Welcome to the online access page to Gigi Decker's "Maintaining Touch" newsletters. I try to do a newsletter three to four times per year, and the articles are often inspired by my clients, their questions, their issues, and my continuing education.  I love to learn, and I love to share knowledge, so I hope you will enjoy this assembly of information (and learn something too!).

 
Below you can click to view or download a PDF of my newsletters. You can also do a search of my site (see upper right hand corner) for keywords to see if there's an article containing your keyword.
 
My most recent newsletter can be seen by clicking HERE.
 
Is there an article you remember but don't see here?  Email me (gigi@asensitivetouch.com) to send in a request!
