We may not think about it very much, but our physical health and comfort has quite a strong impact on our mental health and happiness. Whether it’s being cold and wet outside on a rainy day, skipping lunch after you didn’t get a great night of sleep, or a bit of recurring hip pain when you stand up, humans aren’t invincible and when we feel a bit of discomfort in our bodies, it can have a consistent negative impact on our mindsets and our lifestyles. Even the smallest of discomforts, like a twinge of hunger or a consistent soreness when you wake up, can not only hinder the activities or lifestyle choices you make, but it can also instigate a frustrated mental environment in your head, which can make you much more susceptible to poor moods and anxious thoughts. Our physical comfort plays a vital role in our happiness and independence, so taking care of your physical comfort should be a priority.
But what exactly can you do to take care of your physical comfort (or take care of any physical discomfort) that hinders your mind, and your life? While it isn’t the answer to all of life’s physical discomfort, massage therapy can offer an incredibly relaxing and therapeutic solution to plenty of the physical discomfort you may be experiencing. Whether it’s specific and consistent muscle pain, or just an unrelenting tightness in your body from stress, massage therapy can provide a highly-effective method to help your body relax and recuperate, giving you the physical comfort you need to be mentally comfortable. And when you get a massage therapy appointment from a trusted wellness institute like Nu Image Institute in Elgin, you can feel confident in the catered quality of your massage, and the professionalism and experience of the massage therapists providing it.

Treat your body right, with massage therapy from Nu Image Institute
Massage Therapy Services
General Body or Specific Location
Massage therapy can offer the relief and relaxation you need, whether it’s a general body massage, or targeting a more specific area. When you are discussing with our massage therapist what you would like out of your massage therapy session, this is when you can determine what type of massage you need. Maybe you have a consistent sore spot every morning, or your back is still pretty sore from a workout; our massage therapist can target those specific areas to provide the relief that will do the most good. Maybe you don’t have any specific locational pain or aches, and you just really want to be loosened up all over and enjoy a relaxing and therapeutic massage; our massage therapist can offer that too, and provide a full body massage that will provide you with the more general relief you are looking for.
Sports Injuries and Deep Tissue
Our massage therapy services can also provide supplemental rehabilitation massages for certain sports injuries, as well as deep tissue massages for stubborn knots and other tight areas. Massage therapy is not a replacement for physical therapy if you have endured a sports injury, but it can supplement your physical rehabilitation efforts by helping loosen up and recuperate the muscles surrounding your injury (if approved by your physical therapist). Our deep tissue massages can also solve certain tightness problems that can develop over time. A deep tissue massage digs in deep to really loosen up muscle tightness that can be occurring in deeper tissue. This type of massage can feel slightly uncomfortable with the amount of pressure required to reach the deeper tissue, but our massage therapists can adjust their methods to cater to your specific needs.
Another type of massage therapy we offer at Nu Image is lymphatic massages, which help support the natural drainage of waste that your lymphatic system performs through smooth muscle tissue. However, sometimes your lymphatic system can have issues that cause that fluid waste to build up, which can cause pain and discomfort. A lymphatic massage intends to release that build up through clearing, and reabsorption. Clearing is performed by gentle massages on the targeted lymph node areas, creating a vacuum effect that allows for the waste fluid build up to flush out. Reabsorption uses a similarly gentle massage technique that works to redistribute the built up fluid to a more natural spread and flow throughout your body tissue. With a consistent lymphatic massage like the ones we offer at Nu Image Institute, you can get the physical relief you are looking for.
