There are many benefits of massage therapy. Either as an integral part of the physical therapy treatment plan or by itself, massage therapy treatments can positively impact physical and emotional health as well as improve physical functioning. Massage works directly of many body systems including the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic (immune) systems.
Massage therapy is also effective in the control of anxiety, pain, both chronic or acute pain, in stress reduction, and in creating a sense of relaxation and well-being. Our physical therapists and licensed massage therapists have decades of training to help relieve your symptoms.
Another specialized type of massage done at Therapeutic Solutions, Inc. is referred to as Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage. It is one component of a more comprehensive treatment for lymphedema (lymphatic system swelling) known as Complex Decongestive Therapy (CDT). Therapeutic Solutions, Inc. is the only physical therapy practice in Rockdale County that has Certified Lymphedema Therapists that provide this manual lymphatic massage for a variety of medical conditions. Some of these conditions include relief of lymphedema after surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Vascular surgeons refer their patients with acute or chronic leg swelling due to a variety of circulatory problems. Orthopedists refer for CDT to relieve swelling from trauma and athletic injuries. Plastic surgeons refer their patients who have undergone a number of cosmetic/ aesthetic- plastic surgeries to promote healing and improve cosmetic and aesthetic results.
