Beat the Summer Heat with Ice Massage
Alleviate Pain and Inflammation with Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy, or therapeutic cold therapy such as icing, is an effective method of r elieving symptoms caused from sprains, strains, bruises, and conditions like tendinitis. Ice massage is an inexpensive way to reduce excess fluid that gathers during the inflammation phase while targeting damaged soft tissues that cause pain.  
At Compassion Massage, ice massage can be used in any therapeutic massage as a method to help reduce moderate to severe pain. Our clients are taught the benefits of performing ice massage  at home to decrease the intensity of pain while aiding in tissue recovery. 
In the video below, our licensed massage therapist, Abby Girouard, demonstrates how to use ice massage during these hot summer months for pain management!
