• We make massage therapy matter.

    Healwell is raising the bar for massage therapy’s role in the future of how humans will care for humans.  Exceptional, meaningfully-integrated massage therapy provided by uncommonly compassionate and skilled massage therapists is a rare thing in today’s hospitals and clinics.  Healwell is changing that…one therapist, one clinician, one patient at a time.

Education

Healwell’s massage therapy instructors travel across the United States (and to Australia) to provide uniquely focused, clinically accurate, and professionally challenging training courses to practicing massage therapists in hospitals, at cancer centers, and a variety of other venues. Our training programs prepare therapists to work with medically compromised people in a safe and effective way and help grow the national network of massage practitioners who can bring this important work to communities across the country and around the globe.

Research

Healwell works in partnership with healthcare providers and facilities to demonstrate the ability of hands-on integrative therapies to measurably improve outcomes for patients through clinically sound, replicable methods.  We are measuring the effect of massage therapy on the pediatric and adult experience of cancer treatment as well as that of hospitalization for a variety of other serious and life-limiting diseases.
