Pairing Massage with Meditation

When it comes to your ultimate relaxation, you have many avenues to take. One of those ways is by pairing your massage with meditation. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers small forms of meditation before, during, and after your medical massage. Whether you want to increase relaxation, improve your health and reduce pain, or just become more reflective in your day-to-day life, massage and meditation can help. Learn about the different ways pairing massage with meditation can help you on different levels.

Meditation Through Sound Healing

One of the easiest ways to meditate is through sound healing. Sound healing uses sounds from different sources, mainly tuning forks, Tibetan singing bowls, and calming sounds of nature, to help re-set the chakras in your body.

Because it’s so important to set the right tone going into your massage, Aruna will start each session with a miniature version of sound healing therapy. Use the time to meditate and set your intention for your massage. It can help you feel more relaxed and feel less pain following your appointment.

Focus on Healing with Massage

Massage has many benefits, including the ability to help with your healing. The majority of the massages that Aruna offers focus on healing and reducing pain. For instance, a lymphatic drainage massage helps to boost your lymphatic system following surgery and helps to remove built up waste and toxins. Additionally, cupping therapy can help increasing blood flow and circulation, which can help with lowering blood pressure and reducing pain in places with cup placement. Many times, people find these medical massage types to be relaxing and they let their mind wander. This can present a time for meditation as well.

Reduce Your Overall Stress Levels

When pairing massage with meditation, you can start to feel less stress. Massage is known for reducing stress hormones in your body, which in turn can also help in reducing pain you may feel. Following your massage, take a few minutes to reflect on how you feel. Regularly getting in touch with yourself can help with reducing stress and meditation is a way to achieve that.

Take Part in Group or Individual Sessions

While massage is usually done in a one-on-one setting, the sound healing sessions can be done on an individual basis or in a group. One of the great things about sound healing in a group session is that everyone hears the same sounds, but the way each person’s body interprets the sounds are completely different. Your body knows what frequencies it needs to latch onto in order to feel better and it could be completely different from the others in the group. But as you all leave the session, you may all feel more relaxed and balanced.

If you’re looking for different ways to promote inner healing, pairing massage with meditation is a great place to start. Whether you choose the mini sound healing session before each massage you receive or have a full sound healing session to re-set your body’s chakras, you can help yourself feel better in a variety of ways. since 2008, Aruna has helped patients on their pain free journeys through medical massage, sound healing, and more.
