Diabetes ~ Neuropathy – Feb 2021

We are constantly being told that regular exercise, eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight are the best ways to stay healthy. It is also the best way to help naturally manage diabetes. If you or someone you know or love has diabetes you are probably aware of the ongoing challenge to control your blood sugar. If left untreated or improperly managed diabetes can lead to a variety of life-threatening complications. There is no cure for diabetes but it can be treated and controlled and it is possible for it to go into remission.

Diabetes can cause nerve damage, or neuropathy, especially in the arms, hands, legs and feet. You may experience tingling, numbness, pain, weak muscles, or burning and it can even lead to paralysis or amputation if not properly looked after.

Getting a massage on a regular basis may help prevent or reduce the chances of neuropathy by increasing the circulation of blood and lymph, moving oxygen throughout your body, especially to your extremities, while allowing for more efficient uptake of insulin by the cells.

Living with diabetes can be very stressful and fluctuating blood sugar levels can be hard on our body. Massage is great for relieving stress and improving sleep which also helps us stay healthy.

Creative Wellness Solutions offer three 15-minute massage routines. You can choose from a head and face, upper body, or legs and feet massage, or any combination. For optimal results for someone with diabetes, we highly recommend the upper body; which covers the upper back, lower back, arms and hands, as well as the legs and feet massage.

We provide a convenient massage with innumerable benefits on a comfortable massage chair. You do not need to climb onto a table or remove clothing and no oils are used.
