Massage therapists resolve tightness and improve muscle function by manually manipulating the patient’s soft tissues. During massage therapy sessions, the therapist may focus on the patient’s muscles, ligaments, or tendons. These sessions can cover almost any part of the body (literally from head to toe).
Since massage therapy is non-invasive, it does not pose any risk to the patient. It’s also safe and appropriate for almost any type of condition or ailment. Massage therapy provides many benefits to patients, including:
Anyone dealing with chronic pain, injury recovery, inflammatory conditions, or emotional stress can benefit from massage therapy.
Numo Acupuncture uses therapeutic massage to encourage better blood flow and break up scar tissue. In many cases, massage therapy will be used to complement other therapies available here, including acupuncture, chiropractic care, natural medicine, and cupping therapy.
Our providers each personally evaluates each patient thoroughly before developing a treatment plan. Every plan is customized to meet the needs of the individual patient, many of which include massage therapy.
Massage therapy is non-invasive and safe for most patients but is sometimes inappropriate. However, patients should avoid massage therapy if they have lacerations, burns, open wounds, or broken bones.
Patients shouldn’t experience any pain during massage therapy sessions. However, if a patient does experience discomfort during a massage session, they should tell our providers immediately. Patients can limit soreness by drinking plenty of fluids before and after the session.
