When many people think of massage it is often stereotyped as a luxury pamper treatment or – at the other extreme – something only those who are highly athletic or physical should receive. However, this is far from the truth. Not only does massage aid in alleviating stress and anxiety, it boosts the immune system, improves circulation, reduces muscle aches and pains and can even assist with those migraines that are associated with muscle tension, work and the kids!
Massage is gaining increasing recognition for its therapeutic benefits. Not only do women and men receive treatments, but children also greatly benefit from massage by reducing their stress levels, anxiety, aches and pains from growth, sporting activities and life in general. The most difficult decision is judging what style of massage is the best approach for you at the time.
Finding the right technique and the right therapist can be a case of trial and error. You’re likely to understand if you’ve ever had a massage that felt like you needed another massage for! The pressure can be too soft or too deep in the tissue. A key factor is communication. This is especially true for the first visit so the therapist can provide the best treatment they can. As a therapist, it is always gratifying knowing you’ve assisted your patient, but - at the same time - it is always nice knowing there are ways to improve your treatment as no two clients ever have the same preferences.
On top of technique, there are many styles of massage. When looking for the right technique there are some useful types to know.
Swedish is a common style and usually one of first learnt by a massage therapist. It incorporates long gliding strokes, known as effleurage, with friction and kneading movements to provide a relaxing and stress-relieving treatment.
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper muscles to relieve muscle congestion, tension points and usually involves a strong pressure, stretches and works with the breath.
Stretching techniques and the use of pressure points known as tsubo are used in shiatsu to balance the energy, known as chi, in the body.
Heated stones are used on the muscles to relieve tension, boost circulation and induce a feeling of deep relaxation in hot stone massage. The treatment delivers a deep massage effect without necessarily using a deep tissue pressure.
Reflexology works on the basis that tension or congestion in the body is mirrored with the corresponding point on the foot.
The massage treatment that is ideal to aid those with lymphoedema and fluid retention, and may assist sufferers of allergic sensitivities and menstrual concerns, is lymphatic drainage. It targets the lymphatic system in the body which is responsible for the body’s immunity.
If you are tired of asking your partner to work on that sore shoulder, or want to target that neck tension that is causing headaches or pain, why not consider massage as a first choice? As with an illness you go to the doctor, for muscle tension and stress why wouldn’t you go to massage; especially if it will allow you to give to others your best self?
