Medical massage therapy is more geared toward fixing a specific problem as opposed to wellness massage that helps clients relax and provide stress relief. Both types of massage are very therapeutic.
Medical massage sessions follow a therapeutic procedure. The prospective client comes to the session with some condition or injury and seeks a massage to remedy or improve the medical condition.
Elite Massage of Titusville provides skilled and certified medical and therapeutic massage techniques to bring about a medical goal for health improvement.
How is medical massage beneficial?
Fire cupping, also known as cupping therapy, is a treatment technique that places glass, bamboo, or plastic jars on the skin to enhance circulation, relieve pain, and extract toxins from the body.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
Cupping encourages tissues to release toxins. Cupping gives your body a boost in releasing those toxins. Focused blood flow helps your body by flushing built-up toxins through the lymphatic system. (Your lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating your body's toxins and waste.)
Cupping treatments leave circular marks on your body and the darker the mark, the more stagnant fluids (toxins, blood, and lymph) were drawn up during treatment. However, these marks last anywhere from a few hours to several days. The more often you receive cupping for the same issue, the lighter the marks will be.
