Medical Massage – $45 per massage
Available by appointment only at JOI San Marco and South Spine Centers and JOI Beach location only.
Medical massage therapy can offer extremely effective support to your healthcare regimen. Because of current research, massage therapy is increasingly being offered as an enhancement to standard treatments for a large number of medical conditions.
Studies have shown that medical massage therapy can be effective for reducing muscle tension, stress and pain. Research has also shown that it can be a beneficial treatment for:
• Digestive disorders
• Insomnia related to stress
• Myofascial pain syndrome
• Paresthesias and nerve pain
• Soft tissue strains or injuries
• Sports injuries
• Temporomandibular joint pain
Keep in mind that even though medical massage therapy can be helpful, it is not meant to replace regular medical care. Our physicians and massage therapists will be happy to explain to you the benefits you can expect from adding massage therapy to your healthcare regimen.
Our licensed Massage Therapists offer medically directed massage services, including those specifically designed to focus on soft tissue, spine-specific, and sports-related injuries. We work directly with JOI’s Physical Therapists in coordinating your care. (Not typically covered by insurance).
