Clinical Massage is therapeutic in nature. Clients who have been in an automobile accident, and have chronic or acute pain issues can benefit from Clinical Massage. The goal of clinical massage is to get the client back to their normal functioning level or as close to that level at the end of treatment. Clinical Massage is scheduled in sessions 2 to 3 times a week for 3 to 6 weeks. During each appointment the Massage Therapist completes the following documentation: soap notes, assessment of pain level, range of motion, and sets goals. A doctor’s referral, insurance approval or lien is required before treatments are scheduled. There are no discounts for Clinical Massage Therapy.
The goal is to break the pain-spasm-pain cycle with frequency of massage. The massage therapist can use varying styles of massage for myofascial release, mobilization, manipulation of tissue, and neuromuscular reeducation of movement. Massage styles may include, but not limited to: Trigger Point Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, Deep Tissue, and Myofascial Release.
This therapy is applied with clothes removed to the client’s comfort level with use of proper draping techniques.
