Medical Massage is a therapeutic massage that is meant to target a specific injury or issue. The main goal of this massage is to decrease pain and stress caused by overuse, improper function, or injuries to the body. Each medical massage treatment plan is tailored to an individual’s health needs and goals. Medical massage or therapeutic massage does not need to cause intolerable or excruciating pain to get results. It is a more focused type of massage and your therapist will work to release chronic muscle tension or knots that are causing a specific medical issue or problem.
