Our body goes through a lot of functions in a day. We do physical and mental work. We eat foods that don't get digested properly and leave harmful waste substances in the body. The body has the ability to relieve itself of those substances. The liver, lymphatic veins, and kidneys are constantly working to purge the body of any kind of toxins. But there are places in our body that hold these toxins, which causes a variety of health problems in the body. But there’s good news - toxins can be released from the body with the use of physical therapy or massage.
Toxins and Their Effects
Toxins are poisonous substances that are acquired by the body through food or are sometimes produced by the body itself due to weak waste management. Toxins can get accumulated in the body if your digestive system is not working properly or if you have a weak liver or kidneys. Toxins can get accumulated between muscle spaces, joints of the body, and under the skin. Increased amounts of toxins in the body can cause serious health issues. Stress is just one of them. When toxins get accumulated between the muscles, it causes muscular knots and leads to muscular pain. The accumulation of toxins like uric acid in the joints of the body forms crystals and can cause arthritis in the joints. Toxin release is also important for clear skin. Accumulation of toxins in the dermal layer causes clogging of the skin pores, acne, and other skin related problems. A toxic body can never be efficiently functional. Feeling of tiredness and fatigue all day is the sign that you need to release toxins from your body. Increased toxicity in the blood leads to weakening of the immune system. Massage therapy is known to work on muscles and joints and even on other areas of the body. A private massage can be beneficial to overall health, relieve the body of harmful toxins, and give your body and mind a pure feel.

Typically, more than 10,000 people suffer from serious injuries every year due to road accidents. In case you meet with an accident, physiotherapy can be of great help in multiple ways.
Speeds Up the Recovery Process
Patients realize the truly damaging effects of an accident while struggling to return to their regular lives. They find it difficult to accomplish even their daily chores. The challenges generally faced by them are stress, strain, chronic pain, stiffness, chronic headaches and a limited range of mobility.
Physiotherapy improves the patient by increasing their strength, improving flexibility and by reducing the pain.
The patient might feel it very straining to move around after the car accident. Still, a bit of physical activity is better for the patient than merely lying on the bed. Physiotherapy produces body movements which encourage the flow of blood, other fluids and nutrients to the injured parts. The injuries thus heal quickly and the pain reduces significantly.
Prevents Lasting DamagePhysiotherapy can prevent lasting damages such as chronic pain, migraines and degenerative discs. It is crucial for the patient though to seek the physiotherapy treatment as soon as possible while trying to recover after the accident.
May Help Patients Avoid Surgery
Patients suffering from critical injuries must undergo the necessary surgeries as directed by the physicians immediately. However, there would be non-life-threatening scenarios which might not require surgery immediately. These injuries, however, if not taken care of and treated immediately by other methods might require surgery later. The natural wear and tear of the body with age and time might compel the patient to move into the operation theaters.
Physiotherapy may save the day for the patient as it focuses on strengthening muscles, ligaments and tendons. Physical therapy after a car accident may prevent further surgeries for the accident victim.
Can be Effective Even Against Older Car Accidents
Physical therapy after a car accident that has happened quite some time ago can still be effective. The physiotherapy treatment in combination with strength training exercises can be very effective to reduce the pain. Physical therapy restores the normal lifestyle and mobility of the patient.
Physiotherapy is a far better option in comparison to painkillers. Some of the painkillers are addictive. Physiotherapy might help the patients to break the spell of the addictive painkillers.
Effective Against Emotional Trauma
Anyone who has ever met with an accident can relate to the trauma associated with collisions. They are scared of even traveling in vehicles which are similar to the one in which they have met with the accident. Their heartbeat increases as their car come close to another automobile or obstruction. Physiotherapy immediately after the car accident can help victims to overcome this emotional trauma and be their usual self.
Physical therapy after a car accident is beneficial for the automobile accident victims. Get in touch with InHome Physical & Massage Therapy for all of your physiotherapy requirements.
