“We use a lot of reflexology and healing touch,” said Hartman, co-founder and coordinator of Holy Redeemer’s complementary therapy program.

Reflexology involves massage of the hands or feet that puts pressure on nerve endings to create a relaxed state, she said. Healing touch, in which the provider gently places their hands slightly above or on the fully clothed patient, is an energy-based therapy and holistic nursing practice that “creates a peaceful detached contemplative state — really deep relaxation.”

Leader of the National Council of Hospice and Palliative Professionals Allied Therapy Section of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, Hartman has more than 23 years’ experience in the hospice field.

Fear, worry and stress — byproducts of a life-threatening illness — can manifest themselves physiologically as anxiety, difficulty breathing and nausea. While traditional health care practices are used to treat the illness, complementary therapies including reflexology, massage, healing touch, bedside harp and aromatherapy can bring patients and their caregivers a sense of peace.

To measure the effect of the complementary therapies, “we look for nonverbal signs of stress and tension and at the end [of a therapy session] we see some relaxation and if they are able to speak to me they will verbally say it’s a great relief,” Hartman said. Studies are also being done to determine the efficacy of the therapies by measuring the amount of cortisol and adrenalin — stress hormones — in the blood stream, she said.
