what we do

In partnership with Boston area hospice, non-profit organizations, senior living facilities and religious institutions, we provide complimentary, holistic spa treatments for people in the Boston area who have lost a parent, child, partner or sibling. These treatments transcend the aesthetic by providing the "touch" that has been proven time and time again to ease and speed the recovery process. Services are performed at La Residencia Spa in Newton Upper Falls by aestheticians and massage therapists who have over 50 years of combined experience in touch therapy.

about us

Founder Jane Aransky, M.Ed., MACP, started the Touching the Healing Heart Fund in 2012 after years of seeing first hand how soothing spa treatments can help ease the grieving process. Aransky is a 35+year aesthetician and counselor who created a unique treatment modality that not only improves one's outer beauty, but also one's emotional and spiritual health.

The Touching the Healing Heart Fund is funded by private donations and through upcycling, thanks to our partnership with Causes International. You can support our cause and help us continue our mission by donating your unwanted small and medium consumer electronics. Donate your used smartphones, iPods and much more by mailing them to Causes International or dropping them off at La Residencia Spa. Not only will you help those who have experienced loss, but you'll also keep these items out of landfills, ensuring the health of our future generations.
