Depending upon each patient’s individual needs and condition, slow, gentle massage techniques, applied to areas not affected by the patient’s condition, can quite beneficial. Even if there are some limitations on how a hospice patient may received massage therapy, the overall benefits can be quite significant.
Massage can provide immediate relief of discomfort, pain, and anxiety, as well as increase feelings of peace and comfort.
A core value of Compassionate Care Hospice is human connection.
Holistic therapies can be just as, if not more, effective in relieving various forms of pain and discomfort than traditional methods. Arranging these services is as easy as simply asking your hospice team to arrange them for you.
