Suffering with an autoimmune disorder like multiple sclerosis or arthritis carries with it bouts of physical and emotional distress. Therefore, pain in the joints or other affected areas of the body is a common side effect of such conditions. Sometimes, stress and depression will accompany an autoimmune disorder. So, Sean McGrath offers a variety of methods that will ease the pain and calm emotions. In some cases, massage therapy will strengthen the body’s immune system across many sessions.
Treating the pain related to autoimmune disorders
“Alternative” techniques of healing have been around for centuries. They are helpful in relieving and even healing countless people of many different maladies. Today, massage and acupuncture therapies successfully relieve an assortment of physical and emotional discomforts. However, it is best to find a professional to administer the therapy ensuring proper results.
First, Swedish massage therapy is one technique that helps treat pain and depression associated with autoimmune disorders. Therapists apply long strokes of light to medium pressure on the body. This relieves stress and relaxes muscles. Also, this form of therapy is effective in producing serotonin which relieves stress and depression. Therefore, Reflexology is a great way to relieve pain brought on by autoimmune disorders. Reflexologists say that every function in the human body is “wired up” to your feet and hands. So, massaging selected “nerve zones” will relieve pain in other parts of the body.
Other effective treatments
- Second, for two millenia, Eastern practictioners still use the science of acupuncture. Now, it is a form of therapy that Westerners are using more often. Sean’s Massage Center offers this ancient remediation technique to help autoimmune disorders. Acupuncture utilizes ultrathin needles which stimulate a person’s natural “acupoints.” When administered by a professional, this treatment will relax muscles, which lets blood flow more naturally, and pain subsides.
- Third, heated stone therapy is another technique we use to ease tense muscles. Warm and oily stones will be placed along the targeted areas. Sometimes, the therapist will coordinate cooler stones to manipulate the correct flow of blood through the areas that are affected. As a result, it relieves the pain of autoimmune disorders and a host of other ailments.
