Therapeutic Medical Massage

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.

Are you thinking about having a massage from Therapeutic Medical Massage? Aruna specializes in many massage types, including medical massages and relaxation massages. Massage can help with pain relief, headache relief, and serve as a stress reliever as well. Wondering what to expect during a medical massage? Below, you’ll find a breakdown of what to expect before your massage, during your massage, and after your massage.

Before Your Massage Appointment

When you schedule your massage appointment, you’ll want to access the medical massage intake form. This may be emailed to you, but you can also find it in the resources section of the website. Download the form and fill it out honestly. If you’re unable to print the form, make sure you take a look at it and write down the information so you can fill out the forms once you get to the office. You’ll want to arrive a few minutes early to your appointment in case there’s any extra information you need to fill out before your massage.

During Your Massage Appointment

Before starting your massage, Aruna will look over your intake form and ask you any questions about anything you answered, especially if you’ve had injuries, surgeries, or massages before. It’s important to tell the truth about your medical history, as Aruna will use that information to determine the type of massage you’ll have and what areas of your body she’ll focus on.

Once it’s time to start your massage, Aruna will step out of the room so you can undress and get on the massage table. The table is heated so you’ll be comfortable during your appointment. Throughout your appointment, you’ll hear classical music and sounds of nature to help you relax. Also, to start the massage, you’ll have a mini sound healing therapy session. Aruna always starts each massage with a mini sound healing session as it helps to calm your nervous system down.

During your massage, Aruna will move different parts of your body around. While you may feel like you’re helping her by moving in the direction you think it should go, it’s best to let Aruna handle all the movements. All you need to do is relax during your session! However, if Aruna does something that feels uncomfortable to you, such as applying too much pressure in a certain area, you’ll want to let her know. She’ll make any adjustments necessary based on what you tell her.

After Your Massage Appointment

Following your massage, Aruna will leave the room so you can get dressed. Additionally, you can lay on the massage table for as long as you’d like. Once you’re dressed, you’re good to go. For the rest of the day and the next day, you’ll want to drink plenty of water, especially if you feel a little sore following your massage. Feeling sore is normal, but feeling pain isn’t normal.

If you’ve been wondering what to expect during a medical massage to the point where it’s held you back from getting a massage to feel better, now is the time to schedule your appointment. Whether you want a relaxation massage to help you relax and decrease your stress and anxiety or a medical massage to help reduce pain, Aruna is here to help. Ready to have a medical massage?

Do you sit in an office chair at a desk for most of the day? Does this cause your muscles and back to feel stiff resulting in chronic back pain throughout the rest of the day? You deserve to live a life that is pain free. Investing in a medical massage is an effective way to take care of your back pain. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna utilizes targeted therapeutic medical massage techniques that have been clinically shown to significantly reduce pain and promote healing. The following are the two types of medical massages that can help reduce and alleviate back pain.

Chair Massage

A chair massage is a great way to relieve back pain. A chair massage therapist can address tight muscles and provide relief. Have you observed a coworker working at the computer desk hunched over for hours? People who are working with computers haven’t had an opportunity to relax their lower back muscles when they have been in that posture for extended hours.

Receiving a chair massage relaxes the tight, shortened muscles in your back. As a result, a massage brings oxygen back into those muscles. This makes an individual more productive at work. It increases the flow of vital energy and alleviates problems like carpal tunnel. By using thumbs to walk along the spine on your back, a chair massage loosens your back muscles, balances the energy, and increases blood flow to organs.

Deep Tissue Massage 

A deep tissue massage is another great way to relieve back pain. During a deep tissue massage, you can ask your massage therapist to focus on your back in order to alleviate your back pain. This will allow the deep tissues in your back to feel more relaxed and loosened. A deep tissue massage is also a great way to relieve stress from your back and body. Please feel free to inform your massage therapist if the pressure the therapist applies is comfortable or not.

Back pain can become a chronic problem if you do not take the time and necessary steps to address the problem. Whether you are sitting in an office chair for too long or move the wrong way thus irritating your back, investing in a massage is an excellent way to reduce the amount of back pain that you are experiencing in your everyday life. The effectiveness of a massage for back pain means you can start to live a life with less physical pain. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, the different types of medical massage 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.
