Our Woodland Hills Massages Expedite Rehabilitation from Surgery

Rehab massage expedites recovery from surgery. Studies funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) have found massage beneficial in improving weight gain in HIV-exposed infants and facilitating recovery in patients who had undergone abdominal surgery. At the University of Miami School of Medicine's Touch Research Institute, researchers have found that massage is helpful in decreasing blood pressure in people with hypertension, alleviating pain in migraine sufferers and improving alertness and performance in office workers.

In medicine, surgical procedures are many times the only way to achieve lasting relief although the surgery itself is just one step in maintaining long-term success and results.

Many consider the most important component of a successful surgical procedure to be the post rehabilitation process. It is during this process that natural movement is re-learned, and freedom of movement is reinforced. Massage plays an important role as a supplement to standard rehabilitation procedures.

By increasing circulation and relaxing muscles, our Woodland Hills massage therapy helps the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs which allows the rehabilitating areas to become more flexible and heal at an accelerated rate.
