    Massage Therapy










    You out not to cure the eyes with-

    out the head, or the head without

    the body. So, neither ought you

    attempt to cure the body withoutthe soul and this is the reason

    why the cure of so many diseases

    is unknown to the physicians of

    Hellas, for the part can never

    be well unless the whole is well.


    Now recognized as an integral part

    of modern medicine, massage is one

    of the oldest of the Healing Arts used

    for thousands of years in many cul-tures to heal, soothe and relieve pain.

    Medical centers, hospitals and clin-

    ics are seeing an increasing demand

    for massage therapy and are offer-

    ing massage as part of their services.

    Franciscan Skemp Healthcare in-

    cludes massage therapy as part of its

    integrative therapy options. Our mas-

    sage therapists are well-trained pro-

    fessionals who have met high educa-

    tional standards and are Wisconsin

    certied in a variety of techniques.

    cy and labor support, infant massage

    instruction and massage for cancer.

    What is Massage Therapy?Massage Therapy is the use

    of skilled, hands-on techniques from

    a variety of disciplines with roots in

    both Eastern and Western cultures. It

    involves the practice of kneading ormanipulating muscles or soft tissue

    with the intent of increasing circulation,

    reducing physical and emotional stress

    and facilitating general wellness.

    and postpartum, PMS

    Pregnancy and Labor Support

    Massage is a great way to ease the dis-

    comforts that can be part of pregnancy

    as your body changes through each tri-

    mester. During labor and birth it can as-sist with relaxing between contractions,

    easing muscle tension and spasms and

    provides emotional support and nur-

    turance through the birth experience.

    In the weeks following delivery

    massage can help you deal with the

    many changes and transitions that

    come with welcoming a new member

    to your family. The massage thera-

    pists can also teach you how to mas-

    sage your baby. This can be a wonder-

    ful time of bonding with your newborn

    as well as the many benets your baby

    will receive from massage therapy.

    fers a number of specially priced

    vices for pregnancy; labor sup-

    port and infant massage instruction.Gift certicates are also available.

    Specialty Massage Services Massage and CancerIf you are experiencing the

    challenges of a cancer diagnosis massage

    therapy can help. Research shows

    massage can reduce nausea, fatigue

    and insomnia during chemotherapy and

    speeds recovery of tissues affected bysurgery or radiation. While massage

    cannot cure cancer, it may offer much

    needed relief, enhance quality of life

    and assist in your recovery. As you

    focus on the pleasant sensation of

    caring touch, stress and anxiety loosen

    their grip allowing pain to recede into

    the background. Massage Therapy as

    an integrated part of cancer care can

    enhance healing of body, mind and spirit.
