In Touch: Massage Therapy

Great Lakes Caring Hospice

In Touch Massage TherapyIn Touch is the massage therapy program implemented by Great Lakes Caring Hospice and supplemented by the In Tune music therapy program. Massage therapy is a therapeutic method of pain relief and symptom management that augments pharmaceutical treatments and often has a significant effect on you, both physically and spiritually.

Massage therapy is performed by a licensed massage therapist who is specially trained in hospice massage methods, which differ from standard types of massage, due to the complex nature of the patient. Most massage therapy performed in hospice settings is provided on a philanthropic basis or supported by grants.
