As part of our holistic approach to patient care and healing environment, the Center for Women's Health at St.Vincent Fishers Hospital offers massage therapy. Let our certified massage therapists help you relax, relieve your stress, and nurture your mind, body, and spirit. Our massage therapy services include:
Medium to light pressure is applied by long strokes, kneading, and some circular motion to relieve muscle tension due to stress. Provides an overall relaxing sensation.
Slower, deeper pressure is applied to target the deeper layers of connective tissue.
Light-pressure is applied while the patient lies on her side, supported by pillows. The therapist concentrates on targeted areas of soreness indicated by patient—usually lower back, hips and joint pain. Prenatal massage is also good for edema and for mothers suffering from high blood pressure. Mothers in high-risk pregnancies need documentation from their doctor that massage is indicated and approved. Mothers should be through the first trimester before they seek prenatal massage.
Ideal for those suffering from arthritis, joint pain, lack of mobility or depression. Light gentle pressure is applied with lotion. May include some light stretching to encourage flexibility.
