Palliative Bodywork Training- TBD 

If you are a caregiver or a practicing massage therapist interested in discovering the art of using touch to help sooth the body, mind and spirit of those faced with serious illness, consider training with me. Training can be offered on a one-on- one basis or classroom setting. Training includes educational materials, lectures and hands-on training. 

Building a trusting relationship sometimes takes a couple of calls or encounters. I understand that navigating the end of life landscape can be overwhelming and exhausting. For that reason, I will help you and your loved one create a clear yet fluid blueprint or plan of care for your loved one.

Together we will set goals for yours and your loved ones care and comfort. And we will evaluate and reassess them as needed.

The plan of care created with your doula is based on a holistic approach including the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your journey.
