Massage is an excellent way to relax the mind, body and soul bringing a person relief from life’s everyday stresses. All massages can be therapeutic if administered in a skillful manner. Specialized methods can coax tension from muscles, ease stiff joints and promote healthy circulation. What stands out as distinctive with a medical massage is that it primarily targets a specific problematic area of the patient. The discomfort is diagnosed by a physician through a careful assessment and evaluation of the condition, thereby prescribing a treatment plan which incorporates medical massage to that specific area of concentration.
Conditions that respond well to massage:
- Physical discomfort and pain in parts of the musculoskeletal system
- Back and neck pain
- Circulatory disorders
- Stress and its related disorders
- Anxiety and depression
