Massage Therapy

We provide both medical massage and relaxation massage depending on the particular condition.

Medical Massage, also called manual therapy, is a type of massage therapy that is focused on a particular area of the body and is performed for therapeutic purposes.  It is performed as a medical necessity to provide symptom relief and improve function and is often covered by private health insurance as well as auto and worker’s compensation insurance.

Medical massage techniques include deep tissue muscle work, deep muscle stretching, Myofacial trigger point therapy, muscle stripping, the break down of scar tissue, removal of muscle adhesions, and lymph drainage.  

Relaxation massages are therapeutic as well and should be a component of any long-term wellness care program.  They include long flowing massage strokes to improve circulation, relax muscle tissue, reduce stress, and improve the immune system function.
