How Massage Therapy Can Help You With Muscle Soreness?
Have you ever experienced swollen body parts or congestion anywhere due to a physical injury or complications after surgery? Well, if you do, then you must know how sore and irritating it can be. Moving around with inflammation, soreness, or pain in body tissues is a strenuous way of life.
Taking care of these conditions is highly important, and one such way to get rid of soreness, clogs, and inflammation is healing massages. While it’s possible to do them on your own, it’s not medically prescribed. These are certified physical or massage therapists that can help you get rid of such physiological medical conditions.
Massage is one of the traditional healing practices used in the Indians, Chinese, Egyptians, and ancient Greek cultures. Its therapeutic properties of healing muscles and soft tissues improve the overall well-being of a person.
There are different kinds of massages that are developed to target specific areas of concern and problems. Below is the list of most commonly used massage therapies:
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage
If you’ve ever had lymph-related surgery, your doctor might have prescribed a lymphatic drainage massage in San Diego.
The lymphatic system in your body eliminates body waste. A healthy working lymphatic system relies on the natural smooth movement of muscle tissue to get this done. But injuries and clog formation in the lymphatic system causes a medical condition called lymphedema.
In MLD massage, we use gentle pressure to move waste clogged fluids away from the affected area.
When doing a lymphatic massage, it’s important to ensure that the massage is done on more than just the afflicted area, i.e., the entire lymphatic system, excluding the head, right side of the chest, drains around the left shoulder, and right arm. So, for a massage to function properly, we need to cover more or less the entire body.
Reiki Chakra Healing
Reiki chakra healing was originated in Japan. Its inventor Dr Usui helped it gain recognition by teaching it to his students. In this practice, the therapists softly press their hands on your body to transmit warmth and energy, unlike most alternative healing methods.
Reiki is a non-invasive and gentle method that doesn’t leave you feeling tired the day after the massage. People who have benefited from it reported feeling slight tingling and heat transmission coming from the practitioner’s hands, which culminates in well-being and relaxation of the affected area of the body.
Gua Sha Healing
Gua sha healing is another alternative therapy that involves physically scraping your body’s skin to improve blood circulation. This ancient Chinese healing therapy is a unique approach toward chronic pain.
In this technique, the practitioner scrapes the skin with both long and short strokes to instigate microcirculation in the soft tissues, which helps in increasing the blood flow. Before scraping the skin in the downward motion using a smooth-edged instrument called a Gua Sha massage tool, the practitioner applies oil to make the skin soft and aid circulation.
It’s performed on a person’s neck, arms, back, buttocks, and legs. A gentle version of it is used on the face as well. Generally, the massage practitioner applies light pressure and slowly increases the pressure intensity to determine how much you can bear.
