Best Ways to Relax During the Holiday Season

The holiday season is a stressful and fulfilling time of year. Treat yourself or a loved one to a moment of peace at Therapeutic Medical Massage located in Liberty Township, Ohio! This article walks you through the best ways to relax during the holiday season.

Swedish Massage

This massage is one of the most popular massages for a reason. It is incredibly relaxing. Using creams and lotion, the therapist will combine stroking, kneading, gliding, tapping, and joint movements to reach ultimate relaxation. Not only is a Swedish massage great to alleviate stress, but other benefits also include:

  • Mental clarity,
  • Improved immune system function
  • Reduced occurrence of headaches
  • Improved digestion
  • And much more!

Warm Stone Massage

This massage consists of placing warm stones on specific parts of the body for relaxation and pain relief. The stones work to release heat and penetrate deep into your tissue– making each massage stroke more effective. A warm stone massage is perfect for this holiday season because it takes you into a deep state of relaxation. Additionally, it will release built up stress and anxiety, help to detox your body, and steady your nervous system.

Sound Healing Therapy

If music is how you unwind, this special type of therapy is perfect for you. Aruna is a professionally trained sound healing therapist. She will create relaxing vibrations using specific instruments, allowing you to transcend to a state of deep relaxation. Sound healing therapy will also help to balance your nervous system, lower your blood pressure, and improve your sleep.

Cupping Massage

Suction cup therapy is an ancient form of medical massage. Typically, it is used primarily for pain relief; however, cupping therapy can be incredibly relaxing. The suction cups are used to effectively heal muscles, allowing them to relax completely.

Deep Tissue Massage

If this holiday season has you tense and stressed, a deep tissue massage is the one for you. This massage works to dig those deep knots out of your muscles with solid, consistent strokes. Additional benefits include stress relief, lower blood pressure, pain relief, and increased range in motion.

Swedish Massage

If you are just looking to relax, the Swedish Massage is perfect for you. This is one of the most common types of massage and is made to relax the body and improve your overall health. This massage is a combination of tapping, gliding, kneading, and generally light strokes. Aruna caters every massage to your specific needs. However, some benefits can include improved flexibility, mental clarity, advanced immune system, aches and pain relief, and so much more.

Cupping Therapy Massage

Cupping therapy is an ancient healing technique used to ease pain. The small cups are used to suction the skin and create an internal vacuum. This vacuum generates pressure which releases soft tissue, drains excess fluid, and stimulates the immune system. The pulling action of the cup works to relax even the most difficult muscles which results in deep relaxation of the whole body. Find out which cupping therapy route is best for you!

MPS Scar Tissue Release

Aruna is certified in The Dolphin Neurostim which is used to treat scar tissue pain. The Dolphin is an incredibly safe and easy machine to use. It works by applying brief pulses to specific trigger points that allow the body to reduce endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural pain killers and help relax the muscle. Overall, MPS therapy is excellent in alleviating painful scar tissue. In addition to that, it helps to reduce stress on the body, regulate the nervous system, and accelerate cellular healing.

Lymphatic Drainage

Our lymphatic system is home to our immune system which cleans out our whole body. Sometimes our lymphatic systems can become clogged with cellular waste. Manual drainage using light hand techniques can greatly help the body drain the toxic buildup. If you have just undergone a surgery, lymphatic drainage therapy is perfect for you. It helps you to recover quickly and decrease inflammation.

What is Cupping Massage Therapy?

How It Works

Cupping massage therapy is an ancient form of massage therapy that utilizes suction cups to relieve pain and tension in the areas of concern. Via suction, an internal vacuum is created that delivers negative pressure. Negative pressure (pulling action of the cup) works to release soft tissue, drain excess fluid, stimulate your lymphatic system, and bring oxygen and blood flow to your stiff muscles. Not only is this great if you suffer from chronic inflammation or pain, but the pulling action also works to deeply relax the entire body. Negative pressure triggers your parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for helping us relax.


Suction cup therapy is extremely safe and oftentimes resolves chronic pain and stiffness quicker than massage therapy alone. It is so effective that it can be used in place of a deep tissue massage. This form of therapy works to decompress soft tissues using suction while regular massage therapy compresses the tissue. Cupping therapy is a unique way to relieve pain, drain excess fluid, increase energy, improve reflexology, and so much more. It can even be used to stimulate blood flow, minimize fascial restriction, facial rejuvenation, removing wrinkles and cellulite build up. No matter what your area of concern is, cupping massage therapy really is a one-stop shop for your whole body. Contact Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage today to schedule your cupping massage therapy appointment! We cannot wait for you to experience the results of cupping.
