Unlike traditional massage, medical massage is a specific session tailored to your pain issues. We use a blend of massage therapy and manual therapy techniques, including: Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Active Isolated Stretching, Cupping Therapy and DermoNeuroModulating.
We identify your pain, work the root cause and lastly stretch the affected area. Proper medical massage therapy brings about physiological change that will reduce or eliminate pain, return optimal range of motion and promote overall well being.
Regular medical massage has been shown to provide long lasting or permanent removal of pain and discomfort. Stress plays a major role in pain, and stress relief massage can and will be included in sessions to achieve pain relief.
