Massage Therapy – Reduce Pain With Massage

Massage is essentially the gentle manipulation of the soft tissue of the body. There are many massage techniques available, and some techniques may be more appropriate than others. Massage Winchester is one of the authority sites on this topic. Massage techniques most commonly used by massage therapists are typically hand, fingertips, elbows, shoulders, forearms, feet or a device known as a massager. The main goal of massage therapy is usually for the relief of pain or body tension. If you have sore muscles and tendons, a deep tissue massage will release the tightness and help you achieve relaxation.

A Swedish massage targets and relaxes the superficial muscles and soft tissues of the face and neck while deep tissue massage works deep into the muscles to relieve tension and increase flexibility. This type of massage improves blood circulation, relieves stress and helps to reduce the effects of aging. If you suffer from chronic back pain, a deep tissue massage can relieve your chronic back pain by increasing the flexibility of tight muscles. It is important to seek a licensed therapist who has experience in this area to perform this massage because performing a deep tissue massage require both skill and expertise. If done incorrectly it could cause injury or permanent damage to your muscles and/or soft tissues.

Trigger point massage therapy involves the use of tiny electrical currents to ease muscle tension and increase range of motion. It is an advanced form of massage and should only be performed by professional massage therapists. The use of small electrical currents results in the sudden relaxing of large groups of muscles at once. Trigger point therapy was developed by Dr. Robert McKenzie, a former chiropractor and now a practicing doctor. While the technique has been used for years in the medical profession, it is not approved by FDA as a form of therapy for the reduction or elimination of pain or other conditions.
