Therapeutic or medical massage employs a variety of modalities in order to address underlying conditions, injuries, pain, or stress. Techniques such as lymphatic drainage, shiatsu, deep tissue, and other focused treatments are used to achieve specific goals set by the patient and massage therapist. In many cases, the massage therapist works hand-in-hand with other healthcare providers to achieve the best possible health outcomes for the patient. Medical massage also helps to prevent future chronic pain conditions by effectively dealing with the cause of the problem and managing its symptoms.
Massage therapists review relevant information and formulate massage sessions that target to your specific needs. Therapeutic massage means more than relaxation. The work is focused on measurable physical healing.
