Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage has a long list of health benefits and the list keeps getting longer as research continues.

Some of the therapeutic benefits of massage include:

  • Pain Relief
  • Increased Range of Motion

  • Anxiety & Depression Relief
  • Lower Blood Pressure

Therapeutic Massage FAQs

What is therapeutic massage?

Therapeutic massage is a fairly broad “umbrella” that encompasses many different techniques and modalities. The primary characteristic of therapeutic massage is that it focuses on achieving specific health benefits. Increased range of motion, improved circulation, and pain relief are just a few of the many benefits associated with therapeutic massage.

What conditions do you treat?

Our clients come in because they want to achieve peak performance, minimize muscle soreness, or expedite recovery from injury.

Common issues we treat include acute and chronic pains (low back, hip, neck, shoulders, elbows, knees, etc), headaches, repetitive motion injury, tendonitis, golfers elbow, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis to name a few. If you’re curious about whether or not we can help, just ask

How much time should I book?

Recommended session time varies based on your body and goals. 60 minutes is just enough time for most people to receive a full-body massage without any special attention to problem areas.

If you would like your therapist to spend extra time on a specific area or if you are more muscular (athletes, etc), 90 minutes is recommended. 120 minutes is recommended for those that have more muscle mass AND specific issues to address.

How often should I get a therapeutic massage?

Again, the short answer is “it depends”. It depends on your level of activity (frequency and intensity), the nature of your goals, your overall muscle mass, etc. After an initial visit, we can recommend a treatment plan based on our assessment.

Do you accept insurance?

Sorry, but we do not accept health insurance or Medicaid at this time. However, there are some instances where you may be able to receive full reimbursement or partial payment assistance through other forms of insurance. Please let us know if you need a receipt for reimbursement.

Who is therapeutic massage good for?

Essentially everyone. Massage therapy has a long list of potential benefits, which vary depending on the techniques applied. There are some rare instances where massage is not recommended. If you are unsure about whether or not you should receive massage therapy, please contact us or consult your doctor.

Is therapeutic massage the same as deep tissue massage?

Not necessarily. Therapeutic massage could include deep tissue work, but massage doesn’t have to be deep to be therapeutic. It all depends on your specific situation and goals. Pressure is always tailored to your comfort level and may be adjusted at any time during your session.

How is therapeutic massage different from medical massage therapy?

Clinical (medical) massage therapy could be considered under the “umbrella” of therapeutic massage. It is most often attempting to address issues with pain, feelings of numbness/tingling, or limited range of motion while therapeutic massage includes other, broader effects like improved circulation and stress relief. Medical massage therapy sessions typically include a combination of myofascial release, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular trigger point therapy, and assisted stretching to achieve results.
