Massage therapy

Therapeutic massage is a research-based integrative healthcare which is increasingly utilized in pediatric hospitals for children with special and medically complex healthcare needs. The physical, psychological, and emotional benefits of touch for pediatric and adult patients are well documented in published research studies and the evidence that massage provides global benefits to one's health far outweighs any evidence of negative effects.
