Living Well Medical's Licensed Massage Therapist ( LMT ) can help you recover and feel your best, whether you want pain relief from existing pain, or if you simply want to add massage to your overall wellness or recovery program.

We do not offer a "normal" full body massage, such as what you would get on a vacation or cruise. Massage is usually treated as an integral part of an integrated treatment protocol. The massage technique employed by our Massage Therapist are specific to the patient and their recovery and mobility needs. However, you can always request specific techniques or allow the the therapist to develop a plan that will work best for you. We will do our best to ensure that you leave feeling better and ready to let your body supercharge the recovery process.
Medical Massage Treatment
As part of an overall treatment protocol usually combined with physical therapy and chiropractic care. Medical massage is about finding, and through different diagnostic techniques, finding the cause of your pain. The massage therapist can not only help alleviate your pain but can also offer you pointers on posture, and movement that can help keep pain away well after your visit. Massage therapy can help reduce pain from routine postural distortions to trigger point pain, inflammation, and muscular imbalances.
During the treatment sessions your massage therapist may employ neuromuscular therapy, aiding lymphatic drainage, trigger point massage, PNF stretching, and deep tissue massage among other techniques specific to your condition.
