Compassionate Touch®: An Idea Whose Time has Come!

Why Now?

Healthcare today has lost its human touch. For thousands of years the therapeutic use of touch has been known to support healing, relieve pain and provide comfort to people living with the effects of aging or illness. Now you, too, can witness the transformative power of Compassionate Touch®. And the touch will be your own. By reaching out we can rediscover a bit of our own humanity.

This “hands-on” complementary approach has proven effective for individuals in:

  • Eldercare services
  • Alzheimer’s care
  • Hospice and palliative care

Regardless of the kind of caregiver you are--eldercare or hospice professional or massage therapist:

Our training:

  • Empowers you to confidently use touch as a therapeutic tool.
  • Deepens your ability to be a compassionate presence.
  • Provides massage therapists with specialized skills to serve eldercare or hospice.

“The most important innovation in medicine to come in the next ten years: the power of the human hand." Dr. Abraham Verghese (quoted in 2013)



What is Compassionate Touch®?

Compassionate Touch® is an evidence-based approach combining focused touch and sensitive massage with compassionate presence to enhance quality of life for those in later life stages.
