Integrated Therapies

Massage Therapy

Our massage program was developed out of research showing that positive emotions and expectations can help the body heal.

Our integrated therapies, (Massage, Aromatherapy, Therapeutic Touch and Guided Imagery), can help you cope with emotions and discomfort, such as anxiety, insomnia, nausea, various aches, pain,and headaches. By use of these therapies, you can achieve a more relaxed, calm and empowered state that is optimal for healing.

When the need arises for you or someone you care for to make use of our facilities, skills and training, you will have the opportunity to receive a free 15-minute massage.

Upon receiving a request from a patient, the nurse or physician will assess if massage therapy is appropriate in light of the condition that is being treated. When approved, an entry will be made on the patient's orders and, according to availability, a therapist will come to the patient's room to provide massage.
