Many people think of massage as a way to relax and relieve stress. While it’s definitely one of the best ways to destress, massage is also recommended by medical professionals because it produces healing benefits.
The hands-on techniques used during medical massage:
As blood flow increases, injured and diseased tissues get a boost of healing oxygen and nutrients. When your lymph circulation improves, your body clears away toxic wastes before they have a chance to cause harm.
The therapists at Regenerative Health NY have extensive training in health conditions, physiology, anatomy, and numerous massage techniques that relieve your pain and promote healing.
They specialize in techniques such as:
Each person has an individualized medical massage therapy plan, depending on their symptoms and diagnosis. Some people need deep massage; others need light techniques to calm central nervous system activity.
Your therapist uses a range of unique movements targeting your underlying health problem. For example, trigger point massage uses precise finger pressure to relax a painful muscle knot.
By comparison, myofascial release relies on gentle massage to restore movement by stretching the thin layers of connective tissues (fascia) covering your muscles and organs.
You may want to consider specialized services, such as massage therapy which helps athletes prevent injuries and recover from activities. Some athletes find that a routine medical massage improves their performance.
