Welcome to Hands & Hearts in Action

Welcome to the Hands & Hearts in Action: Massage for Veterans initiative. This initiative developed through the collaboration of many organizations and massage therapists who strive to serve Those Who Served. We educate and prepare massage therapists and allied health care partners to serve our nation’s Veterans. We provide compassionate care to Veterans, family members, and caregivers through outreach. We advocate for integrative health and team-based care.

The roots of this initiate were established in Syracuse & Central New York and now extend to therapists and Veterans across the U.S.A. Our program benefits from the contributions and support of Crouse Health, Clear Path for Veterans, the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Upstate Medical University, American Massage Therapy Association NY Chapter, American Massage Therapy Association IL Chapter, and Nicole Miller, M.S., L.M.T. Our participating therapists are located in NY, PA, DE, NH, TN, WI, IL, and CA.
