Medical Massage, also known as Clinical Massage, refers to therapy (a Complementary and Alternative Medicine - CAM) prescribed/suggested by a healthcare professional, and the massage is performed following the directives of that professional. This drug-free non-invasive manual therapy treatment is applied to the specific situation after an evaluation is performed by the therapist to help recover from painful soft-tissues and joint conditions and avoid the onset of chronic pain. Medical massage therapy is helpful for situations such as headaches, jaw pain (TMJ & Ligament), neck, shoulders including rotator cuff, low-back pain, sciatic pain, piriformis syndrome, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, and Peripheral neuropathy (PN). This refers to damage in the peripheral nervous system, which can include both spinal and cranial nerves. Pain - ranging from itching and tingling to severe burning sensations. Example - people with diabetic neuropathy condition. Customized myofascial release including trigger point therapy may be applied for such conditions.

Integrative (Swedish) massage is probably the most widely recognized form of massage. This massage technique is typically characterized by long, flowing strokes on the legs, arms, back, and shoulders, with more specific work (kneading and gentle manipulation of soft-tissues, and deeper work in places where tension or muscle knots exist). Swedish massage stimulates the skin and the nervous system at the same time. This modality helps relieve stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. This technique also lessens the recovery period from muscular strain by flushing the toxins from muscle tissues while increasing blood circulation without increasing heart load.
