Stress causes many health problems to manifest in our lives. Massage can help to manage stress and maintain health. The goal of relaxation massage is just that, to assist the body and mind to slow down, unwind and release the tension, anxiety and stress associated with daily life. Light to medium pressure is utilized to allow the body to relax. The massage session helps the client to reconnect their mind with their body, relax and breathe deeply. The lymphatic system is energized and assisted with cleansing toxins from the body. A sense of overall calm and peace is the objective
Brief Specifics of Massage:
Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of relaxation and healing. Massage consists of basic manual techniques derived from the study of Swedish Massage. These movements include stretching and pressure, holding and passive movements of the body. Therapeutic Massage works individual muscles, as well as muscle groups, to assist the body to relax,release toxins and to aid soft tissue to heal and repair after injury. Therapeutic Massage positively affects the muscular skeletal system as well as the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. Additional benefits may be achieved from specific massage treatments such as adding abdominal massage to a session to aid in digestion.
Suffering Pain from a Car Accident?
Massage is also very effective in aiding in muscular healing after a motor vehicle accident. If you have been involved in a car accident and are still having headaches, back, arm, leg or hip pain, massage may be able to help get you back to your pre-accident life. Oregon Massage and Wellness Clinic is happy to bill insurance for these treatments if your policy has personal injury coverage.
