Massage therapy plays an important role in many physical therapy plans. Massage can alleviate pain, reduce tension in muscle groups, reduce stress, and improve circulation.
Our team offers several types of massage specific to certain conditions, including Swedish massage, neuromuscular massage, and acupressure. In all cases, our patients work with their therapists to determine the appropriate pressure for soft-tissue manipulation.
Massage therapy also helps manage chronic conditions. We often use massage therapy to complement medical treatments and as an essential part of pain management plans. Not only does massage therapy address the tension of everyday life that may contribute to chronic conditions, but it promotes the healing process.
Some of the conditions we treat with massage therapy include:
Low back pain
High blood pressure
