Benefits of heat therapy
Using heat pads soothes and relaxes the muscle, increases local blood supply, increases metabolism and reduces healing time. With Consistent and long duration of use overnight – we have found that it speeds up the treatment of pain and stiffness for those who are stiff first thing in the morning.
- Examination of blood vessels and increases in blood flow and metabolism.
- Vasodilation = increases in blood flow and results increase in oxygen nutrients and white blood cells to the area.
- Increase in blood flow which speeds up cellular metabolism and enhances the removal of metabolic waste.
- Increased removal of inflammatory exudate.
- Relaxation of abnormal muscle contraction and relief of spasm.
- Decreased joint stiffness from decreased viscosity of synovial fluid.
- Sedative and analgesic effects
When to use heat
- Stubborn, non-settling pain – using heat for a long duration will saturate blood flow to the area in desperate need – creating a relaxation within the fascial and muscle.
- Breaks the pain cycle your muscle or fascia is going through, increase blood flow to refuel contractured muscle
- After myotherapy treatments- will help speed up the tissue healing and repairing phase.
Why Customers Love Mel & Co.
I have been a client of Mel for over 5 years. She is one of a kind in the world of Myotherapy and I can highly recommend. I’m sure Mel has the ability to perform miracles, as recently I hurt my back two weeks before my Wedding. After 2 visits Mel have me back on my feet and dancing again. Very luck to have been introduced to Mel.
I had constant hip, front of groin pain and pelvic pain for over 1 year & i had physio for that 1 year with no relief. I had to stop boxing & running. With Mel, she worked through everything that other therapists wouldn’t and didn’t think to treat. After just 9 sessions 1 x weekly & the pain everywhere has been very minimal, it’s feeling so much better and its going great!
Best nights sleep in ages & feeling fabulous all that’s to you – my thoracic pain and tingling in my hands went away so quickly & I’m getting decent sleep! Thanks Magic Mel
