What is Medical Massage?

Medical Massage

We offer 60 Medical Massage to address specific injuries or concerns.  Medical Massage is different from therapeutic massage in that the goal is focused on a functional outcome such as to increase range of motion or decrease pain levels throughout a treatment course as opposed to solely relaxation and stress relief.  However, reduced stress and increased relaxation are added benefits of the treatments. Medical massage requires a greater level of expertise on the practitioners part in both medical notation and assisting in the diagnosis though more in depth knowledge of the muscles and body systems.
