At Acu-Na Wellness Center we offer so many wonderful therapeutic modalities that you may question which one is right for you. You can never go wrong with starting with massage therapy to treat your chronic pain or injury. Our highly experienced massage therapists are the best of the best. They are skilled at incorporating a variety of techniques to meet your unique needs, including deep tissue massage, sports massage with stretching, Swedish massage, neuromuscular therapy, and more. Additional enhancements to your session are possible including ayurvedic scalp massage, reiki, and cranio-sacral therapy.
How Massage Helps
Our Hendersonville massage therapists specialize in massage for shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can originate from many issues including accidents and whiplash, arthritis, pinched nerves, and degenerative disc disease. Any of these issues may also cause pain in other areas of the body such as the neck and low back. Your therapist recognizes that all areas of the body are intrinsically interconnected, so she will thoroughly address your areas of concern by focusing on the shoulders, upper back, neck, and arms in addition to any other areas of tension in your body. You may receive a focused, targeted deep tissue massage for your shoulder pain, neck pain, or back pain. Or you may prefer a full-body Swedish massage approach including the muscles of the arms, legs, face, jaw, and scalp. Your therapist can incorporate sports massage techniques such as myofascial stretching and neuromuscular therapy. She can add cupping therapy to your session as an enhancement as well. Massage therapy is excellent to restore circulation of blood and oxygen and allow for healing of any restricted muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Your therapist uses her expertise about anatomy and physiology to determine the source of your pain and bring you significant relief within one to two sessions.
How often should you receive massage therapy?
Most Acu-Na Wellness Center clients experience immediate relief of their symptoms. We recommend following up within about one week to create the fastest change and gain momentum in restoring your vibrant health. An ideal schedule for alleviating pain conditions is to start with weekly massage sessions for 3-4 weeks. This will allow your body to heal and your muscles to “remember” how to relax and function properly without tension or pain. We offer convenient packages of 4 sessions at a discounted price to make it easy for you to receive the care you want. Once your condition is improved, you’ll be ready to move to a monthly maintenance schedule. Our monthly member program is an excellent choice to receive discounted sessions and have access to preferred scheduling.
Receiving deep tissue massage on a regular basis has profound effects on all aspects of your body. Not only will you notice decreased pain, you will also enjoy improved flexibility and range of motion. All of your joints will be more limber and you will have a lower risk of developing arthritis or future injuries. Prevention is the best medicine! You will notice your posture is improved and you will have more confidence to do the activities of your daily life including exercising, gardening, hiking, playing with your kids or grandkids, and enjoying your favorite hobbies without fear of hurting yourself. Massage therapy is also proven to help reduce blood pressure and heart rate, improving your cardiovascular health and reducing your risk of heart attack or stroke. The relaxation you receive during your sessions at Acu-Na will have the additional benefit of reducing your stress which can improve sleep and reduce anxiety.
