Posted:Monday, August 26, 2019

Hospital-based massage programs are on the rise as care providers seek non-pharmacological modalities for pain and stress relief. Learn about how these programs work by tuning in to MTF’s two-part Research Perch podcast interview with guests Corrie Frey, LMT, CIMI, CPMT, and Deborah Zerkle, LMT, CA, CIMT, CPMT, from the Massage Therapy Program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Columbus, Ohio. MTF has an ongoing relationship with NCH; they were a 2018 MTF Research Grant recipient for their study on decreasing opioid use in pediatric patients, and Corrie Frey was a poster presenter at MTF’s International Massage Therapy Research Conference this past May.

Part One gives an overview of how the massage therapy program at NCH got started and the services they provide. Part Two discusses how a hospital-based massage program works.
