The Power of Massage 

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. Nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced fatigue

Getting a massage can do you a world of good and getting massage frequently can do even more. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.


Medical Massage

Medical massage in yakimaWhat is Medical Massage?

Medical Massage is result oriented and the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnoses and prescribed by a Physician, Chiropractor, or Physical Therapist. The Massage Practitioner may use a variety of modalities or procedures during the service, but will focus the Medical Massage Treatments only on the areas of the body related to the diagnoses and prescription.

Why a prescription is necessary to perform Medical Massage?

In order for the Massage Practitioner to state that they are treating someone, they must first be able to legally determine what it is they are actually treating.

Since it is beyond a Licensed Massage Practitioner’s scope of practice to diagnose, they must work from a doctor’s prescription if they are claiming to treat a specific condition. Talk with your medical practitioner to request a prescription, if you feel you may benefit from massage for your medical conditions.
