Farewell to our dear Friend, Teacher and Mentor: Elaine Calenda

We want to share that our dear friend Elaine Calenda has passed away. We will always remember her as an extraordinary person who gave a lot to our wonderful field of Massage Therapy.

I give you this one thought to keep –
I am with you still – I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone –
I am with you still in each new dawn.

 Thank you for sharing the last part of your journey with us.  Dawn & Jorge

Episode 31 – Oncology Massage with Lauren Muser Cates, NCTMB

Lauren Muser Cates is an educator and massage therapist based in the Washington, DC area. She is a graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute and Metta Institute’s End of Life Care Practitioner Program. Lauren is currently serving as the president of the Society for Oncology Massage and is co-founder of Healwell, a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve quality of life for people living with acute, chronic and terminal illness through hands-on integrative therapies, education and research.

She offers a variety of oncology massage and end of life CE courses as well as a 9-day hospital-based training course at her home hospital in Arlington, VA. Lauren’s passion is preparing massage therapists with the skills and information they need to work safely while also working from a place of true service and heart. She is working to ensure that
greater integration and acceptance of massage therapy in the larger medical field does not result in a sterilization of the therapeutic relationship and a loss of the intangibles of good listening, practitioner presence and good old fashioned love. She believes that all massage therapists should have at least basic training in oncology massage and that awareness around end of life issues has been integral in her own growth and path.

She is a licensed massage therapist in Washington, DC, certified in Virginia, a credentialed member of the medical staff at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, VA and an 8-year hospice volunteer.
