Therapeutic Medical Massage

Are you looking for ways to relax? Whether you feel stressed helping your kids get ready to go back to school or feel anxious in general, a massage can help you feel better. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers the five most relaxing massages for summer. Learn about these different massages and see which of the relaxation massages is right for you to help manage and reduce stress.

Swedish Massage

When people think of a massage, the first massage they typically think of is a Swedish massage. Swedish massages are performed in spas and wellness centers and are also performed by Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage. Aruna will use different types of strokes during your massage to maximize your relaxation.

Swedish massages do more than just help you relax. Some of the benefits include:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better flexibility
  • Improvement in your body’s circulation

If you need a new way to relax, a Swedish massage can help immensely.

Warm Stone Massage

If you are experiencing back or pain or tight muscles, adding an element of heat can help you feel better. Aruna performs warm stone massages, which use specific types of stones placed on your body to help with relaxation and relief.

The type of stone used depends on how you currently feel based on the chakras of your body. Larger stones hold heat for longer periods of time. Smoother stones are preferred for moving stones around your body whereas jagged stones are if you need to hold them. Aruna will work with you to determine the right stones for you.

Bamboo Fusion Massage

A bamboo fusion massage uses bamboo to aid in a relaxation massage. Similarly to a warm stone massage, bamboo holds heat well, which can help loosen your muscles while you relax during the massage. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna is certified in bamboo fusion massage and is one of the few massage therapists in Cincinnati who holds the certification. Whether you need a slightly deeper massage to help with tight muscles or want to enhance your massage, using bamboo is a great way to achieve it.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

If you have had surgery this summer or were in a car accident and have whiplash, a lymphatic drainage massage can help. While a lymphatic drainage massage is more of a medical massage, it can be quite relaxing. Aruna uses specialized touches to help stimulate your lymphatic system, which helps to remove waste from your body.

Cupping Therapy

Additionally, if you have chronic pain, a session of cupping therapy can help. Cupping therapy uses specialized cups that suction your skin into them through negative pressure. This allows fresh blood to enter the area, which can help manage your pain.

Managing stress is a key component of better self care. If you are looking for ways to relieve stress and help you a relax, a massage is a great way to do that. Whether you want to try one of the five most relaxing massages for summer or another type of massage, Aruna is here to help.

When it comes to your ultimate relaxation, you have many avenues to take. One of those ways is by pairing your massage with meditation. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna offers small forms of meditation before, during, and after your medical massage. Whether you want to increase relaxation, improve your health and reduce pain, or just become more reflective in your day-to-day life, massage and meditation can help. Learn about the different ways pairing massage with meditation can help you on different levels.

Meditation Through Sound Healing

One of the easiest ways to meditate is through sound healing. Sound healing uses sounds from different sources, mainly tuning forks, Tibetan singing bowls, and calming sounds of nature, to help re-set the chakras in your body.

Because it’s so important to set the right tone going into your massage, Aruna will start each session with a miniature version of sound healing therapy. Use the time to meditate and set your intention for your massage. It can help you feel more relaxed and feel less pain following your appointment.

Focus on Healing with Massage

Massage has many benefits, including the ability to help with your healing. The majority of the massages that Aruna offers focus on healing and reducing pain. For instance, a lymphatic drainage massage helps to boost your lymphatic system following surgery and helps to remove built up waste and toxins. Additionally, cupping therapy can help increasing blood flow and circulation, which can help with lowering blood pressure and reducing pain in places with cup placement. Many times, people find these medical massage types to be relaxing and they let their mind wander. This can present a time for meditation as well.

Reduce Your Overall Stress Levels

When pairing massage with meditation, you can start to feel less stress. Massage is known for reducing stress hormones in your body, which in turn can also help in reducing pain you may feel. Following your massage, take a few minutes to reflect on how you feel. Regularly getting in touch with yourself can help with reducing stress and meditation is a way to achieve that.

Take Part in Group or Individual Sessions

While massage is usually done in a one-on-one setting, the sound healing sessions can be done on an individual basis or in a group. One of the great things about sound healing in a group session is that everyone hears the same sounds, but the way each person’s body interprets the sounds are completely different. Your body knows what frequencies it needs to latch onto in order to feel better and it could be completely different from the others in the group. But as you all leave the session, you may all feel more relaxed and balanced.

If you’re looking for different ways to promote inner healing, pairing massage with meditation is a great place to start. Whether you choose the mini sound healing session before each massage you receive or have a full sound healing session to re-set your body’s chakras, you can help yourself feel better in a variety of ways. since 2008, Aruna has helped patients on their pain free journeys through medical massage, sound healing, and more.
