Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage therapy is part of the hands-on manual approach at SICL. As with all manual therapies, massage therapy – which deals specifically with the muscular and other soft tissues of the body – promotes balance and direct healing to the neuro-musculoskeletal systems. The therapeutic effects include:

 

  • Reduced pain and the accompanying stress response
  • Increased circulation and metabolism
  • Detoxification
  • Improved lymphatic drainage
  • Increased range of motion (joints)
  • Increased elasticity of muscles
  • Decreased muscle spasm
  • Less fatigue
  • Maintenance of healthy skin function

Medical Massage Therapy is a covered expense under some major medical insurance plans.

In addition to effectively treating many health conditions and injuries, massage therapy is used as a restorative to promote general wellness. Patients are welcome – indeed, encouraged – to continue to receive massage therapy after rehabilitative services are complete.
