The difference between Medical Massage and Spa Massage

In a society that is fast moving, stressful, and hard to get away from, it is necessary to take of yourself. There are many forms in relieving stress and healing from pain or other health issues. One way to get help is through a massage. A massage is a holistic healing practice that can be overlooked. According to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), some of the benefits of getting a massage are :

Medical Massage vs. Spa Massage

Now, there are two types of massages one can get; medical massage therapy and a spa massage. The difference between medical massage therapy and a spa massage is that the former option focuses on a

particular medical diagnosis that has been given through a physician’s treatment plan.  The Sanford-Brown Blogs says that could mean anything from “a variety of maladies, including carpal tunnel

syndrome and migraines” and, also, numerous chronic problems. Anyone that is looking to heal rather than just minor stress relieving method, can get the right treatment depending on the regimen given

for their specific concerns. It is a more in-depth holistic practice that focuses on the specific pain rather than adding a quick solution. Make sure, when getting a massage, that it is with someone qualified to

help you heal.

Even though massages have always been therapeutic, the American Medical Massage Association set standards for medical massage therapists. Vanessa Caram, LMT is licensed and insured
