Also known as clinical massage or therapeutic massage, we perform medical massage not just to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing experience but also to help you experience healing.
At SMART Integrative Massage Group, we work directly with your doctors to find the right massage therapy for your diagnosis. Massage has been found to benefit numerous medical conditions, including:
– Multiple Sclerosis
By working with a licensed massage therapist, you can see your circulation improve, your oxygen levels increase, your range of motion improve, and your pain levels decrease. These factors, in combination, have been shown to improve the quality of life.
Along with being recognized as a treatment for the above mentioned medical complications, massage has been shown to benefit those who have recently suffered an injury, people who experience pain or loss of mobility from past injuries, and patients who will be undergoing or who have recently undergone surgery. Massage therapists use modalities such as deep tissue massage or trigger point therapy to target and break down adhesions, keloids, and scar tissue, which can restrict motion, limit flexibility, and cause pain.
The massage therapists at SMART Integrative Massage Group are expertly trained in various massage techniques and have worked with doctors in hospitals and clinics all over the area. Incorporating massage therapy into your medical treatment is a decision that should be made with a doctor; you and your doctor should decide together if massage therapy would be a beneficial aspect of your treatment plan.
