It’s estimated that over one-third of all American adults have gone to a massage therapist for help. It is a trusted treatment for clients who need stress relief as well as relief from aches and pains. One type of massage that is in-demand with clients from all walks of life is called the Thai massage. It's a popular treatment offered by the massage therapy specialists at Transformation Wellness Center in Troy.

What Is Thai Massage?
As the name suggests, this form of massage therapy has its roots in Thai culture. It’s estimated that it was developed as early as 800 AD, and has close ties to other now-common practices that came from the East, like Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga. It uses a combination of pressure point massage, yoga stretches and energizing techniques to give the patient a relaxed and invigorating experience.

Who Can Benefit from Thai Massage?
With so many different types of massages available, clients often want to know if Thai massage therapy is right for them. Here are a few categories of clients who can benefit from Thai massage therapy:

  • - People who are generally overwhelmed by stress and anxiety.
  • - Clients with chronic muscular pains or circulatory issues.
  • - Yoga enthusiasts.
  • - Clients who need a boost to their immune system (a claim supported by the American Massage Therapy Association).
  • - Clients who don’t feel comfortable with disrobing for a massage (most Thai massage is done fully clothed).


How Often Should You Visit?
Thai massages are performed in the comfort of a relaxing room at the Transformation Wellness Center in Troy. Your therapist will discuss the suggested frequency of visits with you at your first consultation appointment. The exact answer varies by patient -- for instance, someone suffering from chronic muscle pains may benefit from seeing a therapist several times per week for this treatment. In other cases, visiting once per week or even once per month may be sufficient.

Massaging the Pain and Stress Away...
Having massage therapy performed by a skilled professional can not only relieve you of pain, but also of mental stress. Call the Transformation Wellness Center in Troy today at 248-918-4898 to schedule your first Thai massage.

Trigger Point TherapyPain in your back, feet, legs or any other part of the body can prevent you from working, exercising and having fun. It can even make it difficult to walk or just relax after a hard day. The team at Transformation Wellness Center in Troy, MI can help  reduce and often eliminate your pain using a treatment called trigger point therapy. It is a non-invasive treatment that can provide relief through the release of pressure throughout the body.

Pain Relief
Patients most commonly report aches and pains in the back, neck, head (headaches), feet and shoulders. The pain can be caused by injury, arthritic conditions, health problems or general aging. Doctors explore many different methods of treatment for pain ranging from NSAID medications and cortisone injections to invasive surgeries. But some patients prefer to seek alternative, non-invasive solutions, like trigger point therapy.

What Is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger point therapy is a popular method of pain relief offered by Transformation Wellness Center in Troy, MI. Massage therapists use pressure on specific tightened muscles that may be causing pain in other areas of the body. For instance, a tight place in the back could be the cause of a pain in the neck. The qualified therapists at Transformation Wellness Center are educated about these pressure points and the various connections in the body.

Working Together...
You and your therapist must work together during a trigger point therapy session. The therapist uses varying levels of pressure directed to specific places on the body while you do focused, deep breathing. While this can, at times, be uncomfortable, your therapist is trained to deliver the most effective technique with the least amount of discomfort and will always work within your tolerance level.  In some cases, patients experience significant pain relief in just one session.  

Schedule a Session
If you’ve been experiencing pain or discomfort, you may be pleasantly surprised by the results of a trigger point therapy session at the Transformation Wellness Center in Troy, MI. Call the office today at 248-918-4898 to speak with a friendly staff member and schedule an appointment with a skilled massage therapist."

Achieving optimal wellness means having complete alignment between your mind, body, and soul. But when your mind is one place, while the rest of you is somewhere else, it's easy to see why you're feeling chronically fatigued or lack the bravado for life that you used to enjoy during better days.

At Transformation Wellness Center LLC, one of the top wellness-achieving practices available is the Raindrop Technique. First developed by D. Gary Young, ND, founder of Young Living Essential Oils, the Raindrop Technique utilizes the power behind natural essential oils to help reduce symptoms such as inflammation, persistent pain, stuffed lymph nodes, and unruly nervous systems in patients hoping to find lasting reprieve.

The Raindrop Technique helps improve the structural and electrical alignment of your body, simultaneously encouraging greater healing and speedier recoveries. For a normal Raindrop therapy, nine essential oils are used, including:

  • oregano
  • thyme
  • basil
  • cypress
  • wintergreen
  • marjoram
  • peppermint
  • Valor
  • Aroma Siez

What Does The Raindrop Technique Look Like?

The client first lies down on his/her back while the therapist lathers oils onto the spinal reflexes of that person's feet. Next, the client rolls over and oils are applied to his/her back from between 6-12 inches above. Then, the therapist uses "feather strokes" (light strokes) to smooth out the oils on the client's back. The nature of feather strokes stimulates the nervous system.

Once all the essential oils are on the client's back, the therapist will use a hot compress to press them deeper into his/her back muscles and underlying tissue cells. Finally, cervical stretching or craniosacral therapy concludes the session while initiating the complete wellness healing response.

The Raindrop Technique has been found to successfully aid in the amelioration of wellness issues ranging from immunodeficiency to chronic pain syndromes. It's even been known to help relieve patients with scoliosis symptoms.

For more information about the Raindrop Technique or any of the other holistic therapies in the Troy, MI area, give Transformation Wellness Center LLC a call at (248) 918-4898 today!

When it comes to your relaxation, what is the first thing you do?  While there are techniques at home to help youmassage relax, at Transformation Wellness Center we have a better solution to sitting in a quite room or soaking in a bath—Swedish massage therapy.
 
Swedish massage therapy is the most commonly known type of massage that uses slow, rhythmic strokes to help your whole body relax.  Complete body relaxation occurs through the rubbing of the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.  However, Swedish massage goes beyond relaxation, it is also beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
 
At Transformation Wellness Center in Troy, MI, we want to make sure you leave our office feeling relaxed and ready to take on your daily tasks without stress and tense muscles. We will work with you to determine the best massage therapy for you so that you can spend time relaxing and feeling better as a whole.
