t was at one time, a standard of practice in nursing to provide patients with the comforts of massage. This allowed nurses time with the patient, satisfying the need for touch and allowing the patient the ability to heal themselves. Unfortunately with all increase in technology, the need for extra charting for fear of lawsuits and a nursing shortage, this has led massage to fall to the wayside and is no longer a part of our nursing curriculum or daily patient care.
