Responses to COMPASSIONATE TOUCH
for Those in Later Life Stages sessions

I never had a massage before! It was so relaxing.

After his massage sessions with Dawn, my husband has a reduced amount of pain and is able to relax for several hours without medication.

COMPASSIONATE TOUCH for Those in Later Life Stages fulfills requirements for bedside programming and addresses not only certain physical problems but the psychosocial and emotional needs of our residents.

The relaxation I feel during and after our Wednesday morning sessions stays with me for the rest of the day.
