MassageSkin Allure is excited to introduce a new service to our roster: Therapeutic Massage! The benefits of therapeutic massage are numerous because the massage process interacts with several major bodily systems including skin, muscle, connective tissue, and joints. Therapeutic massage has been praised by physicians as a terrific holistic treatment for many disorders. Look at all the benefits associated with massage:

Muscles and Nerves

Massage releases tense muscles which cause pain and can press on nerves or tighten joints:

  • Sports massage helps muscles prepare for or recover from activity and injury.
  • Maternity massage can help ease pregnancy pain and shorten labor.
  • Treats neck, shoulder, lower back, and hip pain resulting from sedentary lifestyle.
  • Improves posture
  • Improves range of motion
  • Helps to prevent and treat some pinched nerves
  • Reduces post-surgery swelling and adhesion
  • Treats chronic headaches and migraines
  • Treats paresthesisas and other nerve pain

Connective Tissue and Joints

Increased blood flow to deep tissue:

  • Improves lubrication of joints
  • Restores natural movement
  • Improves flexibility and range of motion
  • Treats some arthritis
  • Treats temporomandibular joint pain, tendon pain, fibromyalgia, and myofascial pain

Skin and Organs

Massage increases blood flow to the skin and other organs. Increased oxygen and nutrients:

  • Help to treat itchiness and pain associated with burns
  • Help with post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Condition skin causing it to look more youthful
  • Improve digestion
  • Decrease premenstrual water retention and cramping
  • Improve weight gain in preterm infants
  • Improve pulmonary function in asthmatics

Neurological, Lymphatic, and Hormonal

Hormones effect every process in our bodies from growth to stress. Changing hormones can cause cascading effects in the body such as:

  • Improved immunity by stimulating lymph flow
  • Decreased anxiety, pain, and fatigue through the release of endorphins
  • Decreased stress which lowers blood pressure
  • Increased concentration, sleep quality, and energy

There are many kinds of therapeutic massage including heated, deep-tissue, gentle manipulation, and others. Massage doesn’t have to be awkward or painful. Our massage therapists will work with you to find the right strategy for your recovery. Contact Skin Allure Medical Spa in NY to take advantage of some of the benefits of therapeutic massage.
