The Red Cross’s Hand, Arm and Shoulder massage service was established in 1959 and helps individuals in stressful situations and times of personal crisis by offering one to one time to listen and talk as well as promoting well-being through gentle massage (through the clothes).

The Hand, Arm and Shoulder Massage scheme (HASM), is fully accredited by the Royal College of Nursing. It is currently delivered by trained Red Cross volunteers within 14 sites across London, in a wide range of settings, including community halls; hospital wards; care homes; and GP surgeries; as well as at the scene of major disasters.

At times of personal crisis and in stressful situations – like for those who may be bereaved, isolated, stressed, caring for a sick relative or facing health problems – a gentle massage can go a long way in helping someone who is feeling very vulnerable to cope with their situation. Hospitals and health centres can create anxiety and stress for carers, and by promoting a sense of well-being and relaxation through the therapy of hand, neck and shoulder massage, and our volunteers can assist in stress and even pain relief.

Their HASM services are coordinated by Eve Stamate. She manages our clinics and ensures volunteers are compliant with our training and DBS requirements. You can contact her with any questions:  EStamate@redcross.org.uk / 07908 768133
