ADVANCED MEDICAL MASSAGE 

The significant impact chronic pain has on 50 million Americans is a concern for all health care providers. Chronic pain sufferers are among the most underserved patients in the United States, further exacerbating this growing public health crisis. This group of patients faces many challenges –appropriate access to care, lack of validation of pain as a significant problem, the invisibility of pain and long-term insurance struggles. Our goal is to provide the best possible care for patients with chronic pain and understand their need for specialized attention. In our practice we work with people with acute and chronic pain, in addition to anxiety and stress.

We strive to provide the highest quality care and outcome based massage therapy services. Our wide spectrum of modalities includes soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, manual lymph drainage and trigger point therapy. We believe you will find that we offer superior care and we understand the importance of keeping the doctor informed of their patient’s care. Evaluation and progress reports will always be sent in a timely manner. Patients will always be referred back to their doctor regarding questions, concerns or additional needs.

We are recognized as a leader in Advanced Medical Massage in Suffolk County, Long Island. Massage therapists recognize us as specialists, due to our ongoing on-site training. This type of work is often the answer regarding Pain, Injury and Disease. We offer many different Advanced Techniques and Types of Massage. We are an Official Recommeded Community Provider for Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

 

 
WORKING "HAND IN HAND" WITH OTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
Medical professionals are becoming more knowledgeable about the benefits of Massage Therapy and Manual Lymph Drainage. Primary Medical Doctors, Internists, Orthopedists, Neurologists, Chiropractors, etc. are prescribing Massage Therapy for treatment of injury, pain and illness. Research has proven that Massage Therapy has been shown to promote healing of all types and therefore, is now earning itself a place in the traditional medical world. Many of these Health Care Providers are encouraging their patients to utilize Massage Therapy as a form of treatment.
 
Why Refer Patients to Hands on HealthCare?
Initial Evaluation and Progress Reports will always be sent to you in a timely manner; enabling you to keep up to date on your patient's care.

Patients will always be referred back to you regarding their continued care.

You will provide your patients with a full range of therapeutic care by building a relationship with a professional, qualified Massage Therapist.

You will be able to offer your No-Fault and Worker's Compensation another alternative form of pain relief that is usually a covered benefit.

We offer a Non-Participating HMO rate when accompanied by a prescription.

30 minute sessions are more typical than 1 hour sessions-Keeping costs down. (Often equivalent to less than 2 co-pays and yet we often offer so much more than other providers.)

Your patients will know immediately if HOHCMT is helping. They will feel better for longer periods of time between visits, either with a reduction of the amount of pain or less pain for longer periods or even both! It's simple, each session will last longer and longer, that's what re-educating a muscle is all about!

Your patients want Massage Therapy. Refer them to someone you know you can entrust their care to, and who also wants to work together for their mutual benefit.

OUR GOAL IS TO GET PATIENTS IN FOR MEDICAL MASSAGE, GET THEM BETTER AND GET THEM OUT! THIS IS HOW WE BUILT OUR REPUTATION...NO LINGERING, NO EXCESSIVE VISITS!
There is a difference between helping someone FEEL better (sedative massage) and helping them GET better, (re-educating the muscle.) We understand the difference and so will the patients!

INSURANCE

 
We accept most No-Fault Insurance, sometimes referred to Auto Injury Massage. We are a provider for some HMO's. Please contact us to see if we are a provider for your particular HMO. We suggest that you call your insurance carrier to find out if Massage Therapy is a covered benefit when given by a Licensed Massage Therapist. If it is, find out if there are any requirements, such as a prescription. Should you find that Massage Therapy is covered, we will call to confirm it with your carrier. We now offer a NON-PARTICIPATING HMO RATE! In order to qualify, please obtain a prescription from your doctor. It is the same prices as the 6 session package rate, without buying the package. Please call the office for details.

