Medical massage is a specific type of massage therapy that’s focused on treating specific ailments or medical conditions. More than a general massage, the treatment has been personalized to the patient’s specific needs.
A medical massage therapist uses a variety of therapeutic techniques that are designed to address and alleviate symptoms of specific health issues. The therapist may use a combination of massage styles such as deep tissue massage, myofascial manipulation, trigger point therapy, and others depending on the patient’s condition.
Conditions that may benefit from medical massage include tendonitis, migraines, pain from nerve compression, fibromyalgia, or other soft tissue and neurological conditions with symptoms of chronic pain. The treatment aims to increase circulation, improve mobility, decrease tension, leading to alleviated pain and reduce or even eliminate the need for medication or surgery by facilitating the body’s natural healing process
It’s important to note that our therapists have advanced training and knowledge in anatomy and physiology to effectively treat the specific medical condition. Also, we recommend that you discuss our treatment with your healthcare provider in order to coordinate your medical care.
