Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Many people think of massage as a spa treatment – like a facial or manicure. It’s true that massage therapy can be relaxing. In addition, there are types of therapeutic massage that provide emotional and physical benefits.

Some benefits of massage are:

  • Reduced stress
  • Ability to better manage depression
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Pain management
  • Improved flexibility
  • Boosted immunity

With benefits like these, you can see why adding massage to your physical therapy program can improve its effectiveness and speed healing.

Often, our physical therapists will recommend massage as part of your treatment plan because of these benefits. Massage is particularly effective in treating the following conditions:

  • Low back pain
  • Post-partum pain
  • Pain resulting from strenuous workouts or repetitive movements
  • Inflammation due to surgical intervention
  • Headache or other facial pain
  • Postural tension or asymmetries
  • Decreased flexibility

Therapeutic Massage for Kids

People of all ages can benefit from therapeutic massage. Our massage therapists have the special skills they need to work with kids and teens. Any of the conditions mentioned above can occur in kids, too. And massage therapy works equally well for everyone – from infants to grandparents. Additionally, kids can benefit from therapeutic massage in these ways:

  • Relieving “tech neck” that comes from looking down at a device for long periods of time
  • Improving sleeping habits
  • Easing muscle pain from athletic training or injury
  • Increasing relaxation for children with forms of autism, ADD, ADHD
  • Improving muscle extension in children with cerebral palsy
  • Relieving growing pains
  • Facilitating growth in infants
