Sports Therapy Massage
Despite its name, sports massage is not only for those who take regular exercise. All of us are likely to suffer from muscular tension or discomfort at some point in our lives. Whether it is the result of sitting hunched over a computer, lifting heavy items, repetitive occupational activities, postural problems or even a trip or fall, sports massage is very effective at reducing muscular pain and dysfunction. For regular athletes, sports massage can also provide a vital part of your training support. It can help to decrease your recovery time between training sessions or from an injury.
Musculoskeletal Acupuncture with Massage
Acupuncture technique for musculoskeletal injuries has grown in popularity and is now a quite a common therapy treatment. Musculoskeletal acupuncture was based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. According to these, the workings of the human body are controlled by a vital force or energy called “Qi”, which circulates between the organs along channels called meridians. Qi energy must flow in the correct strength and quality through each of these meridians and organs for health to be maintained. When the energy is blocked (injury) one or more fine (one-use) sterile needles are inserted into the injured, taut or overactive bundles of muscle (‘knots’). This helps restore the body energy, reduce pain, relax muscles and expedite recovery time, which can make life more enjoyable for those suffering from musculoskeletal injuries. Western science explained that the body is comprised of multiple transmission systems that send pain and inflammation signals to the brain and other areas of the body through the spinal cord. Acupuncture appears to have the ability to modulate the nervous system’s control. It has the ability to decrease pain, create an anti-inflammatory state in the body, and increase blood flow to injured areas to help stimulate the healing process. These effects have influence both locally at the injury site and systemically throughout the entire body.
