Reducing Pain and Restoring Function
Is all massage the same?
The term MASSAGE is very broad. It encompasses several modalities, from the relaxing Swedish-style massage, to various spa treatments, to therapeutic bodywork and restorative care. While all massage has the health benefits of increased circulation, relaxation and stress relief, not all massage is effective in treating acute and chronic pain conditions.
Do your symptoms require more than a relaxing and pampering experience? If so, you may have become frustrated with the hit-and-miss approach to finding a therapist who can offer sustained pain relief and restored function.
Until our licensing organizations establish a separate classification for "Therapeutic Bodywork", the responsibility rests on the consumer to become educated and to ask the right questions when searching for a therapist. Please take the time to read over the information provided on this website. It was designed to inform you. If you are like most, you aren't really sure what type of work you need. You just know that you are in pain, and you want relief. Before you run to the doctor to get a pill, an injection, or surgery, why not try a less invasive alternative?
