Massage Therapy

So, a lot of times we may experience an injury due to a fall, car accident, or some other type of accident. And, sometimes you just wake up in the morning and you’re wondering what in the world is going on. So, let’s first talk about what you may experience. You may experience pain, tightness, pain when you’re trying to bend over or pain with coughing or sneezing.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Your massage therapist will use long, stroking motions in the direction of your heart to increase your blood flow by “opening” the blood vessels. This ensures your muscles are getting enough nutrients and oxygen. Your body will also remove disease-causing toxins more efficiently.
Using kneading and friction, your massage therapist will treat existing injuries like adhesions, which is scar tissue that can bind muscle tissue together. This can cause stiffness, limit flexibility, and cause pain. By relaxing the muscles, you can experience relief.
When adhesions are “broken up” you now have a wider range of motion. To help prevent injuries and get the most of your workouts, it’s recommended to use a combination of massage and stretching.
There’s nothing like an expert massage in tranquil setting to relax you, physically and mentally. In fact, massage therapy can lower the level of the stress hormone cortisol in your body. This can reduce or eliminate tension headaches, boost your energy, and help you sleep better.
Another benefit of lower cortisol levels: your immune system grows stronger. That means you’ll be sick less and enjoy life more.
Swedish massage can help manage chronic pain caused by conditions like sciatica and osteoarthritis Tell your massage therapist about the parts of your body that are in pain, so she can target those areas using a stroking motion to increase blood circulation and smooth out muscle tension – both of which help reduce pain

The Benefits of Prenatal Massage Therapy

Prenatal massage is perfect for reducing anxiety, relieving joint pains and muscle aches, improving lymphatic and blood circulation, and generally reducing the discomfort associated with the physical and mental changes which occur during pregnancy. Reduced back pain, reduced joint pain, improved circulation, reduced edema, reduced muscle tension, improved oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles, reduced stress and anxiety, and better sleep are all benefits of prenatal massage. To maximize benefits we recommend regularly scheduled massages beginning after the first trimester in your pregnancy.
