Massage can help reduce stress, provide pain relief, improve your range of motion and provide relaxation. CoxHealth provides general massage therapy to the public, and to inpatients with a physician order. Special services for new moms are available in Springfield.
Massage Therapy for New Moms
Our goal is to make your hospital stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible – but we know childbirth can be a stressful experience that brings pain and anxiety. Massage therapy can help by relieving stress and anxiety, creating a sense of well-being, promoting relaxation and better sleep, decreasing pain and discomfort, and reducing muscle tension and spasms.
Ask your nurse about obtaining a doctor's order for massage therapy. After your physician has approved the service, a licensed massage therapist can come to your room.
