Medical Massage/ Deep Tissue Massage Therapy/ Therapeutic Massage
Purpose of Massage
Massage therapy can help with negative physiological, mechanical, and psychological effects attributed to situations that cause a metabolic imbalance within the soft tissues. Once this balance is reached, on-going routine massage can help maintain it.
When properly performed, massage can bring about relaxation, relief from pain, reduction of certain types of edema (swelling), and increased range of motion. Through massage, stimulation is provided to the receptors of the skin and the underlying tissues. Massage stretches and lengthens tissue and increases venous and lymphatic flow within the body, thereby promoting healthy functioning.
Each technique can be a full body or a specific area treatment; you may also request a combination of treatments.
Medical Massage Therapy begins with a diagnosis and prescription from a Physician. (i.e.: Neurologists, Orthopedists, General Practitioners, Psychiatrists, Podiatrists, Oral Surgeons, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, etc.) A Skilled Massage Therapist will use a variety of outcome based focused modalities, techniques and protocols of treatment applied to the patient with the intent of improving and or resolving the Physician diagnosed conditions/pathologies. Where assessment might show soft tissue imbalance, non-prescribed therapy may also be administered.
Deep Tissue is designed to increase arterial blood flow to an area. It is deeper than a Swedish massage and capable of breaking up connective tissue adhesion’s.
Neuromuscular is the most advanced type of massage available. It works best with more chronic conditions where there are numerous trigger points and connective tissue adhesion’s present. NMT is designed to eliminate pain caused by these conditions.
“Dr. Cain is a great chiropractor! A visit with Dr. Cain is much more thorough than a standard chiropractic appointment. She will perform many tests to evaluate your condition, and provide appropriate treatments for lasting results. My experience over the last couple years has been excellent.”
