ABOUT:

Massage therapy sessions are typically one-hour sessions. Our massage therapists are licensed in the state of Utah to provide professional hands-on treatment. Robes and other amenities are provided. Sessions are held in the treatment rooms of 57 House (north of the main 59 House). 

Massage therapy is widely recognized for helping to relieve pain (including chronic pain), promote relaxation, and improve mood (links to research below). Massage therapy sessions are hands-on -  the provider presses, kneads and rubs the client's muscles and other soft tissues of the body to help release accumulated tension. 

Various techniques and styles of massage therapy exist, which may include long strokes, kneading, circular movements, and vibrations—characteristic of Swedish massage. Other forms of massage, such as deep tissue massage, may focus on the deepest layers of muscle and soft tissue by using use more firm pressure and slower strokes. *Massage therapy techniques may be tailored to fit the needs of the patient and may vary depending on the expertise and training of the massage therapist.

In recent years, scientific literature has produced evidence of the benefits of massage in greater measure than ever before. Rigorous reviews of dozens of studies have shown results which indicate the effectiveness of massage in relieving pain in cancer patients, especially with surgery-related pain. Massage therapy may also help to relieve other common symptoms or adverse effects, such as nausea, fatigue, stress, anxiety and depression.  *People with cancer should receive approval from their health care provider before receiving deep or intense pressure massage.
