What is Medical Massage Therapy?
Medical Massage therapy is designed to treat conditions causing discomfort by addressing symptoms as well as causes. The goal is to ease symptoms that create discomfort in the body and mind.
Medical Massage may be focused on problems such as back pain, sciatica, gastric reflux, headaches, compressed nerves, TMJ and Parkinson’s Disease, to name a few.
Medical massage therapy is often used with other therapies to improve outcomes. Therapeutic stretching, kinesiology taping, topical analgesics and ice and heat applications are often added with medical massage. These are often adapted to home programs to retain results.
Why Should I Get Medical Massage Therapy?
A pain-free life is possible with natural medical massage therapy. It combines the best of techniques including sports, deep-tissue, trigger point, myofascial and lymph drainage massages to release stuck or painful spots.
Without treatment, symptoms can take over and rule out daily activities. Medical Massage therapy calms symptoms and addresses their expression in the body through muscles, nerves, and connective tissue. At its best outcome, the body is able to heal itself and resume usual activity.
Medical Massage therapy also helps reduce or eliminate symptoms of a host of ailments – migraines, headaches, digestive reflux, constipation, urgency, panic attacks among them – by releasing pinched nerves and tight muscles inhibiting your body’s ability to relax, breathe and move.
How does Medical Massage Therapy work?
Carefully assessed and applied Medical Massage therapy works to correct problems such as low back nerve compression leading to sciatic pains in the back, legs or feet. For some complex diseases such as Parkinson’s, addressing affected nerve areas can reduce or slow symptoms such as shaking hands or stiff walking.
Dealing with medical conditions also improves mood, ability to cope with stress and general wellness. Feeling better helps propel the body’s own natural healing solutions.
One good example of this is in the treatment of headaches, including migraine, cluster and tension headaches. A person with headaches often has tight, stuck scalp and muscle tissues at the back of the head and neck, and treating these areas reduces the intensity and frequency of headaches. By freeing the scalp and small muscles trapping nerves at the back of the head, headaches along the eyes and forehead are relieved. Often people are able to completely resolve their headache issues with a course of treatment with medical massage.
Who is Medical Massage Therapy ideal for?
Any person who has a condition that is interfering with their ability to function at work or play. The goal is to address deficits in the nervous system, muscles, soft tissues or structure. Gastric ailments like irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, constipation, for instance are very responsive to medical massage
