SunWha graduated from Presbyterian Hospital School of Surgical Technology in 2006. Later that year she developed “frozen shoulder syndrome” which left her with 25% range of motion in her right shoulder. Desperate to find relief she went to medical doctors which told her surgery was her only answer. Looking for a non-invasive approach, she found a licensed massage therapist who fixed her shoulder without surgery. Impressed with the results, she decided to be a massage therapist herself.
The benefits of massage therapy go beyond just relaxation. Massage promotes stress reduction while improving circulation and reducing pain. Often the body can develop scar tissue or adhesions from repeated stress or trauma. Massage therapy aids in the breakdown of these conditions and promotes increased flexibility of the spine and extremity joints.
Toxins that can build up in the body are also released during massage therapy through your blood and lymphatic system which promotes detoxification. Reduced fatigue and improved sleep are also among the added benefits of massage therapy.
Post surgery or sports injury patients can benefit from massage therapy as part of their rehabilitation program as well. Many pregnant women benefit from massage as they feel a decrease in joint pain, muscle pain and stress while experiencing improved labor outcomes and newborn health.
