Massages are a great way to show a loved one how much they mean to you. Whether it be a massage for relaxation, therapy, post-surgery, or a massage just to escape your responsibilities, having one can help you in many ways. With the wide variety of massages that we offer at Therapeutic Medical Massage, these are the top massages that can satisfy anyone from a grandmother to a grandson.
If you are looking to gift someone a relaxing time that eases their anxiety, makes them feel comfortable, and allows them to forget about their responsibilities, a Swedish massage is a great gift. The main goal is to relieve the patient of aches or pains, decrease stress, improve flexibility, or reduce headaches. However, these are not the only benefits of this procedure. The therapist uses a variety of cream or lotion along with a combination of gliding, kneading, tapping, joint movements and cross fiber friction. All these elements lead to a peaceful, carefree time that everyone is sure to appreciate.
Although most believe that massages only allow for relaxation and comfortability, they also help people after surgery. Depending on the surgery that you have undergone, there is a wide variety of processes that help speed up recovery or reduce pain. For example, lymphatic drainage massage is a great choice for those who have recently had liposuction, tummy tucks, or plastic surgery. The procedure eliminates swelling, bruising, and can even speed up the recovery process. Medical massages focus on resolving pain that a patient has, and work on a targeted area to be more effective in helping with the healing. Thus, these are great gifts for those who are struggling with pain post-surgery or have a specific pain that is causing them grief.
Sports & Rehab
If you have a loved one that is heavily involved in sports, we provide post and pre massages. This helps before the game by increasing athletic performance through short, quick, invigorating strokes to stimulate the muscles and use positive imagery to ensure the athlete is mentally prepared as well. After a game or practice, the massage can help to flush out metabolic waste and begin the repair-and-restore process quicker. The method for post-activity consists of longer, slower, more sedating strokes. Though the techniques vary from athlete to athlete, sports massages help athletes recover from post-event soreness. If you know someone who has recently had an injury, the therapist completes an assessment and from there can then create a treatment plan to relieve the pain and speed up the healing process.
Massages have a variety of uses and benefits for many people. With the large number of massages that are available, there is something that everybody will enjoy and appreciate. From relaxing massages to decrease anxiety or allow for a peaceful evening, to medical massages that can help get your loved ones on their feat quickly, a massage is the perfect gift.
