We all have days where we don’t like what we see in the mirror. Maybe it’s a bad hair day that you can’t fix or bags under your eyes that won’t go away. Who has time for a solid 8 hours of sleep? Days where you feel a little less confident can be draining. It’s hard to motivate yourself to see how truly beautiful you are when you don’t like your reflection.
Feelings like these are especially common if you suffer from vein health issues like varicose and spider veins. You can’t make them disappear with a curling iron and some makeup. The bulging, twisted veins are unsightly, painful, and embarrassing. All you can do to hide them is to wear pants, even on the hottest of days.
This is why treatment for varicose and spider veins is so important. Some argue that it’s merely a cosmetic issue, but it’s not. Vein issues affect your perception of yourself and your self-confidence. If you can’t feel good showing off your legs, you may avoid social situations like pools or beach days. You may miss out on special moments because you feel insecure and anxious about your body and appearance. You may even struggle with intimacy and body image issues. Sometimes, vein health issues contribute to depression and anxiety.
That’s why we believe so strongly in the treatments we offer. They not only help correct and remove a serious medical issue, but they also help our patients feel good about themselves and their bodies. Patients who seek treatment for vein issues feel a renewed confidence in themselves and freedom from the side effects of vein issues. They have the confidence to enjoy their bodies, participate in fun activities, and wear what feels good.
If you want to feel confident going to the beach, buying a cute skirt or shorts, or showing off your legs to your partner, see us. Don’t let your vein issues rob you of your self-worth and happiness. You’re beautiful inside and out. All our treatments do is help you see that in the mirror.
There are few things better than a massage. Just imagining the dim lights, the soft music, the warm sheets, and the smell of oil can help reduce your stress. If you’ve ever had a good massage, you know that once it’s over, your whole body feels like Jell-o. Everything tight is loose and free, and all the stress and tension are gone.
You might wonder if massage therapy can help if you have vein problems like varicose or spider veins. There are a few benefits of massage therapy for people with vein issues.
It can help reduce pain and stuffiness. Massage therapy can not get rid of vein health issues. Only vein treatment can do that. But some of the accompanying issues like swelling, leg and joint pain can benefit from regular massage therapy.
It can help reduce stress. Stress is bad for your vein health. Constant stress puts extra pressure on your veins and can exacerbate vein problems. Regular self-care and activities that reduce stress like massage therapy are a great way to lower your blood pressure and improve your vein health.
Massage therapy can be a powerful tool for helping relieve some of the symptoms of vein problems like varicose and spider veins, but it should not be considered a treatment. In some cases, massage therapy can be dangerous. Here are a few things to watch out for if you are undergoing massage therapy and have vein problems.
Stay away from deep tissue massage. Spider veins are very delicate to touch and can burst, or the vein can be further damaged from deep tissue massage techniques. In some severe cases, blood clots can be released back into the bloodstream from deep tissue massage.
Make sure you work with a therapist who is trained to work around vein problems. Be wary of any therapist who claims that massage therapy can cure vein issues. It can’t. A trained massage therapist should know to avoid or only lightly touch the area around varicose or spider veins to avoid causing further damage.
If you are considering massage therapy for help with your vein health symptoms, make sure to make an appointment with our doctors first. Massage therapy can be beneficial for your overall health and help with some of the symptoms of vein problems, but it isn’t a cure. The only thing that can do that is treatment from vein specialists, like our doctors.
