Therapeutic Medical Massage

Are you having a baby? This can be one of the most exciting times in your life. If you are feeling the discomfort associated with pregnancy, turn to massage. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna specializes in the Nurturing the Mother massage and regularly performs pregnancy massage for people who are pregnant. If you are having a baby and looking for a massage, see what Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage can do for you.

Pre-Pregnancy Massage

Before you get pregnant, you can benefit from a pre-pregnancy massage. This massage uses specialized strokes to help your body prepare for pregnancy. Whether you are trying to get pregnant naturally or through IVF, this massage can benefit you while also preparing your body for some of the upcoming changes it will deal with. You will want to let Aruna know the reason for your massage appointment so she can make sure she tailors your session to what your body needs.

Pregnancy Massage

Once you are pregnant, you can still receive a massage. A massage while you are pregnant can help your body relax and relieve some of the discomfort you may feel as your pregnancy progresses. Each time you come in for a massage appointment, you will talk with Aruna about what your body currently feels. This helps Aruna tailor your appointment to your needs. So, whether you have back pain one session but have to deal with swelling in another, Aruna will work with you during your session to make sure your needs are met.

Post-Partum Massage

Once you have had your baby, you can still benefit from a massage at Therapeutic Medical Massage. Aruna offers post-partum massages as well. Having a post-partum massage can help reduce stress levels associated with being a new mom. The different touches and strokes during the massage will help to keep hormone levels in line while reducing cortisol, the hormone that causes stress. Additionally, a massage can help with dopamine and serotonin levels, which can help reduce depression following childbirth. Everything done during the post-partum massage is designed to help ease the transition into motherhood following having a baby.

Scheduling Massage Appointments

Overall, the frequency of your massage appointments depends on what stage you are in of your pregnancy. Once you have reached your second and third trimester, you can have a 30 minute massage twice a week. This will help with relieving any discomfort you may feel, such as back pain, swelling, and general aches and pains. Once you have had your baby, you can schedule your post-partum massage based on your comfort level. Before your appointment, you will speak with Aruna and go over your current comfort level and anywhere you would like her to pay attention to or avoid.

If you are pregnant and want to relax, a pregnancy massage from Therapeutic Medical Massage can help. Aruna will work with you from beginning to end when it comes to your pregnancy, including before you are pregnant and after you have had your baby.

Are you looking for new and effective ways to feel less stressed? Day to day life can be full of overwhelming events. Whether you had a hard day at work or simply have a busy schedule, it is important to take time to de-stress. One great option for stress relief is to invest in sound healing. This sound experience helps to lower the amount of stress in your body, and it allows you to sit and relax for a period of time. The following article will tell you everything you need to know about investing in sound healing.

What is Sound Healing?

Sound healing is a type of sound therapy that helps lower the amount of stress and anxiety that your body is experiencing. The process uses different types of tools that create sounds, vibrations, and frequencies. These in turn help your brain and body de-stress and reset. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna specializes and performs sound therapy. You can participate in sound healing individually or in a group.

What Happens in a Session?

When you schedule a session with Aruna, she will have different tools that make sounds, vibrations, and frequencies laid out in front of you. She will take the time to explain each tool and allow you to try the tools. You and Aruna will spend the session creating sounds that allow you to de-stress and relax. 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.

What are the Benefits of Sound Healing?

Overall, the process is known for reducing stress and anxiety for people who take part in the sessions. The sounds, frequencies, and vibrations you hear during each session helps your brain relax and release stress. When your brain relaxes, it can help reduce the release of cortisol, which is a stress hormone. As a result, when you have less cortisol in your body, you will feel more relaxed. Further, sound healing can help break through certain energy blockages you may experience, helping you feel more like your true self.

Are you a cancer patient looking for ways to feel more relaxed and to reduce some pain in your everyday life? Many cancer patients invest in an oncology massage for these reasons. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna specializes in providing these massage services to cancer patients. Further, she is very experienced and a massage professional. The following article is everything you need to know about investing in and receiving this massage.

What is an Oncology Massage?

Some people fighting cancer invest in an oncology massage. An oncology massage is not a typical massage. A massage therapist undergoes special training in order to serve those individuals with compromised immune systems. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, our massage therapist Aruna specializes and has professional experience working with cancer patients and providing oncology massages. When working with a cancer patient, she provides service with slow, gentle, and mindful hands, with the intention to bring relaxation and well-being. Further, Aruna cares deeply for her clients and ensures that they will have a relaxing and enjoyable massage experience.

Oncology Massage Benefits

Information gathered from research studies indicates that massage incorporated into the care of cancer patients helps reduce anxiety, stress and pain, and promotes a relaxation response. Further, individuals going through cancer treatments feel nurtured, loved and reconnected with themselves. Massage helps not only physically, but emotionally as well. The oncology massage promotes a relaxation response and reduces stress, anxiety, insomnia, pain, fatigue and psychological distress. Lastly, the massage boosts the immune system, restores energy and soothes depression.

Oncology Massage from Therapeutic Medical Massage

Aruna specializes in providing oncology massage services. She learned Healing Touch and served Bethesda North Hospital patients as a volunteer. This experience helped her significantly when she was asked to provide hand massages to oncology patients at the hospital. Further, this experience helped her build relationships with the nurses and physicians. She learned that people diagnosed with cancer get poked, prodded, injected, and burnt by radiation. Therefore, when she entered cancer patients’ rooms, she made sure to provide a gentle, compassionate massage. The patients appreciate the compassionate touch and feel reconnected to their body, mind and spirit. That experience gave Aruna so much satisfaction knowing that she got to make a tiny difference in their life in a positive manner. She feels blessed to be in this profession serving these individuals.
