The aim of our yoga program is to support the whole person in the context of their life. Yoga sessions are lead by a certified yoga therapist who designs the session to meet individual needs interests and abilities. Although yoga sessions vary, most include stretching, strengthening and breathing exercises, relaxation and self-care techniques and meditation instruction. Yoga can be done at the bedside (in-patient or out-patient), in chairs or on a yoga mat. Yoga is a non-invasive therapy that can be enjoyed by anybody.

Massage Therapy

The massage therapy program with QUILT is provided by a licensed massage therapist. Each hands-on session is tailored to the child's age and medical treatment at the time. Sessions can vary from an overall gentle relaxation massage, foot massage with reflexology or a chair massage. Massage has been found to decrease anxiety and stress, relieve pain, improve sleep, and diminish fatigue. The massage service is available in both the inpatient unit and the outpatient clinic and extends to the parents of the patients as well.


Aromatherapy uses essential oils from plants and flowers to help physical and mental well-being. These pleasant-smelling oils, such as lemon, lavender, and chamomile, may be inhaled or gently massaged into the skin. In clinical practice, the use of essential oils has been shown to aid in calming the nervous system, at times reducing stress, pain, nausea and other side effects from conventional drug treatments.  Many people find the scents to be soothing and mood-lifting.


Reiki is a healing practice that promotes balance in mind, body and spirit. It is and looks simple. And Reiki is a safe, painless and non-invasive practice that doesn’t interfere with any medical treatment or drug regime prescribed by your doctor. Reiki is a gentle and powerful tool for healing-and self-healing. You can also learn to practice on yourself, and your family, and friends.
