Medical Massage


What is Medical Massage?

Today people try to achieve a more holistic way of helping an ailment, and medical massage is now becoming more prevalent as an answer. It’s becoming more common for the health profession to include a medical massage into a patient’s treatment plan and specifically prescribed by a doctor. Medical massage covered by insurance is also a more common reality.
Medical massage can relieve muscle tension, increase circulation, relieve nerve issues, decrease pain, improve posture and coordination, facilitate range of motion, and more.
Unlike ancient massage, medical massage focuses on a specific diagnosis as a part of the physician's treatment, and might be suggested to alleviate illnesses like carpal tunnel syndrome and migraines. A medical massage is not administered any different than a spa massage, however it is meant to apply varied massage techniques to specific areas of a patient based on a physician’s directive.

What Does a Medical Massage Therapy Treat?

Each medical massage therapy session is targeted to treat your individual health problems. If you have been diagnosed with a sports injury, muscle sprain or strain, arthritis, nerve issue, asthma, bronchitis, headaches or migraines, anxiety, or depression then a medical massage therapy session specifically degsigned for your needs will be administered.
