Compassionate Touch through Massage
Wednesday, February 20th at 6:30 PM
Touch is our common language. Through holding, comforting, stroking—one can heal or reassure, relieve pain, or soothe away tension. Above all, touch conveys the fact that we care and tells us we are not alone. Especially during times of transition—loss, divorce, illness, aging, moving, retiring or other life changing circumstances—learning to be fully present through touch can sometimes be the very best medicine. In this library session, licensed massage therapist Cathie Malach will share some of what she’s learned about lending a healing hand both to ourselves and loved ones—through discussion and experiential exercises.
Cathie Malach has practiced massage therapy for over 30 years, supporting her clients in creating a lifestyle of self-care. She’s also worked extensively with the elderly, terminally ill, and those dealing with chronic pain, emotional trauma or stress. Cathie recently relocated to Greencastle where she maintains a private practice and also continues her work as pianist and composer.
