If you suffer from motion issues, chronic pain or injury, then sports massage is for you.
Although developed primarily for athletes, sports massage has become popular for those who wish to heal old injuries to muscles and tendons as well as those who want to prevent these injuries from occurring.
Sports massage is great for treating shin splints, sprains, tennis elbow, strain and various other sports injuries.
Trigger Point Release
Trigger Point Release is used to alleviate pain at the spot (known as local pain), and also referred pain (pain felt elsewhere in the body away from the sore spot). A trigger point in the body is actually a pea-sized knot deep in the muscle.
Trigger points are hard to diagnose because they don't show up on x-rays and have a broad range of symptoms. These symptoms include:
Treating trigger points can be uncomfortable, but with the right therapist you can attain long-term pain relief, more flexibility and improved blood and oxygen circulation throughout the body.
Myofascial Release often starts with the therapist doing a light massage to gauge points of tension in the body. The therapist will then return to work on tense points, doing stretches and applying light strokes in the direction of the muscle fibres.
The purpose of this is to restore full movement to the muscle, and reduce pain in conditions such as arthritis, headaches, whiplash, acute back pain, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain syndromes.
It is important to have optimum muscle movement, because lymph nodes require muscle movement to transport fluids around the body.
Lymph nodes help to fight infections, colds and excess fluids so it is vital to keep the muscles supporting the nodes in peak condition.
Lymphatic drainage is performed using a gentle massage to encourage the lymph nodes to drain unwanted fluids. It is a slow, gentle massage used to rid the body of toxins and waste.
