Medical Massage

medical_massageChronic pain is a terrible thing. It can be from acute trauma or old injuries, and it can stay with you for years. Medical massage has been shown to be highly effective at reducing acute & chronic pain conditions by dealing effectively with the base cause of the problem.

Current studies have shown that the vast majority of pain in chronic conditions, over 80%, comes from soft tissue injuries and over 74% is directly related to trigger points.

As well as eliminating the base cause of the pain and helping you live a less painful existence, medical massage therapy is very cost effective. Less time is spent away from work or having to deal with the side effects of pain reducing drugs.

Pain, either from stress or injuries are not things that we must live with on a daily basis.
