Medical massage or rehabilitative massage (known also as clinical or treatment massage) is a result oriented and the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed and prescribed by a physician.The therapist may use a variety of modalities and procedures during the treatment including ( Myofascial release, deep tissue, stretching, joint mobilization, cupping, hydrotherapy, etc...) but will focus the treatment only on the areas of the body related to the diagnosis and prescription. Medical massage could also be administered to address clients, where assessment shows soft-tissue imbalances.
Medical massage starts from 15 mins up to 1 hour which is the maximum time that insurance companies reimburse or accept billing for, if the client is coming with a prescription.
If you are currently seeing a Physical therapist, Chiropractor, Orthopedist, Osteopath, Podiatrist, or even Neurologist or Psychiatrist, check with them, if Medical massage, could be helpful to you.
Our male lead therapist Said Ait Alla is a Certified Medical massage practitioner and he has been practicing massage therapy for years. He is very knowledgeable in soft tissue injuries.
His first session, with the client will consist mostly of assessment. After the session, he will give a homework of stretching and strengthening exercises that the clients have to do on their own. In the follow-up sessions, he will be re-assessing the posture and the improvement of the damaged tissue. The length of the sessions and also the duration of the treatment could vary from client to client depending on how long they had the injury and how their body is healing. It also depends on how many sessions could be covered by their insurance company if they are coming with a prescription.
In order to see optimum results from a Medical massage, the client has to trust the therapist and he has to be very disciplined following the treatment is given by the therapist.
