Our medical massages are much more targeted than overall relaxation massage and are performed in our private massage rooms. When muscles are tight, stiff and sore or if your range of motion is limited, possible causes include mechanical factors such as having one leg longer than the other, pelvic unleveling/rotation, muscle spasm or poor posture. Stress, oversuse and repetitive use of muscles create an imbalance in the way we use our bodies. Over time, this causes musculoskeletal pain.
The intent of a clinical massage is to address these mechanical factors with specific soft tissue work. Clinical massage therapy may be uncomfortable at times depending on the level of restriction and irritation of the targeted issue. Open communication is key to effective treatment. Our massage therapist will always tailor the treatment with in your comfort level.
Clinical massage therapy is beneficial for:
- Sports injuries
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Musculoskeletal problems
- Limited range of motion
To participate in clinical massage, you can meet with one of our clinicians prior to your massage appointment for a quick assessment. Clinical recommendations will be made to your massage therapist to tailor your massage therapy session to your specific needs. The soft tissue assessment must be a scheduled appointment prior to massage.
