Medical massage therapy is a treatment provided based on a diagnosis and prescription from a physician. It is not a specific style of massage. Instead, various techniques are used to address specific problems. Myofascial release, manual trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, and neuromuscular massage are all massage services that can be used clinically.
In contrast to other types of massages, a professional therapist focuses the treatment solely on the area of the body related to the diagnosis. The treatment is broken down into 15 to 20 minute increments. Doctors often prescribe medical massage therapy for the treatment of conditions like fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome.
