Medical Massage sounds impressive, but in truth, it is your massage therapist following doctor’s orders for therapy.
It’s massage therapy with a specific plan and outcome. Perhaps you are suffering from a headache due to stress, pain due to a slip or fall, or recovering from an injury at work or car accident, massage therapy can be instrumental in getting you back on your feet. As doctors learn the benefits of massage to treat chronic pain, rehabilitation from an injury or to manage stress – many doctors recommend giving massage a try.
Healing can take time, however, the longer you suffer from chronic pain, the more time it takes to recover and the side effects can start accumulating. Massage can help find the hidden “spots” that are reducing the ability to move past a plateau of therapy.
