Massage therapy can target a specific muscle, or muscle group or provide relief to the entire body.
If you use massage therapy you may find that your mobility has increased and there is a reduction in muscle fatigue. This is especially the case when the massage is focused on specific areas of the body.
Yoga and Mediation
Yoga practice and meditation stretches the muscles and gives the individual an opportunity to find calm moments throughout the day. Meditation can be a particularly good option for those with limited physical movement.
Aromatherapy or Essential Oils
Aromatherapy or essential oils can create a sense of calm but may also help you with breathing.
While you may find relaxation benefits in using the above strategies, you should always check with a healthcare professional first to ensure it is appropriate for them.
