Medical Massage and Cancer Care for Ages 2 and Up

If you are here, you may be searching for more natural solutions to your chronic or acute pain, or perhaps you are looking for an alternative therapy to integrate into your existing medical treatments.  At Essential Medical Massage, you can expect the therapist to provide a high quality of care, giving more focused and detailed attention to the aches and pains that may be associated with trauma, injury, surgery or illness.  
Massage therapy, including medical massage, is truly much more than a luxury—it is a vital part of self-care that has a positive ripple effect on us as we work, play, and care for others.  Just some of its proven health benefits include decreased pain levels, improvement in sleep, reduced frequency of headaches, greater range of motion, and lessened side effects of chemotherapy.  Undoubtedly, it can have a positive affect on you and your child, and everyone from the seasoned athlete, to the senior with Alzheimer's. 

Phoebe Courcy, LMT, has over 12 years of experience in the massage field, with certifications in Medical Massage (2006) and Pediatric Massage (2014).  Additional training includes oncology massage/cancer care, manual lymphatic drainage, myofascial release, orthopedic bodywork, neuromuscular therapy and various other modalities.  During each treatment session, you can expect to receive an empathetic and listening ear with an educated touch that isn't simply 'going through the motions'.  Through the combination of assessment and experience, Phoebe strives to provide a unique healing experience while providing the most results-oriented massage therapy possible.
