Executive Director’s Message
But I didn’t need studies to tell me this population would benefit from massage. Massage therapy is a non-invasive, non-medical solution that offers a personal, nurturing environment. Providers of these therapies offer solace, are a source of strength and give their patients ways to replenish their spirit. Another benefit is to the patients’ caregivers, who find an ally in their efforts to comfort their loved ones.
HTI’s goal was to eliminate the obstacles between cancer sufferers and the benefits of massage with specially trained oncology massage therapists. Now people with a recent diagnosis of cancer can receive massage for a little as $10. We have received such affirming feedback from our clients. My favorite quote is, “I had the feeling everyone was afraid to touch me because they might hurt me. The gentle, caring massage helped me to feel better physically and emotionally. It was like a long waited for hug.
Please apply or, if you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer, consider getting them a gift certificate. It will give them calm in the chaos, introduce them to our organization, and benefit HTI at the same time.
