The practice of massage therapy consists of the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles, connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, and joints with the purpose of optimizing health. The therapeutic effects of massage therapy are achieved primarily through the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues and joints of the body. The use of massage therapy can develop, maintain and improve physical function, as well as relieve or prevent physical dysfunction and pain.
Whether looking to rehabilitate an injury, improve athletic performance or prolong physical activity, massage therapy at Hydrathletics is a tailor-made treatment option for a variety of medical conditions and athletic conditioning needs. Massage therapy helps clients achieve increased flexibility and range of motion through the manipulation of fascia, muscles and tendons. If facing a chronic illness or acute injury, massage therapy can also assist with rehabilitation and the restoration of movement. Working alongside clients to determine the necessary techniques and pressures, our expert Hydrathletics team can help alleviate stress, pain and muscle tension through therapeutic treatment.
In many cases, massage therapy is covered by major insurance companies. Hydrathletics is experienced in working with insurance companies as well as Veteran’s Affairs and motor vehicle accident claims. Clients with insurance coverage through extended health benefits may also have coverage for our services and can call the Hydrathletics clinic to discuss options.
