What is the difference between medical massage and massage therapy services?

Medical massage is outcome-based. In addition to stress relief and relaxation, a medical massage focuses on specific injury, stress point, or area of discomfort.

Medical massage targets your needs through a variety of techniques. Spa massage and medical massage may feel similar, but their techniques differ. During a spa massage, the techniques likely focus on relaxation. A medical massage therapist will use a broader set of therapies for muscle health and recovery.

Medical massage includes specific follow-up recommendations. A medical massage therapist will provide a targeted plan for treatment, along with recommendations for a series of timed visits versus a periodic spa visit.

When used regularly, it can:

  • Improve circulation
  • Release endorphins
  • Increase joint flexibility
  • Relax overused muscles
  • Manage other issues that lead to chronic pain
  • Reduce inflammation 
  • Improve digestion
