In our last blog, we went in-depth with some of our pain relief therapies offered at our Miramar medical spa. We covered cupping therapy, electrical muscle stimulation therapy, and shockwave therapy, all of which have proven effects on treating pain and inflammation. Today, we want to go over three more of our treatments for pain relief. Miramar residents can rest easy knowing that Body Sensation Spa offers pain therapy methods that work for a variety of ailments.

Thermal and Cold Treatment

Hot and cold therapy for pain relief has been shown to relieve lower back pain, muscle strains, and in some cases can even help with pain associated with arthritis. But it isn’t as simple as alternating ice and heat packs. A trained medical spa technician can use hot and cold therapy in addition to massage and stretching therapy to help effectively relieve pain.

Visceral Manipulation Therapy

Visceral manipulation is a gentle manual massage that designed to help your body release tension that causes pain. Unlike some of our pain relief therapies, like shockwave therapy, visceral manipulation focuses on the entire body, rather than the specific location of pain. ‘Viscera’ deals with your internal organs, so a massage therapist will gently manipulate your abdomen to encourage normal function of your organs, such as the liver, intestines, or kidneys. Visceral manipulation is considered a game changer in alternative medicine by treating musculoskeletal problems from the inside, out.  

Deep Tissue Therapy

Deep tissue massage therapy might feel like a regular massage with more pressure, but it is actually its own style of massage therapy designed specifically to relieve chronic pain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up scar tissue, and manually break down knots that prevent normal circulation and cause chronic pain, tension, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage has positive effects on relieving muscle and joint pain. It can also help to restore lost range of motion, help with carpal tunnel syndrome, offer relief for sciatica pain, can help with tennis elbow, as well as other ailments. A Consumer Report also showed that people with osteoarthritis pain claim that deep tissue massage can offer more pain relief than physical therapy, diet, medication, and acupuncture.
