Happy New Year | | Kaigo Health Partnership

New beginnings, reset, start anew, resolutions… the various facets of a fresh new year! Do let the resolutions be guidelines and not laws for your abstinence and restrictions. Definitely prioritize the main operator aka vessel of your life.. your own body’s health!  Health is the basic foundation of the ability to be productive, expand, focus and build your life’s goals.

As a firm believer in health is wealth, as of 2017 Rhemedy By Rhed Therapeutic Massage has allied our practice with the innovative yet intimate health concierge company, Kaigo Health. The excerpts from their website explains this brilliant FREE service paid for by allied health practitioners, like ourselves:”Kaigo is your 24/7 Health Assistant, Advocate, and Coach collaborating with a team of amazing doctors.

How It Works

First, jump on a quick chat with Kaigo to share your health goals. Then, select one or more doctors from our list of highly vetted and verified health professionals who can help you attain your goal. Next, create a simple health plan with the help of your care team. We have a variety of preset plans or you can create a custom one. Finally, set an achievable goal or two for the first few weeks, like taking medication daily and tracking blood pressure. These little bursts of success will help give you more confidence and will become more and more effortless as time goes on. Keep in mind that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” so start small and build up gradually.Kaigo uses a powerful dashboard to keep an eye on your progress and deliver targeted support at the right time. After you reach your goal we’ll enter the maintenance mode which requires less effort and oversight. Kaigo will still monitor your vitals so that we can easily identify when to provide additional support.

Select Your Care Team

Kaigo will help you select a group of high quality doctors and specialists that accept your preferred method of payment to serve on your care team. Can’t get rid of those annoying rashes? Expecting your first baby? Just got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease? Kaigo will connect you with a compassionate and caring primary care doctor, allergist, gynecologist, registered dietitian, and much more.

Create an Action Plan

Kaigo and your team will get to work co-creating an action plan with goals that matter to you. Your team will get updates in real time so they can track and manage your care with ease. Whether you’re dealing with a chronic illness or just trying to lose a few pounds (and keep them off), your Kaigo care team is central to helping you form healthy habits and develop the motivation to stay the course.

We are super excited to partake in this comprehensive system to better your health as our clients and be supportive of the path to maintain your health as well as improve.

5 Healthy Reasons To Receive Massage Therapy


5 Healthy Reasons To Receive Massage Therapy

5 Healthy Reasons To Receive Massage Therapy

Upon hearing the word massage, many people immediately think of going to a spa and spending some quality “me-time.” Sure, massage can help put your mind and body at ease. But its benefits extend beyond providing you that feeling of comfort and relaxation.

The manipulation of soft tissues has several health benefits that you may not readily realize, and it is due to these effects that massage therapy must be incorporated into your routine. The following are five benefits of massage therapy and why you should consider it more than just a pampering treat.

1. Relieve stress

Relieve stress

Everyone would agree that after a massage therapy session, you simply feel calm and relaxed. In fact, stress relief is one of the primary benefits of receiving a bodywork treatment. Contrary to popular belief, stress isn’t always bad. Stress is actually necessary to perform everyday functions and prevent accidents, such as hitting the brakes when another vehicle suddenly storms in front of you on the road. Too much stress, however, can be detrimental to your health.

Several studies show that even a single session of massage therapy can immensely reduce stress. This is because massage helps reduce your heart rate, insulin levels and cortisol levels. By adding therapeutic massage in your routine, you can feel and look healthier.

2. Improve posture

Improve posture

Today’s generation is notorious for bad posture. Desk workers are particularly at risk, as they need to sit for hours on end day after day. And only a small portion of the population takes the time and effort to practice measures that would permanently help them improve their posture. The most common manifestations include pain in the neck, back and glutes.

Thankfully, this can be corrected by receiving massage. Regular massage therapy sessions can help reinforce the natural movements of different body parts, allowing your body to get back on track. It also helps reduce muscle soreness and promotes pain-free posture.

3. Strengthen the immune system

Strengthen the immune system

You might wonder, “How can something done on the outside help improve things on the inside?” Many might think of this simply as a marketing ploy by massage therapists and spa owners, but there are plenty of studies that back it up.

For instance, one study showed that HIV patients who received a 45-minute massage therapy session 5 days a week for 1 month experienced an increase in production of cells which are considered the first line of defense in the immune system. Massage has also been shown to improve the cytotoxic capacity of the immune system, which is the activity level of the natural “killer” cells.

4. Improve circulation and lower blood pressure

Improve circulation and lower blood pressure

As mentioned, one session of therapeutic massage offers a wealth of health benefits. Just imagine what it can do if done on a regular basis. One of the best long-term effects of massage therapy is improved blood circulation. This is a result of the pressure created during the massage, regardless of the technique used. This pressure causes blood to flow through the congested areas, which then allows new blood to flow in. This also flushes lactic acid from the muscles, the accumulation of which is associated with chronic muscle fatigue and soreness.

Massage can also help patients with high blood pressure. Many think that this medical condition comes with several symptoms. In reality, though, it has none, earning it the nickname “the silent killer.” Massage therapy has been proven to be an effective way to lower blood pressure naturally. Receiving massage therapy on a regular basis decreases both diastolic and systolic blood pressure.

5. Recover from physical injury

Recover from physical injury

Rehabilitating a physical injury can be a tedious and painful process. Many find that a physical rehabilitation program is insufficient to restore the affected area to its pre-injury state. Massage therapy plays a critical role in supplementing injury rehabilitation procedures. Relaxing the muscles and promoting circulation in the affected area allow blood to deliver much needed oxygen and other nutrients. This helps improve flexibility and range of motion. With the right injury massage therapy, the patient can expect the area to be healed at an accelerated rate.

Studies indicate that there is an increasing number of patients who seek therapeutic massage to heal broken bones and burns as well. Massage can reduce stiffness and improve mobility, two problems often experienced when recovering from a broken bone. Burn patients also report less itching, discomfort and depression after receiving three months of massage therapy alongside their skin rehabilitation program.

Find A Massage Therapist Today

It is important to understand that the benefits of massage therapy are more than skin deep. Incorporating this form of self-care into your routine plays a huge role in maintaining your health for years to come. Massage is often viewed as a luxury, but it’s a worthy investment that provides numerous therapeutic benefits. It is recommended to find a professional massage therapist who can help establish a regular treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
