Therapeutic Medical Massage

How does sound healing work? Sound healing works differently depending on the person who is having a sound healing session. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna specializes in sound healing therapy and starts each massage session with an abridged version of sound healing. Additionally, you can have a sound healing session in an individual setting or a group setting. Wondering how sound healing works? Read on to learn more.

What is Sound Healing?

Sound healing is a natural therapy that helps to lower stress and anxiety. It uses different tools (more on them below) to generate sounds, vibrations, and frequencies that help your brain, and by extension the rest of your body, re-set and de-stress.

It has a number of different names, including:

  • Music therapy
  • Vibrational therapy
  • Sound bathing
  • Sound meditation

Whether you have a sound healing therapy session in-person or through guided meditation, it can help re-set your energies and help you feel better overall. As mentioned above, Aruna performs individual and group sound healing therapy sessions.

What Tools are Used During Sessions?

During a sound healing session, Aruna will use different tools to make the sounds, frequencies, and vibrations. Whether the tools are used individually or to enhance the sound healing experience, they will ultimately help you feel better.

Some of the tools Aruna may use during a session include:

  • Tibetan singing bowls
  • Bamboo sticks
  • Tuning forks
  • Recorded sounds from nature

As the different sounds are played during your session, all you need to do is relax. The sounds will work with your brain to help you relax and reduce your feelings of stress and anxiety.

How Does Sound Healing Help Me?

Sound healing is known for reducing stress and anxiety for people who participate in the different sessions. The sounds, frequencies, and pitches you hear during the session help your brain relax. As your brain relaxes, it can start to produce less of specific hormones, especially cortisol, which is known as the stress hormone. The less cortisol in your body, the more relaxed you feel. Additionally, sound healing can help break through certain energy blockages you may experience, helping you feel more like your true self.

Is Sound Healing the Same for Everyone?

While everyone can participate in a sound healing session, each person will have an individualized experience during the session. For instance, if you take part in a group sound healing session, some people will hear higher frequencies while others hear lower frequencies. There’s no right or wrong way to hear the frequencies. Instead, your brain will focus on the different frequencies depending on what it needs to hear to lessen stress and anxiety. Additionally, you’ll hear different pitches and frequencies depending on the way Aruna holds the bowls in her hands.

When people think of massages, they think each of them are the same. However, there are two main types of massage: relaxation massages and medical massages. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers both main types of massage. If you’re considering a massage, you may be wondering if a medical massage or a relaxation massage is right for you. By learning about medical massage differences and relaxation massage differences, you’ll know what the right massage is for you to help you feel better and relax.

What is a Relaxation Massage?

A relaxation massage is designed to help you feel more relaxed and have less stress and anxiety in your life. These are fairly standard massages, so they won’t be tailored to fit what you’re looking for. However, they are excellent at helping you and your body relax and live a life with less stress.

The relaxation massage types offered at Therapeutic Medical Massage include:

Additionally, many of the massage types listed above can be combined with holistic aromatherapy, which can help increase the feeling of relaxation and additionally can help to reduce the stress and anxiety in your life.

What is a Medical Massage?

On the other hand, a medical massage is specifically designed to treat or alleviate a specific ailment and help you feel better. While the massage types all have general ways to help you feel better, Aruna will tailor the massage during your appointment, so it helps you feel better overall. Aruna specializes in medical massages and likes to see her patients start to feel better through regular medical massages.

Some of the popular medical massage types include:

  • Spinal reflex therapy
  • Cupping therapy
  • Lymphatic drainage massage
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Sports massage
  • MPS therapy

For each medical massage appointment, you’ll spend the first part of your appointment going over symptoms you currently feel. This will help Aruna determine the best massage for your appointment.

When is One Better Than the Other?

There’s no set time that says when you should have a relaxation massage instead of a medical massage. You want to have one over the other depending on what’s going on in your life. For example, if you feel stressed and it’s affecting your life, you may want to schedule a relaxation massage appointment. Similarly, if you have lower back pain that affects your day-to-day life, you may want to turn to cupping therapy, a type of medical massage therapy that reduces pain.

Whether you want to use your massage to relax or resolve a specific problem, a massage is a great way to help you feel better overall. By learning the medical massage differences and relaxation massage differences, you can become more knowledgeable and choose the best massage type for you. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna will work with you to choose the right massage for you based on what you currently feel. Whether you need a relaxation massage or a medical massage, Aruna is here to help. Schedule your massage appointment today.

Are you feeling stressed? Finding ways to relax during our everyday lives is a difficult challenge. Jobs, big life events, school, and more can make life feel very overwhelming. Stress can have a negative impact on your physical and mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, it is crucial to find ways to reduce the amount of stress in your life. A great way to reduce stress is to invest in getting a massage.

A relaxation massage is a whole-body, hands-on treatment that uses kneading and long relaxing strokes to help you relax. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna brings ancient massage techniques to her practice through a variety of massage options. For example, some options include bamboo fusion massage, heated stone therapy, aromatherapy, and the better-known Swedish massage. The following are ways that a massage can reduce stress in your everyday life.

Gives You Time for Yourself

One way that a massage can reduce the amount of stress that you have in your life is that it gives you time to focus on yourself. It is so easy to get caught up in the daily events and stresses in our lives. We all have responsibilities and obligations. Therefore, it is common for people to prioritize these things over their own wellbeing. Investing in a massage allows you to have a set amount of time to relax and take care of yourself. By taking time to breathe and relax, you will reduce the amount of stress in your life.

Physically Relaxes Your Body

Another way that a massage can reduce the amount of stress you have in your life is that it will physically relax your body. A massage can loosen your muscles. It can also release built up tension from the effects of stress in your body. If an individual wants to relax after a stressful day, then that person might be a good candidate for a deep tissue massage. Please feel free to inform your massage therapist if the pressure the therapist applies is comfortable or not.

Relieves Pain 

A massage can reduce the amount of stress you have in your life by relieving physical pain that you may be having. Sitting in an office chair or doing physical activity can cause chronic pain. Aruna utilizes targeted therapeutic medical massage techniques including SRT, PNMT, TMJ and deep tissue massage. These methods have been clinically shown to significantly reduce pain and promote healing from several complications of many diseases and conditions. 

Investing in a massage is an excellent way to reduce the amount of stress that you have in your everyday life, which means that you can start to live a less stressful life. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, there are many different types of medical massage that can help you feel better. Whether you’re looking for ways to relax, reduce pain, or improve your posture, medical massage can help. Interested in medical massage? Call the office to schedule your appointment today.