DEFINING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDICAL AND THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

 
Very often there can be a fine line between medical and therapeutic massage therapy. For instance, general discomfort in an area usually responds very well to a therapeutic session. If pain or discomfort was due to a tight, over stimulated muscle, you can expect to feel better after the session. Often it is a terrific jumpstart to getting better. However, very often, the muscle and soft tissue need to be re-educated. This will enable them to get and stay better. An example would be a short, contracted muscle being re-taught to stay properly lengthened, thereby allowing proper blood flow, nerve innervations, full range of motion and a decrease in pain or discomfort. Medical geared massage incorporates many of the same techniques as therapeutic massage, along with more advanced modalities. The goal of medical techniques is to produce permanent changes or in some cases, such as paraplegia, to maintain the health of the tissue. We measure the results of medical massage by noting a reduction of pain or discomfort for longer periods of time between sessions. Below you will find a general guideline outlining the major differences between medical and therapeutic massage. However, I strongly recommend asking the advice of your therapist or if you have any reason to believe that medically geared massage would be more beneficial to you than therapeutic massage, please don’t hesitate to arrange for a consultation. A consultation will consist of reviewing your medical history, a hands-on evaluation and a determination as to whether we believe that medical geared massage sessions would be in your best interest. We do not charge for consultations.

*Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot. Much like a highly fluid, elastic body stocking, it functions without interruption. Fascia comes together at the end of muscles to become tendons, which attach to bones. It has been estimated that if every structure of the body except the fascia were removed, the body would retain its shape. A malfunction of one of the body’s systems due to trauma, poor posture, or inflammation can cause a binding, impinging or adhering of the fascia either to itself or to another body structure such as a muscle, bone or organ. This results in an abnormal pressure on any or all of the body’s components. Binding and restrictions in one area will affect other parts and areas of the body, similar to pulling on one end of a sweater, another area will be affected. The treatment used to treat myofascial restrictions is referred to as Myofascial Release.

**Trigger points are accumulations of waste products around a nerve receptor. Trigger points form in muscles and/or fascia, which has been overused or injured. They can present themselves as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins and needles, etc. Active trigger points are those, which cause discomfort. Latent trigger points wait silently in the muscle for a future stress to activate them. It is common to attribute this discomfort to other conditions. The treatment used to treat trigger points is referred to as Trigger Point Therapy.

We also offer cozy "Couples Rooms" - which are transformed to accommodate the two of you or more!

YOUR PERSONALIZED TREATMENT PLAN

A personalized treatment plan is designed just for you! Rather than a massage "routine", we determine a personalized treatment plan specifically geared towards your needs. The treatment strategy will take into account your problem area, your general health, your time constraints, affordability and of course, your desired goals. Pain vs. discomfort vs. tightness are all considered. Most No-fault insurance will cover this type of massage work.

We will try to pull together information to create an understanding of why you are experiencing particular symptoms and how massage therapy may or may not help. This is not a diagnosis. It is more like putting a puzzle together. Many variables are taken into account. Some examples would be, the health of the tissue involved, how long this problem has existed, etc.

Massage Therapy has many wonderful general health benefits, but if you have a specific goal, such as symptomatic relief from a health related condition, then this would be the time to find out if massage can help you.

Treatment methods and goals may change. We will re-evaluate your personalized treatment plan as your state of health changes. We may find that with time, fewer sessions are needed, and different methods need to be used, etc. Again, there is no massage "routine".

Many times a Massage Therapy session can be 30 minutes long and involves doing specific, focused work. Very often, a patient will benefit from more frequent sessions, such as two thirty minutes sessions, rather than a single one hour session. Of course, this will depend on the person and the ailment that they are trying to resolve. One-hour sessions can be wonderful, but they are not always necessary in order to meet a specific goal.

A one-hour full body massage can enhance your general health and well being. This is enough time for a deeply relaxing session and possibly enough time to pay special attention to a problem area. One and half-hours will consist of a full body massage and focused work on a particular problem area, as well.

Having a personalized treatment plan will allow you to manage your own health. It will allow you to gain some control over your sense of well being. It will allow a partnership in which we work together toward specific goals and is designed just for you!

