A licensed massage therapist understands the neuromusculoskeletal system which can assist in recovery from concussion / TBI and whiplash by balancing brain and body integration. With specific techniques tailored to the patient’s individual needs, therapeutic massage will:
- Increase the level of oxygen in the blood
- Improve circulation and flexibility
- Decrease muscle toxins
- Reduce pain
- Ease overall tension
Massage has also been shown to decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol, boost the immune system and improve the body’s biological feedback systems to further its healing. After a session, clients typically feel decreased pain, profound relaxation, a sense of well-being and experience improved sleep patterns.
