• We improve the quality of life

    Healwell recognizes each patient as a whole being as it extends the range of healing and care available to patients with serious and life-limiting conditions.  We use massage therapy to go beyond addressing symptoms.  Our practitioners and their skillful hands reduce anxiety, restore a sense of connection, and improve the overall experience of disease and treatment.


Healwell changes the way it feels to live with acute, chronic, and terminal illness by providing clinically exceptional and compassionate massage therapy in hospitals and other care settings. Our team of massage therapists provides specifically adapted and supportive massage therapy to children living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses as well as with adults who are living with serious illnesses in acute and long-term care facilities.

Healwell provides over 1000 hours of massage annually at the facilities it serves.

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.

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.
