massage therapy will improve your life:

Massage therapy can be extremely beneficial for people of all again. Wen you visit AV ACUMED  may recommend specific types of massage to complement your treatments, including:

  • Deep tissue massage. This type of massage loosens up your muscles and their connective tissues.
  • Swedish massage. This type of massage relaxes any stiff or tense muscles you may have, allowing for increased blood flow and fluid drainage from swollen areas.
  • Cupping is a method of Traditional Chinese Medicine where a partial vacuum is created inside a cup, placed on the skin. The negative pressure draws up the skin and underlying tissue. It stimulates blood flow in the area, relieves congestion and inflammation and eliminates toxins. Cupping is recommended for treatment of pain, gastrointestinal disorders, asthma, chronic cough, and many more. Ask your practitioner if cupping treatment is right for you.
  • Stretching therapy is a passive form of stretch which is applied by the therapist. During the stretching session particular part of the body is placed in a position that will lengthen the muscles and associated soft tissues. Other tissues that begin to adapt to the stretching process include the fascia, tendons, ligaments, skin and scar tissue. Stretching will leave you refreshed, will increase flexibility and range of motion, improve circulation and posture, and enhance coordination, release pain and stress.
  • Chinese Medical Massage – Tui-Na is a form of Chinese treatment, which is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is being used for over four thousand years. It is translated as “push-grasp” or “poke-pinch”. In essence, it “massages” the specific acupressure points by hands. Its goal, like the rest of the Chinese methods, is the balancing of the body, which facilitates the healing process.The first step involves the following techniques applied with different parts of the hand: brushing, kneading, rolling, pressing, tapping and rubbing the designated areas between the joints, which frees the flow of Qi in the meridians. The next step is to use different motions, traction or massage to treat the problematic condition. This special type of treatment is applied with different force ranging from light stroking to deep-tissue massage, which might be painful and is very different from the relaxation massage. It aims at balancing the flow of energy in the body. It is very useful in treating infants or elderly people but should be carefully applied because it is not an adequate treatment for every disease.Chinese Medical Massage helps in preventing disease and also helps a person to recover after a disease. This massage technique can be used every day. Doctors of oriental medicine teach their patient how to perform Tui-Na for self-healing. Self-massaging is very helpful for people suffering from fatigue, headache, cold or daily stress.
  • Therapeutic massage includes varieties of techniques, passive and active movements, focused on problematic area and issue. Therapeutic massage may or may not include a full body massage depending on clients needs.
  • Relaxation massage therapy is very gentle and relaxing. The therapist uses long smooth strokes, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil.

Massage therapy promotes tissue healing, so you can get back to living your life as quickly as possible. By working to mobilize, loosen, and relax your muscles, you can help them stay limber. This will decrease your risk of future strains, sprains, and ruptures.
