Relief And Recovery
- Nerve Constriction – Nerves run along-side of, between and through muscles. Tight muscles can squeeze and put pressure on nerves causing constriction, which interferes with free flow of nerve impulses and sometimes causes pain.
- Tight Muscles – Tight muscles may also constrict blood vessels, thus slowing blood flow to an area-a condition called Ischemia. Ischemia causes pain.
- Trigger Points – Trigger points are specific spots in muscles and tendons which cause pain, and may radiate pain to a larger area. Trigger points can be created by repeated use of a particular muscle, or may develop over time from chronic muscular tension.
- Therapeutic Massage – Therapeutic Massage received regularly helps melt away a certain amount of tension in each session, and if received regularly keeps tension from building up again.
Using Health Insurance For Massage
You can now use your insurance to pay for your massage therapy. The steps to get your massage session covered by health insurance are as follows:

- Contact our office for advice on insurance benefits, Marcia Sanders works for doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists and chiropractors.
- Check with your auto insurance provider. If prescribed by a health care professional, your auto insurance may cover your massage therapy if you need massage as a result of an auto accident.
- Check your workman’s compensation. Workman’s compensation will cover massage therapy services if you were hurt as a result of a job injury.
