Benefits Of Massage

Research has also shown that it can be a beneficial treatment for anxiety, digestive disorders, headaches, insomnia related to stress, myofascial pain syndrome, paresthesia and nerve pain, soft tissue strains or injuries, sports injuries and 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 of massage. Adding massage therapy to your healthcare regimen is a good idea.
Licensed Massage Therapists offer medically directed massage services. Our therapist’s approach is to focus on soft tissue, spine-specific, and sports-related injuries. In conclusion, our Massage Therapists work directly with JOI’s Physical Therapists and our JOI Physicians in coordinating your care. Most insurance plans will not cover massage therapy.
