In a perfect world, no one gets hurt, but sometimes life is less than perfect. Our bodies are road maps of our histories, and sometimes it is a long bumpy journey. Our medical massage program can help get you on the right track by assisting you in managing anxiety, pain, posture changes, scar tissue, fascia restrictions and your healing process. Each Medical massage therapy treatment is designed to suit the client’s needs at the time and the protocol for the injury. Because there is such a large spectrum of medical problems, feel free to ask us if we have experience in that area and what we can do to assist you in your management.
