Check out the February 2014 issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine. The Heart Touch Project was recognized with the SEAL STAR by Good Housekeeping Magazine for almost twenty years of providing therapeutic touch to Southern California’s must vulnerable populations!
On December 7, 2013, The Heart Touch Project was proud to honor Patrick Callahan with the William Zeltonoga Award for Humanitarian Service. Actress and Heart Touch Spokesperson, Rene Russo, was on hand to present the award.
The William Zeltonoga Award was created to remember our dear friend and Board Member, William Zeltonoga. We miss you, Z.
The next Heart Touch Technique Training is scheduled for February 28th – March 2nd.
The Heart Touch Technique Training empowers participants to use their gift of touch in the most powerful way possible: to help alleviate the pain and isolation of the most ill and isolated individuals in our community.
If you would like to share and nurture your gift of touch, please join us at the next Heart Touch Training. Volunteering is optional and not a requirement to take the training. Upon completion of the training, participants can choose to be assigned to one our partner hospices. Volunteer opportunities are available in the Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernardino County and Ventura County.
The training fee is $250. Financial assistance is available. Twenty continuing education hours available for massage therapists, registered nurses and chaplains.
For more information or to register, please contact the Heart Touch Office at 310-391-2558 extension 105 or by email at email@example.com.
Our next Children’s Program training for this year is scheduled for Friday, May 16-18, 2014. Massage for Pediatric Patients prepares volunteers to provide massage and caring touch to babies and children at our partner hospitals and hospice.
The training examines the unique challenges and opportunities that come with working with children in a hospital or hospice setting. Because children are at various levels of development, participants will explore what this means for the massage therapist. In addition, the training provides an introduction to the essentials for working in a medical environment and to the types of equipment that volunteers may encounter. Additional considerations include issues of pain, volunteer boundaries, and dealing with terminal illnesses.
On Sunday morning participants will meet at a local children’s hospital to tour their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Rehabilitation Services Department.
The Heart Touch Project is proud to announce the inaugural William Zeltonoga Award for Humanitarian Services. Please join us on December 7, 2013, as we present the award to Patrick Callahan for his extraordinary service to the Heart Touch Project.
