In this article I want to tell you about the benefits of massage, and about my personal experience in this area.
Massage – this is the physical effect exerted on the body of a person, by means of special massage techniques.
Myself, like many of you, dear readers, for a long time were skeptical in regards to massage. But one day, during the preparation for the competition, I had a huge muscle spasm on my back. I even thought that I had a heart attack. Fortunately, we had a masseur in our sports club. He examined me and explained that it was a spasmodic rhomboid muscle of the back. I need to do several massages to get rid of the pain and to eliminate the spasm. And what was my surprise when the masseur made me feel better!
I’ll start with a simple explanation. Massage, like stretching or training, is a mechanical effect on your tissues, so this is always an effect. As in all cases, the effect depends on the strength and correctness of performing the techniques of the massage therapist. So do not be afraid, if you came to the professional, the massage will be 100% effective. The only thing is that you can not always feel it immediately, but after several sessions, although, most often, even after the first session.
The positive effects of the massage:
1. Improves oxygen and blood circulation in tissues.
2. Lymphatic drainage is carried out.
3. Muscles, ligaments, and fasciae return elasticity and ability to work.
4. The tension from the entire body and nervous system is eliminated.
5. The metabolism is stabilized.
These are just a few factors of the massage impact on the human body. In fact, there are ten times more of them. I personally tried several types of massage, and was pleased. If you have hard work, or just an active person, a professional sportsman, do massage to relieve tension, eliminate spasms, and trigger points. Please consult with professional about what kind of massage you need. Do not be afraid of massages, it is much more useful, and much safer than swallowing anesthetic, or other medications.
