Medical massage is advanced training in the assessment and treatment of numerous conditions that cause pain and diminished range of motion in the body. Medical massage therapists use a wide variety of modalities and neuromuscular techniques to achieve the goals of improved quality of life for the client.

1. Allow at least 90 minutes for your first massage especially if you have chronic pain. Clients will have a short health history and intake interview so the a comprehensive plan of care can be developed. 2. It is advisable to refrain from taking pain medication 5 hours prior to your massage as medical massage requires a client to have an accurate pain response during myofascial trigger point work. If you are in active acute spasm it is better to alternate between heat and ice therapy for at least a day prior to your massage.
