“Innumerable are the times when we physicians ask our patients at the end of our visit on hospital rounds, ‘Is there anything else we can do for you?’ When we hear the response, ‘you can send the massage therapist in more often!’ The massage therapists provide our patients with an oasis of comfort during very trying times.” – Jeffrey V. Matous, M.D., Colorado Blood Cancer Institute
