Clinical massage is a medley of modalities brought together for a single purpose - to restore wellness to the body in a relaxing, delightful, non-invasive manner. When trauma takes place, whether it is from a car accident, a fall or an act of unkindness, it leaves its imprint on the body. Symptoms vary from joint stiffness, pain, limited range of motion, a general sensation of aching or heaviness, chronic headaches, migraines and so on. Persistent discomfort, in any of its forms, is the body's signal for trouble and is better addressed early than late.
Clinical massage assists the body by:
- Improving circulation, restoring health and vitality through cellular nourishment.
- Cleansing the lymphatic system, a major part of the immune system, which fights all illnesses from colds to cancer.
- Reestablishing proper joint function. It releases hyper-tense muscles and clears accumulated toxicity in the muscle attachments.
Clinical massage is effective with:
It is well documented how stress maintains the autonomic nervous system on high alert-fight or flight mode-which creates a continuous level of muscle tension, both skeletal and visceral (our internal organs; i.e. heart, digestive system & others) often bringing them to the point of exhaustion. With clinical massage, the muscular, circulatory and lymphatic systems are cleansed, allowing them rest. These systems then reestablish themselves in a properly functioning mode. In other words, during massage, the vicious cycle is broken allowing the autonomic nervous system to "reset its dials".
Neck and shoulder or any joint
By releasing the hyper-tense muscles the entire area can re-establish balance and return to its proper functioning.
and often slows its progress by maintaining proper joint function, muscular balance and improved circulation, as explained earlier.
All joints function at the mercy of the muscles and nerves. By releasing hypertension, the proper movement of most any joint can be reestablished. With sciatica, pain is being caused by a tense muscle putting pressure on a nerve causing pain from the hip, down the leg, often going as far as the heel.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Although the pain is located in the wrist, carpal tunnel can be traced all the way up the arm, into the shoulder and neck. When addressed through massage, the entire pattern can often be cleared from the body allowing the pattern of swelling and pain to be eliminated.
Chronic tension headaches
are relieved through improved circulation and muscle tension relief. In 90% of the cases, once the tension pattern has been erased from the body, the headaches are erased also.
Even the sinuses can be assisted through the use of massage, acupressure (release points) and essential oils, providing non- medicated relief and clearing - improving the overall functioning of the sinuses.
Through advanced studies in CranioSacral Therapy, Patty Ceccoli, LMT, CST can address and often eliminate the stronghold pattern of migraines.
Supporting chiropractic care
by releasing the musculature surrounding the spinal vertebrae, making it easier for the body to maintain the chiropractic adjustment.
