Why Your Health Routine Should include Massage

Massage isn’t exclusive to luxury spas and upscale health clubs. Today, massage therapy is offered in businesses, clinics, hospitals and even airports. We spoke with Bill at Ultimate Health and Wellness about the benefits of massage and what to expect during a session.

Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Studies demonstrate that massage has many benefits. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection. Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.

The main style of massage practiced at Ultimate Health is Seifukujitsu. It is a Japanese style massage that is about 1,500 years older than shiatsu. In today’s terms, it is a combination of sports, deep tissue, lomilomi, shiatsu, aromatherapy, acupressure, lymph drainage, energetics, and osteopathy. The bodywork I practice is therapeutic in nature.

There are many massage protocols for various ailments such as headache, low back pain, sciatica, low energy, and more. Massage is an integral part of my Complete Wellness System. Massage loosens tense muscles, moves blood and lymph, increases energy, and removes stagnation.
