Welcome to Optimal Wellness Center, where we believe in taking a holistic approach to pain management. We understand that traditional methods of pain relief often involve the use of addictive medication, which can come with unwanted side effects and may not always be effective. That’s why we offer comprehensive alternative pain management treatments that prioritize your overall health and well-being.

One of the key alternative therapies we offer is massage therapy. Our experienced massage therapists use a variety of techniques such as Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release and Trigger point therapy  to help relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, and reduce stress. Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain or just need to unwind, our massage therapy services can help you feel your best.

Another alternative pain management option we offer is Mobility Training. Our skilled movement therapists work with you to develop a personalized exercise program that can help you manage pain and improve your mobility. Mobility Training can also help you build strength and flexibility, which can be beneficial for preventing future injuries.

Functional Nutrition is another important aspect of our alternative pain management approach. At Optimal Wellness, we understand that the food you eat can have a significant impact on your overall health, including your pain levels.

Massage Benefits

Before you consider a massage, make sure you know about the overall benefits. Most methods relieve stress, which can make you feel better about yourself as well as help you relax. Many people also found that regular massages help them cope with their anxiety and other emotions. Some of the other massage benefits you should know include:

  • Massages help reduce the tension in your problem areas.
  • They help you get the healthy and deep sleep you need.
  • You can improve your health, especially your heart health.
  • Some find that massages improve their balance and coordination.
  • You might lower your blood pressure.
  • Massages reduce common symptoms of certain medical conditions.

How to Get Ready for Your Appointment

Not everyone feels as comfortable getting a massage. If you feel nervous about what you should do before your appointment, relax. Try sitting down and drinking a glass of water. Proper hydration is important because the massage will manipulate your body and help it release toxins. Not only do you want to hydrate before your appointment, but you should also drink more water when you head home.

Professionals also recommend that you shower before your appointment. Take a long shower an hour before your appointment and use hot water. This helps relax your body and can also get you in the right frame of mind for your session. Another benefit is that it can cut down on your nerves. You don’t need to worry about your therapist smelling odd odors coming from you during the appointment.

What to Expect

One of the nice things about a professional massage is that you don’t need to spend a lot of time worrying about what will happen. If you never had a massage before, you can learn what to expect during the session and what you can do to make things go smoother.

First things first, wear clothing you feel comfortable wearing. While you can strip off some of those layers to help the therapist reach all of your muscle groups, you can also wear as much clothing as you would like. Simply let the therapist know that you have body image issues and want to wear a little more clothing. Keep in mind that you’ll also have a sheet between you and the massage therapist.

Before the session begins, you need to go through your medical history. This gives you the chance to talk about any health conditions you have or medications you take. You’ll also want to talk about why you want a massage and if there are any benefits you want to get out of it.

More than 40% of adults in the United States get massages every year, which comes to more than 45 million people. Those who get the most from their sessions are those who communicate with their massage therapists. Don’t be afraid to talk about what you like and don’t like. You might let the professional know that you feel comfortable with deeper pressure or that you would prefer they work on specific areas. The more upfront you are about what you want, the more you will get from your massage.
