What Is Medical Massage?

Medical Massage Therapy is focused on providing relief from the pain associated with medical conditions. It is often defined as Massage Therapy that is performed to treat a medical condition diagnosed by a medical professional. Unlike traditional massage, Medical Massage focuses on a particular medical condition diagnosis and is typically a part of a physician’s, or chiropractic physician’s, treatment plan. It can be recommended for a variety of medical conditions and injuries such as things like migraine headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome. It is not a particular “style” of massage, but rather it applies the various Therapeutic Massage techniques already in use to accomplish some particular client-specific medical goals. Patients often undergo Medical Massage as a part of a larger physical rehabilitation regimen designed to benefit numerous chronic problems.

Medical Massage Benefits

Medical Massage from a licensed practitioner can:

  • Increase immune function:
    Some medical research now indicates that Medical Massage can help strengthen the immune system by raising the activity level of the body’s natural “killer T cells,” (which fight off viruses).
  • Lower stress:
    This is an important benefit! Science has proven that the long-term health effects of stress can take both physical and emotional tolls. Therapeutic Massage can relieve stress and the many conditions associated with it, (such as tension headaches).
  • Boost mental health and wellness:
    Recent scientific research also suggests that the symptoms of things like depression, stress, and anxiety may be directly improved with massage therapy.
  • Improve physical fitness:
    Elite and weekend athletes alike can receive significant benefits from Therapeutic Medical Massage. It can prevent injuries, reduce muscle tension, and even improve exercise performance.
  • Manage pain:
    Pain is a terrible thing to have to live with. It can significantly and negatively affect a person’s quality of life. It also can impede recovery from injury and illness. Recent findings show that massage can be a great benefit in pain management.
