Blessing Hospice and Palliative Care has added massage therapy as one of its end-of-life care services.

Jeri Conboy, Blessing Hospice and Palliative Care director, feels the new service will be popular with and beneficial to patients.

“The goal of hospice care is to relieve pain and symptoms of a terminal illness to allow patients to enjoy the highest quality of life possible with their loved ones,” Conboy said … “”(Massage therapy) will be another important option we can provide in our effort to help patients add life to their days,” she said.
