Therapeutic Medical Massage

Now that school is back in session, it’s time for athletes to think about ways they can help improve their performance overall. By incorporating different forms of massage into their warm up and cool down, they reduce the risk of injury while improving mobility and range of motion. One way to achieve this is through cupping for athletes. Cupping for athletes presents many benefits that may help them perform better while also preventing certain types of injuries.

Cupping Existed Before 2016 Olympics

Many people first noticed cupping with Michael Phelps and some of the other athletes during the 2016 summer Olympics. However, many massage therapists have used cupping techniques for far longer periods of time. In fact, cupping has been around for hundreds of years. Only recently has it risen to the forefront of people’s minds.

Even if you aren’t an athlete, cupping therapy presents many different benefits. If you suffer from certain chronic pain disorders, cupping helps reduce the appearance of symptoms. While you’ll still have them, they won't be as noticeable to you, helping you live a fuller life.

Alleviate Inflammation

If your athlete wants to decrease alleviation, cupping therapy is a great way to start. Through the suction of the cup to skin, fresh blood and fluid from your lymphatic system go into the area. This helps increase the circulation in your body. The increased circulation helps flush out any toxins from your body, thus helping your immune system. Overall, if you tend to experience pain from a workout or for an athletic event, cupping for athletes may help reduce the pain felt while providing other benefits to keep you going.

Decrease Recovery Time

To your student athlete, playing time is everything to them. That’s one of the reasons they get upset when an injury occurs. To limit the likelihood an injury following an event or match, turn to cupping therapy. While it’s important to follow all orders from your doctor, especially when it comes to physical therapy, cupping for athletes is a great therapy to use in addition to doctor-ordered treatments. When combining the two and following the recommendations from both programs, you can decrease the amount time your athlete isn’t competing.

Increase Flexibility and Range of Motion

Finally, cupping therapy helps to increases your athletes range of motion and overall flexibility. As we’ve already discussed, the suctioning helps improve blood flow and circulation. With more oxygen reaching your child’s muscles, it helps their overall workout. Through that, you may find your child has a better range of motion and more flexibility in their movements. If your child is feeling stiff in certain areas, cupping for athletes may help increase their flexibility.

Cupping for athletes presents many different benefits overall. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, we offer many different services that benefit athletes. In addition to cupping therapy, we also offer pre-sports massages and post-sports massages.

When you want to feel better, you’ll turn to anything to help you feel better. If you’re tired of taking pain medication to mask your pain, you may want to turn to other kinds of therapies. One of those therapies is massage. Alternatively, if you’re looking for new ways to relax, massage can help as well. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna specializes in both relaxation massages and medical massages. If your current pain management treatments and relaxation techniques aren’t working for you, turn to natural therapies like massage to help you feel better.

Relaxation Massage

Many people have a hard time relaxing after stressful events in their lives. Incorporating massage into your self-care routine can make a better you. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers plenty of massages designed for relaxation.

One of the more common massage types is a Swedish massage. In addition to increased relaxation, a Swedish massage has many other health benefits. Some of the benefits of Swedish massages include a reduced stress level and pain relief.

Another massage that’s common for relaxation is a hot stone massage. Just like the name suggests, hot stones are placed on various points of the patient’s body. The purpose of the stones are to increase the chakras and meridians of the body.

Medical Massage

Medical massage is necessary if you experience pain or sports injuries. By properly exercising and stretching before a sporting event, you decrease the chances of muscle injuries. Adding massage to your pre-event and post-event routine can help with sports injuries.

If your pain stems from something else, Aruna can help. By discussing every symptom before the session starts, Aruna can better develop a treatment plan by using massage and providing at-home stretches and exercises. Aruna is a certified fitness trainer, so the exercises she provides will help in the long run.

Other Natural Therapies Offered

Depending on what you’re seeking treatment for, Aruna may be able to help. In addition to massage for relaxation and medical reasons, there are other treatment options available.

One of the more popular holistic treatments offered is aromatherapy. With aromatherapy, essential oils and herbs are used to help restore the body to a normal setting. There are two methods with aromatherapy and essentials. One method is inhalation. The other method is that essential oils are applied directly to the skin. Both methods aid in healing. The essential oils may also play a part in any of the massages you receive for maximum results.

Do you find that after sitting at a desk all day your posture and alignment is off? Many people experience this issue. You may think there’s nothing that can be done about posture in the office. However, there is a type of massage that can help ease the discomfort that stems from sitting all day. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, we offer chair massages. Whether you come to Aruna or Aruna comes to you, a chair massage to reverse the effects of sitting hunched over a computer goes a long way.

What is a Chair Massage?

A chair massage is a massage that’s performed in a chair. Because you sit in a chair all day at work, your shoulder and neck muscles are incredibly tight. With a chair massage, the shoulder and neck muscles are worked out to loosen them. This leads to a relaxed feeling for the person getting the massage. This gives the person and their muscles the chance to finally relax after hours of hard work.

Are There Additional Benefits?

Just like a regular massage, there are typically other benefits associated with a chair massage. Firstly, if the idea of a massage is intimidating or daunting, the chair massage is a great introduction to massage. Because people remain clothed, it’s a great way to ease in to getting massages. Secondly, chair massages allow for increased oxygen in the muscles. This aids in increasing workplace productivity. That’s what makes the chair massage great for busy professionals. Additionally, massage schools don’t focus on chair massages as much as other types of massages. By finding a chair massage therapist, you know they have additional schooling to perform this type of massage.

Does it Have to Take Place in the Mason Office?

A chair massage can be performed anywhere as long as the massage chair is available. So that means a chair massage can be done in the Mason, Ohio, office or wherever your office is located in the Greater Cincinnati area. So, whether you want an individual chair massage in the Therapeutic Medical Massage office or your company’s office, arrangements can be made.

How Often are Chair Massage Events?

If you’re looking for a chair massage event at your office, they can be scheduled whenever it suits your schedule. If you have many hardworking employees, you may want to schedule an event on a more frequent basis. Or, if it’s too hard to pin down a date once a month, quarterly dates may also be scheduled. Aruna will work with you to find the right schedule to keep your employees happy during the workday.

Eliminate the pains related to sitting in the workplace. With a chair massage in our Mason office or a scheduled event where Aruna comes to you, your posture will improve over time. If you’re looking for a quick solution to posture and alignment issues, a massage from Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage can help. Give the office a call to schedule your appointment and be prepared to talk things over with Aruna at the beginning of each session.
