About

Massage Therapy and Reiki Volunteers comfort VITAS patients at the end of life--and their families--with relaxing and pain-reducing therapeutic touch and massage.

A dying patient’s sense of isolation from the world around him or her is often made worse by the lack of comforting human touch. Muscles may be contracted and stiff, and all that is needed is for someone to gently rub the shoulders, neck and back. When patients spend their days immobile in a recliner or bed, Massage Therapy and Reiki Volunteers provide compassionate touch, relaxation, a sense of well being, emotional health and a state of balance. And volunteering your professional services to a VITAS patient makes you feel as good as your patient feels.
