Abstract: This article reviews recent research on the use of massage and aromatherapy massage in palliative care and comments on their credibility and implications, thereby addressing nursing science. The art of nursing is explored through four case histories where massage was used intuitively when words were difficult or seemed inadequate. To conclude, by focusing on the therapies provided by a UK hospice, there is consideration of the practicalities of implementing massage and aromatherapy massage in a specialist palliative care unit.
