For relieving stress and chronic pain and tension, massage therapy has been in practice for centuries and remains a drug-free, natural approach to relaxation and pain management. At OM Medispa, we offer massage therapy services for those who want to feel pampered as well as those who desire a deeper tissue massage to relieve aching muscles and soreness.
What is Massage Therapy?
Generally speaking, massage therapy involves the strategic friction and movements of the hands along the muscles of your neck, shoulders, back, and elsewhere on the body. The amount of pressure applied to the muscles depends on the patient’s needs and preferences, and there are several techniques to help restore overall balance, promote body relaxation, and reduce pain.
What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
- Completely customizable treatment depending on whether you prefer light massage or a deeper tissue massage to relieve muscle soreness and pain
- Increased lymphatic activity and improved circulation
- Improved posture and pain management
- Lowered blood pressure
- No medications
- No side effects or downtime
At OM Medispa, we offer light, medium and deep massage techniques depending on the kind of massage experience you desire. Massage therapy is effective as a standalone treatment and is also often used in conjunction with other wellness therapies for optimal results.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Depending on the amount of friction used during your session, patients may feel sore after their massage, which is common and should only last a day or so. Those who receive deep tissue massage are encouraged to drink plenty of water in order to assist the body in removing toxins released from the muscles during treatment. For more effective pain management, regular sessions may be scheduled. There are many places to receive massage in the Elgin area, but at OM Medispa, we understand what it takes to restore overall balance to the body, mind, and spirit, and our licensed massage therapy technicians will listen to your preferences and help you determine the best type of massage for you.
