How long will the results last and how soon will I start feeling better?
This depends on several factors:
- The severity of the condition that is being treated.
- How long the condition has existed before starting muscle therapy. A general rule of thumb is to receive one massage for every month you have had the condition.
- The frequency of the therapy, especially at the beginning of the therapy
- The general state of your health and your age
- Cooperation with following home care suggestions
How often should I visit massage therapy for my pain condition?
Do I need a physician’s referral to receive medical massage therapy?
How does medical massage differ from general therapeutic massage?
When hired, all of the licensed therapists at Hands on Health are qualified to perform therapeutic massage and relaxation massage. North Carolina’s massage therapy license requirements do not meet the requirements set forth by Hands on Health’s commitment to medical massage therapy. As a teaching practice, our therapists undergo extensive on-site training that involves supervision and one-on-one medical massage training sessions. They must demonstrate their competency in 4 categories:
- Treatment planning
- Positive client feedback and results
- Skilled application of specialized techniques. Neuromuscular therapy (NMT), trigger-point therapy (TrP), sports and orthopedic massage, deep muscle massage, and myofascial stretching are some of the more common treatment modalities associated with Medical Massage.
- Communicating with Allied Health Practitioners

Teaching You About YOU!
In addition to benefiting from the specificity of medical massage techniques in Cary NC, our clients are also more empowered by a greater understanding of why their bodies have tension and pain and how to minimize the impact of chronic and persistent pain on their daily lives.
Muscle pain is a signal that your body is stressed and these pain signals should not be ignored. Chronic muscle tension and soft tissue injury is often caused by postural distortions from past injuries, repetitive overuse of muscles, or habitual movement patterns. For example: we find that many of our clients suffer from muscle pain and tension in their neck and shoulders. Lifestyle factors like hanging their heads forward at the computer desk and sitting in one place for long periods of time “day in and day out ” cause this chronic build-up of tension.
Chronic tension from past muscular injuries such as whiplash also perpetuate pain patterns. If these lifestyle factors and muscle injuries are left uncorrected and ignored, a person risks more severe injury to his or her neck, shoulders and upper arms. Nerve impingement and numbing in the arm or hand, intervertebral disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, and osteoarthritis are examples of these preventable more severe conditions.
Medical Massage Rates
Our clients appreciate that rates are based on time rather than the type of massage they ask for or the technique employed by the therapist. We aim to maintain as much flexibility for you when booking appointments and for our team so that each of our therapists can call upon all healing skills their training allows. There are a few exceptions to our practice of uniform payment-by-time. These and other exceptions are highlighted on our rates page: Medicupping massage treatments, How-to classes, and Couples Massage sessions are priced higher.

Medical massage therapists track and treat symptoms such as trigger points (radiating pain, tenderness resulting from ischemia (poor localized blood flow), drastic muscle tone imbalances (tension), and pain patterns during movement or remaining still).
Among other methods, our medical massage therapists have experience with Integrated Neuromuscular Massage Therapy. I-NMT is a treatment method that uses neuromuscular, myofascial therapy, and trigger point techniques in combination with a postural based treatment plan and client education. These techniques lead to long lasting results, often allowing our patients to avoid surgery and minimize the need for pain medication.
Achieving I-NMT competency requires a thorough knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy, injury-specific treatment routines, and postural analysis. As a teaching practice, our visitors benefit from receiving treatments from massage therapists who are immersed in mentorship and supervision and side-by-side practical training. Experience the difference for yourself.
For more information regarding the I-NMT technique, visit website, Bodywork Seminars, a division of Hands On Health.
