It is true that a massage can be described as a relaxation technique that can help ease muscle spasms, tension or stress. Yet massage therapy offers so many more core benefits that can relieve other symptoms that may need professional attention.
As a licensed and board-certified Massage Therapist, I have the experience and expertise to help people overcome many of the challenges associated with the aging process. Massage is known to help alleviate pain and inflammation. Therapeutic massage can also help lower blood pressure, enhance a person’s immune system, improve circulation and reduce arthritic discomforts.
I work cooperatively with physicians and medical staff to tailor massage therapy sessions that can help and support individuals. Physicians often prescribe specific massage treatments for their patients to promote the rapid healing of damaged cartilage, sore muscles, tissues or inflamed areas.
I’m privileged to have introduced massage therapy to King-Bruwaert House more than 25 years ago. Throughout the years, I have met many wonderful people who have entrusted me to be caring and responsive to their physical needs relating to pain relief and reduced tension. I encourage more residents, family members and friends to experience the value of massage as a recommended therapeutic option. Facial toning, sinus pressure relief and back pain massage treatments are also available. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (630) 323-2250, Ext. 9412; or (630) 368-2733.
