Our professional staff at Citrus Ridge Health Center sees the benefits to our patients of the Davenport FL areas, when Clinical Massage Therapy becomes an integral part of their physical therapy and Chiropractic Treatment Regimen. Patients experiencing fatigue, muscle spasm, and chronic pain, especially when recovering from an accident, injury or post- surgical healing will benefit from our massage therapy. Our team of clinical masseuse professionals partner with licensed medical practitioners like Dr. Scott Barnhart, resident Chiropractor, Ruby Fenn, our physical therapist, and our medical physician, Dr. James Meredith, to create a treatment plan that can change the course of your rehabilitation.

Clinical massage therapy increases the blood flow to your pain or injury location, stimulating oxygen and nourishing circulation into targeted areas, quickly healing your pain at its source. Patients find this type of assistance to their body's natural abilities to heal itself, and also reduces the appearance of scar tissue.

People around the world have used massage therapies for centuries with the ancient practices of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicinal techniques. The sports industry advanced care of professional athletes and other professionals requiring complete healing and range of motion after an injury. Massage therapy, when combined with our superior Chiropractic services, is an effective and integral part of successful recovery and continued health.

What is Clinical Massage Therapy?

The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork requires clinical massage therapists, or L.M.T.'s, to pass a standardized exam following rigorous training, and demonstrate their proficiency in core massage techniques to be a Licensed Massage Therapist. Professionals must abide by a strict code of ethics, and re-apply for certification every two years.

Specialized training for a licensed massage therapist for use of localizing massage techniques like sports massage, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, and other comprehensive manipulation techniques can include specializations for pregnancy, soft tissue neuromuscular massage or "trigger point", and chronic pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, headaches & migraines, and TMJ.
