What is Medical Massage?
Medical Massage is the application of physical medicine by a qualified Medical Massage Therapist(s) who practices in accordance with standards of the American Medical Association. The applied physical medicine is deemed medically necessary and ordered by a physician who has diagnosed the patient and provided a treatment plan via prescription.
Medical Massage is increasingly being prescribed by physicians as a complement to conventional medical treatment. When conventional medical providers work together with wellness-oriented providers, patients benefit because their therapy
now becomes integrative—they have access not only to drugs and surgery, but also to holistic therapies, such as massage.
Medical Massage is an expert form of massage that requires advanced training in pathology, anatomy, and pain management. It uses specific treatments to work with disease, pain, and recovery from injury. Medical Massage is not a
general treatment; it is a goal-focused therapy with a definite outcome or goal.
