Massage therapy can help improve the quality of life for those in hospice and palliative care. We partner with local hospice organizations to provide this service for hospice patients throughout Latah County. The Joint Commission has endorsed physical modalities, including massage therapy, as an alternative to opioids and other pain medications.

An increasing number of insurance companies are recognizing the benefits of massage therapy, offering coverage for massage therapy services.
