Pain Management

Pain Management

Massage therapists utilize a holistic approach that focuses on the entire body and its connection to soft tissue.  The session isn’t  only focused on the site of pain, but referral patterns and postural issues and awareness.

The massage therapist helps relieve muscle and other soft tissue pain and allows clients to become aware of their bodies and better familiarize themselves with the pain they experience. 

Massage Can Help!

Soft tissue chronic pain can be addressed and treated using medical massage modalities. The massage therapists at Mantra Massage and BodywoRx (Blue Ash, Mason and Massage in Glendale), will assess the condition or pain, and recommend a massage therapy treatment plan along with a number of visits necessary to accomplish the goal of relieving pain. For massage therapy to be successful, please understand recognize that soft tissue does respond to massage therapy, but typically not in one single session.
If you experience chronic pain in the following areas please consider massage therapy – an "all-natural" method of relieving pain.
