Medical Massage involves kneading, stroking and tapping the soft tissues of the body—the muscles, skin and tendons – under the supervision of the Doctor. To do this, therapists can use their fingers, palms, fists or elbows.

There are different degrees of massage. Deep tissue massage applies strong pressure along the grain of the muscle to ease pain and tension knots, and to break up scar tissue and eliminate it.

Benefits:  Almost anyone can benefit from these three types of massage, and they are often an adjunct to other forms of treatment. Research studies have found that massage is good for all types of pain control by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain reliever.
