Licensed and certified massage therapist, Donna M. Longtin, LMT, RYT, HCC, has joined the Rehabilitation team at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital.

Bringing her talents

Longtin will offer a variety of massage techniques including Swedish/Relaxation Massage, Myofascial Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage.

"We are pleased to offer Massage Therapy as a supplement to traditional therapies provided by our Rehabilitation team," said Dr. Peter Ouellette, Manager of Baystate Rehabilitation at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital in Ware. "Massage Therapy has been credited with reduced pain, eased muscle aches and tension, reduced stiffness, improved range of motion, increased flexibility, enhanced soft tissue healing, improved blood and lymphatic circulation and a deepened sense of relaxation."

Her start in massage therapy

Longtin graduated from the Central Massachusetts School of Massage and Therapy in 2002. She has continued her studies with the Bancroft School of Massage, the Kripalu Center for Health & Yoga, the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, the Freedom from Pain Institute, and the BioSynchronistics Institute.

"Massage Therapy can help assist clients to experience a balanced and centered mind-body connection, giving their body an opportunity to begin the healing process," Longtin said.

Individualized 30, 60, and 90 minute massage sessions are available. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the BMLH Rehabilitation Department.
