Hands on Physical Therapy is pleased to offer Massage Therapy.
The benefits of massage therapy are numerous. It is frequently incorporated into your Physical Therapy treatment plan. People often desire to continue with a routine massage once Physical Therapy is discharged to help manage pain, tightness and stress. An added benefit from receiving massages at Hands On Physical Therapy is that our Physical Therapists can work closely with our Massage Therapist to help tailor a session to suite your specific needs.
Whether you are seeking a massage as part of your after therapy maintenance program or because massage feels good and is a great way to relax, and unwind from the busyness of life, we are here to help you in your quest for better Wellness.
Each massage appointment will last approximately 55 minutes

Choose From The Following Type of Massage:
This deep form of massage focuses on specific areas of myofascial tightness and dysfunction. This technique uses deep firm pressure and slow and sustained strokes to release the deeper layers of muscle tightness and the surrounding connective tissue/fascia.
Lomilomi is therapeutic, specific body work which addresses movement restriction. It is a structurally focused massage which incorporates concepts of Hawaiian spirituality and meditation techniques. It is done with deep yet gentle touch and a seamless flow.
A relaxing full body massage where the massage strokes are long and gliding moving in the direction of blood returning to the heart. This is a great form of massage for those who want to decompress and relax after a stressful day at work or home.
A form of massage where there is prolonged stretching of the fascia in areas of restriction to help balance the body.
This massage typically incorporates the Swedish massage stroke but with the addition of essential oils applied topically in the massage oil to help further promote relaxation, healing, and pain management. If desired, essential oils can be requested to diffuse in the air to provide even greater relaxation.
Gua Sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves sweeping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient Chinese healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain and getting rid of chronic “muscle knots” in the tissues.
A technique where silicone or glass cups are applied to areas of tightness to unload the tissue and enhance blood flow and lymphatic movement. This approach is more targeted and therapeutic for areas of pain and tightness, not as relaxing.
Note: this technique can leave red circular marks afterwards that may take a few days to go away
Lymphatic drainage massage can be very beneficial to patients who suffer from swelling, have recently had a surgery, or even suffer from allergies. This technique is very relaxing and has a highly calming effect on the body.
This includes a dry bristled body brush for you to take home as well as additional education on how to perform this self care technique on your own.
Pregnancy can cause back pain, rib cage and thoracic pain as the baby grows, leg cramps, and swelling. Massage is a wonderful way to help reduce the myofascial tightness and swelling so commonly seen in pregnancy.
We have a specific pregnancy mat that allows for you to lie on your stomach with a cut out for your stomach so baby will be comfortable too.

HOPT Wellness Plan
At Hands On Physical Therapy, we are all about Wellness. We believe that all musculoskeletal problems whether chronic or acute will do better when one takes a holistic approach to healing. With a holistic approach, one can improve one’s health and reduce stress through exercise when it is done regularly and mindfully focusing on technique and form.
We understand that the insurance industry is changing and Physical Therapy is being discharged much sooner than the patient and Physical Therapist often desire.
Our Wellness Program will:
- Provide options for people striving to find the best way to continue with an exercise program they will stick with.
- Help keep a watchful eye on those that “graduate” from PT but need a little more guidance for their exercise program.
- Help provide additional services such as Massage and or Laser to those that find this helpful, but insurance won’t pay for it.
- Help educate our family of patients and the community at large on topics of wellness that may be important to them.
- Provide access to Mindfullness and meditation classes
