Massage therapy is a discipline. Massage therapy is most effective when provided by skilled practitioners working from a body of knowledge, not limited by specific modality.
Integrative, not alternative. Massage therapy does not replace surgery or medication, but combined with mainstream care, massage therapy can facilitate a new level of healing.
Exceptional care takes exceptional practitioners. Highly-trained, compassionate professionals who understand the limits and benefits of massage therapy and have the tools to collaborate can change the experience of illness.
The time is now. Massage therapy is an essential piece to the epidemic of poorly managed pain in today’s world.
Healwell partners with hospitals and other healthcare facilities to provide meaningfully integrated massage therapy. Our team of specially-trained massage therapists collaborate in care supporting patients at hospitals throughout the DC metro area.
Healwell collaborates with hospitals and other healthcare facilities to create and conduct research about the feasibility and effect of massage therapy on people living with illness.
In addition to direct partnership with hospitals and other healthcare facilities, Healwell provides fee-for-service inpatient and outpatient massage therapy throughout the Washington, DC metro area. Healwell changes the way it feels to live with acute, chronic, and serious illness by providing clinically exceptional and compassionate massage therapy in hospitals and other care settings. And now we’re bringing this care directly to you in your home.
