What is Medical Massage?
Medical massage is a variety of massage treatments designed to alleviate painful, and tight, muscles and joints in the body. Medical massage is also indicated for many other pathological conditions that cause discomfort. The benefits of medical massage are both physical and psychological, as it simulates circulation, relaxes muscle tension and quiets the mind.

How is a medical massage session different from a Swedish Massage session?
A medical massage focuses on a specific condition or area of the body. In some cases these specific muscle groups, or conditions, are the only areas addressed through the massage. In other situations a full body massage is incorporated into the session. These options are entirely determined by the preference of the client.
