What is the difference between a sports massage, medical massage, and wellness massage?
Sports / Deep Tissue Massage The emphasis of sports/deep tissue massage is the prevention of repetitive strain injuries (RSI). Whether you're hunched over your computer keyboard 8 hours of the day, or running your third triathlon this year, sport/deep tissue massage is designed to maintain top performance, increase productivity and speed recovery post-activity.
Medical Massage Medical massage therapy is outcome based massage, with a measurable result. Our specialized treatment protocols focus on areas related to a diagnosis and prescription. Many times, insurance will cover your treatment. We also assist other medical professionals with patient rehabilitation and wellness plans, working with both insured and non-insured clients. Please Note: Your insurance coverage must be verified prior to your appointment.
Wellness Massage Wellness Massage supports immune function by flushing the lymphatic system, boosting circulation and reducing inflammatory stress hormones, aiding relaxation and awareness. Regular wellness massage corrects small imbalances before they become chronic pain conditions or syndromes. We believe, wellness is more than being free from illness; it is purposefully caring for your health.
