"My closest friend was hospitalized with cancer. I had the very real privilege of being able to provide her with some comfort. I wouldn’t have felt confident had I not taken Compassionate Touch®. Being able to provide a service to a friend enabled me to get past feeling helpless in the face of her disease."
I am a licensed Massage Practioner in Seattle, Washington. My early career included general massage therapy practice and chiropractic clinics. The past five years I have been working full time in a Continuing Care Retirement Community in Seattle on Greenlake. This is the most rewarding work I have ever done. I am involved in the full continuum of care including independent living, assisted Living, memory care, and skilled nursing. I am proud that all residents have access to massage and Compassionate Touch. I also provide services for employees as part of the facility's wellness program. I believe the massage profession is growing in the direction of programs in retirement communities and there is a great need for our skills. We are the ones who make a difference in their days ...... and their moments.
