CINCINNATI (FOX19) - With more demands to manage than ever before, it’s essential that women—especially new moms and women undergoing surgery—take time to heal and make the most of their hospital stay. Beginning Monday, Jan. 9, The Christ Hospital will offer in-room massage therapy to new mothers in the Birthing Center and to post-gynecologic surgery patients. Patients who receive in-room massage can benefit from enhanced muscle recovery, better sleep and reduced anxiety. This can contribute to reduced pain medication and shortened length of stay.
The Christ Hospital is the first hospital in Ohio to contract with Bavia to provide these services designed specifically to address the emotional and physical needs of women undergoing childbirth or surgery. Bavia also supports patient satisfaction by transforming the typical hospital stay into a healing retreat with soft music, aromatherapy, candlelight and therapeutic massage.
