Aches & Pains

Therapeutic Medical

Medical massage is a general term which is used for massage therapy aimed at addressing medical conditions. It is different in its aims from relaxation massage. It is much more of an option to consider when you have a chronic or persistent pain or have sustained an injury and would like help and support in finding ways for it to heal.

Medical massage is a unique multidisciplinary approach that helps restore structural balance throughout the body, which in turn allows focus on prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions, chronic pain and sports injuries. Your massage therapist draws from their training in a wide variety of modalities and procedures to select the methods which seem most appropriate for your individual case and diagnosed condition. This could include a combination of functional assessment, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, neuromuscular and trigger point therapy, craniosacral therapy, neuromuscular re-education, PNF stretching, and recommendations for specific client home-care protocols.

Medical massage can be an effective treatment for many conditions, including back pain, neck pain, repetitive strain injury, sciatica, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and dysfunction, movement and motion issues, swelling, sports injuries, postural issues, digestive issues, anxiety, and other conditions involving chronic pain or fatigue as well as injuries sustained from accidents and other incidents.

Definitive research has just recently been published in peer reviewed scientific journals showing the physiological benefits of massage on our bodies and wellness.   This article published in the Wall Street Journal on March 13, 2012 says it all:  Don’t Call It Pampering: Massage Wants To Be Medicine.

During the birth of our son a vacuum was needed to help bring him into the world. Like any vacuum use he was born not only with his cone head but an extra cone from the vacuum. After just one CranioSacral therapy session with Donna at two days old, the extra bump from the vacuum was undetectable. Our pediatrician was amazed at how “normal” our son’s head looked! She commented on it a few times how she would never have guessed our son underwent vacuum extraction.
