End of Life Care Offers:
As human being, we don't know when and how we will die. We are suddenly forced to be with aging, illness, dying or death in many ways. We understand intellectually that we will go through this process sooner or later. Yet, it is one of the most challenging experiences of our lives. You may be going through this now, or you may know someone who is in the middle of being with terminal illness or who is dealing with existential crisis or terminal agitation. You want to support them, but don't know what you can do. I offer guidance and support for these challenges in the following ways:
Stillness Touch / Biodynamic Cranial touch:
A gentle touch modality to ease existential crisis and terminal agitation. I have supported the vigil process providing stillness touch. It will ease the pain and soften the fear of the dying process. This could be done at a home visit or facility visit setting as per request. Home visits will be charged an additional $20 for travel.
