Medical massage is an effective method of reducing pain, establishing normal tissue tension and can normalize the movement of the musculoskeletal system. Life Center¨ Health and Conditioning Club offers the following medical massages by licensed massage therapists for inpatients at Greenville Memorial Medical Campus or the public:
- Oncology Massage Ð comfort-oriented touch promotes relaxation and helps reduce side effects such as nausea, loss of appetite, constipation, fatigue, and pain.
- Prenatal/Labor/Postnatal Massage Ð conducted by a licensed massage therapist certified in prenatal/postnatal massage, this technique eases the stressful and painful effects of pregnancy and delivery on body posture. Prenatal massage can help decrease low back/hip pain, swelling, anxiety, and depression, as well as promote circulation for efficient delivery of nutrients to the baby. Massage during labor can help the mother relax between contractions and ease muscle pain. Postnatal massage can help lessen post labor muscle soreness and the emotional tension of new motherhood.
