Medical Massage / Bodywork
Medical massage is a natural form of healing which helps to stimulate the body tissues and organs, release tension and blockages and increase circulation to help restore bodily functions to normal. There are literally hundreds of techniques that are used to achieve this, many of which have been used successfully for hundreds of years.
Our office uses combined techniques such as acupressure, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, passive and active stretch, trigger point therapy and energy balancing to help achieve this effect. We have found these techniques to be superior in their effectiveness in treating even the most persistent of muscle conditions and have achieved results where other traditional therapies have failed.
Here's what Consumer Reports has to say:
..."For some difficult to treat conditions, notably back and neck pain and the mysterious pain syndrome known as Fibromyalgia, some readers said that a complementary approach actually did as well as or better than standard medical practice. IN fact, deep-tissue massage was rated significantly more effective than standard physical therapy or prescription drugs for back pain and Fibromyalgia."
By addressing tension, stress, and structural imbalances in the body, the various forms of bodywork can be an important part of any health maintenance program.
