What is Therapeutic Massage? (Vickie)
Therapeutic massage can be performed by Licensed Massage Therapists (LMT's) who have undergone training on how to treat specific problems. Vickie is a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMP) and Certified Medical Massage Practitioner (CMMP) and has expertise working in the areas of Medical massage, Oncology, Geriatrics, Cerebral Palsy, Myofacial & Trigger Point.
There are several different types of Therapeutic massage as Therapeutic is at the top of the hierarchy to those such as Neuromuscular, Myofacial, Trigger Point and even Sports. The purpose of the massage is meant to offer health benefits meaning the client and practitioner have a shared goal of achieving structural changes (not just dealing with the muscle structures, but the bony structures as well) within the body, generally through a series of regular massages.
With Therapeutic massages, you present to the therapist, a specific complaint, for instance, pain in your hip, tight shoulders, or a spasm in your lower back… Or even all three. We follow these 4 steps:
Assess your current condition
Propose a plan
Perform the therapy
Evaluate the outcome
You should experience some degree of relief even in one session. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage and that they will get a very strong massage, but this is not always the case. It is however, mainly coming from another Health Care providers suggestions ie. Doctor & they will write you a prescription. From there, depending on your insurance, your Therapeutic massage may be covered! A receipt is given with other pertinent information and all you have to do is SUBMIT to your insurance!
