Heat benefits during massage treatments


 

 

 

 

In my clinic during Winter you have been guaranteed a warm experience, with the use of our woolen heated underlay and the use of the wheat pack
With the help of a wheat pack, you can stay warm as well as ease the pain of sore muscles.
The major benefit of a wheat pack is of course its ability to ease pain. This is largely due heat therapies ability to dilate the blood vessels.
This process increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, helping to heal the damaged tissue. Heat stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin, which means that applying heat to the lower back will decrease transmissions of pain signals to the brain and partially relieve the discomfort.
Post treatment, a combination of heat therapy and adequate hydration can reduce next day soreness dramatically.
