An Introduction to Massage in Hospice Care

FOR: Professional bodyworkers, and health care providers with bodywork experience 

This introductory 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 help the practitioner more fully understand hospice care, network as part of a team, gather information for treatment assessment, achieve 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.
