At Alevia Health and Wellness Centre in London, our registered massage therapist uses firm but gentle pressure to manipulate tissues and works at different tissue depths based on your body’s needs and tolerance. Massaging an area of an injury or chronic pain/dysfunction may cause some discomfort at first, but this usually lessens after the initial treatment. At Alevia we listen to the patient and their body’s feedback to provide the most effective massage therapy treatment possible. Through massage therapy, and the integration of our services, we help our patients achieve their optimal health.
How Does Massage Therapy Work?
Through manipulation of the muscles and pressure to the body, massage therapy increases circulation, sending oxygen throughout the body. Therapeutic massage by a registered massage therapist at Alevia offers many medical benefits and is one of the best methods to relieve physical or muscular pain. Massage therapy helps reduce pain, increases post activity muscle recovery, and promotes a more balanced, relaxed body.
Massage therapy is one of the best remedies for stress. During your massage the body releases endorphins, the natural anti-stress hormones, which have a direct effect on reducing muscle tension, headaches, and promotes a deeper, restful sleep. Stress reduction gives you more energy, improves your overall well-being, and can prevent injuries and illness in the process.
Massage Therapy for Injuries?
With registered massage therapy at Alevia- injuries such as tendonitis, ligament sprains, muscle strains and other musculoskeletal complaints in the body recover more quickly. Massage helps reduce inflammation by increasing circulation, which removes waste products and toxins and brings nutritive fluids to injured cells. Massage therapy helps reduce chronic muscle tension and muscular imbalances, which in turn can help prevent injuries that might be caused by over compensating or unbalanced, inflexible muscle groups.
