I’ve been living in Ivanhoe for many years and I have enjoyed the people and the environment here. Though I always make sure that I eat healthy food and I perform regular workout session to stay fit and healthy, there are still times that I suffer from minor pain muscle and back pains. There are also times that I suffer from a minor back injury. As a woman that doesn’t immediately rely on synthetic medicines, I always look for natural ways that can effectively help me recover from physical pains and injuries.
Among the alternative and effective ways to help the body recover from unhealthy conditions include the 5,-000-year old traditional Chinese practice called acupuncture, drinking of natural and organic tea such as turmeric tea, and the more relaxing and pampering methods such as the body massage. Of these alternatives, I first considered trying back massage. So I searched for massage in Ivanhoe and was happy to have known about the Freedom Chinese Medicine.
I have tried body massage in the past but these are massages that only aim to pamper the body. They are not meant to help me recover from muscle pains and minor back injuries. I actually don’t have an idea before that massage can be used to treat the body and help it recover from weak and unhealthy conditions. So I searched the Web and instantly found out about the services that many massage therapy and service providers offer. Of the many providers, I choose to try the massage therapy the Freedom Chinese Medicine offers. So I went there and was lucky to have an appointment with Daniel, one of the therapist that are known to deliver great massage service particularly when it comes to relieving lower back pains.
Daniel as a therapist is such a nice person. He is not only pleasing in terms of his physical attributes but, he is also very kind, very attentive, assists me every time I need assistance, and he is really such a good massage therapist. He has great hands because he knows how to use them in giving my back the right pressure it needs. I can say that he is very well educated and trained because I have noticed that he is not just doing some random hand movements on my back. I can feel that the pressure he releases from his hands are moving over the different muscles, joints and nerves. In this way, I was able to feel the energy that is necessary to loosen the muscles and to relieve them the stiffness that I feel. After several minutes since my session with him started, I was able to feel the comfort and feeling of getting rid of the lower back pains that have always bothered and made me uncomfortable for days.
I also like the ambiance at the massage spa. It is not too old but not too modernistic in look. It has a right amount of lightning that doesn’t make me feel too sleepy. The colors are also well chosen because they are cool to my eyes, which is important for me because I don’t want something that is hurting to the eyesight. I am sure no one wants a massage spa that has very bright and bold colors like bright orange or neon pinks. Shades of green, blue and other earth colors are the best for me.
What I also like about Daniel is that he keeps a conversation while giving me the back massage. Although what I want to is to relax and don’t mind about doing other things, I didn’t find talking to him stressful or it didn’t make me irritated. Maybe because the conversation is light and the pace is not fast. Another thing about I like Daniel and the whole massage experience with him is that he discussed with me the different benefits of massage as a therapy to get rid of back pains particularly in the lower back. During our session, I learned that massage therapy to treat back pains is essential if I want to really take care of my body and the different muscles. He said that I should engage myself in regular massage session to help the body loosen up. If the body is massaged regularly, the muscles are able to help the body move quickly. It remains flexible and can adjust to actions that require adrenaline rush. In addition, regular body massage allows for the better circulation of the blood. If the blood is able to circulate all over the body smoothly, the different body parts, organs and systems are able to receive the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it needs.
With the many things I learned and the great massage session, I can say that will go back again and seek Daniel’s massage therapy service.
