A therapeutic massage session is for treatment of a specific area or areas. A few minutes at the beginning of the session will be used to go over past injuries or illness that may have contributed to the current pain or dysfunction. There may be some brief musculoskeletal assessment in order to determine the cause of the condition and a plan will be mapped out to work towards overall improvement.
Massage can be light or deep pressure, modified to your tolerance, but there may be techniques that cause some therapeutic pain for brief stretches. Communication between client and therapist is very important to keep the massage beneficial. At the end of the session, activities such as stretching or strengthening may be given for home-care.
