The benefits of massage therapy go beyond relaxation. Regular massage therapy treatments can effectively reduce muscle tension, improve circulation and flexibility, reduce or eliminate joint pain, and improve immune system functioning.
Deep tissue massage, cupping, and craniosacral therapy are some of the many techniques that our massage therapists utilize to customize an individual treatment plan to suit each of our clients’ needs.
Summit’s registered massage therapists have completed 2200 hours of formalized training and have successfully treated patients for over two and half decades combined.

Frequently asked questions
Is massage therapy covered by benefits?
Most benefits will cover massage therapy from a registered massage therapist but we recommend double-checking with your insurance provider prior to making an appointment.
How does a massage with a registered massage therapist at your clinic differ from a massage at a spa?
Spa treatments primarily focus on external relaxation methods like calming decor, ambient music, and scented massage oils. Spa massages typically use a one-size-fits-all approach that may temporarily reduce pain and tension but aren’t necessarily part of a long-term rehabilitation strategy.
Therapeutic massages performed at a clinic (like ours) factor in your current concerns, your medical history, and your massage preferences to plan an appropriate treatment to relieve both pain and stress. A registered massage therapist at our clinic can assess if a massage is an appropriate treatment, or if another treatment method would be better suited.
What are the benefits of a therapeutic massage at a clinic?
The benefits of visiting a clinic (like ours) for your massage is that our registered massage therapists are familiar with the different modalities of massage therapy, and tailor each patient’s treatment accordingly. What clinics lack in over-the-top spa ambience, they make up for in specialization and treatment styles that truly make a difference to your long term health and mobility.
For example, the massage given to an elderly client with arthritis is different from the massage given to a competitive athlete with a muscle injury. Massage techniques for patients with injuries, clients seeking relaxation, and expectant mothers all require different kinds of care.
