Therapeutic Massage

Massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being. Wellness at the Spa now features Therapeutic Massage on Thursday’s and Friday’s. Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:

  • Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping. It helps you feel relaxed and energized.
  • Deep massage. This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It’s commonly used to help with muscle damage from injuries.
  • Sports massage. This is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.

The Many Benefits Of Therapeutic Massage

Massage is among the most relaxing and soothing sensations one can experience. However, the benefits of a good rubdown go beyond relaxation and run deeper than you might think.

A recent study that appeared in the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) publication indicates that 50% of adults who saw a professional massage therapist in the past year did so for medical or health reasons. In contrast, only 28% of massage consumers sought massage for relaxation or stress reduction during the same period. So why are so many patients turning to massage therapy? Let’s review the health benefits to find out.

1. Stress Relief – For centuries, people have turned to massage as a way to de-stress. Indeed, recent studies confirm that massage significantly reduces physical and psychological stress.

Clinical studies show that massage therapy increases production of endorphins (natural chemicals that make you feel good), serotonin, and dopamine; while it reduces cortisol levels, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen consumption; factors typically associated with stress.

2. Reduces Anxiety – That heightened sense of elation after a massage isn’t just in your head. In fact, several recent studies confirm that researchers can actually measure the impact that massage has on individuals experiencing emotional trauma. Likewise, massage has also been shown to bring about a corrective effect for those suffering from deep anxiety.

3. Eases Muscle Tension – The complexities of modern suburban life has made Americans more tense than ever—both psychologically and physically. As a result, back injuries, joint stiffness, and muscle tension is ever on the rise. Unfortunately, this is a trend that medical experts don’t see changing. However, one factor that could soften the impact of muscle stiffness is therapeutic massage.

For example, techniques such as Swedish massage, have a proven track record of loosening muscle groups and relaxing stiff joints.

4. Improves Overall Sleep Quality – Maintaining good health is impossible without adequate sleep. The good news is that researchers have confirmed that massage therapy may significantly reduce the incidence of sleep insomnia. Furthermore, the effect of massage therapy on sleep isn’t limited to any one age group.

Studies have confirmed that massage promotes better sleep because it aids in the release of serotonin, which helps the body achieve a state of restfulness.

5. Promotes Greater Relaxation – Massage helps you rest by reducing the cortisol level and triggering several brain chemistry responses which translate into extended periods of deep relaxation.

6. Provides Muscle and Joint Pain Relief – The body of evidence that supports using massage for the treatment of pain at the muscles and joints is rock solid.

Whether it’s chronic back pain, knee osteoarthritis, hand arthritis, or any other form of rheumatism; evidence suggests that massage not only reduces pain but improves range of motion and overall function.

7. Strengthens the Lower Back – There was a time when adults were highly mobile throughout the day. However, given the amount of time that we spend straining our necks and backs using mobile devices or sitting at our desks those days are long gone. Sadly, many adults have lower back pain for life in the information age.

Therapeutic massage has been shown to alleviate back pain. In fact, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians, back pain sufferers experienced more comfort from therapeutic massage than those who were given a placebo.

8. Helps Fight Depression – Massage has long been thought to reduce depression. But several recent studies provide conclusive proof that therapeutic touch relieves those who suffer from depression.

Furthermore, there is research which validates the impact of massage therapy in alleviating perceived pain and anger. reducing the frequency, intensity and duration of anxiety attacks and mood swings.

9. Enhances Blood Flow and Circulation – Therapeutic massage facilitates blood circulation by directing oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to and from our muscles and internal organs. In turn, this improved blood flow leads to growth, recovery, and healing throughout the body.

10. Relieves Sports Injuries – Before massage therapy began making inroads in the medical sector, pro athletes and coaches had already adopted massage therapy as part of their fitness regimens.

While evidence was initially scant, new studies backed by reputable sources are firming up the effectiveness of massage therapy in sports, thanks to its proven impact on medical test subjects.

I am a gastric sleeve patient who still sometimes deals with dehydration. I was sent home from work yesterday and had to call in today due to dizziness from dehydration. Wellness at the spa was not only able to get me in immediately, but they were also the cheapest I found after calling about 15 other places. The lady who worked the office was very professional, on top of being friendly and personable. The whole process only took about 15-20 minutes. I would hands down recommend this place for your vitamin and hydration boost needs.
My first time getting the IV- cocktail. The staff is so friendly and inviting. I love how easy and relaxing my visit was. The lady who set me up, I believe her name was Stephanie or Sharon 🧐 lol nonetheless , she was so sweet and kind. I’m looking forward to my next visit 😊

I had been feeling run down for a few weeks and was hoping for a boost before an upcoming trip. I’d never done IV Therapy before but figured I’d give it a try. I chose Wellness at the Spa based on positive online reviews. I’m so glad I did. Posha was an absolute joy. I spoke with her the day before and she answered all my questions with patience and gave me lots of great information. She knows her stuff! When I had the therapy done, Posha walked me through my options and advised what she thought was best for my situation. Never once did she try to “upsell” me or recommend unnecessary treatments. Posha was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and personable. I will definitely be back!

I could not shake a bad case of bronchitis and decided to give IV vitamin therapy & B12 injection a try. It was very easy to make an appointment, and they were prompt and very professional. Posha was very friendly and knowledgeable and made the whole process easy. Just a few hours later, I'm already feeling better. I will definitely be a frequent customer.
