“Everflowing touch is a tremendous uplifting feeling. It’s the body, mind and spirit revitalized. Everflowing touch has made me feel like a whole person again.” — Janice, Hospice Client
"Irene Smith’s work represents a significant contribution to healing. By integrating an understanding of the pathology of disease, old age and trauma into the skill set of massage therapists, the greater benefits of human touch and contact – without which healing is at least limited or inhibited – are restored to the medical field." — Harold Finkleman, researcher; lecturer; member of the Board of Governors, International Council of Integrative Medicine.
