Your Massage Therapy Visit
At Scott Family Health, each massage therapy visit begins with a careful review of your diagnosis, health history, and any problems you may be experiencing. An evaluation is then performed to confirm your working diagnosis and determine whether your pain could be stemming from deeper conditions. To better serve you, our therapists have immediate access to both a doctor of chiropractic care and a doctor of physical therapy, should any questions arise during treatment.
Massage therapy is a safe, non-invasive form of healthcare that can be beneficial for patients who have acute or chronic pain and for alleviating stress or tension. Massage not only offers relief, it has also been shown to improve a number of conditions and concerns. At Scott Family Health, our goal is to ensure long-lasting benefits from massage therapy for each of our patients.
During a sports massage, your therapist will use a variety of techniques as they focus on specific muscle groups throughout the body. A typical massage will begin with rhythmic, stroking movements that will help you to relax allowing your therapist to identify any tense and tender areas. As the massage continues, therapists gradually begin to focus on deeper tissues, using a kneading motion to stretch muscle fibers and stimulate circulation. Near the end, they may use forceful grasping and stretching motions to separate and break down harmful tissues. Through sports massage in Loveland, athletes find the relief they need to properly heal from the hard work they have put their body through.
I have been getting massages for years and no one tops my therapist at Scott Family Health! She is by far, hands down, the best massage therapist I have ever been to.
