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.
"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."
"Can you come back and play with my feet again?"
"Patients continue to tell me that their experiences with the Healwell therapists make them feel like a human being again."
"In just this 20 minutes you have opened a window to such profound healing. Thank you."
"You are the first person who has touched me in months."
"It was a great pleasure to meet Noi for the first time today. She understood to work with my body aches with great sensitivity and I still feel much better after several hours. I have hope again that I don’t have to live with pain all the time."
"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."
