Features of Deep Tissue Massage
- Relax stiff muscles to restore pain free movement
- Reduce muscle tension and chronic pain
- Un-knot tight muscles and free up creaky joints
Deep Tissue massage is very effective in treating chronic problems such as stiff necks, strained or twisted shoulder muscles, and lower back stiffness or pain. It is also highly beneficial in reducing pain and discomfort in conditions such as whiplash and after a fall or an injury. Patients who suffer from deep seated muscle tension and pain like those who suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic muscle pain or fatigue, muscle cramps and tendonitis often find pain relief with deep tissue massage therapy.
The purpose of deep tissue massage is to elongate the muscle fiber and loosen that hard to budge tension that’s deep within the muscle. Athletes have long been the recipients of deep tissue massages to relieve muscle pain and promote healing of over used muscles, to increase mobility and keep the muscles loose.
Don’t eat a heavy meal before the massage. If it’s your first time booking a home massage, get ready at least 10 minutes early to rest and relax before starting your session.
Chinese Tui Na and Foot Reflexology
Tui Na & Foot Reflex
- Relaxes muscle spasm and relieves tension
- Increases the blood supply to muscles and joints
- Useful in weight loss
To those who’ve experienced both acupressure and Shiatsu, a Tui Na session may seem like a cross between the two. Tui Na’s advantage is the ability to focus on specific problems, especially chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and skeletal system. It’s especially effective for joint pain (such as arthritis), sciatica, muscle spasms, and pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. It also helps chronic conditions such as insomnia, constipation, headaches (including migraines), and the tension associated with stress.
Foot reflexology will also be included if you opt for Tui Na during your session. The treatment will then begin with some general relaxation techniques, followed by a precise thumb and finger walking technique aimed at applying pressure to every reflex area on the top and bottom of the foot. Reflexology is not ticklish, firm pressure is used. If a particular part of the body is out of balance, the corresponding reflex may feel tender or sore during the treatment. It is important that you let the reflexologist know so that steps may be taken to rectify this discomfort.
In ancient China, medical therapy was often classified as either “external” or “internal” treatment. Tui na was considered to be one of the external methods, thought to be especially suitable for use on the elderly population and on infants.