We offer a series of "prevenative maintenance" sessions
.These discounted series allow you to come in for 'regular tune-ups', instead of waiting for a problem to occur or recur. We encourage you to take good care of your health and we are willing to 'lend a hand', by discounting our rates and therefore, making it more affordable. We encourage you to take advantage of these packages!

Often some of the benefits that you obtain from your session can be applied at home. These benefits may include new breathing techniques, gentle stretches, and different methods you can use to help release tension, whether it is emotional or muscular.

YOUR SESSION

BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER

Prior to each session
For maximum comfort and benefit, avoid heavy eating for two hours prior to treatment. Please make sure you have a proper fluid intake the day of the massage. Your body will respond better to the work and if need be, more accomplishments can be expected. Caffeine and alcohol intake should be avoided. Please avoid wearing jewelry that will be time consuming to remove. Be prepared to put long hair up and out of the way. Please obtain any relevant medical or test reports regarding your condition. It is of Extreme Importance that you note any changes since your last visit including, but not limited to, a change of medications or level of pain or stiffness. Should you have any of the following, (Contraindications) please call ahead of time to make sure massage is appropriate: INFLAMMATION, SEVERE PAIN, OPEN CUTS, BRUISES, BURNS, HEADACHE, SKIN RASH, SUNBURN, FEVER, COLD OR FLU OR DIARRHEA.
Prior to Your Visit All Clients Will Need to Fill Out Specific Forms
These forms can be submitted directly through this website, without the need to print. Or, they can also be submitted through our Smart Phone App. You can find our App in the Apple Store and the Droid Store by searching for Hands On HealthCare Massage.


First Visit
Relaxation / De-Stress form of Massage Therapy

Your medical history will be discussed with the Massage Therapist. You will be asked if you have a particular area you would like the therapist to concentrate on, such as your lower back.

Massage Therapy for a Specific Condition
Your medical history will be thoroughly discussed in addition to current medications, the reason for seeking massage therapy, etc. Insurance information will be taken, if applicable. Any medical reports or test reports that are relevant to your care should be brought with you and will be discussed. A Range of Motion Evaluation will be done if necessary. An individual, personalized treatment plan will be created.

All Visits
We will discuss your progress, how you are feeling and how you've have been since our last session. The therapist will leave the room while you disrobe. You will relax on the table, covering yourself with a fresh sheet or towel. All linens are changed between sessions. You should feel comfortable at all times. If at any point you are uncomfortable, please let the therapist know. The temperature in the room, the lights and the noise level should all be pleasant. You will be warmly draped at all times, except for the area being worked on. We will use Jojoba as a lubricant rather than oil.

The massage should feel comfortable at all times. The work will always be within your comfort level. However, should it be necessary to do deeper work or trigger point work, and the therapist feels it may cause some discomfort, you will be advised ahead of time. It will be your decision whether or not to use this method for treatment.

During the massage, you may choose to just close your eyes and relax or you may choose to talk. It is up to you. If the therapist feels it is necessary to discuss her/his findings during the massage, she/he will, otherwise we can discuss it afterwards. Please keep in mind, that muscles can sometimes be like minds, "difficult to read." We will try our best, but you ultimately know what feels good and what doesn't. If you even think the therapist is getting close to making you uncomfortable, let her/him know. She/he might need to go about doing the work differently.

The therapist will leave the room after the massage so that you may change in private. It is very important that you get up slowly and take your time. Sometimes massage can cause a little light- headedness. Re-orient yourself. Take your time. We will then discuss your session and follow-up care. We will discuss your treatment plan.


After Your Session
Drink extra fluids that do not contain caffeine or alcohol. This will help prolong the effects of the massage. The fluids will help the muscles stay "looser" longer. In addition, it will help flush the accumulated chemicals that were released. The work consists of working the muscles. It can sometimes feel like a work out for you as well. Feeling a little sore afterwards is not uncommon. Having a proper fluid intake will keep this to a minimum. Being a little sore is different than feeling achy or having pain. Any aches or pain should be reported immediately to your doctor!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are massage therapists being accepted on insurance provider panels?
As health plans recognize the efficacy of massage and its value, as well as the competency of massage therapists, the number of therapists on insurance provider panels is rapidly increasing.

