May 2 to 8 is Mental Health Week!

According to the American Massage Therapy Association (2022), massage therapy has shown to significantly reduce stress on both physical and psychological levels, including:

  • Reduced stress-related symptoms, including headaches, shoulder tension, insomnia, fatigue, and muscle and joint pain
  • Lower measures of oxygen consumption, blood pressure, and salivary cortisol levels after a 10-to-15-minute chair massage
  • Significant decrease in heart rate, systolic blood pressure, and diastolic blood pressure

May 9 to 15 is Nursing Week!

Cambridge Memorial Hospital wants to acknowledge all nurses for their tireless effort and dedication to patient care over the last year.

Remember that this time is for you to take a mindful moment. We encourage you to focus on your breath, as deep breathing helps to release any tension you may be holding onto in your body and clear your mind.

The massage is provided in a specially designed chair, offering ultimate comfort. The techniques are applied through clothing and can focus on tension areas in your back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands.
