Massages and Scrubs
Never had a massage and wonder what all the hype is about?
Massage has come along way, it used to be considered a luxury or something sexual, but in the last decade people have become aware that you can help your aches and pains, posture and circulation, stress and overall well being by getting a massage.
The options are varied. If you’re stressed you would go for a relaxing massage with firm enough pressure for circulation and drainage effects, but not too much it tenses you on the table. Sports injury or just tension from unknown reasons or muscular problems you would opt for a sports, therapeutic, acupressure or deep tissue massage. Luxurious and relaxing you could have a hot stone massage this is a massage where hands are predominantly replace by heated stones glided over an oiled body .
There are a number of different techniques for all massages as everyone is trained in different ways. You can shop around till you find someone you feel comfortable with as you will be in your underwear you do need to feel relaxed and confident with your therapist and their technique and pressure.
The overall benefits of massage.
The thing that comes to mind firstly is, have you ever seen the older people walking around with a serious hunched back? This is a case of bad posture and extreme tight unstretched muscles. So massage is a stretching manipulation of the muscles and skin. So it keeps the muscles loose, the skin stimulated and the circulation flowing. The sensory stimulation from a massage is an amazing part of the treatment also as it is very rare the body gets to lie and relax for an hr these days and be stretched and soothed to walk away feeling like marshmallow.
For problems like frozen shoulder wry neck or simply tension headaches massage is hugely beneficial. Most people working in front of a computer will know all too well the stiffness they get from endless hours of sitting. The effects of acupressure helps with that and also an encyclopedia of ailments including sciatic pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow, migraines, tight rhomboids(shoulder blades) and much more.
It s also beneficial for diabetes and other ailments relating to circulation.
