Sustaining Care

About Sustaining Care

Sustaining Care provides private, attentive, affordable massage and bodywork to lower income frontline community service workers and social change activists.
When you work in the streets, shelters, foster care, rehab, prisons, clinics – the list goes on – you hear and witness the hardest stories of people’s lives.

If you spend your hours trying to heal the damage of poverty, violence, isolation, and oppression, you care. You care deeply. It’s hard not to carry the stories of others with you, in your bodies as well as in your minds and hearts.

Sustaining Care is a network of bodyworkers, massage therapists, and other holistic providers who highly value the work that you do. We have realized that we can best support that work by supporting you.
