The Aloe Foundation, a unique resource within the Austin community, provides healing, holistic care to individuals affected by illness or trauma. Our treatments help heal, both physically and emotionally, some of the most at-need individuals in our community, by reducing pain, decreasing stress, and promoting wellness. We are proud to serve and treat individuals through our partnerships with SAFE, Lifeworks, Ronald McDonald House, the Breast Cancer Resource Center and service men and women at Camp Mabry.

HOW WE WORK: Healing Hands

Once a month, we visit our partner organizations and host free wellness events for those who are in desperate need of relief from pain and stress. Through treatments such as massage therapy, acupuncture, energetic work, and guided meditation, our therapists make an immediate, meaningful difference in the lives of so many. In our work, we may find ourselves treating women in the emergency shelter at Safe who have never experienced a gentle touch, a parent at Dell Children’s Hospital coping with a dying or sick child, or someone trying to manage symptoms from their cancer treatment. No other non-profit organization in the Austin area provides this type of integrative holistic care addressing trauma or augmenting traditional medical treatments. Witnessing these transformative benefits is truly amazing and we are honored to bring comfort and care to these who need it most.

THE RESULTS: Effective & Immediate

It is remarkable to see how we can affect someone’s life in such a positive way. For those dealing with illness or trauma, the Aloe Foundation is a source for gentle, restorative healing, for comfort and connection. It is, quite simply, beautiful, and our clients’ heartfelt words speak directly to the results:

My attitude is so better. Thank you!”
