Instant Relief

Studies have shown that massage therapy performed by well trained, licensed therapists, provides symptomatic relief from many common conditions that occur during hospitalization. 
Massage therapy increases the relaxation response, improves circulation, boosts the range of mobility, relieves pain, accelerates healing, strengthens the immune system, improves the quality of sleep, and provides a reassuring human touch (lowering the risk of anxiety and increasing feelings of comfort). At the Mission Bay and Oakland campuses, the massage program consists of 30-45 minute massages given to patients.

The Results:

Patients reported on average a 62% reduction in tension, 54% reduction in depression, 52% reduction in anxiety, 43% reduction in pain, 38% reduction in fatigue and 31% reduction in nausea.
