Massage Therapy for Regular Health Maintenance
Therapy Services are by Appointment Only. Please call 216-410-7645
To compliment the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere at Crooked River T'ai Chi Center, we've added therapeutic massage by licensed professionals to our wellness services. Instead of seeking massage therapy solely for relaxation and pampering, people are turning to massage therapy to assist with medical conditions. Recent research gathered by the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) has reported the positive effects of massage for the following conditions:
- Low Back Pain
- Osteoarthritis of the knee
- Cancer-related fatigue
- Reducing post-operative pain
- Boosting the body’s immune system functioning
- Decreasing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
- Lowering blood pressure
- Reducing headache frequency
- Easing alcohol withdrawal symptoms
- Decreasing pain in cancer patients
Massage Therapy at Crooked River Center is not like going to a Spa!
There is only one private room and one table dedicated to our client’s care. We won’t pluck your eyebrows and we won’t buff and lacquer your nails! What we will do is provide you with a professional massage therapy session, performed by a licensed therapist, in a safe, clean and caring environment to address your health and wellness needs – one person at a time.
Four Common Types of Massage Therapy>
- Swedish – The most common type of massage, to relax and energize you.
- Deep Tissue – For muscle damage from an injury, such as whiplash or back strain
- Sports – To help prevent athletic injury, keep the body flexible and help recovery
- Chair – Massage of the upper body, while fully clothed and seated in a special portable chair
What Should I Expect During My Massage Session?
The type of massage you receive is mostly determined by you and your therapy needs! When you meet your therapist at your first session at Massage at Crooked River, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire that provides us with your contact information. You will also be asked your preference to remain totally or partially uncovered under a drape, or fully clothed. At each visit thereafter, your therapist will ask you about any current physical problems that you would like addressed during your massage and you will also have an opportunity to ask questions.
