Healing Touch Hand Massage
Therapeutic massage is well known for its contribution to pain and stress management and for evoking an overall relaxation response. Pain control is often a primary concern for individuals who have progressively debilitating diseases, and massage has long proven useful as a therapy for any condition that includes a stress component.
Healing Touch is a noninvasive technique that uses the hands to clear, energize, and balance energy fields affecting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and healing. It can help reduce pain, anxiety, stress, and restlessness. It can also be supportive during the dying process.
To schedule a Healing Touch session, or to learn more, please contact your Rice Hospice nurse or social worker. This service is at no cost if arranged for by the Rice Hospice team.
