Massage therapy and the care of veterans go hand in hand and can aid in the treatment of various physical injuries and other ailing conditions. VA benefits now cover the treatment of chronic pain, sleep disorders, stress-related problems, and many other recognized diagnoses. According to research, massage therapy may be a good option for managing pain and reducing the need for painkillers. It may also help people resume daily activities that have been hindered by their condition, improving their quality of life and even reducing some PTSD symptoms.
The center's website lists several advantages associated with massages. These benefits include reducing muscular pain and increasing range of motion; assisting with easier and quicker labor for expectant mothers; reducing the length of hospital stays for new mothers; reducing medication dependence; boosting immunity by enhancing lymph flow, the body's natural defense system, exercising and stretching weak, tight, or atrophying muscles; and helping athletes of any level prepare for and recover from strenuous workouts.
In Puyallup, craniosacral therapy (CST) is also available at Unlocking The Body. John E. Upledger, an osteopath, was born in 1970. During a patient's neck surgery, Upledger first noticed the rhythmic motion of what would later be called the craniosacral system. Dr. Upledger was driven to learn more about what he had seen, so he set out to conduct research to establish the reality of cranial bone motion. At Michigan State University, where he worked as a clinical researcher and professor of biomechanics from 1975 to 1983, he oversaw a group of anatomists, physiologists, biophysicists, and bioengineers who conducted research and testing. He eventually developed CranioSacral Therapy as a result of his continued research in the area.
A CST practitioner tests the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord by lightly touching various body parts in order to evaluate the craniosacral system. After that, any tissues affecting the craniosacral system are released using soft-touch techniques. Craniosacral therapy can treat a wide range of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment, by restoring the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's capacity to self-correct.
