Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain in many patients. The massage therapists at North Florida Medical Center are trained in neuromuscular therapy, which is the most advanced technique to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems. Our massage therapists personally customize each therapy to meet the patient’s condition and injuries.

Benefits of massage therapy may include: increased blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieve muscle pain and cramps, and help in recovery and range of motion.

Cupping Therapy

Massage Cupping is a form of muscular and tissue therapy that provides a variety of health benefits, in addition to facilitating deep tissue release and muscle relaxation. Cupping is an ancient Chinese technique that has been integrated in to modern medicine due to its impressive results. Cupping sessions normally last between 10-20 minutes and cupping is generally used in conjunction with massage therapy.

How does it work?
Holistic Bodyworks Massage utilizes flexible silicone cups that allow the therapist to control the degree of suction by squeezing the cups in a way that matches your preferences for the level of suction. Cupping therapy pulls the tissue outward using suction, which boosts blood and lymphatic circulation.

What are the benefits?
Massage cupping provides a variety of benefits including increased circulation, increased blood supply to muscles and tissue, pain relief, reduced tension, reduced appearance of cellulite, nervous system sedation, reduced inflammation, reduced congestion, and loosening scar tissue.

What does it feel like?
The sensation of cupping is mostly described as sedating, relaxing and warm. After receiving a massage that utilizes cupping, it is normal for the skin to turn pink. This indicates that blood circulation has been brought to the surface of the tissue, and normally fades away within minutes.

Is cupping right for you? Contact us to speak with a therapist to determine if cupping would be the appropriate therapy for you. Clients who use blood-thinning medications are recommended to receive a lower level of intensity when it comes to suction. Let the massage therapists at North Florida Medical Center help you get back to living a pain free life. Don’t wait, call us today at (904) 269-2437 to schedule your consultation!
