Once upon a time in America, doctors came to the houses of their patients to check up on them, deliver babies, exam the sick in their own beds. Nowadays, it is rare to find anyone who can say “the doctor delivered me in my own house.” However, many customers are finding that same convenience with alternative medical practitioners who are willing to make an old fashioned “house call.”
Mobile massages are increasing in popularity. With today’s world of tight schedules and deadlines, some customers may find it difficult to break away from work, family, and other obligations drive to another location to get a much needed massage. With mobile massage, Sean’s Massage Center reaches out with another convenience for the customer, bringing our services to your home or office.
For a fee of $120 for one hour or $150 for an hour and a half customers can relax in their own home, office, or elsewhere as they get a massage, heated stone therapy, or whatever service they asked for. Most of the services listed on Sean McGrath’s website can be brought to the customer’s specified location.
Relaxation is a key feature in the healing process. When a practitioner from Sean’s Massage Center visits you, they strive to make your experience as relaxing and comfortable as you would find it at the Center, in addition to treating your ailment. You will feel the smooth Aveda oils as they massage. Soothing background music helps build up the ambience of relaxation and healing as our practitioners work.
Sean’s Massage Center
Sean McGrath of Sean’s Massage Center is trained in a variety of techniques and his massages are part of the OSU health benefits. Some of the specialties he will perform in his mobile massage include Swedish massages, prenatal massages, reflexology, couples massages, and other techniques.
The Swedish massage was developed in the latter 18th century by Per Henrik Ling, a Swedish native whose innovative physical therapy was introduced to America in the mid-19th century. Ling’s innovative technique was based on Euro-American medical knowledge of human physiology.
Much of Western “alternative medicine” stems from the Swedish massage. This technique uses light strokes with light to medium pressure which effectively eases muscle tension and stress. When administered by a professional it will encourage blood flow (therefore, oxygen flow) to encourage healing and allow the release of endorphins.
Massages as a form of healing have been around since about 500 years before the birth of Christ, but the medical theories at that time (like some present Eastern practices) seemed more holistic, combining the physical, spiritual, and the mental state of the patient.
Reflexology is another reliable technique, effective in relieving stress-related maladies and other conditions, such as allergies, headaches and depression. It has far-reaching results in dealing with nervousness because it addresses the natural balance of the entire body, much more through than a regular massage. Reflexology experts tell us that every part of your body is in some way “wired up to the hands and (especially) the feet. By stimulating certain pressure points – called nerve zones – the skilled practitioner will bring about positive effect in a corresponding region or function in the human body.
Prenatal massages include a table specifically designed for expectant mothers and will provide a new level of comfort for the full term of her pregnancy. Expectant mothers must endure tumultuous physical and emotional stresses. A pregnancy massage can help calm her emotions and alleviate some of the physical symptoms like joint pain, posture imbalance, and respirational and digestive issues.
