Therapeutic massage is a result-oriented treatment, specifically focused on helping clients with medical conditions. It is a part of the overall plan of care to calm muscles and decrease spasm and dysfunction. Acute medical conditions occur immediately following an injury or sudden pain. Therapeutic massage helps reduce acute pain while the original injury heals. Sometimes your body creates a pain cycle with leads to long-term chronic pain. Chronic medical conditions are those conditions that do not heal, such as arthritis, or take a long time to heal. For chronic issues, we focus on stimulating your body’s immune system and normalizing nervous system function.
Our ultimate goal is to help your body heal itself. Depending on your medical condition, our therapeutic massage includes lymphatic drainage, muscle energy techniques, assisted stretching, myofascial release, joint manipulation, and Swedish massage techniques that focus on the entire body or concentrate on the area of discomfort. We work with you to develop the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs and lifestyle.
