This is a blanket term used for soft tissue corrective techniques, or manual therapy. These require client/therapist interaction and are performed with the intention of improving function and decreasing pain.
Manual therapies currently available at Oregon Clinical Massage include: Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Postural Alignment, Pelvic Stabilization, Positional Release, Muscle-Energy Techniques, Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
A clinical massage therapy treatment session will probably include several of the above, and which ones we use will be determined by your presenting concerns at the time of service.
It will also generally include stretching and/or exercise homework so that you can maintain the progress you have made during the session.
After a clinical massage treatment, the therapist will write out a few notes for your file to keep track of progress, and will receive payment at the time of service.
