What is Clinical Massage & Bodywork treatment?
Clinical massage & bodywork therapy treats the physical conditions that are caused by physiologically and anatomically malfunctioning systems. Treatment goal is usually focused to the corrective function of the body. It requires more advanced manual techniques.

Any soft tissue or connective tissue issue: such as contracted, restricted; injured, torn, sprained or strained muscles, tendons, or ligaments; pain conditions; postural imbalance; neurological condition and myoskeletal misalignment; in any part of your body!
What are the differences between clinical massage and therapeutic massage?
Clinical massage requires more strict clinical protocols: such as spending more time to investigate the history of the condition, pre-treatment assessment; and post-treatment assessment. It also may require a clear treatment plan and a series of treatment sessions. Written documentation is also required. Therefore, it may meet your health insurance requirements for reimbursed expenses. While therapeutic sessions may require none of above.
