What is Nursing Services/Medical Massage?

 

"People are now recognizing massage therapy as part of a comprehensive approach to wellness, prevention, stress management, and health."

-Forbes FYI

 

Medical massage is the science of applying specific strokes and pressure to various body parts in order to release these parts from a dysfunctional holding pattern. Bodies speak in sensations. There is an art involved in understanding this language. Our bodies have much information to give us.

Soft tissue pain is an often undertreated area of medicine. This is where medical massage can assist in muscle rehabilitation. It is important to address the pain before trying to strengthen the muscles.

 

Medical Massage is treatment.  It is:

   
Safe and non threatening
   
Critical to health
   
Alternative to drugs
   
Physiologically healing
   
Multiple modalities
