What You Should Know About Massage Therapy and Massage Cupping at Performance PT

PROVIDENCE, RI – In today’s fast pace world everyone is on the go.  They are running to work, school, errands, their children’s events etc.  We all have responsibilities and need to get things done, but what about your greatest responsibility?  YOU!  We are so busy with taking care of everyone else that many times we forget to take care of ourselves.  Do you recall while traveling on an airplane that if the oxygen mask drops to place it over yourself before helping others?  The same premise applies to Massage Therapy.  Take care of yourself first so you can be at your best to take care of others.

According to the American Massage Therapy Association 88% of people who receive Massage Therapy do so as a contributor to their overall health and wellness with 24% of those being for pain relief.  Additionally, Massage Therapy is also beneficial for stress, depression, anxiety, insomnia etc…  Imagining life without pain, stress and anxiety may seem like a castle in the sky and Massage Therapy is considered by many as a time consuming luxury.  However, you do not have to imagine any longer because Massage Therapy is proven, affordable and recognized as a health care necessity.

As the Massage Therapist at Performance Physical Therapy I perform Massage Therapy as well as Massage Cupping.  Massage Cupping a holistic health method is a suction technique in which the “cups” help to alleviate soft tissues and pull toxins from the muscle.  Traditional Massage combined with Cupping make for a therapeutic healing experience.  The next time you experience back pain, insomnia or shoulder discomfort, give Massage Therapy and Massage Cupping a try.  You may be surprised at what you have been missing.

Performance Physical Therapy operates from 9 Rhode Island locations, with Massage Therapy and Massage Cupping offered at our 49 Seekonk St, Providence location.  Call (401) 230-1126 to schedule an appointment with Jessica Botelho LMT, CMCP.
