Chair Massage Therapy near Milan

The Chair Massage technique focuses on the manipulation of the soft tissues on the upper body, including; the head, neck, back and the shoulders which are often the source of frequent tension. When seated in a specially designed chair, the therapist has easy access to the key areas, and the result is a very targeted massage - designed to pinpoint exact areas of the body.

The muscles of the neck, shoulders and back are subjected to daily stress and often these stresses can cause body tissue to become sore and stiff. A therapist often uses his or her elbows in conjunction with the hands to apply pressure to the affected regions and muscle groups during the chair massage. The result of this gentle manipulation of tissue is muscle relaxation, and the release of tension and stress.

As such, massage therapy plays a vital role in pain management and relief. Muscle knots (also referred to as Adhesions) are the frequent cause of aches and pains, especially in the neck. The scalene muscle group in the neck is often the origin of pain that spreads throughout the shoulders, upper back, chest, hands, arms and even the side of the head. Skilled therapists can easily and effectively target the muscle groups when the guest is in the chair as well as release Trigger Points, providing the immediate relief.

Improved Circulation

When muscles relax, it is easier for blood to reach the body's tissues, leading to better circulation. Therapists also use specific techniques to manipulate the muscles and help guide blood through the tissues. The improved circulation that results from massage allows oxygen and nutrients to flow more freely and easily into the muscles and encourages waste products to move from the muscles into the bloodstream, where they are expelled from the body.

Corporate Chair Massage For Your Business!

No matter what your employees' duties are, the office can often be a source of stress. Presentations, deadlines, meetings and big projects can all cause the neck, back and shoulders to ache and stiffen. Corporate massage addresses this issue by making relaxation and rejuvenation part of the work day, leading to many benefits for both employees and the company as a whole.

Improving Health

Massage has been shown to relieve arthritis, boost the immune system, improve muscle and joint functioning and reduce blood pressure. These benefits make your employees feel better, allowing them to work more efficiently and miss less days of work.

Improving Overall Well-Being

Waning morale can have a major effect on a business's bottom line. Work-related problems like stress cost companies billions of dollars a year, but massage can boost morale and make employees look forward to coming into work each day. Relaxed employees are also less likely to feel anxious or hostile at work, which leads to a more positive and productive work environment.


Sports & Deep Tissue Massage Therapists for Milan

Relaxation Massage Therapists Serving Milan MI | LaVida Massage Ann Arbor - sports_massage

Roman physician, surgeon, and philosopher Claudius Galen (AD 129 - 200) is widely recognized as the developer of an early therapeutic massage regiment (in the second century, mind you!) that would be comparable to what is now commonly referred to as a Sports Massage. Sports Massage is important for every level of athlete from cross-country runners to power lifters to football players. Before an event, sports massage allows for the player to loosen their muscles and after an event it allows the player to relax the muscles to decrease the chance of sports related stress injuries. Sports massage is also a key element in preventing injuries and also helping athletes recover more quickly from injuries. Using Sports Massage properly will help athletes maintain and even improve upon their conditioning. Three main types of massage are integrated in a therapeutic Sports Massage to maximize the health and/or repair benefits of it.


Swedish & Relaxation Massages

Over time, the body builds up unhealthy amounts of stress hormones in response to work deadlines, traffic jams, relationship problems and more. These hormones can cause physical problems, like digestive issues, headaches and sleeplessness. Relaxation massage decreases the amount of stress hormones in the body, leaving clients feeling completely relaxed and rested, even after the session is over. The techniques used during the massage trigger changes in the brain's chemistry, resulting in reduced stress and an improved mood.

Rejuvenation

Following a massage session, most guests report feeling not just relaxed, but completely rejuvenated. This feeling is attributed to the release of dopamine and serotonin during massage. These hormones are responsible for happiness and feelings of overall well-being. Studies show that during massage, activity in the right lobe of the brain, which is more active when people are depressed, is decreased, and activity in the left lobe is increased. The left lobe is most active when people are happy, and massage kicks that area of the brain into high gear.
