Massage therapy is a great way to ease muscle tension and promote relaxation. Through the strategic manual manipulation of soft tissues, massage can help increase blood circulation, bring more nutrients to problem areas, and effectively treat pain problems. It can be a great adjunct to acupuncture treatments, or can be very beneficial on its own.
What Therapeutic Massage Can Treat
Therapeutic massage can differ from a typical massage that you might receive in a spa setting as it tends to be more specifically targeted to get the root cause of the musculoskeletal issue. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
In addition to reducing stress and muscle tension, some studies have also found that massage can be beneficial for the following conditions:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
Our licensed massage therapists are experienced with treating a wide range of issues using a variety of massage techniques including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, sports massage, Thai massage, and prenatal massage. Each session is individually tailored to a person's specific needs and comfort levels.
Since therapeutic massage is considered a manual therapy, there is a good chance that your sessions could be covered by your health insurance. If you would like us to check your insurance to see if massage would be covered, just let us know when you schedule your appointment. If not using insurance, we do offer affordable out of pocket rates for massage therapy. Please contact us to inquire about rates or make an appointment.
