Medical Massage

What is Medical Massage?

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

What are the benefits of a medical massage?

  • Improves Range of Motion: medical massage therapy targets the soft tissue or trigger point that causes the pain. When pain is reduced, the range of motion is improved. This type of massage relieves muscle tension and soreness which boosts mobility and flexibility.
  • Enhances Posture and Better Ballance: Poor posture affects the body’s balance which may also cause an imbalance in the muscular system. Medical massage therapy provides an excellent technique in pain management that brings balance to the nervous and musculoskeletal system.
  • Treats Trigger Points and Referral Pain: Trigger points are located in the skeletal muscle which produces pain when compressed. Pain may be the result of a trauma, ligament tear, muscle and nerve damage. Medical massage therapy is known for targeting trigger points to alleviate pain and discomfort.
  • Promotes Overall Health: Medical massage therapy does not only provide relaxation but also pain treatment. The goal is to rebuild the strength of injured tissues while restoring your body’s physical functionality. This type of massage also promotes improved blood circulation. Thus, promoting good overall health.
