acupressure

Acupressure

Read More...

Is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture.  It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through “meridians” in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in the meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow or with various devices.

Acupressure is the most effective method for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. Acupressure deals with all the aspects of a person as a whole: body, emotions, mind, and spirit as one, not as separate parts. It relaxes muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of the body.

Massage and passive excercices can usually be applied two or three days after an acute soft tissue injury. The purpose of post acute treatment is to speedup the healing process. Gentle superficial stroking massage can be appliec tostrains two or three days after the injury. Deeper stroking and friction techniques can be started after seven days as fibrous tissue has started to form. It is important to start the healing process early as to minimize a risk of forming chronic conditions like scar tissue and adhesions which will restrict movement.

The massage therapist may find excessive muscle tension and the client will be shown appropriate stretching exercises. This will reduce muscle tension and so prevent the development of overuse injuries. Massage does not directly improve muscle strength. A muscle may feel stronger to the sports person after treatment but this is due to improved efficiency through the effects of massage. Strengthening exercises, both stretching and strengthening exercises are a must for the sports person to cease ongoing repetitive injuries.

myofascial release

Myofascial Release

Read More...

Myofascial release (or MFR) is an alternative medicine therapy that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch flex in muscles.

Fascia is thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps around most structures within the human body, including muscle. Fascia supports and protects these structures. This soft tissue can become restricted due to overuse, trauma or inactivity, often resulting in muscle tension and corresponding diminished blood flow.

The use of myofascial release as a treatment is gentle and may be used in conjunction with trigger point therapy.

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissue. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. Sports rehabilitation has shown evidence of effectiveness with acute skeletal cell damage as well as swelling (oedema) around bone joints.

trigger point therapy

Trigger Point Therapy

Read More...

A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