How do I determine what type of massage therapy my patients should have and whether they need to see someone who specializes in a particular massage or touch technique?
The best approach is to find a qualified, professional massage therapist who can determine and/or recommend massage appropriate for the situation.

What does a massage therapist do that a physical therapist usually does not?

These techniques may include, but are not limited to soft tissue manipulation, active and passive stretching, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. Application of hot and cold therapies is permitted when necessary. Massage Therapy does not consist of strengthening the muscles or exercise. Licensed Massage Therapists do not diagnose, however they may include assessments, such as a range of motion evaluation, in order to monitor changes and or goals. Massage therapists have extensive training specific to their field. Physical therapists have training in basic massage, but not the specialized education of massage therapists.

No, with the exception of No-Fault and Worker's Comp, who require a prescription for billing purposes. However, a script is always helpful, so that we know exactly what you recommend and for which diagnosis. Massage therapists may provide services that lead to improved health and muscle function, but they do not diagnose medical diseases or disorders. They evaluate patients/clients in terms of health and disease in order to know what massage technique should be used and when to make referrals to other health care practitioners.

MASSAGE THERAPY TECHNIQUES 

Physician Prescribed Manual Therapy
A system of manually applied techniques designed to reduce pain, establish normal tissue tension, create a positive tissue environment and to normalize the movement of the musculoskeletal system. PPMT (Physician Prescribed Manual Therapy) is a result oriented treatment that is specifically designed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed and prescribed by a Physician or other Licensed Health Care Provider. PPMT may also include techniques such as Neuromuscular Re-education, Trigger Point Work, etc. PPMT is manual therapy to the PRIMARY area of the client's chief complaint. The PPMT protocol involves several progressive steps or stages of treatment that attempt to correct abnormal conditions affecting the joint complex.

 
Medical Massage
This type of massage focuses on treatments of injuries, pathologies and rehabilitation. The target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Very often sessions may include other manual therapy techniques as well.
 
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is an area of a muscle that refers pain sensations to other parts of the body. Trigger Point Therapy applies pressure to these points in order to deactivate them leading to immediate release of tension and improved muscular functioning. This work is based upon the trigger point research and manuals of Dr. Janet Travell, President Kennedy’s personal physician. Sometimes this work is incorporated into other styles of massage therapy such as neuromuscular therapy (NMT.)  See Separate Article on Trigger Point Therapy. This work is only done by our Advanced Medical Massage Therapists.

 

Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is used for pain relief and specific problems. Structural and postural imbalances are identified through an initial postural assessment. These are then addressed through systematic and site specific massage. There are five principles to Neuromuscular Therapy: Postural Distortion, Biomechanical Dysfunctions, Trigger Points, Nerve Compression/Entrapment, Ischemia. This work is only done by our Advanced Massage Therapists.

 

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia (a complex supportive web throughout the body that affects all components of the musculoskeletal, nervous and visceral systems) then releasing bonds between fascia, integument and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equilibrioception. Myofascial release usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions or by skin rolling. It is used to evaluate and treat restrictions in the body's connective tissue. Myofascial release can be used to treat chronic pain, injuries, general aches and pains. Plantar Fasciitis, Myofascial Pain Disorder and Fibromyalgia are common conditions treated with Myofascial Release.  This work is only done by our Advanced Massage Therapists.

 
*Manual Lymph Drainage

MLD, is a gentle lymphatic massage technique used to clear up blockages in the lymphatic system allowing lymph to flow more freely. The lymphatic system is a series of ducts, nodes and organs that balances the body's fluid levels. It also supplies the body with important immune cells. When this system becomes blocked, swelling the blocked area occurs. The therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions such as lymphedema, burns, fluid retention, lymph node removal, allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic mastitis, and headaches. During a Manual Lymphatic Drainage session the therapist works on the skin directly with no massage lotion or oil. The patient may stay fully dressed.

