September is Pain Awareness Month!

It is a time when many  organizations work to “raise public awareness of issues in the area of pain and pain management.”

We are keenly aware of the debilitating effects of pain here at Chiltonic because many of our clients visit us to relieve pain. For example, our clients utilize Whole Body Cryotherapy and spot cryotherapy treatments to relieve their pain and inflammation. And now we are so excited to announce that we recently added one more modality to manage pain at Chiltonic . We have added Cryo & Thermal massages.

Normally when we hear about massages, we think about swedish, deep tissue or sports massage where the massage therapist uses his or her bare hands to provide the services.  These types of massages are fairly effective. The goal is usually to relax the muscles, improve circulation, relieve pain, maintain flexibility, prevent injury, help recovery and relieve tension in the body.  And sometimes the deeper the massage, the more painful it can be. So here is an instance where we may be trying to relieve pain but the process we use to do it may cause some pain.

Massage technology has significantly evolved and now we are able to provide even more effective massage results using a handheld device – a special wand which delivers hot and/or cold massages.  A well trained massage technician can use this wand to rub or knead the muscles and other soft tissues and produce incredible results, like pain relief without the added pain of certain deep tissue massages

We previously discussed how effective hot and cold therapy can be for pain.  Here at Chiltonic, our ability to provide these specialized massages to our clients using a special wand has resulted in significant pain improvement. Massages are great to relieve pain and discomfort and there are many scientific studies to support the effectiveness. I took the time to educate myself and read a few articles with scientific support about pain and massages. They discuss how we can reduce pain effectively using massages as well as nutrition. You might find these helpful as well.

For this reason, we are extending a special offer to all our clients during the month of September.

Chiltonic is offering a 15% discount on all pain related services. These services include whole body cryotherapy, cryo spot treatments as well as our recent addition of cryo and thermal massages.
