The Right Massage for You

People experience pain different and in different places. That’s why your massage shouldn’t be the same as the person whose appointment is before or after yours. Because of that, your massage should be personalized to what you feel before the appointment. Typically, the type of pain or soreness you experience factors into the type of massage you receive. During your pre-appointment with Aruna, the two of you will discuss anything pertinent to the appointment. At this time, Aruna is deciding the best type of massage for you. The right type of massage entirely depends on the symptoms you describe, so it’s important to be honest about everything you feel at that moment.

Headaches

Headaches plague people for different reasons. Unfortunately for headache sufferers, there’s not a lot that can be done to reduce headache symptoms. However, massage may help. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, trigger point massages and deep tissue massages may reduce the headache symptoms you feel. Also, you can apply a little pressure near the spot where your head hurts and rub a little to help.

Back Pain

Your back goes through a lot in a day. That’s why so many Americans experience back pain. While back pain is a nuisance in every day life, a massage may help. A deep tissue massage may help loosen up your muscles, reducing the amount of pain you feel. A Swedish massage may also help, especially if hot stones are used in conjunction with the massage.

Shoulder Pain

If you don’t experience back pain, there’s a good chance you may experience shoulder pain. Just like back pain, shoulder pain happens for a variety of reasons. Incorporating a shoulder massage into your life may help you feel better in the moment while also increasing pain and flexibility in the long run.

Post-Operative Pain

Depending on the type of procedure you have, you may be able to incorporate massage into your healing plan. However, post-operative massage should only be done when a doctor says it’s okay. If you get a post-operative massage before you’re ready, you may hurt yourself more.

Pregnancy

At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers a special massage for pregnant women, those trying to get pregnant, and those who recently had a baby. To ease any discomforts you may feel, a pregnancy massage may help. Also, this is when it’s very important to be upfront and honest during your pre-massage appointment so Aruna can address any discomforts you feel.

Oncology

Finding out you have cancer can be scary. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna has a special type of massage specifically for cancer patients. During an oncology massage, she’ll use gentle touches. These massages ultimately relax you while helping you reconnect.

Having a massage is a relaxing experience, but it also helps in easing any pain or soreness you feel. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna uses massage techniques to help get you back to normal. If you feel exhausted by other types of therapies you’ve tried, turn to massage. Aruna is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Ohio who specializes in many different types of massage.
