Hospital massage is currently offered at Swedish Medical Centers; First Hill and Issaquah campuses.
Hospital Massage is an in-patient service for patients, caregivers and family members taking place in their hospital room. Massage is provided either in a patient's hydraulic bed or a massage chair that the therapist brings with them. If patients are comfortable rolling onto their sides, back work is done in a side-lying position. Hospital Massage sessions include our Nurturing Extras - optional heated towel, aromatherapy and sugar scrub for feet.
We provide mobile seated massage for hospital staff and events. A two hour minimum is required and our rates are $2/ minute. We look forward to working with you!
We provide you with information via your Acuity follow-up email and Stripe credit card receipt email to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. All services are paid out of pocket but most are reimbursed by insurance. Please contact your insurance company to confirm they will take an out of network claim. Only your medical professional can provide a Diagnostic Code. Please contact them directly if that is required by your insurance company. Insurance companies can contact us for the massage therapist’s TIN as this is information we don’t give out to clients.

For new mothers, massage is safe anytime after delivery, including C-Section, as long as she is comfortable. The style of massage we perform in the hospital is restorative and healing. Our massage has been shown to deepen sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, help with pain, decrease swelling, hasten healing and for new mothers, to aid in lactation.
What To Expect
Our licensed massage therapists are female, highly qualified and trained to work specifically with the pre and postnatal body and as well as with other patients with compromised health. We hire therapists who are dedicated to this passion-based work. They honor their clients and the sacred space of their home or hospital room. We perform the massage in the patient’s hospital bed and bring a massage chair into the room to work on family members, caregivers or patients if it is preferred. Chair massage can be no longer than 30 minutes long. We use unscented massage oil and offer complimentary pure essential aromatherapy, steam towels and sugar scrub for feet with every session.
