Relieve Pain, Increase Blood Flow and Healing with Massage.
If the stressors of everyday life are too much and relief seems a huge stretch, it might be time to carve out some space in your busy schedule and invest in a deep tissue massage. In addition to the health benefits and calm state of mind that you achieve during a yoga class at Capital Rehab of Crofton in Crofton, deep tissue massage can help relieve muscle strain. Although any type of massage is sure to prove therapeutic, the deep tissue variety is exceptional in its ability to offer increased focus, while minimizing the anxiety currently plaguing your on-the-go lifestyle.
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue refers to a type of massage in which your massage therapist focuses on sites of chronic muscle tension resulting from a stressful lifestyle. The ultimate goal is for the massage therapist to relax and stretch your tense muscles, using intense pressure to physically break down the bands of rigid tissue responsible for continued pain. The same general techniques seen in standard massage are still applied, but with a slower pace and an increased focus on the most tension-filled areas of the body. Your Crofton massage professional will focus on the parts of your body where you report feeling the most discomfort, changing the pressure if needed.
Benefits of the Deep Tissue Approach
The most immediate benefit of deep tissue massage is the elimination of rigid tissue from muscles and ligaments. When allowed to build up over time, this tissue can lead to chronic pain in the neck, shoulders and lower back. This pain is problematic in and of itself, but it also is capable of manifesting itself negatively in every other area of the sufferer's life. If you’re experiencing chronic muscle pain, you may also notice decreased mobility, difficulty in reaching full range of motion in a formerly accessible stretch routine, and the inability to maintain mental focus. Most alarmingly, you may also see an increase in the severity of such conditions as carpal tunnel and fibromyalgia.
The proactive nature of deep tissue massage in Crofton allows participants to prevent a wide array of problems before they become unbearable. Additionally, the increased focus on points of pain makes deep tissue massages ideal for anyone recovering from sports injuries. This reality may explain why dozens of prominent athletes make a point of investing in regular deep tissue massages.
Between its direct targeting of chronically painful areas and its overarching therapeutic approach, Capitol Rehab of Crofton recommends that you consider deep tissue massage and its plethora of clear benefits. Whether you're dedicated to sports, recovering from an injury or struggling with everyday stressors, you'll be amazed at how quickly the deep tissue approach can transform your life after just a single massage. Making massage a part of your life can provide ongoing health benefits and stress relief, especially when combined with another stress-relieving activity like yoga.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people. Participating in sports is hard on the body and can often lead to both short and long term injuries. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs sports careers by helping to prevent injury, reduce pain and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding in the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy
MAT can help with head pain, neck cricks, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel, scoliosis, lumbago, sciatica, and visceral problems, among other body issues. By receiving MAT, you increase your flexibility, improve posture, and decrease pain throughout your body. The reason why MAT works better than other forms of therapy, is because it breaks the pain cycles and spasms by combining muscle balancing routines with unique joint capsule maneuvers.
This service is provided with a prescription from your medical practitioner or your chiropractor, for rehabilitation of the muscles injured. This therapy is the manipulation of soft tissue of the body with the hand, foot, arm or elbow. It can also be used for muscle aches and pain. Sliding cupping, in particular, leaves the muscles of the back relaxed and opens up movement and motility. Most people find cupping the be a wonderfully relaxing, comfortable, and effective treatment. Like massage, cupping can also be used to relieve stress, tension, and lower blood pressure.
Hot Stone Therapy Combo
Hot Stone Therapy is s a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The experience is very relaxing, nurturing and rejuvenating. The combo is with deep work on focused areas (back and neck).
NAT Certified Frozen Shoulder
Dealing specifically with shoulder issues, this technique is the NAT treatment "hands-on". It involves using a sequenced series of pressure points and stretching maneuvers. Some of it can be painful while other parts are soothing. This is for the reason-the tissues of the body have many types of receptors embedded within them. Some respond to deep touch, others to superficial touch, some to pain, others to hot and cold. All of our human experience of our environment is mediated through our tissues' sensory receptors
