Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can help relax tight and tense muscle groups and provide symptomatic relief.

Massage TherapyMassage therapy involves ‘hands on’ therapeutic procedures designed to promote blood flow, relaxation, and healing in injured areas. The target tissue of massage therapy is the connective tissue in the musculoskeletal system. This connective tissue holds muscle fibers in groups to make a muscle and to hold muscles together. These structures also attach muscle to bone, bone to bone, skin to fat, and fat to muscle.

Massage therapy involves applying deep pressure and slow, penetrating strokes generally along the length of the muscles. It is a soft tissue manipulation and releases restricted areas of the muscles. It is usually not painful but can be very intense.

By engaging in our massage therapy services, you will see positive towards conditions including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Joint pain
  • Fibromyalgia

While these services to positively impact the above conditions, massage therapy is also something most patients enjoy. Many people claim that massage therapy produces feelings of comfort, reduction of stress, and freedom from pain and muscle tension. Massage Therapy isn't meant to be a replacement for medical care, so please consult one of our physicians about your current conditions.

At Atlas Medical Center we have massage therapists with years of experience providing relief to patients with tight and tense muscles.
