How Therapeutic Massage Can Help You

A therapeutic massage isn’t the same thing people splurge on when they spend the day at a spa. It is a combination of relaxation and remedial massage. This means, its intention is not just to relax your body but to work through some of the muscular issues you may be experiencing.

With this type of massage, we not only can work through the tight, stiff or sore areas of your body but we can also improve your body’s circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and other important nutrients to your muscles and helps remove waste products or reduce swelling. This is why therapeutic massage has been known to be very beneficial in treating inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.

Therapeutic massage has also been known to induce a relaxation response, which lowers your heart rate and blood pressure while boosting your immune system and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.

What Happens During a Therapeutic Massage?

If this is your first time getting a therapeutic massage at Body Tech Therapeutic Massage Inc., the first step is to review your medical history and ask your therapist questions. Because therapeutic massage can affect multiple systems in the body, like the cardiovascular and the nervous system, we need to know what we are working with so as not to upset the balance within your body. We also need to know about any pharmaceutical or homeopathic medicines you might be taking so that we can rule out certain techniques that you might not be suited for.

Once we have determined the therapeutic massage that works best for your body in its current situation, we will do whatever we can to make sure that you are as relaxed and as comfortable as possible. The whole point of this process is to increase your comfort by relaxing your muscles or alleviating pressure points throughout your body. We invite our clients to be vocal whenever something doesn’t feel good and we will readjust based on how you respond to the treatment.

Ultimately, what happens during a therapeutic massage is determined by your unique situation and how your body responds to the treatment we administer. So, if you want to schedule a consultation to determine what would work best for you, give us a call at (780) 466-8992 today.

What Conditions Can Be Treated With Therapeutic Massage?

Therapeutic massage has been used to treat many different conditions including:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • General wellbeing
  • High blood pressure
  • Arthritis
  • Low immunity
  • Minor injuries

If you are interested in pursuing therapeutic massage as a form of treatment for pain or discomfort you are experiencing regularly, consult with your primary health care provider and give us a call at (780) 466-8992 once you have the green light.

You should avoid getting a therapeutic massage if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Any infection or disease
  • A systemic infection, i.e., a bacterial or fungal infection
  • Certain types of cancer like leukemia or lymphoma
  • Severe cold of flu
  • Fractures, bleeding, burns or other acute injury
  • Liver and kidney diseases
  • Blood clots
  • Pregnancy-induced diabetes, toxemia, eclampsia or pre-eclampsia
  • High blood pressure that is not being regulated by medication
  • Heart disease
  • Open skin lesions or sores

If you have sensitive skin and are worried about your skin breaking out in an allergic reaction, simply let us know when you schedule your appointment and we will make sure to include a note on file to use hypoallergenic creams and oils. At Body Tech Massage Inc., our success depends on the satisfaction of our clients, which is why we always take every precaution necessary with allergies. After all, you can’t be satisfied with your therapeutic massage if it causes a rash or some other unpleasant reaction. As a rule, our massage therapists will confirm that you don’t have any allergies or things of that nature before applying a certain product as a part of the treatment.

Can I Exercise After My Therapeutic Massage?

You might be surprised how often we get this question. The whole point of a therapeutic massage is to relax your body, but some people just can’t wait to get back to pushing it to the limit. We recommend that you wait at least 24 hours before you return to your workout regimen because fast, vigorous movement after a massage is very likely to result in injury.

If you absolutely cannot wait 24 hours, wait at least four hours and make sure to get plenty of water because staying hydrated helps your muscles recover more quickly.

How Often Should You Get Therapeutic Massages?

The frequency of your massages depends on your goals and your lifestyle. Regular massages work best when on a four to six-week basis. When you come in to Body Tech Therapeutic Massage Inc. for your consultation, we discuss the recommended frequency and how it fits within your budget, insurance provider and doctor’s orders.
