Inpatients, outpatients and outreach patients are seen for an initial evaluation upon referral from their physician. Treatment and goals are established based upon the outcome of the evaluation. Physicians receive copies of the evaluation and progress reports.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes.

Benefits:

  1. Enhances the function of joints and muscles.
  2. Improves circulation & general body tone.
  3. Relieves mental & physical stress and fatigue.

Deep tissue massage is effective in the relief of muscle induced neck pain, headaches, lower back pain, leg, and foot pain. Often symptoms of fibromyalgia are relieved by massage. Therapeutic massage allows the body to relax, even if the mind isn't willing.

Services are available at HCMH in the Rehab Services department on Mondays and Fridays by appointment.

Massage Therapy is also offered to Hospice patients through Hospice of Humboldt County.
