Massage Therapy

Among the many services available to Unity Hospice patients, massage therapy can be included as part of a patient’s individualized plan of care. In addition to being a popular relaxation technique, human touch is one of the most ancient and effective means of pain relief. Massage is an extremely useful non-pharmacological approach to alleviating the pain and discomfort that result from a debilitating illness.

Our certified massage therapists can help to relieve and prevent the onset of…

  • Pain,
  • Emotional stress and anxiety,
  • Fluid retention,
  • Bedsores,
  • Constipation.

Our massage techniques can also help bedridden patients improve blood circulation by massaging areas of the body that have been most recently under pressure.

Our staff will consult with the patient’s physician and caregivers to determine when this therapy will be beneficial as part of their personalized plan of care. This is just one more way that Unity Hospice is dedicated to enhancing the comfort of our patients.
