Organic massages for joint pain, fatigue


Organic-massagesHow do you counter a backbreaking week that leaves you exhausted? What have you done to reduce the persistent back ache resulting in sleepless nights? Do stress and fatigue accompany you all the time? If the answer to all the above questions is yes, then you are in dire need of a relaxing massage.

Massages have been around for thousands of years. There are countless techniques, pressure styles, and movements that involve pressing, rubbing and manipulating muscles and soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, elbows and forearms are also used to apply deep pressure to the tissues. The techniques and approaches used today have their roots in ancient Eastern and Western civilizations when the use of touch for healing and rejuvenation was in vogue. Multiple forms of massages have emerged since then and most techniques are customised for specific treatments – relieve pain, relax tense muscles, heal injuries, and prevent illnesses.

Dr Ritesh Kumar, Consultant Physiotherapist agrees, “Medical evidence shows that massage therapy proves beneficial for a variety of health conditions. It is in fact becoming an important element in health and wellness. Many patients come to me with chronic back and knee pain. I usually recommend them to seek help from professional massage therapists instead of going for surgery or pain killers.”

One of the few places in Delhi that offer exclusive massage therapies is Ishana Nature Spa. With their centres in Saket, Chattarpur and IGI Airport, expert therapists from Thailand have been called in to provide individually-tailored treatments. All their products are organic so as to tender a pure treatment devoid of any impact on the environment. Rakhi Mahajan, Brand Director Ishana Nature Spa who herself suffers from juvenile arthritis says, “I take a session of the Moksha leg and foot massage almost every month. It revives my feet and body fully enabling me to run around for meetings and other work.”