 

Oncology Massage
Offers a beneficial touch to cancer patients without making their conditions worse. The focus of oncology massage is generally on creating a gentle, nurturing environment for the patient, allowing the patient to relax.
 
Breast Massage
Massaging the breast tissue, once thought to be too sexual in nature, now is a treatment for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. The ribs under the breasts and along the sides of the breast need to be cleared of toxin buildup. The sternum, clavicle and armpit area are addressed to facilitate lymph flow. Massage can also be used to assist in recovery of mastectomies and breast surgeries. See Article on Proactive Self Care for Breast Health


Swedish Massage Therapy
This is the most common type of massage therapy in the United States. A collection of techniques designed for relaxation, using massage oils and long, slow strokes. Many of the therapeutic effects include increased circulation, increased flexibility, removal of lactic acid and toxins, relaxes nervous system, and stimulates the skin. Techniques can be modified to treat injuries and muscular related problems.

 
*Aromatherapy Massage
Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy with the addition of one or more scented plant oils called essential oils to address specific needs. The massage therapist can select oils that are relaxing, energizing, stress-reducing, balancing, etc. One of the most common essential oils used in aromatherapy massage is lavender. Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to stress-related conditions or conditions with an emotional component.

 

* Hot Soothing Stone Massage
Heated, smooth stones are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance energy centers in the body. The massage therapist may also hold stones and apply gentle pressure with them. The warmth is comforting. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle tension but prefer lighter massage. We use the stones as extensions of our hands and make sure not only that the stones are used, but our hand strokes compliment them.

 

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.

 
Pregnancy Massage
Yes, we have those special tables with removable belly and breast recesses!
Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman's body during the massage, and how to modify techniques. Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The following guidelines have been established by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. A woman in any of these categories should obtain a release from her primary care provider before receiving a massage. 1) The pregnancy is high risk, i.e., the mother has used fertility methods to get pregnant or has had difficulty getting pregnant naturally, 2) She has miscarried in the first trimester of previous pregnancies, 3) She has a cardiac disorder (heart or pulmonary problems), 4) She has a history of problems in pregnancy, 5) There is a multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets, etc.), 6) The mother is under age 20 or over 35, 7) The mother has asthma, 8) The mother has been exposed to illegal drugs. Only our therapists with additional training in Pre-natal Massage will work on Pregnant woman with pain.

 

Reflexology
Reflexology involves applying pressure to certain points on the foot that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Reflexology is very relaxing, especially for people who stand on their feet all day or just have tired, achy feet. Specific thumb movements are utilized.

 

Sports Massage
Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. However, you don't have to be a professional athlete to have one-it's also used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn't on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance. A combination of techniques is used. The strokes are generally faster than Swedish massage. Facilitated stretching is a common technique. It helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility.

 

*Homeopathy Massage
Homeopathy means to treat with something that produces an effect similar to the suffering. Remedies are made with diluted mixtures of plant substances that when given full strength may cause the problem or imbalance. The higher the dilution the stronger the remedy. Symptoms are the attempts of the body to heal itself. Repressing them with drug therapy causes the root cause to remain. Homeopathy is not the same as Naturopathic Medicine. Our homeopathic massage oil contains eight different remedies at a 30x strength. Each of the remedies helps relieve discomfort from pain stemming from various causes.

 

*Ashiatsu Barefoot Deep Tissue Therapy
(Ashi means “foot” and atsu means “pressure”) is a massage technique that dates back as far as the 12th century. Massaging the body with the feet is a hallmark of bodywork throughout India, Japan, China, Thailand, Africa and the Philippines. In today’s more Americanized version of Barefoot Ashiatsu, the therapist uses an overhead system of hand-held bars for balance. Clean, soft feet will apply deep compression and long flowing strokes to bring about structural change in chronically tight muscle tissue, while invoking a state of deep relaxation.
