Bodywork & Massage Therapy Vancouver WA

Relaxation, restorative functional movement, pain relief & management

Bodywork & Massage Therapy Vancouver WA

Massage is the original touch therapy that has been around for as long as humans have been on this planet. The earliest written records of massage date back to 3000 BCE throughout China, India, and Egypt. Massage is intended to relax the body and bring relief to aches, soreness, and pain.

Everybody experiences physical discomfort at some point in their life. But some people have pain that requires specific attention. Whether temporary or ongoing, many pain ailments can be addressed by a massage and bodywork specialist.

A bodyworker is a licensed massage therapist that has gone above and beyond required training to become board certified. The training received is medically-focused.

How is medical massage therapy different from traditional “spa” massage?

Medical massage therapists provide goal-oriented treatments to achieve specific outcomes. Traditional massage only has one goal: whole body relaxation. With spa massage, the treatment is generally the same for everyone regardless of the uniqueness of their body. With medical massage, a clinical therapist works with you to create a treatment plan specific to your needs.
