Medical Massage Therapy in Thornton, CO

Medical massage therapy is a treatment provided based on a diagnosis and prescription from a physician. It is not a specific style of massage. Instead, various techniques are used to address specific problems. Myofascial release, manual trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, and neuromuscular massage are all massage services that can be used clinically. 

In contrast to other types of massages, a professional therapist focuses the treatment solely on the area of the body related to the diagnosis. The treatment is broken down into 15 to 20 minute increments. Doctors often prescribe medical massage therapy for the treatment of conditions like fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Reap the Benefits of Medical Massage

There are many benefits of medical massage. Based on the recommendation of your physician, a licensed practitioner will perform a back massage, neck massage, sports massage, or another type of therapy. Some of the benefits include:

  • Relief of nerve compression. One of the benefits of medical massage is that it relieves referred pain, muscle atrophy, paresthesia, and pseudo sciatica, which can be caused by nerve compression or entrapment.
  • Reduction in pain and inflammation. A massage relieves muscle tension and improves its function.
  • Prevention of ischemia (inadequate blood supply to a part of the body). Medical massage releases tight and sore muscles, therefore preventing tissue injury caused by ischemia.
  • Deactivation of myofascial trigger points. Medical massage can significantly reduce everyday pain, including lower back pain, through the deactivation of the areas that refer pain throughout the body.
  • Better circulation. Medical massage helps to ensure the cells receive nutrients from the blood, while waste is carried away. This improves cell regeneration and boosts overall health.
  • Improved flexibility. Another one of the benefits of medical massage is restoring the normal range of joint motion.

They did a good job of taking care of my concerns. For anyone wanting a no nonsense massage that actually helps you feel better, I would recommend this to anyone. They are not a spa so no need to question your masculinity for getting a massage. :)

Finally a place where I get money's worth. First elbow to my back, I knew it was going to be a good deep tissue massage. Mariah gave the most professional massage that I've ever received. Made an hour go by super fast.
