About Unconditional Wellness & Athletic Therapy (UWAT)
Types of Massage
Whether it is the stress caused by work, family, or major life event. Allow UWAT to be there to assist you in your wellness journey. Relaxation massage is not just for the ‘spa’. It doesn’t have to be covered in oil and rose pedals. In fact, a multi-modality approach to accomplishing a state of relaxation / homeostasis, could be just what you need. As a result, you will decrease muscle toxins, increase oxygen levels in the blood, and improve flexibility...just some of the benefits!
Sometimes in life, we all over do it. For some of us, it’s too much sitting, driving, working on the computer. For others it may be pushing too hard in the gym, or a combination of factors. Whether your aches and pains are new, because of a car accident, slip/fall, or sleeping wrong, or you’ve had them and just thought that they were ‘part of life’. Therapeutic massage can assist with: TMJ/D, headaches/migraines, low back pain, neck/shoulder pain, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, tendonitis, bursitis, post workout soreness, DOMS/Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness and many others. In other words, UWAT can partner with you on your journey to quicker recovery.
Because Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back over 2,500 years, it is a completely different look at medicine and health/care. TCM looks at the body as a small part of a greater interaction. TCM rarely ever offers a ‘quick fix’. Consequently, life is looked at as a whole and infirmities are signals that we are out of balance. Cupping and Gua sha are some of the manual therapies that are used to unblock the flow of energy/qi (blood/lymph). TCM also uses dietary therapy and acupuncture to affect change in the body. While we are not complete TCM practitioners, we do embrace the manual therapy aspect and encourage people to explore wellness possibilities.
