Integrative Touch for Kids. We’ve supported and followed Shay Beider and her ITK team for a few years now. But what happens when there’s a highly-contagious and deadly virus spreading throughout the region? Socially-distanced touching? Well, sort of. It’s all about “Telehealth” and figuring out how to meet the needs of our community during COVID-19 and beyond. Innovative Touch for Kids.

Katie Frazee approached human health from the inside out. She analyzed skeletal remains while obtaining a Masters of Science in Biological and Forensic Anthropology. Her National Institute of Justice research helped identify modern trends in pediatric growth and development. After severely fracturing multiple bones and investigating more regenerative mechanisms of the body, Katie became a Licensed Massage Therapist. She holds various Healing Arts certifications in support of mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual resilience. Katie recognized the value of human touch on everything from our cells to our society, so she aligned her volunteerism with organizations exploring healing and innovative systems improvement. Katie quickly became dedicated to the pioneering work of non-profit Integrative Touch for Kids (ITK). She is now the Program Director for ITK. Katie truly enjoys designing and delivering team-based, family wellness services that “meet suffering with love” in pediatric hospital, community, and home settings.
