Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy refers to the pressing, rubbing and manipulation of the muscles and the soft tissues in an individual’s body. It is one of the most popular complementary and alterative therapies in the United States. According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey, approximately 18 million adults had received a massage in the past 12 months.

At Outpatient Services, we often include massage therapy in a patient’s treatment plan. Our licensed massage therapists use their hands and elbows to provide healing. Touch is their fundamental instrument of pain reduction. Because our patients have come to us with unique pain circumstances, our massage therapists determine how much pressure to apply to their sensitive areas, depending on their pain and soft tissue problems.

History of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can be traced back thousands of years. There are historical references to massage therapy in text from ancient China, Japan, India, Egypt and Rome. It became popular in Europe during the Renaissance era.

After studying in Sweden, two American physicians introduced massage therapy to the United States. However, in the 1930s, it lost popularity after the advancements in medicine. There was a resurgence in the practice of massage therapy in the 1970s.
