HKOMSC combines education, research, and service to improve quality of life for people affected by acute, chronic, and serious illness. We touch humans to reduce their pain, ease their anxiety and introduce comfort into the experience of illness.
HKOMSC provides massage therapy to pediatric and adult oncology patients and others affected by serious and life-limiting conditions in many different clinical settings. We work in direct partnership with the medical teams at these facilities, focusing on decreasing pain, managing symptoms and bringing greater comfort to people living with advanced disease and those at the end of life.
