Massage Therapy

Clinical Massage Therapy is focused on results.

Massage Therapy for:

Our Licensed Massage Practitioners:

Massage therapy seeks to restore muscles and soft tissue to normal length and tension, while decreasing pain and enhancing function. While the human skeleton provides the framework of the body, muscles, ligaments and tendons hold bones in position and produce movement. When injury occurs, whether chronic or acute, muscles often respond by becoming shortened, tight, scarred, or painful. Massage therapy can loosen and relax muscles.

Clinical massage therapy is different from recreational massage at a spa or resort. While both can be relaxing, clinical massage focuses on specific problem areas and the functional outcomes of the treatment. This means the results of the massage must be measurable. The prescribed treatments are based on evidence from medical studies. Clinical massage is preformed for medical necessity.

Medical Massage Therapy

Massage has been appreciated as a vital part of health care for thousands of years in healing traditions around the world. Massage therapists use a variety of myofascial and neuromuscular techniques to restore normal communication between muscles and the nervous system and to change the quality of soft tissue.

While many studies have supported the benefits of massage, medical massage is very different from spa massage. The priority of medical massage is to treat medical conditions and restore function.
