What is Medical Massage?

Medical massage is treatment based and focuses on therapy for specific injuries, pain relief, improvement of functioning, and resolving medical conditions. Doctors and chiropractors prescribe medical massage therapy for a variety of issues. Because licensed massage therapists are not permitted to determine diagnoses, the therapist works based on the doctor's diagnosis and prescription for treatment. Medical massage MUST be prescribed by a doctor.

 

Our therapists are trained and specialize in many types of medical massage modalities. Medical massage can be an incredibly effective treatment for many soft tissue injuries. Benefits can also include the following:

  • Release sore and tight muscles that may be causing a lack of blood supply to soft tissues and hypersensitivity to touch

  • Relieve nerve entrapment and compression

  • Deactivate myofascial trigger points

  • Improve circulation

  • Improve range of motion

  • Calm the nervous system
