FAQs on Medical Massage Therapy:
What is a Medical Massage?
Our massage therapies are not your spa's massage therapies. Medical massage therapy is outcome-based massage, targeted to a patient’s specific problem(s) based on a thorough assessment/evaluation.
Medical massage can be a powerful ally for many of our patients, particularly in addressing stress relief and pain management needs. Additionally, all of our licensed therapists are under the direction of a supervising physician. This means the patient will receive the highest level of care and knowledge available.
The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease and illness is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. Our licensed therapists will provide you with the right treatment to get you out of pain and feeling great again.
