Therapeutic Medical Massage

Regardless of your age, when you have an injury, you want to resume normal life as soon as possible. Depending on the extent of the injury, that may be possible. When it comes to healing, you’ll want to follow what your regular physician tells you to do. If they allow some alternative therapies, you have many different options. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, we offer cupping therapy, which is a way to help alleviate any injuries you may have.

How Does Cupping Work

Cupping works to increase circulation and alleviate pain from a specific area on your body. The most common area where people receive cupping therapy is the back. However, you can also receive cupping therapy on other areas of the body. Anywhere that has a lot of flesh is going to be great for cupping.

To start, we place a cup on the area receiving treatment. The cups then begin to suction your skin up into the cups. This allows for more blood to enter the area, thus increasing your overall circulation. It also helps in draining toxins and extra fluids from your body. Additionally, with more blood entering the area, it stimulates a healing process, leading to healing faster.

What Injury Works Best With Cupping

One of the best things about cupping is that it can help treat many different types of injuries. It has therapeutic and relaxation benefits, so you can use it as a complimentary therapy for a variety of problems. If you’re looking for a more therapeutic usage, cupping is great for chronic and long-term health issues. Similarly, if you’re looking to increase healing after an injury, cupping can also help. As discussed above, it helps to open different healing pathways in a more natural setting. Cupping therapy has helped many people who suffer from back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain. Many times, we can combine cupping with some of the other therapies and massages we offer.

Does Cupping Help With Other Things

For athletes who want to get back to the game, cupping is a great way to do that. Whether it’s used because of an injury or as a preventative measure combined with a pre-sports and post-sports massage, it provides an increase in blood flow.

It also helps for those who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, breathing disorders, and arthritis and carpal tunnel. When your body has an increase in blood flow, it improves your body’s overall circulation. The improvement in circulation means your body is processing fluids and toxins better and working harder to get them away from their body.

Cupping therapy has a number of benefits for many people who use it. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, we have a variety of therapeutic methods to help you feel better over time. Whether you want use cupping on a regular basis or because of a specific ailment, Aruna can help. Contact Therapeutic Medical Massage to schedule your cupping therapy now.

Do you ever feel rundown but can't exactly pinpoint the reason why? Or have you realized your body feels differently when you’re happy versus when you’re tired or drained? In general, humans have certain vibrational energies that work at different frequencies. A lower energy frequency leads to a heavier feeling with less clarity compared to when you feel recharged. If you’re worried about your energy levels, turn to Therapeutic Medical Massage. We now offer sound healing meditation, which aims to counteract the negative energies you may feel at any given moment.

How Better Energy Helps You

Having better energy helps in your life immensely. If you consistently feel down or not yourself, it’s a sign you need your energy taken care of. When you have better energy, you feel more like yourself. When your energy vibrates at a higher frequency, you feel lighter and more energetic. On a physical level, you feel more excited and ready to conquer what’s in front of you. Through sound healing, it’s one of the easy ways to help you re-center yourself and focus your vibrational energy on what’s important.

Easy Ways to Meditate

Meditation is a key way in helping re-center your energies. One of the best things about meditation is that there’s no right or wrong way to do it. As long as you’re using it to focus on something and block out external forces, it’s a great way to relax and re-energize yourself.

Again, meditation means different things to different people. For some, they may meditate better when they reflect on what’s happening in life. Others meditate through journaling. When you first start, it’s going to take a while to find what works best for you. Take the time to find what works for you and adapt it into your life.

Why Use Tuning Forks?

Tuning forks are a special piece of equipment we can use during sound healing. The tuning forks are struck by an object and create a deep, rich vibration designed to heal your energies and help them get back to normal. The sound the tuning forks make helps to increase your energy flow by removing any barriers you may have. Additionally, they increase blood flow and work to keep you relaxed. Different types of tuning forks work in different ways, so be honest about how you feel in that moment to get the right therapy for you.

Can It Combine With Massage?

Massages aim to relax you while opening up different pathways in the body. The same can be said for sound healing meditation. Some people choose to incorporate both into their sessions in order to have maximum healing.

Sometimes, a simple energy reset is all you need to feel more like yourself. With sound healing meditation at Therapeutic Medical Massage, you can take steps to balance your natural energy out again. If you’ve wondered about natural ways to re-center your energy, sound healing meditation is the way to go. Contact Therapeutic Medical Massage for your sound healing meditation session now.

People experience pain different and in different places. That’s why your massage shouldn’t be the same as the person whose appointment is before or after yours. Because of that, your massage should be personalized to what you feel before the appointment. Typically, the type of pain or soreness you experience factors into the type of massage you receive. During your pre-appointment with Aruna, the two of you will discuss anything pertinent to the appointment. At this time, Aruna is deciding the best type of massage for you. The right type of massage entirely depends on the symptoms you describe, so it’s important to be honest about everything you feel at that moment.

Headaches

Headaches plague people for different reasons. Unfortunately for headache sufferers, there’s not a lot that can be done to reduce headache symptoms. However, massage may help. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, trigger point massages and deep tissue massages may reduce the headache symptoms you feel. Also, you can apply a little pressure near the spot where your head hurts and rub a little to help.

Back Pain

Your back goes through a lot in a day. That’s why so many Americans experience back pain. While back pain is a nuisance in every day life, a massage may help. A deep tissue massage may help loosen up your muscles, reducing the amount of pain you feel. A Swedish massage may also help, especially if hot stones are used in conjunction with the massage.

Shoulder Pain

If you don’t experience back pain, there’s a good chance you may experience shoulder pain. Just like back pain, shoulder pain happens for a variety of reasons. Incorporating a shoulder massage into your life may help you feel better in the moment while also increasing pain and flexibility in the long run.

Post-Operative Pain

Depending on the type of procedure you have, you may be able to incorporate massage into your healing plan. However, post-operative massage should only be done when a doctor says it’s okay. If you get a post-operative massage before you’re ready, you may hurt yourself more.

Pregnancy

At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers a special massage for pregnant women, those trying to get pregnant, and those who recently had a baby. To ease any discomforts you may feel, a pregnancy massage may help. Also, this is when it’s very important to be upfront and honest during your pre-massage appointment so Aruna can address any discomforts you feel.

Oncology

Finding out you have cancer can be scary. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna has a special type of massage specifically for cancer patients. During an oncology massage, she’ll use gentle touches. These massages ultimately relax you while helping you reconnect.

Having a massage is a relaxing experience, but it also helps in easing any pain or soreness you feel. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna uses massage techniques to help get you back to normal. If you feel exhausted by other types of therapies you’ve tried, turn to massage. Aruna is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Ohio who specializes in many different types of massage. If you’re interested in medical massage, contact Aruna now.
