Massage Therapist Near Me
Functional Orthopedic Medical Massage for Pain Relief!
Looking for Massage Therapist Near Me?
Total Integrated Therapy offers Medical Massage Therapy, Sports Massage, and Deep Tissue Massage Bodywork to provide lasting relief from stress, tension, and physical pain. Your massage therapist will include assessment of the body to isolate the underlying cause of pain and to end the stress that can make the pain worse by straightening the body with gravity. Clients report freedom in mobility and a continued decrease of discomfort with a shorter recovery period.
Orthopedic Bodywork, Sports Massage, and Medical Massage are holistic approaches that look at and integrates the complete person. When people produce stress, they tend to express it physically in the body. Every part of the body is affected by the stress and the things we do or don’t do. Every tissue, joint, ligament, muscle, gland, bone, organ, system, and cell is affected by our individual total load of stress. This, in turn, affects how we feel and respond. How we feel affects everything else in our lives from family relationships, career & finance, health, and fitness, to hobbies and other energy-producing, life-giving activities.
People come to us for outcome-oriented, results based bodywork and emotional stress-related issues. We align the body with gravity and dissolve emotional stress that can make the discomfort worse. After a few sessions, they feel tremendous freedom, the pain has left, and they have their life back on course.
We Take Pain Away! Without Drugs and Surgery.
Total Integrated Therapy works with the entire body to get a complete release around irritated, pinched, painful or damaged joints and muscles. We restore tight, restricted tissues back to their normal, healthy resting lengths. This includes muscles, fascia, and bones to bring them back to their natural resting places.
- Working Only The Muscles = Not Enough
- Working Only The Bones = Not Enough
- Working Muscles and Bones = Enough!
We balance out fascia and muscles to align bones and loosening and flush tight congested areas. Therefore, restoring tone to overstretched neurologically hindered tissues to establish balance from back to front, on both the left and right sides, as needed. Furthermore, we break up and smooth out any relevant “tissue texture abnormalities.” We clear out the bumps, knots, and fibrous tissues and work to normalize these stressed tissues until we have a smooth, soft, and flexible tissue responding with fresh blood supply, hydration, with clear nerve pathways operating. Therefore, with the body restored and balanced, the muscles become more flexible, adaptable, and resilient and can return to normal healthy activities again.
Your Medical Massage Therapist Can Resolve These Symptoms:
- Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome
- Plantar Fasciitis and Foot Pain
- Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow
- Pelvic and Hip Pain
- Pinched Nerves and Herniated Discs

What is Medical Massage?
Medical Massage isn’t just a regular massage that you would go to for the good “experience.” This kind of massage work feels wonderful most of the time, but the intent is distinctive. While we know how to do full-body massage, your massage therapist works holistically and looks at the entire body. We don’t just work with the parts like a sore muscle, but also ligaments, tendons, fascia, bones, joints, fluid, blood, lymph, the balance and relationships between parts as a whole. It’s outcome-oriented and results-based. People arrive here to get the best outcomes, not only for a pleasant experience.
Let’s face it; being touched can feel magnificent. Especially when your massage therapist knows how to touch you better than you’ve ever been touched before. But, sometimes, massage just doesn’t feel so good, especially when there are inflamed, damaged, or painful tissues affected. So, sometimes it can be unpleasant and can take some time for recovery. However, with a skilled massage therapist with exceptional skills in touch, they can work with the tissue rather than against it with force. It all has to do with how your massage therapist works with your central nervous system, both emotionally (with Tapping Therapy) and physically.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ask The Expert
What’s the difference between conventional massage Therapy and orthopedic Bodywork, Sports Massage, or medical Message?
The chief difference is flexibility, education, and experience on the practitioner’s part and the lasting results our clients get. The other primary differentiation is that medical massage is goal or outcome-oriented. We look for the cause of discomfort. For instance, if someone has debilitating neck pain, the goal would be to figure out what is causing the pain and then address it. We want to get rid of the pain in the neck so it doesn’t return. Sometimes it requires a change of habits in what you may be doing as well. We do a lot of the same techniques in many diverse ways to produce results. It’s also a combination of knowledge, understanding with extensive experience where the typical massage requires less experience, understanding, knowledge, and training.
How frequently should I get massaged?
It depends on the circumstance. If someone needs quicker results for injury relief or chronic pain, we recommend consistent therapy for the best results. On average, under “normal” circumstances, approximately 30% use their massage therapist once a week, 49% once or twice a month, and 21% come in as desired. If someone is in constant pain, we can work more often up to three times a week, given the situation, however with an acute injury; we require at least three days of icing to allow for inflammation and swelling to subside.

How will I respond after the massage or bodywork session?
Sometimes people get uncomfortable after a massage. This is not due to damage when done correctly. Soreness is typically a biochemical response to moving about metabolic products and clearing away stagnant pockets of fluid in the tissues like lactic acid, among many others. These biochemicals can annoy receptors and prompt soreness. Massage arouses the healing and recovery process that happens after the massage, which generally occurs the day after therapy. Icing an area that has had deep treatment will decrease most inflammation and begin the healing and recovery phase and make any discomfort less noticeable.
Are their contraindications to doing massage?
- A severe flare-up of inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Local infectious or hypersensitive skin conditions
- Open sores or cuts
- Recent operation
- New burns
What if I’m pregnant?

What should I anticipate during my first massage therapy visit?
Sessions involve an assessment to determine what is producing your pain. It is suggested to dress in loose clothing for the assessment. The focus is then on restoring equilibrium, relaxing the body, and softening fixed restricted tissues to restore them back to their natural healthy resting lengths.
How long do massage sessions last?
The initial session is usually 90 minutes and involves a thorough assessment, intake, and massage therapy.
Normal sessions are typically 90-120 minutes but may vary from 2 to 4 hours, depending on your goals.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes, though, sometimes we can accommodate walk-ins.
What is the cancellation policy?
Please inform us 24 hours prior to sessions, if you are unable to attend and want to reschedule.
Do you take insurance?
No. But you can submit your claim to your insurance provider for payment.
How much do medical massages cost?
The first appointment is 90 minutes and just $180. It includes an assessment, intake, and therapy. After that, it’s only $100 an hour.
What is a licensed massage therapist?
A licensed massage therapist has completed minimum requirements to practice and has paid fees to legally practice massage in your area. The education required to be licensed in Oregon is 500 hours. Our accredited lead therapist, Dave Ryder, has over 5,000 hours of advanced training and is a nationally approved and certified instructor for Physical Therapists, LMT’s, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Health Professionals, and doctors.
Am I required to tip my massage therapist?
Tips are never expected but always appreciated. We love what we do and your tip may reflect your appreciation for our service.
Do you take group bookings?
Certainly, we love to work with couples! Reservation is needed.
Are results lasting?
Yes! It depends on everyday activity, overuse, under-use, or plain old abuse. Many pain syndromes can be mitigated in a few sessions. For instance with neck pain, shoulder pain, hip, upper and lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, strains, nerve impingement, multiple crush syndromes, headaches, scar tissue, migraines, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, TMJ, etc, these are symptoms we’ve had tremendous success with. Sometimes permanent results require changing movement habits. We can show you precisely what modifications you need to make.
