Medical Massage is massage that is performed under the directive of a physician. As such, the massage session follows a doctor visit and is usually for pain management and corrective therapy due to an injury or medical condition.
Medical Massage is prescribed by a physician, and that alone makes it different from other forms of massage therapy. Also, Medical Massage is entirely outcome based, meaning clients do not book time-based appointments for 30, 60 or 90 minutes for example. In this regard, the Medical Massage therapist works more like a chiropractor, physician or physical therapist.
Medical Massage sessions are prescription-specific, which means the session may be as short as 25 to 45 minutes. The prescription deems the session medically necessary.
