Clinical Massage

What is Clinical Massage

Clinical massage is therapeutic bodywork delivered in a medical setting - that is, under the direction of a doctor or other health care provider. Delivering clinical massage care requires advanced training (beyond the state's basic 500-hour licensing requirement) in clinical and orthopedic massage techniques, pathology and contraindications, medical communication and documentation, insurance billing, professional ethics, and legal issues.
