The Benefits of Massage
Massage has been used by many cultures for thousands of years to improve their health and well being. It has also been used with the aid of essential oils to treat numerous disorders and ills.
The following are some of the major benefits people have experienced from having a massage:
Before having a massage be sure to advise your therapist of any health conditions or disorders that you may have. These may include things like heart or blood pressure problems, pregnancy, contagious or infectious diseases, cancer and diabetes, etc. This may mean that your doctor will need to give approval beforehand to ensure that massage will not endanger your health.
Relaxation (Swedish) Massage
A gentle therapeutic massage consisting of continuous effleurage strokes with kneading and stretching of tight muscles that aims at reducing stress levels, stretches and tones muscles, relaxing the body and assisting the body to maintain homeostasis. This technique is the basis of many other styles of massage therapies. Involves the use of oils and takes about one hour for a full body massage.
Sports (Therapeutic) Massage
This is generally a massage technique that assists to condition athletes before and after physical activity, and to help loosen and stretch muscles. It involves the use of deep effleurage and petrissage to the muscles which can result in the improved performance by the athlete. Regular sports massage can help speed up recovery, lower stress levels, promote greater endurance and flexibility, assists in injury prevention and enhances body awareness. Oil is sometimes used.
Deep Tissue Massage
