Are you in need of a massage? Do you want to take your massage to the next level? At Therapeutic Medical Massage, we have a variety of massage types available to help you relax or to aid in healing specific conditions. But we also offer ways to enhance your massage and can incorporate different types of therapies into your massage. Whether you’re looking for a little extra relaxation from your massage or want to use your massage to help with healing, we can help.

Bamboo

If you’re in need of a deep tissue massage, Aruna may use her hands to apply pressure during your massage. Or, she may use bamboo sticks during the massage. Aruna is a certified bamboo-fusion massage therapist.

For this massage enhancer, the bamboo is heated. The heated bamboo helps to promote your overall relaxation while providing your muscles the heat they need to relax and loosen up. Using bamboo during a deep tissue may result in less discomfort compared to a traditional deep tissue massage.

Warm Stone Massage

If you’re looking to have your muscles loosen up while you relax, you can also turn to a warm stone massage. With this massage enhancer, Aruna will place warm stones on different parts of your body to help your muscles loosen up. In turn, you’ll start the relaxation process. Not only do the warm stones help you relax, they also help unlock and reset your body’s natural energies. So if you haven’t felt like yourself, a warm stone massage can help.

Essential Oils and Aromatherapy

Some people think that essential oils and aromatherapy go hand-in-hand. The truth is, both can be ways to enhance your massage but don’t need to be used together. Aromatherapy may be used in your massage to help treat a specific ailment, like headaches, stress, or insomnia. Essential oils can penetrate your skin and start a revitalization effort. Essential oils can either be applied directly to your skin when they’re mixed with a cream or added to a diffuser that send the oils throughout the room during your massage.

Cupping

One of the final ways to enhance your massage is with cupping therapy. Cupping therapy uses suction cups to suction your skin into the cups to increase healing and pain relief. Similar to the lymphatic massage, it can be an effective tool in jumpstarting the lymphatic system in your body. Cupping therapy can help in reducing pain, reducing swelling and inflammation, and lessening the side effects of chronic conditions like sciatica and fibromyalgia. Overall, it helps to relax overworked areas of your body to help you feel better.

At Therapeutic Medical Massage, you have the option of a standard massage or you can use any of the above therapies as different ways to enhance your massage. Whichever you choose, your massage will surely help you relax or reduce pain and other side effects from a specific condition. If you’re looking for a specific type of massage, there’s a chance Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage offers it. Need a massage? Book your appointment today.
