Hospital-Based Massage Therapy

Hospital-based massage therapy is skilled, sensitive and compassionate touch performed in a medical environment that promotes the healing process, improves clinical outcomes and decreases the stress of the hospital experience.

In 1998, Bill was the Massage Therapy Coordinator for an Inpatient Pilot Program at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. The results of that program clearly indicated that Massage Therapy helped patients to:

  • Reduce Pain
  • Reduce Anxiety
  • Increase Overall Comfort
  • Increase Overall Sleep

The hospital has since formally approved Massage Therapy as a service that may be provided to patients, physicians, staff and volunteers. Bill served as the Massage Therapy resource from 1998 - 2008.
Miami Valley Hospital joins the ranks of other prominent medical institutions including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Mount Sinai Medical Center in offering complimentary and alternative therapies to its patients.
