Abstract

In an attempt to identify the concept of Ki related to touch within the context of caring, and further, to provide specific information that may lead to culturally sensitive nursing intervention for the population who relate the concept of Ki to touch in a caring situation, a qualitative analysis was planned and carried out. Data was collected using interactive interviews with 19 health care professionals, 4 alternative therapists, 10 inpatients, and 13 healthy adults, and analyzed by the latent content analysis. Ki, the interactive energy flow, and touch, the activator of Ki flow, were postulated from six categories of perceived meanings of Ki related to touch.
