                                            Wellness Gathering information


A few generous businesses in the Rochester area have given HTI use of their facilities for a limited time each month so we can offer massage, as well as samples of other supportive therapies, to our clients.

Each location is being chosen for…well…it’s location. The plan is to have a few convenient options for the suburbs and one in the city when all locations have been decided. The locations are already functioning as wellness centers and have beautiful treatment rooms and other amenities. ROC City Wellness at 1598 Penfield Road is our first location and Saint Joseph’s Neighborhood Center at 417 South Avenue is the second. More information regarding times, dates, locations, massage therapists, and how to schedule click here.


Do you have expired massage vouchers?

For HTI clients who have vouchers that expired while we were restructuring our program we have extended the expiration dates 6 months.

Each Wellness Gathering will have another therapeutic activity taking place that anyone with cancer can sample for free or very low cost.

Our clients say it best…

When the cumulative effects of chemotherapy began to cause bone pain serious enough to require painkillers in order to continue working, I found the HTI program. My massage therapist gave me moments of true relief from the pain. I am most grateful to HTI for this gift. Thank you!”

Without the support of our donors, event sponsors, independent fundraisers and the open hearts of our massage providers who have agreed to serve HTI clients for a much reduced fee we would not be able have the Oncology Massage Voucher Program.
