Choosing Your Massage Therapist
With thousands of years of history as a healing art, Massage Therapy recognizes the importance of touch to comfort, heal and nurture. Massage Therapy uses various soft tissue manipulation techniques to treat stress, pain, and various physical conditions and disorders.
The right massage therapist will assess your body’s soft tissue and joints and administer massage treatments to relieve pain and symptoms of stress. Massage therapy can also develop, maintain, rehabilitate and augment physical function.
If you’re feeling stress in your muscles from sports, sitting on a computer for too long, driving for long hours or any other strenuous activities, regular massage sessions will help relieve the pain.
Massage works by acting on and manipulating the body using pressure, tension and motion to tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin or organs (e.g., gastrointestinal).
Effects of a massage include pain relief, reduction in stress, reduced blood pressure and heart rate, prevention/reduction of scar tissue, aids lymphatic flow and improves sleep.
The muscles of your abdominal wall assist in forced exhalation through compression of the abdominal cavity. Healthy abdominal muscles are extremely important clinically in supporting the spine and the abdominal viscera.
Many patients are unaware that abdominal massages help relieve the painful points in these muscles. The abdomen has the effect of pulling the body forward and forcing the back muscles to contract rapidly. The sudden movement can cause extreme back and abdominal pain.
If you’re suffering from abdominal or back pain, abdominal massage can help relieve the pain.
