Massage therapy is a form of hands-on therapy that involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues. It is often used to promote relaxation, relieve pain, and improve overall health and well-being.
During a massage therapy session, you will typically lie down on a massage table or chair while the massage therapist uses their hands, fingers, or specialized tools to manipulate your soft tissues. You may need to remove some clothing, depending on the type of massage therapy you are receiving.
Massage therapy can help with a wide range of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also help with conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
The frequency of massage therapy sessions will depend on your individual needs and condition. Some people may benefit from weekly or bi-weekly massages, while others may only need occasional sessions. Your massage therapist can help you develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs and goals.
Some insurance plans do cover massage therapy, but coverage can vary widely depending on the plan. It is important to check with your insurance provider to determine your specific coverage and any limitations or restrictions that may apply.
