Medical Massage

Medical massage is outcome based.

It is prescribed by a physician and the massage itself follows the doctor's instruction. It focuses on the specific issue or injury. It is rehabilitative and allopathic rather than holistic. The patient presents the therapist with a diagnosis from the doctor. The therapist then uses techniques to bring the body back to normal function. Generally there are four conditions for treatment of medical massage.

Sustained Contraction
Increased Tissue Waste
Increase of Fascial Adhesions
Decrease of Elasticity
