Get To Know Us

Sylvia Boakye Sylvia Naana Gaizy Founder & Trainer

Healthy Touch Physiotherapy is a sole proprietorship owned by Sylvia Boakye Mrs. I have been massaging pregnant women and helping them keep fit and eating balanced diet in my community This passion has consistently been profitable since its inception.My inspiration for Healthy touch physiotherapy came when my first baby was born in (Mid 2008). As first time parents, i magnified minor inconveniences, such as cradle cap or baby acne into something major.   I would get alarmed and rush to the pediatrician's office at the slightest, only to be informed otherwise.

What are the main benefits of working with a personal trainer?

Just as with any realm of expertise, working with a professional trainer gives you access to their knowledge base. A good trainer will be able to tell you exactly which exercises you need to do, how much you need to rest, and what you need to eat. Whilst you could discover this information yourself through comprehensive research, getting into something as vast as exercise comes with too many inherent unknowns to make self study a time effective pursuit.

How long should I rest between workouts?

Rest required between workouts depends on both your conditioning and the nature of your workouts. If you are well conditioned to exercise you may be able to train each day or even twice per day – although almost certainly not the same form of exercise or targeted muscles groups.

How should I plan my sessions?

Anyone aiming to increase their general health and fitness, should do a varied programme of weight and cardio training. When planning your sessions there are 3 areas you should consider: Your Training Experience, Your Goals, Your Preference.

Why Are My Muscles Sore After a Workout?

Soreness timeline: intense during the first 24 hours after exercising, peaks throughout the next 48 hours post-exercise, and goes away within five-to-seven days after the workout. As you adapt to your training load, you will be less sore going forward.

Muscle soreness is a result of high force production. Typically this happens when an exercise is new, meaning you have been lazy and did not work out in a long time, have not trained this particular muscle group, or simply because you are using more weight than you usually do.

Benefits of a Massage

Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:

Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping. It helps you feel relaxed and energized.

Deep massage. This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It’s commonly used to help with muscle damage from injuries.

Sports massage. This is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.

Trigger point massage. This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after.
injuries or overuse.

Reflexology; this practice involving the application of pressure to specific points on the feet and hands. This is done using thumb, finger, and hand massage techniques without the use of oil or lotion.  It is based on a pseudoscientific system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work on the feet and hands causes a physical change to the supposedly related areas of the body.

Benefits of massage

Massage is generally considered part of integrative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Massage benefits can include:

  • Reducing stress and increasing relaxation
  • Reducing pain and muscle soreness and tension
  • Improving circulation, energy and alertness
  • Lowering heart rate and blood pressure
  • Improving immune function

While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Low back pain
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Nerve pain
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain
  • Upper back and neck pain

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.

Risks of massage

Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have:

  • Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication
  • Burns or healing wounds
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Infections
  • Broken bones (fractures)
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • A very low platelet count (severe thrombocytopenia)

Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or if you have cancer or unexplained pain.

Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn’t
