Mayo Clinic Caring Hands Volunteer Program

Gustavus has an exclusive partnership with the Mayo Clinic in Mankato to offer pre-health students the opportunity to serve as a Caring Hands volunteer. 

Caring Hands Service Summary: Massage therapy has shown to aid in addressing pain, distress, fatigue, anxiety, stress and muscular discomfort in patients with various types of disease. Hand massage is simple, comforting and less time consuming than a standard massage session. Because of its shorter duration, hand massage is an ideal intervention in a busy hospital and clinical settings. Volunteers provide 10 -15 minute hand massages. The Gustavus Caring Hands volunteers provides a non-therapeutic, light, gentle and slow hand massage to patients, caregivers and/or family members.
