Touch, Caring & Cancer

November 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

One of the most comforting forms of support you can give a person with cancer is the use of touch.
This free workshop will teach simple touching techniques to provide comfort and help relieve pain and anxiety.
It is a workshop that will both inspire and empower you.

Local expert Catherine Cerulli, M.Ed. will provide detailed instructions in cancer support and oncology massage.

Learn safe and simple techniques anyone can apply, including:

  • safety precautions
  • positioning on home furniture (bed, sofa, chair at kitchen table)
  • frame of mind
  • communication, and
  • simple techniques for the head and face, neck, back and shoulders, hands, and feet.

There will also be instruction in acupressure for pain, anxiety and nausea.

You’ll go home with new skills and a detailed instructional handout that includes all techniques covered in the workshop, as well as additional resources.

Presented by Dragonheart Vermont in collaboration with Copley Hospital.
