Massage therapy is a widely practiced medical therapeutic technique. It can be traced as far back as the 6th century BC, with the discovery of Greek doctor Arsenius (aurus). This was the first ever recorded use of massaging as a medical treatment. Today, it is used by therapists to reduce pain, improve range of motion, increase range of movement, and decrease inflammation. Massage therapy is used for a variety of purposes, such as relieving pain, loosening tight muscle tissues, increasing range of motion, treating inflammation, reducing stiffness, improving muscle tone, and so on. Massage has also been shown to effectively "free up" natural killer cells in the body, thus preventing the formation of tumors. Myofascial Release is an alternative medical therapy treatment claimed to be extremely beneficial for the treatment of chronic pain and skeletal muscle immobility caused by myofascial pain syndrome, by relaxing tight contracted muscles, improving blood and lymph flow, and increasing the trigger point stimulation in injured muscles. Trigger Point Therapy is a type of massage that targets specific regions of the body, usually the hands, feet, or neck, and that offers direct pressure to specific muscle groups to ease pain. In my experience, Trigger Point therapy works well for acute and chronic low back pain, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, and whiplash. Triggers are areas of tightness within the muscle tissue or tendons, such as bursa lines, fascia latae, or underlying fascia. Manual pressure is applied to the trigger points to relax the tissue. A massage therapist can apply pressure parallel to the tender area or at an angle away from it. Massage chairs have incorporated myofascial release treatment in their routines. This technology enables a massage therapist to target the muscles underlying knots and spasms, releasing tension and restoring range of motion by stretching the soft tissue away from the point of pain. When done properly, this technique can restore range of motion, mobility, flexibility, and balance to an injured body part. Many athletes use massage therapy to rehabilitate injured joints, tendons, and ligaments after a severe physical harm. Other advantages include reducing swelling and stiffness, reducing pain, and improving the ability to deal with stress and to reduce injury. A soft foam roller is a simple device that delivers massage therapy with a gentle rhythm. The rollers slide across the surface of the muscles and link to the handheld massager. To present deep massage, the rollers must be placed over and under the knots and tight muscles. Once the rhythm was established, the roller will provide a controlled pressure for the required amount of time. The foam roller is a mobile device which may be used on the move. It is small enough to fit in a briefcase or handbag. It offers immediate relief to many sore muscles and it may offer chronic myofascial release. By way of instance, if you have chronic back pain, you may use the rollers during your daily activities. For this exact same pain relief, you can choose the device to work or run outside. Myofascial Release is a phrase which is used to refer to the release of adhesion, or the binding of tight, inflexible adhesions to muscles or tissues. Adhesions form in reaction to direct compression, such as in a muscle spasm. To release a tight adhesion, the area has to be stretched, pulled back, lifted, rotated, flexed, or inverted. This type of"stress" releases chronic pain and prevents additional adhesions from forming. Myofascial Release can offer short-term pain relief and can help prevent further pain or harm by strengthening the area and increasing range-of-motion. It's not uncommon to experience inflammation, pain, or stiffness immediately after a massage session. This is commonly known as"dry bumpy skin", a condition that typically responds well to massage therapy. A dry bumpy skin response is an indication of excessive muscle contractions that have caused temporary edema. To prevent dry skin or to control it, do not massage while in the state of severe pain. A gentle pressure on the tender areas of your body can easily fix any symptoms associated with this condition.
