Massage Therapy

Las Cruces Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manipulation of muscles and connective tissue to improve blood circulation, relaxation, and function of the body. Massage is an instructive way of relieving aches and pains as well as fatigue, nervous tension, and stress. Massage therapists have been around for centuries, and now they have become a very popular and safe method of relief. Nowadays, massage is available virtually anywhere including a massage parlor, spas, clinics, health clubs, dentist offices, airports, and resorts. They offer numerous benefits such as stretching of muscle tissue, loosening of scar tissue, and increased blood circulation.

Massage therapists perform safe and relaxing massage. Therefore, book yourself to a therapeutic massage whenever you feel pain or stressed out. Massage therapists concentrate on certain areas where tension might be accumulating. They focus on their strokes, and these massages feature harder and longer strokes. These types of strokes help in the kneading of the muscles, realigning, and stimulating their growth.

Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy working together at Las Cruces Rehabilitation and Home Care

Physical therapy deals with improving the structural and muscular support of the tendons and tissues. The aim of a physical therapist is to restore the activity of the muscle without affecting the normal healing process. Physical therapy reflects more on a medical model. Regardless if you have an injury or illness, a physical therapist will carry out a complete evaluation which includes reviewing the status of skeletal, pulmonary, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and neurological systems as well as any other health concerns. With your help, the physical therapist will then determine what needs to be done to improve your health.

A physical therapist’s scope of practice is far greater than a massage therapist. The massage therapist may make diagnoses with the scope that is quite different from a medical doctor. The physical therapist, on the other hand, put together complex treatment plans. Also, the physical therapist may perform medical massage yet, will still have the skills and expertise to do many things that are outside a massage therapists’ scope. For example, a physical therapist can assess the physical function of a patient who has had a stroke or other serious health-related issues. A physical therapist can also help you to focus on some (if not most) of your personal goal. He helps you learn what aspects of your health you should focus on.
