Irene Smith, a certified massage practitioner since 1974 introduced massage into hospice care on the west coast in 1982 and has pioneered the service world-wide.

In 2001, Irene founded and currently directs Everflowing, an educational outreach program dedicated to teaching mindful touching, as an integral component to end of life care.

As a respected author and educator, Irene’s work has been honored by the somatic and health care communities as an outstanding contribution to community well- being. She was the first National AIDS Memorial Grove’s inductee for AIDS service and in 2014 she was the first Lifetime achievement award recipient from the World Massage Festival.

Irene served as a West Coast assistant for over 10 years to her teacher, the late pioneering thanatologist, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, MD. She currently serves on the Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Foundation Advisory Council.

She holds a CAMTC state license, a member of the NAMT, the Hospice Volunteer Association and the San Francisco Bay Area End of Life Coalition.

Irene brings remarkable depth, wisdom, and therapeutic presence to her work.
