Medical Massage Therapy decreases muscular pain. It is useful for painful muscles, post-exercise soreness, tingling in arms and legs, pain in or restriction of joints, injury prevention, fluid retention, muscle contractures and postural problems.
Medical Massage Therapy is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance function, reduce pain, and promote relaxation and well-being. It also decreases muscle tension, increases circulation and calms the nervous system.
Target tissues may include:

Medical Massage Therapy releases muscle and scar adhesions. It promotes accelerated muscle and soft tissue healing and vascularization.