Cervical radiculopathy is commonly known as the "pinched nerve" disease. It occurs due to compression of a nerve at the neck, which compels it to branch out in opposition to the direction of the spinal cord. The common causes of cervical radiculopathy are arthritis, tumor, spinal stenosis, ruptured disk (especially among young people) and the usual ‘wear and tear’ which our spines suffer as we age. About 83.2 cases of cervical radiculopathy are reported per 1,00,000 population annually.
There are several benefits of physical therapy services for patients suffering from cervical radiculopathy.
Application of Manual Cervical Traction
The expert providing physical therapy services can apply manual cervical traction to relieve the stress and pressure from your spine and the cervical region. He gently applies massage to your spine and the neck region. It generally provides relief from pain immediately.
Management of Your Pain
The initial goal of the physical therapist is to reduce or relieve your pain. The therapist might apply ice packs or ask you to wear a soft cervical collar. As your intensity of the pain lessens, you will sleep better. The proper management of your pain will improve your general well-being and lifestyle.
One of the first things that the physical therapist focuses on is to correct your posture. He educates you on your proper posture. Your incorrect posture might have been the main reason for your cervical radiculopathy in the first place.
Also, your posture affects the intensity of your pain. Better posture would decrease or even eliminate the pain. Your therapist might even ask to bring about specific changes at your workplace to ensure proper posture for you. He can also instruct and guide you on how to go about your daily chores especially which require the movement of your spine and neck muscles like bending, lifting or reaching out to grab something.
The physical therapist would also instruct you on functional exercises. These exercises will help you to accomplish your job-related tasks confidently. The therapist would instruct you on how to reduce the strain during your office activities which affect your neck or spine.
Change of Positions at Regular Intervals
Maintaining the same position during lengthy tasks would unnecessarily produce stress and strain on your spine. It might further deteriorate your condition. That is the reason the therapists providing you physical therapy services insists on switching your body positions at regular intervals especially during prolonged tasks.
Exercises to Strengthen Your Muscles
The physical therapist will locate the muscles requiring strengthening. Exercises for neck stability will be good for you. He can develop and schedule an exercise chart to target the strengthening of your neck, shoulder, upper back, and arms.
Physical therapy is really beneficial for a cervical radiculopathy patient. If you are a patient living in or around Edmonton, get in touch with InHome Physical Therapy & Massage for the best physical therapy services.
Massage therapy has been known for its healing capabilities throughout centuries and civilizations. The use of massage as a physical therapy can be seen in the wall paintings of the ancient civilization of Egypt. Massage therapy has been scientifically proven to help in the treatment of not only stress disorders and muscular injuries but also neurological imbalances in the body. Massage techniques used by physiotherapists are differentiated according to your problem. There is a specialized massage therapy with special stroking techniques for different problems. InHome Physical therapy and Massage can treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and help people suffering from the disease and help them to get along with life a little easier.
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Parkinson’s disease generally affects people over the age group of 60. Parkinson’s disease hampers that part of our brain that is associated with the movement of our body. Two chemicals, namely dopamine and acetylcholine are responsible for regulating and controlling movement. These chemicals are supposed to be in perfect harmony for the brain to receive and send signals to and from the body. An imbalance in these chemicals damages the portion of our brain called basal ganglia that affects the movement of our body. This same imbalance of chemicals has been connected to Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s disease causes slowing down of voluntary movements of arms and legs and causes muscle stiffness. Walking becomes harder and balance is lost. Lightheadedness while standing is common and the body posture becomes stooped. In later stages, it causes problems in swallowing and loss of smell. The patients also face troubles in rising from a sitting position. Parkinson’s disease also causes the patient to develop a speech impediment. The patient can’t speak properly or keeps mumbling in a monotonous tone.
How does massage therapy help with Parkinson’s disease?
Massage therapy is known to treat neural and muscular disorders. A specialized massage therapy by our therapist at InHome Physical Therapy and Massage who targets the symptoms of Parkinson’s diseases can help the patients to regain functionality and muscle strength and partially helps them to normalize and control their movements.
If you have noticed symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in your body or if there is a loved one who suffers from this paralyzing disease, contact us at InHome Physical Therapy and Massage in Edmonton and our therapist will help manage some of the symptoms of this debilitating disease and reduce its effects.
