Preventative At Home Care for Improved Health

Whenever I first started my position as a Clinical Massage Therapist in 2004 I had always wanted to help make the world a healthier place. With the population the way it is, I quickly realized I wouldn't be able to give everyone a massage at least once in their life, let alone see everyone on a biweekly basis for acute or preventative care. However, with the ability of online content being available for everyone these days, I can teach people how to take care of themselves at home so they can have a better quality of life! Enter in the premise of this blog series.

In this series we will look at a variety of at home modalities you can use to provide relief from musculoskeletal related pain to improve your quality of life. The modalities we will be discussing that you can do at home include:

As when dealing with any type of medical condition, please do consult your health care provider to make sure that the therapies and modalities discussed in this blog series will be right for you. Also, please realize that while I will discuss the common signs and symptoms associated with various ailments, to receive a proper diagnosis, you should be evaluated in person by your health care provider. The material provided in this blog series should be used in conjunction with one on one treatment by a trained medical professional.

Cheers to using the knowledge I have gained over the years to help you be the best you can be, and to living a happy, healthy lifestyle!
