"This one-day workshop is perfect for hospice volunteers and staff, as well as massage practitioners who work with the sick. Irene's 'hands-on' exercises as well as her sharing of practical and psychological aspects of the dying person are extremely valuable for hospice caregivers." — Jean Tokarek, Volunteer Coordinator, Visiting Nurses and Hospice of San Francisco

"It is crucial that our volunteers are aware of the power and healing properties of touch." — Stan Stone, Maitri AIDS Residential Care and Hospice

This was an in home customized 1 day Touch Awareness and Massage workshop sponsored by It Takes A Village In Home Support Services. We were in the home of one of my massage clients. The intention of this day was to teach sensitive touch and a basic back massage to the caregivers. The caregivers took turns caring for the client so everyone could attend.
