Massage Therapy
Enjoy a relaxing, personal massage by an experienced, certified massage practitioner. Massages are customized to the individual's needs. Massages also are available to Carroll Hospital patients in their hospital room, with a physician's order, based on practitioner availability.

Methods available include:

Cancer and Mastectomy Massage 
Our certified cancer and mastectomy massage therapists provide a welcome, safe massage experience for those who have had a mastectomy or who have cancer. We also offer a lymphedema management program.

Hot Stone Massage 
Hot stone body massage is used to deepen the relaxation of muscle tissue and increase circulation in areas of focus. This gentle but effective method uses thermal application and manipulation of stones to reduce stress and promote well being. 

Infant Massage 
Infants and parents alike can benefit from this participatory therapy. The release of "feel good" hormones during massage offers babies ages three weeks to six months welcome relief from the discomforts of teething, colic, congestion and emotional stress. One or both parents work directly with a certified message therapist to provide the treatment. An introductory one-hour session includes personalized instruction, massage, oil and a resource book. 

Japanese Hot Stone Facial Massage 
Using polished, smooth, round stones, our therapists provide a soothing, 30-minute treatment that stimulates facial tissues and nerves, while increasing blood circulation in the face. This brings added moisture and nutrients to the tissues and promotes cell regeneration for a healthy, glowing complexion. 

Lymph Massage
Using very light circular motions, a massage therapist trained in lymphatic drainage stimulates the lymph system to help it work more efficiently to drain fluid and reduce swelling. This massage is beneficial for people with cancer (with doctor approval), fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and those recovering from a sports injury or surgery, when lymph vessels become overwhelmed with the demand placed on them.

Pregnancy Massage
Our certified massage therapists provide a welcome, safe massage experience during pregnancy.
