Medical Massage will increase the healing process by performing the following:
Will assist by improving the functioning of all systems in the body which consist of lymphatic, circulatory, muscular, nervous, respiratory and the skeletal.
Decrease existing levels of acute or chronic pain by aiding in fluid reduction, reduction of swollen tissue, and a lower release level of stressor hormones throughout the whole body.
Reduce the amount of inflammation existing at the site of injury.
Increase the amount of endorphins in the body to assist in an improved recovery at the emotional level as well as the physical level.
Increase oxygen and nutrients supply to tissues throughout the body via aiding quicker blood cell movement by efficient travel through the body’s arteries to deliver oxygen and nutrients as needed in the body at the cellular level.
Decrease swelling in extremities of the body by helping improve the functioning of the lymphatic system and encourage fluid movement to move in a balanced fashion to satisfy the body’s needs. This will assist in cases of edema, injured tissue, and post operative surgery swelling at surgical site.
Increase reduction of existing scar tissue. This will aid by improving flexibility of specific muscle groups located at injury site by causing the inner layers of the skin and underlying muscle tissues where scar tissue has formed to break down abnormal cells and dissolve them as needed.
Increase the functional mobility of joints involved at injury location.
