About Massage Therapy at Purposed Physical Therapy in Greenville, SC
We do not take any insurance for massage therapy visits. All massage therapy visits will be considered self-pay.
Each massage is designed to fit your needs, but can include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, and/or Active Release Techniques (ART)®.
- ART® is used by chiropractors, physical therapists, some massage therapists, and other manual therapists to treat soft tissue. It is referred to as the "Gold Standard in Soft Tissue Healthcare" and was created by Dr. P. Michael Leahy over 30 years ago while working on elite athletes to get them back to performing at their best as fast as possible. It has been shown to improve or fix many problems such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, etc. which makes it a great pairing with Sports Massage. Together, these two types of massage work to figure out the puzzle of your pain or problem area to get you back to moving and doing what you enjoy. Sports Massage uses Deep Tissue, strategic stretching, taping and other modalities to improve the function of the body as a whole. It can also be great for your pre-event warm up or post-event flush which aids in the removal of toxins from your body.
- Deep Tissue Massage is great for people that have muscle soreness and knots or adhesions in the muscle or fascia that need a little more focus work than a traditional Swedish Massage.
- Swedish Massage is great for those that want or need help with relaxing and is a great way to beat the stress of everyday life.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress. Investing in massage is investing in your health.
