What is Rehabilitation Massage?
Rehab Massage is a targeted site-specific therapy with a defined anticipated goal or outcome. A number of massage modalities are used to subjectively to care for your body’s needs. Whether your goal is to decrease pain caused by a chronic physical issue brought on by work and long-term activities or to heal from a specific injury, Rehab massage directly works to aid in recovery and then manage a state of well-being.
What to Expect During your Rehab Massage Session
We start by taking detailed notes of the pain or injury you are seeking therapy for. This is obtained through a series of questions that allows the therapist to understand the origination of your specific discomfort. After your concerns have been identified and a personalized goal has been defined, the session will take place using the appropriate massage techniques for your rehabilitation therapy. This therapeutic massage targets your discomfort and helps to lessen pain, increase range of motion, and aid in the healing process. With regular treatment you can find that Rehab massage is wonderful for preventing and managing stress as well as relieving restriction and pain in a targeted area of the body. After your Rehabilitation massage we provide suggestions and recommendations to aid in continuing your overall well-being. This may include how often you should receive rehabilitation massage therapy, advice on what to do outside of the massage session and appropriate referrals to further your healing process.
