What is Medical Massage?
A capacity to combine the intuitive and the scientifically proven principles defines the art and science of medical massage. A scientifically based method of manual therapy that seeks a clear understanding of the principals of physiology that affect connective and soft tissue healing and treatment, and is designed to:
Quickly reduce and eliminate pain and normalize the movement of the musclual-skeletal system
Establish normal tissue tension & create a positive tissue environment to maximize blood flow for proper healing.
Be a non-invasive therapy that targets a specific area of the body and produces beneficial health results.
For the recreational runner to the serious competitors misalignment of the feet, legs and hips can not only wear on the joints prematurely but can also create injuries.

Orthopedic massage is a type of massage therapy which is focused on treating painful conditions which affect the soft tissues of the body. The massage therapist may integrate a range of techniques. Why is this more effective? Well, if all you have in your medical bag is a hammer then everything is treated like a nail. So the more techniques the massage therapist has the larger the tool bag to work from, ideally adapting his style for each client, as every person's injury, bodytype and tissue quality is quite different. All this resulting in better and more effective treatmentof these conditions.
