The Many Benefits of Massage Therapy
Functional Therapy Unlimited’s Massage Therapy services can be easily provided at home, residential facilities, or at our FTU corporate office.
All of our Functional Massage Therapists go through extensive training on specific techniques and requirements of working with disabled individuals.
Massage Therapy addresses the physical aspects of injury as well as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
FTU’s Functional Massage Therapists provide education for self-care and independence, showing clients how to address their injuries between sessions, preparing them for eventual discharge.
Relaxation may be one benefit of massage. Goals are also established to address pain level & frequency, pain medication use, flexibility, and the performance of activities of daily living.
