Healwell partners with hospitals and other health care facilities to provide meaningfully integrated massage therapy and to conduct research about the feasibility and effect of massage therapy on people living with illness.
Our team of specially-trained massage therapists collaborate in care supporting patients at hospitals throughout the DC metro area.
"Healwell massage therapists bring joy and relaxation to our hospice patients through their touch and presence. Many say that the therapy brings them hours of blissful sleep that they have not experienced for many months."
"Patients continue to tell me that their experiences with the Healwell therapists make them feel like a human being again."
"For many of our patients at Children’s National, massage is one of the few redeeming aspects of having to be admitted to the hospital."
"I can't believe how massage takes away my pain. If I hit the lottery I would buy massage for everyone on this floor. I mean it. It works."
The night my daughter received massage therapy was the first night in months when she didn't cry herself to sleep.
"In just this 20 minutes you have opened a window to such profound healing. Thank you."
"Your hands are magic. I feel you taking what's wrong out of my body and sending it away."
"You are the first person who has touched me in months."
