We offer two massage programs.

Massage therapists, professional health care providers, death doulas and somatic practitioners will gain insight and knowledge in this program.

 

An Introduction to Massage in Hospice Care 2-Day Program

This introductory 2-day classroom-training program is designed to provide techniques, skills and personal practices for adapting touch and massage to specialized settings for clients who are dying. These skills and practices will give the practitioner a greater understanding of hospice care, assist with networking as part of a team, gather information for treatment assessment, give a foundational model for achieving physical comfort at the bedside and process the emotional impact of the work. This class will also provide the practitioner with a physical approach to clients in pain that will enhance other care modalities. Approach skills learned in this program may be incorporated into daily nursing care as well as be structured into most bodywork modalities. Click for a full description and to register.
