What is Medical Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a process of stroking, pressing, and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate and tone the body. Although massage largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscles and the organs themselves. The benefits are wide-ranging: from lowering blood pressure and improving muscle tone to improving posture and promoting quality sleep. Our therapists specialize in various types of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, and myofascial release massage.
Point Performance provides medical massages, which is delivered under the direction of a team of healthcare providers. Our therapists all hold higher degrees and have training in orthopedic treatment, knowledge of pathologies and contraindications, and practice in techniques of eastern and western massage.
