California Rehabilitation & Sports Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. It's generally considered part of integrative medicine. A common misconception about massage is that it's only part of a spa day and intended for pampering yourself. While this may be true for some people, it is most frequently a tool for stress reduction and pain relief.

Massage therapy may help:

  • Nerve pain
  • Soft tissue strains and injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • TMJ disorders
