Medical massage is a type of therapeutic massage that is used to treat specific health conditions. It is usually prescribed by a doctor or a physical therapist as part of a treatment plan. Unlike a typical relaxation massage, the focus of medical massage is on addressing the underlying medical issue. As a trained medical massage therapist, I have experience with specific techniques that can help alleviate pain, reduce swelling, improve range of motion, and increase circulation. Medical massage can be used to treat a wide range of conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. It can also be used to help manage stress and anxiety.
Holistic Recovery Support
Medical massage is not a style of massage per se, but it is a blend of modalities tailored to meet your unique health and wellness needs. I will find the ideal combination of techniques to support your body in improving circulation, reducing swelling, and increasing your range of motion. Unlike a relaxation massage, medical massage is focused on addressing the underlying causes of pain or discomfort. You may experience some soreness after the massage, but this should subside within a day or two. Medical massage can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, and we can discuss your specific needs and goals in order to create the most beneficial treatment plan for you.
