How Medical Massage Differs from Spa Massages

Oftentimes, we view massage therapy as a form of relaxation. While they can help you relax, massage therapy has many additional uses. If you struggle with chronic pain, inflammation, headaches, or other health care concerns– a medical massage may be the solution for you!

What Is a Medical Massage?

Simply put, a medical massage is a result based form of therapy. In addition to the amazing relaxation and stress relief benefits, the massage also addresses medical needs or concerns. If you are just wanting to relax after an intense day or a stressful season, this type of massage is not the one for you. These types of massages, given their need to problem-solve, can be more uncomfortable than a regular spa massage. This is due to the therapist using firm strokes, kneading, and tapping in order to work deep within the tissue. Therapeutic Medical Massage has trained therapists in targeted therapy. Some of the different types, using trained techniques, we offer are deep tissue massage, TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), SRT (spinal reflex therapy), Swedish massage, and PNMT (precision neuromuscular therapy). These techniques are proven to promote healing and provide pain relief.