A sports massage differs from a generic massage due to mostly the recipients’ requirements. In generic massage, the main aim of the recipient is to get relaxed or treated. The recipient of the sports massage seeks it as a more of regular health care. There is a considerable difference between the skill level and techniques required for generic massage and sports massage. All professional athletes use sports massage regularly.
Drenches Lactic Acid Formed in the Muscles
Lactic acid is formed in the muscles as the athlete practices strenuously. During strenuous exercises, our body generally needs oxygen delivered at a higher rate than our respiratory system’s ability to deliver. The muscles, instead, break down glucose to generate energy using lactate (which gets converted from the stored pyruvate).
The accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles prevents athletes from training further. Sports massage smooths the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid to the muscles. The lymphatic system clears the lactic acid formation. Sports massage thus helps athletes to get in shape as soon as possible for the next training session.
Regular sports massage increases the flexibility of the athletes. It relaxes and brings back the muscles to the original state. It also enables athletes to expand their range of motion gradually.
Reduces Chronic Pain
Sometimes athletes have to bear with unavoidable chronic pain for a considerable time. Regular sports massage decreases the pain especially in certain musculoskeletal conditions like pain in neck, shoulders, lower back and knees.
Athletes training hard to achieve their goals can easily overstretch and damage their muscles, tendons, ligaments or even joints. Sports massage stretches the connective tissue. Massage also improves the blood and other bodily circulation systems. The improved circulation not only prevents muscle adhesion but also helps to dissolve it. Sports massage therapy also reduces the risk of injuries by priming the muscles upfront for the strenuous exercises.
Aids in Recovery During Rehabilitation from Injury
Two things that athletes are most afraid of are bad form and injuries. A sports massage can be extremely beneficial during the rehabilitation period. This massage is particularly effective for injuries due to pulled muscles.
Athletes generally suffer from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) once they have tried a new exercise. The reasons for DOMS, though still unclear, it is usually assumed due to connective tissue damage or due to the body’s inflammatory reaction. The soreness generally peaks after 48 hours. It can take up to a week for the soreness to wither away completely.
Research shows that sports massages help athletes to reduce stress and recover swiftly. If you are an aspiring sportsperson, a sports massage is a must for you. Call InHome Physical Therapy to book your appointments in Calgary now.

Neurohormones are generally the specialized hormones secreted in the hypothalamus region of the brain by neurosecretory cells. They are essentially chemical messenger molecules that propagate to different parts of the body in order to pass on information.
Massages initially started as a way of relaxation or to reduce the stress in muscles. Soon, numerous benefits of massage therapy started getting revealed. Modern science reveals that massage therapy is not only good for our body but also for our mind and the nervous system. Massage therapy directly or indirectly induces secretion of hormones that make us happy, relaxed and more focused. Some of these neurohormonal effects have been listed in this blog post.
Increase in dopamine levels
Massage therapy induces dopamine secretion. Dopamine acts as a neurotransmitter. Its primary job is to transmit information between the nerve cells. Dopamine levels generally regulate the emotions, focus and mood.
Higher serotonin levels
Massage therapy indirectly helps increase serotonin levels. Serotonin secretion is generally induced by the dopamine hormone. As a result of the surge in dopamine secretion, serotonin is also released. Serotonin controls cravings for food, sex etc.
Reduces adrenaline and norepinephrine levels
Massage therapy calms down the massage receiver by reducing the adrenaline and norepinephrine levels. Adrenaline and norepinephrine levels are increased by the emotions fear or anger. These were originally associated with the primitive instincts of ‘flight or fight.’ Though most interactions by human beings in the modern society don’t need these instincts, these instincts generally kick in automatically.
Reduces cortisol levels
Cortisol, commonly known as the ‘stress hormone,’ is produced in the adrenal gland. It is a steroid hormone. It works with other hormones to regulate mood, motivation and fear. Massage therapy helps in reduction of cortisol level. The reduction capability of cortisol by massage therapy is the also one of the main reasons that massage therapy has a calming effect on the receiver.
