Massage therapy, a new service available at Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital, will begin May 14.

The new service will be provided at the hospital by licensed massage therapist, Becky Walker, LMT. Walker has recently joined the team at Gundersen St. Joseph's and is excited about the application of massage therapy in a clinical setting. "I'm looking forward to being part of the continuum of care and coordinating treatments with other health care professionals for the good of the patient," Walker.

Studies show that massage therapy may be beneficial for those suffering with back and neck pain, joint pain and muscle pain. Massage therapy may also improve stress, depression and promote an overall sense of relaxation.

"Massage therapy compliments many other methods involved in pain management and rehabilitation," says Ashley Thayer, director of rehabilitation at Gundersen St. Joseph's. "It's a great addition to our service portfolio and we're excited about its use in helping individuals recover."

Massage therapy is a self-pay service and does not require insurance or a provider referral. Sessions start at $25. For more information and to book your appointment, call Gundersen St. Joseph's rehabilitation department at (608) 489-8260.
