A medical massage treats pain, function problems, and other issues resulting from diagnosed medical conditions. Medical massage therapists have special training in unique techniques that reeducate soft tissues and muscles.
Applying these techniques reduces inflammation, improves circulation, resolves imbalances, boosts flexibility, and helps you function better with less pain. Additionally, medical massage provides the same benefits as a traditional massage such as the signature massage: stress relief and soothing relaxation.
Medical massage treats a medical condition, and since every medical condition is unique, the specific techniques depend on your diagnosis. The Inner G Restorative and Holistic Care team uses a broad range of medical massage techniques, with some examples including myofascial release and trigger point therapy.
Medical massage therapists can manipulate the muscles, connective tissue, and soft tissues of the body in specific ways to return them to healthier states. This ultimately allows all the tissues to interact in the ideal way and eliminates pain and restrictions like scar tissue buildup.
In general, medical massage uses medium-to-firm touch techniques, while relaxation massages use a light touch. Medical massage typically accesses the deeper layers of tissue that relaxation massages usually don’t touch, but it can also involve a lighter touch based on the underlying issue.
Medical massage sessions are provided in 75, 90 or 120 minutes. In most cases, patients have a series of medical massage appointments until they experience a full recovery.
Many patients who visit Inner G Restorative and Holistic Care do so following a doctor’s recommendation or referral. Some of the conditions that respond well to medical massage include:
