Medical Massage

Arlington Massage Therapy and Wellness has been operating in the Arlington / Marysville area for more than 10 years.  When performing medical massage we keep in touch with your doctor. Our staff understands the different stages and phases of an injury and how it relates to your treatment.  We keep your physician or chiropractor informed of your progress.

HOW MEDICAL MASSAGE CAN HELP

The soft tissues of the body include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, joint capsules and nerves.  In most cases, these tissues are the primary culprit that cause pain and dysfunction and can be easily and effectively treated with a comprehensive plan utilizing Medical Massage.  Often, your pain can be eliminated permanently with a few visits by releasing chronically tight (hypertonic) tissues and restoring proper muscular health and balance to your body.  In other cases, medical massage can reduce your pain, perhaps enough to allow you to avoid surgery or other invasive procedures.  At Arlington Massage Therapy and Wellness, we’ve helped hundreds of clients recover completely from soft tissue pain, injuries, restricted motion and many other disorders.

The following services require a referral from a physician or chiropractor for massage therapy treatment.
