What is Hospice Massage Therapy?

The right touch at the right moment can be far more effective than words in acknowledging a person's suffering, and offering comfort and support. Using a series of therapeutic touches and strokes, Hopsice Massage Therapy is used at First Choice Hospice of Utah to comfort many patients on our program and their caregivers by reducing stress, anxiety, and pain. Each Hospice Massage Therapy visit is tailored to the needs of the patient at the time of the visit.
