Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage is increasingly being offered as a regular part of many insurance plans for its proven benefits for health and wellness.
Physically stretching the muscles, encouraging circulation, inhibiting muscle spasm and sedating or stimulating the nerves to ease pain or promote function as necessary are parts of massage therapy.
A trained massage therapist focuses on the normalization of the soft tissues affected by stress, injury and illness through the use of manual techniques that improve circulation, enhance muscular relaxation, relieve pain, reduce stress, enhance immune function or promote health and well-being.
Massage has been shown to assist in treating:
- Strains and injuries
- Tennis elbow/ golfers elbow
- Carpal tunnel
- Pre/post natal care
- Sports-related grievances
- Joint pain
- Difficulty with digestion
Myofascial Cupping has now been recognized as an approved modality by NHPC. This means that registered massage therapists are insured to use this modality as part of their massage therapy treatment.
Massage therapy treatments are booked by length of time and regular massage therapy rates apply to massages that include cupping therapy. Simply book with a therapist that is trained in cupping and ask them to include myofascial cupping into your massage therapy treatment. These treatments are direct billed as regular massage therapy treatments.
At Beddington Chiropractic and Massage Nikki Cheslock, Maybritt Kozak, and Melissa Demerais are trained in myofascial cupping.
What is myofascial cupping?
Myofascial Cupping is a form of myofascial release and trigger point therapy. It combines various massage and stretching techniques with the application of slightly pressurised (ie suctioned) cups . This helps to lift and separate the soft tissue, allowing for greater fluid movement and nutrient supply throughout the soft tissues. This nourishes, detoxifies, stimulates and increases range of motion.
