CITY Massage: An Integrated and Holistic Approach

Pain: An unpleasant discomfort that can range from mild, localized discomfort to agony. However, as human beings we can all agree that pain is an experience that is multidimensional; not only does it effect an individual’s physical wellbeing, but also socially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritual. As your pain persists and continues to go untreated it can impair your performance and make responsibilities at work and family time excruciating.

Pain is the greatest incentive for an induvial to seek attention from a physician. According to Pain Med, 80% of physician visits are due to wanting pain relief. Since we know the complexity of pain relief being so much more than physical it would be for the patient’s best interest to use a holistic approach.

City Health Services practices physical medicine with an integrated approach for a reason. So, we can use the absolute best practice to improve the patient’s quality of life. Along with physical medicine and rehabilitation we also utilize massage therapy.

Massage Therapy: The manipulation of soft tissue to alleviate pain and discomfort. The physical relaxation is one of the sought-after proponents of massage, but studies have shown it promotes mental relaxation and addresses the psychological aspects of a patient's health conditions.