Increase in oxytocin levels
Oxytocin is a binding hormone that promotes the feelings of care and attachment. The release of oxytocin levels in the brain effects emotional, cognitive and social behaviors. Oxytocin is also associated with childbirth and lactation. Massage therapy regulates and increases the oxytocin level.
One must be careful and get massage therapy from professionals only. As it can be noted from above, massage therapy certainly helps in secretion, regulation and balancing of multiple hormones. It is helpful in inducing the parasympathetic state. In the parasympathetic state, the body and the nervous system calm down. This phase is required by our body to re-energize and rejuvenate itself.
Insomnia or sleeplessness hits many of us. Reports suggest that "About 40% of the Canadian population is living with a sleep disorder, insomnia being the most prevalent." That’s probably why, so often, you keep staring at the ceiling every 15 minutes when you’re in bed. And then, when it’s almost morning and you get a mellow breeze of sleep from exhaustion or simply boredom, you’re awoken by your alarm clock and you have to get back to being efficiently productive throughout the day.
Importance of Sleep
The most important need of the human body is sleep. Our body needs at least 8 hours of daily sleep. During these hours, the human body utilizes the nutrition from the food intake and repairs the tissues and organs of the body. Not getting enough sleep during the night can make you fuzzy and irritable throughout the day. The rate of mental and physical functioning also dives down. Getting the required amount of deep sleep at night freshens up the system of your body and keeps you energized for the next day. Not getting enough sleep can have negative side-effects on your mental condition and can result in increased states of depression, which if worsens, may lead to schizophrenia or social anxiety. Keeping your brain and emotional synapses healthy is very important for proper functioning throughout the day.
Choosing massage for sleep
In the worst case scenarios of insomnia, you might have seen people utilize sleeping pills to get deep sleep. But sleeping pills wear away and their effects stop showing once your body has developed a resistance for the drug. Use of alcohol and tobacco is prevalent among people trying to get some sleep and release everyday stress. But alcohol and tobacco are bad for health in the long run. Studies and research on human anatomy have shown that a specialized massage is the best cure for insomnia and other sleep-related problems like muscular pain or back pain that doesn’t let you sleep.
The working process of massage therapy for sleep
Studies of neuroscience have provided enough proof to support the benefits of massage on the mental and physical state of the human body. Massage has proven to be an effective cure for physical injuries like sprains and whiplash. Massage changes the state of our nerves and calms down the pain receptors, encouraging muscle relaxation and removal of lactic acids built up in the muscles that are used more often during your day. A specialized massage therapy works with the chemical production of the body and releases the acidic properties and toxins that alleviate pain in the muscles. When you are not getting sleep, it is because chemicals like lactic acid are released by the body. A therapeutic massage helps in reverting this chemical balance and helps the release of serotonin that is the natural pain-killing enzyme secreted by our body. Massage helps in keeping the flow of serotonin through our body equalized so that the body feels fully relaxed and pain-free so you can have a deep comfortable sleep.
If you’re stressed out because of your busy working schedule and are overwhelmed by muscular pain and sleeplessness, contact our physical therapists at In-home Physical Therapy and Massage and get one step closer to fulfilling sleep.
Every day, we come face to face with a different set of problems and challenges that grind our gears and eat up our strength. Many of us who have desk jobs, physical work, or jobs that include a lot of traveling run out of juice at the end of the day and don’t even have the mood or will for a little recreation. And then we have to do it all over again with every new day. Every day stress can affect the physical and mental health of a person, which not only affects productivity but could also cause a person to fall into depression. Removal of mental and physical stress is very important if you wish to be happy in life. Massage therapy can help with the removal of stress from your system and renew you with energy to take on life.

Stress is generally a byproduct of physical and emotional burnouts. During stress, the cortisol level in your body increases. Your body usually seeks more energy during stressful and tensed situations. Cortisol provides your body with the necessary energy by releasing the stored energy (in the form of glucose) stored in the body. This is the additional energy required by you in a ‘fight or flight’ situation. The constant high cortisol levels over a long duration increases the percentage of glucose in the blood. It might finally result in you having a high blood sugar level in the long term. The disease generally related to high blood sugar level (hyperglycemia) is diabetes.
