Welcome to MedicalMasaje.com.

At Medical Masaje (pronounced Medical Mah-sa-hey which means 'massage' in Spanish), we focus on a specific area of your body feeling discomfort, tension, and limited range of motion (ROM).  We service the entire east bay area: Albany, Richmond, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Richmond, Oakland, Alameda, and more! We specialize in the modalities of 'Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy' and Neurokinetic Therapy

What is Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy?

Neuromuscular therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation with the focus on treating the underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems.

What is NeuroKinetic Therapy?

NeuroKinetic Therapy is based on the premise that when an injury occurs, certain muscles “shut down” or become inhibited, forcing other muscles to become overworked. This compensation pattern can create pain or tightness.

How do they work together?

Each session starts with NeuroKinetic Therapy and begins with a series of manual muscle testing to identify the muscles that are weak or strong. This information provides the possible relational compensation between the affected muscles. Once the practitioner has  evaluated and finds the strength and/or weakness of each muscle, the source of the injury or pain are revealed. NeuroMuscular Therapy is then incorporated to ‘re- educate’ the overworked tense muscles by applying a series of therapeutic techniques.

These therapeutic techniques address:

  • Injuries caused post car accidents
  • Low back pain

  • TMJ

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Frozen Shoulder

  • Tennis  Elbows
