What is Medical Massage?

Medical massage, also known as Clinical massage, is massage that is targeted to specific problems in order to alleviate those issues. There isn't a medical massage technique, instead, traditional massage techniques are used in specific ways that are designed to bring about deep and long-lasting changes in the soft tissue areas that are problematic. Medical massage is not a relaxation massage, it is often uncomfortable and can leave the client sore for a day or two. It is very important to drink plenty of water after your treatment, at least half a gallon and do the stretching 'homework' that will be assigned to you.

Some of the issues that medical massage is very good at giving relief from are: Piriformis syndrome (Sciatica), Thoracic outlet syndrome (pain or tingling going down the arm also cold forearms and hands), Carpel Tunnel syndrome, Tennis elbow, Golfers elbow, Headaches, Migraines, Whiplash, TMJD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), Teeth clenching, Back pain, Runners issues, Plantar fasciitis, Body pain (neck, shoulder, elbow, arm, hand, back, abdominal, hip, leg, knee, foot), preparing for and recovering from surgery (any and all surgery, but specifically hip and knee replacement), and recovery from accidents. Medical massage is also excellent for increasing sports performance, which is why every professional athlete gets medical or clinical massage regularly. Not only does it help them to recover more quickly, but it helps to prevent injuries.
