Medical massages are outcome based massages. This means that after an evaluation by the massage therapist to determine where and how you need therapy, specific treatments will be used to target specific areas.
Massage therapy has been in use for many centuries and it has been proven effective through multiple studies. Different from relaxation massages, medical massages can be tailored to your health needs and help you recover faster.
This type of therapeutic massage involves more focused work on your body’s soft tissues such as: muscles tendons and ligaments. These help move and support your body.
your physician, chiropractor or physical therapist might recommend that you get a medical massage to compliment other therapies you are already receiving.
A massage therapist can work on any number of medical issues that are either chronic or acute. These issues can include:
Different people have different needs so there is no typical massage routine. Your massge therapist will tailor your massge to your specific needs.
The more information you provide, the better. Letting your therapist know what you need worked on or why your doctor referred you will be very helpful in targeting your individual needs.
The therapist may have soft lighting in the room and relaxing music playing similar to a relaxation massage. Instead of a whole body treatment though, a therapeutic massage tends to focus on your area of need for an extended period of time.
