What Exactly Is Medical Massage? [WELLNESS WEDNESDAY]
Welcome to Wellness Wednesday! As part of this initiative, each week, some of our health-focused advertisers will be providing tips and advice for leading a healthier lifestyle.
Medical massage is a result-oriented treatment specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed by a physician.
The Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), like those at Spa 400, will use a variety of advanced therapeutic techniques that increase circulation, improve flexibility and calm the nervous system. The LMT works in conjunction with your physician as part of an overall treatment plan.
Medical massage often involves a series of treatments with the ultimate goal of improving/restoring range of motion and reducing pain. The therapist also works with the client on a self-care plan to reduce the risk of future injury and assist in managing chronic muscular pain.
