The HEARTS process – the effortless road to calm and relaxation
HEARTS is an acronym for ‘Hands on, empathy, aroma, relaxation textures, sound.’
HEARTS always involves physical touch and empathy and the benefits to relaxation rely largely on the engagement of the client and the intuition of the therapist.
The HEARTS process can be used in a variety of combinations for people who are anxious, unable to sleep or in pain. HEARTS was designed to be used where conventional massage techniques were inappropriate.
I offer the HEARTS process for patients in hospice situations and it can also be used alongside traditional massage treatments for clients suffering stress and anxiety.
