"A loved one's death can trigger an increased stress response, resulting in a tense, sore body and high levels of physical, mental, and emotional stress. Grief Massage is an extremely gentle massage experience devoted to providing warmth, comfort, and care for grieving people. Touch can provide a sense of being supported."   -Aimee Joy Taylor

Imagine warm soft lighting and candles. Being enveloped in sheets and blankets, cocooned in comforting materials and textures. Envision a refuge for your physical senses. How soothing could warm hands and gentle massage techniques be?

What if there was a safe and sacred space to simply collapse and rest? A place where being broken-hearted was okay and where no one would try to "fix" your grief?​ How helpful would it be to find such a haven during early grief?
