Medical Massage Therapy

Medical Massage Therapy uses focused, advanced massage techniques intent on relieving pain and discomfort due to injury, surgery, hobbies or daily activities. A thorough assessment of every client at every session provides our team with the necessary information to develop a successful and individual treatment plan.

Individual assessments include:

Client discussion – we take the time to sit down and learn about each client, their history, cause of their pain/discomfort, daily activities and expectations.

Postural analysis – multiple views of each client’s posture (how a person supports themselves while standing and sitting) are documented and compared to proper postural models.

Active Range of Motion/Functional Movement– clients are taken through various movements to determine limitations, pain activators and mobility.

Tests of Exclusion – also known as orthopedic testing. Tests used to further determine or exclude causes of pain/discomfort.

We do not claim to be physical therapists nor orthopedic specialists, however, use of these tests help us to further isolate the cause of your pain and determine whether our services would be beneficial in each case.

Referral – if we do not believe that our services would be a viable option or you have obtained a maximum level of improvement from what we can provide, we will not hesitate to refer our clients to another healthcare professional.
