What is a Medical Massage?

A medical massage is a specialized type of massage that focuses on problem areas of your body you may have. Aruna will listen to areas where you may have pain and decide on the best type of massage to ease it. Depending on the massage type, it may focus on one specific area of your body instead of helping you feel better overall like a relaxation massage does.

Before your appointment, Aruna may ask if different areas of your body hurt more than others. It’s important to answer these questions honestly, as it gives Aruna a chance to figure out what causes you problems. She’ll use those answers to determine the best type of medical massage for you. Each of the massages and therapies are tailored to your specific needs, so giving truthful answers is crucial.

Do You Offer Only Medical Massage?

No! Aruna offers many types of massages, not just medical massages. If you are looking for ways to feel less stress and anxiety in your life, a relaxation massage can help.

Aruna may use other tools to aid in your massage, including bamboo and essential oils. Both tools can help you relax and feel less anxiety in your daily life.

Are you dealing with swelling or not feeling like yourself, especially after having surgery? There may be a reason for that happening. That’s where a lymphatic drainage massage can help you feel better. What does a lymphatic drainage massage do? This specialized type of medical massage helps to remove buildup in your body.

What is a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

A lymphatic drainage massage is a specialized type of medical massage that works to kickstart your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system is part of your immune system, so it’s important that it functions how it should. For certain reasons, your lymphatic system sometimes gets a little sluggish. When your system is sluggish, it means that toxins and waste normally removed from your body aren’t leaving as fast as they normally do. When you schedule a lymphatic drainage massage, Aruna will use special types of strokes and touches during your massage. The purpose of that is to help stimulate and kickstart your lymphatic system to remove waste and toxins.

  • Increase blood flow and lower blood pressure

When Should I Have the Massage?

There’s no set time of when you should have a lymphatic drainage massage. But, if you’ve recently had surgery, you’ll want to wait to have a massage until your doctor says it’s okay. From there, you can have appointments scheduled. Once you start to feel better, you may not choose to have as many appointments. Instead, you may opt to look into other medical massage types to help you feel better.

What are Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage has many benefits to help you feel better. As mentioned above, the massage type helps to increase blood flow and circulation, which helps to lower your blood pressure. But there are many other benefits from the massage as well, including:

  • An improved immune system (as toxins and waste are removed from your body)
