Palliative Massage/Wheelchair Massage
Chronic Disease Massage
I trained with Christine Sutherland, RMT of Selkirk College in Nelson. Palliative massage brings comfort, eases pain, soothes fears and relaxes muscles and tension. It can enhance circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems. When we are well we head to the spa and when we are at end of life, I bring the gentle soothing massage to the client. *This can include massage for loved ones and caregivers as an add-on.
I hold your hand, read, be present, help you with your end-of-life wishes, massage, sing, listen.
Advance Care Planning
These may include compiling and writing of family recipes, scrapbooking of photos, creation of digital photobooks, writing family letters and videoing messages/memories. Keepsake projects promote feelings of well-being, appreciation and understanding of life. It also helps with closure and better end of life transitions.
Companioning and/or Hobbies
Frees family to complete commitments while their loved one is supported. If family is further away this may include Skype or Facetiming (used with iPad) with loved ones. (requires recipients contact info and may incur additional cell data fees). Unique outings are a specialty!
