Hello everyone. You all know how important massage is for baby’s growth. Every mom gives a full body massage to her child. Lucky kids. But is this massage therapy restricted only to the kids? Isn’t it beneficial to us to restore the wear and tear of tissues and strengthen the sedentary muscle groups?
The answer is yes. Any professional masseur will tell you that a vigorous massage complimented with healthy lifestyle can work wonders for the body I am going sharing with you few types of massages which are beneficial for your health and body:
Deep tissue massage
This is a massage that goes under the surface of the skin and targets the deep tissue structure of the fascia and muscles.
The masseur will use the palm of her hands, her thumb and even her elbows and knees to dig deep into the body to reach the muscles that need attention.
The strokes are slow but very effective in reviving sedentary muscles.
Also known as trigger point myotherapy, is great for those who suffer from muscle degeneration.
It involves applying alternating levels of pressure to painful muscles and is said to be most effective in curing lower back spasms.
It stimulates circulation to the nervous system and also relaxes tense muscles
It has its origin from japan and uses acupressure techniques mainly with fingers, to bring relief to the muscles and overall rejuvenation.
Many in japan considers this more as a healing therapy and less as a massage as it works through channels of chi or energy that run through the body
It penetrates the deep layers of tissues and helps strengthen muscles, ligaments and tendons
This is one of the most popular massage based on ancient healing process.
Here too the masseur will use hands, knuckles, thumbs, feet and even legs to give a vigorous yoga type of stretches to relive muscle tension.
The oil less massage increases the blood flow in the target areas, which in turn are beneficial for the body.
This massage is scary? Isn’t it?
Is the use of essential oils derived from plants and flowers.
These oils are blended with special creams and rubbed on the body for a good massage
One advantage of aroma therapy over other treatments is that it does not need to work its way through the entire body to treat a particular area
Most essential oils are diluted and these can be massaged directly over the muscle group that needs rejuvenation.
This is my favorite.
Hot Stone Massage
Is a style of massage therapy in which water-treated stones are placed at specific sites on the body to promote relaxation and to help open up the merdians (energy pathways).
Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations.
Cool stones are sometimes used alternately with hot stones.
Massage oils are usually incorporated into the massage treatment.
So girlies which massage are you trying for the body relaxation?
