CHTF Bursary Award Program.
