Teal Center massage therapists began working with patients at Virginia Hospital Center in 2005. In the winter of 2007 we began working with the palliative care team and with the emergency department in the summer of 2008. Therapists have been credentialed by the hospital to see inpatients inside our suite located in the lobby of VHC's Mother and Infant building.

Doctors, nurses, patients, family members and friends can schedule an appointment for an inpatient to receive a massage in our suite. There is always some degree of touch that can be provided regardless of the condition of the patient. Inpatient massage is a self pay service and depends on therapist availability.

Please call 703.558.5454 (or x5454 from hospital phones) and our friendly reception staff will take care of the rest.
