In September Women in Leadership welcomed Barb Boxwell, licensed massage therapist and owner of Midland Myofascial Release & Therapeutic Massage. Barb spoke with us on the benefits of therapeutic massage for pain relief, specifically Craniosacral and Myofascial Release therapies.
Many people are not aware that these specific types of massage therapies are an excellent alternative to traditional pain treatments. Patients who have had little success with pain management or have experienced unwelcomed side effects from medication have found relief through Barb’s services. She gave examples of her success with patients who are recovering from painful knee and shoulder surgeries, and those who wish to avoid surgeries in the future.
Barb informed us about how glial cells work in the brain and the function of the glymphatic system. This system creates a path for the brain to eliminate waste, when this path fails, over time the results can cause brain conditions and diseases such as Alszheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It was interesting to learn that these specific therapies can not only help people with physical conditions, but also those who suffer from migraines, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and even children and adults with ADD and ADHD.
Through these specific therapeutic treatments, her clients have found the pain to be significantly diminished or eliminated completely and without side effects. If you or someone you know could benefit from her services, please contact Barb Boxell for a free consultation. She can be reached at 989-859-3998.
