End of life massage is just a beautiful gift that a loved one can experience during the process of dying. Making a patient comfortable is so important to help with transition. Our goals are to prevent or relieve suffering as much as possible and to improve quality of life while respecting the dying person’s wishes.

End of life treatment is about maintaining the best quality of life possible for as long as you can. Some people may think of a massage as a simple indulgence, but to some it can be a great tool for overall health and well-being.

Massages are known to ease pain and help with inflammation while soothing stress and anxiety. There are many practical benefits to treating your body to a massage. Because persistent tension on the muscles and skeleton can restrict blood flow and nutrients, the connective tissue in the body get denser, and it causes negative effects on posture and breathing. Partaking in a massage will interrupt these stress-inducing patterns and will help the body to return to its natural state of balance.

Caring for someone within the end-stage of life is a significant responsibility. A lot depends on their particular needs, as these can vary from person to person. It’s important to respect the person’s wishes.
