"Our consultation was of great value to me. I went into my first hospice massage confident of my skills and prepared with the necessary tools. The gift that consulting with you gave me was that I just needed to show up and not worry about carting around any accessory that I thought necessary for a successful massage. The massage was a success by being there, fully present for another.

Thank you for answering all of my questions and concerns Irene. Your guidance has made me a better massage therapist." — Mary Kate May, Massage Therapist
