From Nurture U Wellness: The Many Benefits of Medical/Rehabilitative Support Massage

The beauty of massage therapy lies in the range of techniques that are available for a variety of conditions or ailments. One especially valuable technique is Medical Massage.

What is medical massage and how does it differ from other massage techniques? This massage technique generally focuses on one issue at a time, providing specific & detailed attention. For example, if a client recently had shoulder surgery and is looking for support to help improve mobility, increase strength and reduce pain, the trained therapist would ask a series of questions to better understand the following. Why was surgery needed? When was the surgery performed? Is the client receiving physical therapy? What specific goals is the client hoping to achieve? The importance of acquiring this valuable information helps the therapist assess how to provide the best possible care. For licensed massage therapists, having proper training and a deep understanding of human anatomy is crucial. It’s also important to remember that therapists concentrate on muscles and adhere to their professional boundaries. At times, it may be necessary for the massage therapist to acquire additional information from the physical therapist or doctor to ensure that all wellness providers are on the same page and the client feels well taken care of, or as we like to say, nurtured.

Medical Massage is a great option for anyone who is receiving physical therapy and requires additional support to help expedite the healing process. For anyone recovering from a hip, shoulder, knee or ankle injuries and surgeries. A variety of techniques, including myofascial, PNF stretching, deep tissue and others are combined to assist with recovery process.

At Nurture U Wellness, we created the Medical-Rehabilitative Support Massage service specifically for this purpose. In our wellness studio, we offer this as a supplement to a client’s already existing physical therapy treatments or as a standalone option. We receive many referrals from different local physical therapy offices throughout the peninsula, with a notable mention to RBNY, located directly across the street from us.

Our therapists, Christina Cruz and Jocelyn Korn, are well-qualified experts who are trained, licensed, certified and insured. Jocelyn, with more than 15 years of experience, focuses on medical massage and is a graduate of the esteemed Swedish Institute. Apart from her work at Nurture U Wellness, she collaborates with chiropractors in New York City. Read below to hear what one of her clients shared:

“I’ve been seeing Jocelyn for regular weekly massages for the past seven months, and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Her skillful touch, attention to detail, and ability to customize each session to my specific needs have made a noticeable difference in my overall well-being. Her intuitive touch melts away all my tension and stress. Not only do I leave feeling physically relaxed and rejuvenated, but her calming presence creates a truly therapeutic experience every time.”– Diana S.
