To the Editor: In their response1 to a letter by Dr Schmidt2 received in response to their article,3 Ms Rosa and coauthors state that "Dr Schmidt suggests that our test subjects might not have been sufficiently skilled. That would be impossible to determine because [Therapeutic Touch (TT)] has no accepted standards of training or practice."
