In 2018, we opened the world’s first HIV+ spa and called it Healing House. It was a chance to smash the stigma around skin-to-skin touch, and an opportunity for our HIV+ Healers to connect with patrons in a deeply personal way.
Touch is essential to human health, development and well-being, but it’s a sensation that many people with HIV feel deprived of.
As a global leader in HIV/AIDS care, Casey House created Healing House to smash stigma and shine a light on the healing power of touch.
Healing House has closed its doors, but you can still donate to Casey House and help us #SmashStigma.
