Benefits of Massage Therapy at Tru Glo Medspa

Naples Med Spa Touts Key Benefits of Massage Therapy

The practice of using massage to heal injuries, relieve pain, reduce stress, and prevent and cure illnesses has roots in ancient Eastern and Western civilizations. The earliest written records about massage therapy came from Egypt and China between 3,000 and 2,500 B.C. However, a sacred form of massage known as Ayurveda is thought to have emerged in India before 3,000 B.C., with the first written texts detailing its principles and practices between 1,500 and 500 B.C. The ancient Greeks and Romans heartily adopted massage for health purposes and, when combined with aromatic oils, as a beautifying skin treatment.

Of course, you don’t need to go back to ancient times to get massage’s health and beauty benefits, as massage therapy is recognized today as a respected component of holistic health care. In Southwest Florida, patients can secure the invigorating, tension-easing, stress-reducing benefits of a medical spa massage at Naples-based Tru Glō Medspa.

From deep tissue massage to reflexology and beyond, our licensed massage therapists are passionate about addressing the unique physiological needs of each patient while promoting overall wellness and stress relief through massage. And our med spa is pleased to welcome Daniel Smith as our newest licensed massage therapist. Whether you want to book a massage session with Daniel or Miriam Alas, here are the benefits you can secure from massage therapy in Naples at Tru Glō Medspa.

Physical Benefits of Massage Therapy

Ancient Asian cultures believed that massage helped correct energy imbalances in the body. Massage, they believed, restored balance by easing pathways within the body to promote harmonious energy flows. Along with benefitting overall daily health, they believed that enhancing energy flows helped the body heal itself. The ancients may have been on to something, as massage eases pathways within the body in ways that promote the flow of energy-supporting and health-enhancing factors. This can be seen in the following physical benefits of massage therapy:

  • Improves Circulation—massage enhances blood flow, increasing oxygen and nutrient delivery into muscles and tissues.
  • Reduces inflammation—along with increased blood flow, massage stimulates lymphatic drainage, which can help reduce inflammation in joints and tissues.
  • Enhances Immune Function—massage’s lymphatic system stimulation also helps the body remove toxins and provide greater support to the immune system.
  • Provides Pain Relief—massage stimulates the brain’s release of endorphins, natural painkillers that disrupt pain signals to the brain.
  • Eases Muscle Tension—the careful application of pressure and stretching of muscles alleviates built-up tightness, improves flexibility, and reduces muscle spasms.
  • Increases Energy Levels—the boost in circulation, ease of muscle tension, and release of stress-reducing chemicals and hormones can enhance the body’s energy levels.
  • Reduces Risk of Injury—easing muscle tension through massage improves joint mobility and makes movement easier, reducing the risk of injuries.

Mental Health Benefits of Massage

Along with recognizing the physical benefits of massage, the ancient cultures believed its ability to restore balance in the body and enhance energy flows supported one’s emotional health. Indeed, recognized mental health benefits of massage therapy include:

  • Eases Stress and Promotes Relaxation—Massage helps the body reduce stress hormone levels while increasing mood-enhancing serotonin and dopamine levels. This helps lower stress and induce relaxation, which is conducive to positive overall health.
  • Boosts Mental Clarity—the reduced tension and increased relaxation provided by massage can improve one’s mental clarity and focus.
  • Supports Quality Sleep—reductions in stress and tension combined with enhanced reduction lead to improved sleep quality and sleeping patterns.
  • Improves Mood—massage stimulates the release of endorphins, which boosts one’s mood and helps alleviate depression.
  • Emotional Well-Being— massage therapy’s physical touch and human connection can enhance feelings of comfort and emotional well-being.

Massage Can Help Address Specific Health Issues

Of all the ancient cultures, the Greeks and Romans utilized massage the most as a therapeutic treatment for specific health conditions. Today’s medical practitioners recommend massage therapy as an adjunct treatment for numerous health issues, including:

  • Soft tissue strains and injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular disorders
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Headaches
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Insomnia
  • Nerve pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Carolyn G

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.

Summer H

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Love Everything About this Place

I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.
