GLEN ELLYN, Ill., Sept. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The DuPage Health & Wellness Center encourages anyone suffering from emotional and physical stress, chronic pain or is recovering from injury to include massage in their treatment program. While the benefits of massage upon sore muscles as well as a general relaxation technique are widely known, often massage can be used to treat other ailments or conditions as well as the mental and physical symptoms related to stress, injury, and pain. A patient looking to accelerate healing from an injury, improve the condition of skin, reduce pain, increase mobilization and assist muscle recovery from exercise will greatly benefit from one of several types of massage offered at the DuPage Health & Wellness Center.

Not all massages are created equal. Several different types of services are available to clients depending upon their needs, general level of physical activity, and personal preferences. Active patients looking for relief from the stresses of training or assistance with flushing lactic acid from the body might try a Sports Massage, Shiatsu, Swedish, or Thai Massage. Patients with lingering pain from an ongoing injury or ailment would perhaps request Deep Tissue, Swedish, or Tui Na massage techniques. Individuals who would like a more gentle massage might want to speak with a therapist familiar with Cranio-Sacral Therapy techniques. Massages are up to individual preference; and the right massage therapist will be able to temper a spa experience to each individual patient.

Keeping the body working optimally is a matter of giving it what it needs. Muscles become sore and tired from overuse, the build up of lactic acid, or trauma related to injury. Therapists at DuPage Health & Wellness Center are committed to a holistic approach to wellness. One of the clinic’s top clinicians, Dr. Richard Valdez, sums it up best: “We focus on whole-body health approach centered on treating the true cause of a person’s discomfort or condition, instead of just the symptoms themselves.”

Each patient who walks through the doors of DuPage Health & Wellness comes for a different reason, and the clinic is committed to treating these individuals as such. After a comprehensive study of the ailment that brought an individual, the healthcare professionals create a plan of action with the patient in order to best service their healthcare needs. Often, ongoing wellness is a matter of approaching the body from several different avenues that traditional doctors offices will not always provide. With such therapies as massage, chiropractic, spinal decompression, acupuncture, nutrition counseling, lifestyle advice, and corrective exercise programs, clinicians at DuPage are able to provide patients with a full blueprint to living a lifestyle more completely in keeping with their wellness.

DuPage Health & Wellness Center, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, is a holistic health organization dedicated to helping patients live fuller, healthier, pain-free lives.
