Non Traditional Support

Healing Touch and Reiki

Therapeutic Touch and Reiki are offered by Volunteers with specialized training in those approaches. This may facilitate relaxation for individuals experiencing anxiety or related distress, and may be provided in the hospital, other care facilities, or in their own home.

Music for Healing

Music can be a gentle addition to other types of support, and pleasant way to alleviate the experience of pain, nausea and other physical discomforts. The Music for Healing program is available for Hospice clients and their families, health care workers, volunteers and caregivers.
