http://njmassage.info/ - Massage can provide comfort and relaxation after life, which may be a time of increased anxiety and fear for all those making the transition and for their families. Hospice is really a term that refers back to the palliative proper care of patients who are nearing death. Palliative care will not try to cure a disorder, rather, it strives to supply comfort and support to the dying, and treatments like massage are focused on making the transition more comfortable for the individual.

Limited research has been conducted on the benefits of therapeutic massage for the dying, but the available data points to a quantifiable improvement in several important areas. Many recipients of end of life massage have demonstrated a good response to the therapy, such as a reduction in emotional distress, anxiety, physical discomfort, pain and nausea. Although more research is necessary to establish the advantage of providing massage therapy at the end of life, informal discussions with practitioners support the opinion that therapeutic massage provides increased relaxation and comforts the recipient both physically and emotionally.
