When you encounter an injury, going through the healing process is frustrating. Until your injury has healed, you may find that you're unable to continue with your usual activities. If you're a dedicated sports fan, this can become particularly infuriating. Although there are lots of medical remedies available, we prefer to help our clients heal naturally. At Soma Spa LLC, we offer Swedish massage in Farmington and other therapies. In this post, we'll help you explore how to enjoy a natural healing process.

Nourish your body

At Soma Spa LLC, we acknowledge that a lot of your healing comes from within. While your body tries to heal your injury, it'll work overtime. From carefully modulating the inflammation process to sending pain signals that encourage you to rest, it does a lot.

If you're going to help your body along, we always recommend nourishing it. Try to focus on avoiding toxin-laden junk food and instead feast on antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables. By eating plenty of antioxidants, you can offset oxidative stress. As your efforts continue, your body will get the support it needs to heal.

Try Ayurvedic treatments

As one of the oldest natural healing systems in the world, Ayurvedic medicine can have a transformative effect on your body. At Soma Spa LLC, we offer ayurvedic treatments to the people of Farmington and the surrounding areas. We'll start your journey by looking at your mind-body type. From there, we can create a healing schedule that balances all your doshas.

With our approach to Ayurveda, you'll be able to balance your energy and mental wellbeing. As there's a strong connection between personal energy, a positive mentality, and accelerating the healing process, balancing your doshas will have a positive effect. We can also recommend other alternative therapies that will make your healing journey easier.

Use Swedish massage in Farmington

We offer Swedish massage in our Farmington spa. Massage is an effective means of stimulating blood flow to the area of your injury. With improved blood flow, you can flush out toxins faster and achieve the right level of inflammation. Additionally, massage is a natural form of pain relief. Although conventional pain relief has its place in healing, it's unwise to become overly reliant on some forms of pain medication. As Swedish massage doesn't involve ingesting anything, you don't need to worry about side effects.

A secondary effect of massage is that you'll lower your stress levels. When you live in a state of persistently elevated stress, you produce more cortisol than usual. One knock-on effect from high cortisol is that your immune system isn't as strong as you need it to be. By reducing some of your stress, you're allowing your body to fully focus on healing.

Get enough rest at night

Sleep is when your body does some of its best healing. You're in a relaxed state, you're not using much energy, and your cells have a chance to rejuvenate. Because of this, we recommend analyzing your current sleep patterns and assessing whether you're getting enough. Ideally, you'll get between seven and nine hours of sleep per night.

If you're not getting enough sleep, start changing some of your habits. For example, maintaining a routine can make it easier for you to fall asleep and stay asleep. Or, you can try reducing the amount of caffeine and alcohol you consume. With every change you make, you'll bring yourself closer to a healing level of sleep.
