A Slight Change to our Massage Week Event

We've made a change to our Massage Week Event

We'd like to say thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in our EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week event.  After going through our first day of this special week, we realized that it would be more accommodating to many people's schedules if we made a slight change to the details of the event.  So from Tuesday, July 17 - 19th, anyone who is in the Firefighter, Law Enforcement, Healthcare or Education Professions can join us for a FREE Massage, Refreshments, a Free Gift and a chance to win a Free Bonus Prize.

Our original goal was to set aside dedicated appreciation days for each of the groups of people mentioned above; however, due to the busy work schedules in each of these fields, some may have been unavailable on those dedicated days.  Our hope is that this adjustment will give a more people an opportunity to benefit from Massage Week & to know how much we appreciate the hard work you do.

SPECIAL HOURS DURING MASSAGE WEEK

We also wanted to make sure everyone is aware that we have different business hours this week.  The updated hours have been added to our google listing and can be found on our Contact Page.  During this week, there is only limited availability for 'regular' appointments.  We will resume regular booking completely on Monday, July 23, 2018.  We apologies if this causes you an inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.  If you have any questions please call 313-638-1542.

Massage Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injuries

Treating Brain Injuries

As we continue to support Brain Injury Awareness Month and #ChangeYourMind about Brain Injury, we’d like to focus on 3 methods of treatment that are available to those who suffer from an Acquired Brain Injury.  We’ll first discuss the benefits of Massage Therapy for patients with a Traumatic Brain Injury.  In future posts, we’ll discuss how these patients can benefit from Physical Therapy and Talk Therapy (consultations with Mental Health Professional). Comprehensive, intensive rehabilitation is the standard of care after brain injury.

 

At Sianna Muscles in Motion we have been treating patients who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury for 15 years.

When a person has a Traumatic Brain Injury after life-saving measures have been performed, Massage Therapy is an excellent form of treatment to incorporate into a patient’s recovery and maintenance plan; especially if they were in a coma for any prolonged period of time.

Massage Therapy will help the person with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

• Increase blood and lymph circulation
• Reduce Spasticity, contracture, or stiffness  
• Helps too to calm the patient’s mood as they adjust to a new normal
• Helps to improve and maintain comfort and mobility if the patient suffers from a prolonged injury and/or ailments.

Massage Therapy compliments the treatment provided by a Mental Health Professional as it helps remove the memory of the trauma that can be stored in the muscles.


Massage for Auto Injuries

A motor vehicle accident is one of the most common causes of a traumatic brain injury.  If you were in an auto accident and are interested in treatment, we invite you to learn more and see the steps to begin treatment by visiting our Massage for Auto Injuries page.

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!

#ChangeYourMind about Brain Injury

How Familiar are you with Brain Injuries?

The truth is many people are unfamiliar with Brain Injuries.  Even if you are aware, you may not fully understand all that is associated with it.  To that end, we are supporting the Brain Injury Association of America in raising public awareness about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families.


The Goal is to de-stigmatize the injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the many types of support that are available.  At Sianna Muscles in Motion, we have the privilege of providing care through therapeutic massage for a variety of patients who have unfortunately sustained a Brain Injury.  Many of the patients we treat have sustained a brain injury due to an accident at the workplace or as a result of a motor vehicle accident.  Although we cannot permanently fix the daily struggles they face, it brings us immense joy to help them improve and maintain their quality of life. 

Throughout the Month of March, we will be sharing information on our Blog and Facebook page to help spread the word and #ChangeYourMind about brain injury.  You'll have an opportunity to learn more Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI), including Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI); you'll learn how Massage Therapy helps patients with an ABI/TBI, and you'll have an opportunity to hear directly from two of our patients who have a Traumatic Brain Injury.

Quick Facts About Brain Injury

• Every 9 Seconds, someone in the United States sustains a brain injury.
• An acquired brain injury (ABI) is an injury to the brain that is not hereditary, congenital, degenerative, or induced by birth trauma.
• More than 3.5 million children and adults sustain an ABI each year, but the total incidence is unknown.

Typical Causes of ABI Include:

• Electric Shock
• Infectious Diseases
• Lighting Strike
• Near Drowning
• Oxygen Deprivation
• Stroke
• Seizure Disorder
• Substance Abuse/Overdose
• Toxic Exposure
• Tumour

How You Can Get Involved

Learn: Learn what you can about Acquired Brain Injuries.  As you learn you will be more compassionate to the afflicted and their families.  You'll also be in a better position to personally provided assistance.

Support: Share what you learn with others.  Raise awareness by sharing posts like this one on your social media profiles.  Anything you post be sure to include the official #ChangeYourMind tag which was introduced by the Brain Injury Association of America.  You can also show your support with official apparel that directly supports the campaign in a visible and monetary way (link to purchase t-shirts/hoodies).

DON'T FORGET TO DETOX!

Indulge your skin (and senses) with regular detox baths. Himalayan minerals or Dead Sea Salts will pull toxins out of the skin and make your muscles feel 'oh so good!' Add your favorite essential oil scent to your bath minerals for ultimate relaxation!

PROTECT YOUR SKIN

Dry heat zaps moisture from the skin. Use a humidifier in winter months. A humidifier imparts moisture to skin, but also assists in keeping sinuses from dryin out - resulting in sinus headaches and infections. And don't overlook a daily moisturizer such as a Natural Body Butter. Shea Butter is a favorite for a beautiful satin finish for all over the body and is also a natural sunscreen!
