Therapeutic Ultrasound Massage
What to expect during session: Ultrasound is essentially a machine that uses sound waves to generate heat within a body part by using a probe. And, in a circular motion, Ultrasound gel is used on all surfaces of the head in order to reduce friction and assist in the transmission of the ultrasonic waves. The waves are generated by a piezoelectric effect caused by the vibration of crystals within the head of the wand/probe. It has been shown to cause increases in tissue relaxation, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown. The effect of the increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and,In cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal,
Benefits: Ultrasound carries three primary benefits. These are the speeding up of the healing process due to increased local blood flow; decrease in pain as swelling and chronic inflammation are reduced; and softening scar tissue with gentle massage of muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
