Medical Massage can be prescribed by a physician
(though not necessary), and involves an examination in which the ROOT
CAUSE of the pain/disorder is discovered and rectified in a minimal
number of visits (usually between 4 and 10 visits, depending on the
severity of the disorder).
Our practice focuses on medical massage for conditions like low back and neck pain, Sciatica, Carpal
Tunnel, and we offer the more traditional wellness massage, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point.
If you have been injured in a car accident or on the job,
or if you have another injury or condition for which medical massage is
necessary, your doctor may give you a prescription for massage. We work
with medical doctors, naturopaths, physical therapists, chiropractors,
and other health care practitioners, providing massage care when it is
medically indicated for their patients.
What is the difference between medical massage and wellness massage? Medical
Massage is an outcome-based, physician-directed, and scientifically
grounded healing modality. As with physical therapy sessions, medical
massage sessions are prescribed by a physician for specific issues and
are limited to a physician-designated course of treatment, and can be
compensated through insurance*. Please note that we do offer
therapeutic massage that is also outcome based, as described above
(prescription not necessary).
