Where Compassion and Clinical Meet™
At Compassion Massage, our focus is to give you the highest level of care. We make your health, healing and comfort our first priority. Our therapeutic massage clinic is professionally designed to enhance relaxation the moment you walk through the door. Our clinic has resources to teach you more about your body and allows your massage therapists to teach you simple methods of self-care that will help you maintain increased mobility with less discomfort until your next treatment with us. Through our clinical process we establish, document, monitor, and evaluate the effectiveness of your treatment. Our goal is to play an integral role in your overall healthy living. We are an extension of your existing medical network. We partner with chiropractors, physical therapy centers, and other healthcare practitioners in Leominster and many of the surrounding cities in the Central Massachusetts area.
We understand that every person is unique and every condition requires a custom approach to wellness. We provide highly skilled therapeutic massage for the treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions and offer supportive care for disease management. Your first appointment will begin with a comprehensive, confidential consultation where we learn about your physical state, review assessment findings and discuss appropriate treatments from the services we offer. During our comprehensive intake process we will learn more about how you use your body, what types of repetitive motions you make, where you feel pain and stress in your body, any medical conditions you might have and medications you may be taking and how those affect massage therapy. We’ll then assess your posture and range of motion to gather information that provides us with a BIG picture of what type of massage is safe and indicated to reach your massage therapy goals.
We will also provide self-care suggestions so that healing can continue throughout your time away from our office. Our goal is to minimize further stress or injury, reduce cumulative tension and guide you towards new levels of physical awareness until we see you again.
Why we’re different
We are committed to your personal care. We listen, ask the right questions and spend time with you so that we can formulate the best clinical care plan to meet your specific needs all before you reach the massage table. Our session times provide 15 minutes before and after the appointment to connect with you. If you’ve scheduled a 60 minute massage that means you’ll receive 60 minutes of hands-on care. We factor in the additional time before and after in our schedule so that you’re never rushed. Your improvement and feedback matters to us- that’s why we follow up the week after the initial treatment to speak to you about how you’re doing since receiving massage in our office. This is an opportunity for you to share any additional feedback so that we can make your next session even better and more customized to your needs- like massage pressure, areas focused on during the treatment, room temperature, music, and products used during the massage. We also maintain comprehensive chart notes (we call it our Clinical Care Plan) for each session so that we can track your progress and the effectiveness of our treatment plan. This allows you to see any member on our staff and receive the same level of care because we’re all on the same page with your specific needs. You won’t have to spend time retelling your story or reminding us of your preferences because we’ve taken time to know you.
What we’re not
We are not a spa and we are not offering “luxury” massage services. We are in the business of caring for clients that demonstrate a true need for massage; be it from the rigors of occupational stress (nurses, firefighters, dental hygienists), highly active individuals like athletes or whether it be medically necessary to treat acute or chronic pain from injury or disease. Our clients feel good about the money they spend in our office because it enables them to live healthier, fuller lives without pain. We have clients that tell us they would not be able to do their job if it weren’t for the therapeutic massage we provide them.
We’re committed to the future
We are committed to supporting the next generation of licensed therapists. Our clinics focus on providing training and continuing education for its therapists so that they can provide the highest level of massage therapy to our clients.
