If you have just started integrating massage therapy into your health regimen or if massage therapy is already an integral part of your personal health it is important to be mindful of the powerful effects that massage therapy has on the body.
The purpose of any massage modalities is to hone in on the specific muscles and muscle groups that are causing pain or discomfort, and use the appropriate strokes and techniques to release the muscles. During the process the muscles and joints are being trained on a muscular level to hold the body in a balanced, pain free position. It is very common for clients at our Denver massage clinic to come to us with concerns about a specific area of their body, and once they are on the table they learn that pain in one area of their body affects the entire system. Massage therapy effectively restores the body’s balanced posture because it considers each muscles contributions to the whole body function.
The skilled Denver massage therapists at Peace of Mind Massage are able to isolate specific muscle tension and correlate it back to the connectivity of the muscular system. Massage is useful for treating headaches and migraines by relieving pressure and releasing muscles of the head, neck and shoulders that are related to the pain. Massage can be used to increase range of motion and flexibility in areas with restricted movement. We are also able to provide massage that helps the body recover from injury. By increasing blood flow to the affected area as well as breaking up excessive scar tissue formation that could inhibit movement or cause pain.
Body work helps alleviate aches and pains by providing a passive workout for the body while focusing on muscles pain caused by inactivity or repetitive motion. To get the most benefit from massage therapy we recommend for the client to continuously train the muscles to hold balance posture. This can be done by stretching the muscles that are typically flexed or tightened, and strengthening the muscles that are extended or stretched during daily activity. Some practices that compliment massage therapy and which can be done throughout the day are yoga or meditation. We have referral relationships with yoga studios and meditation sanctuaries in Denver.
At Peace of Mind Massage in Denver, it is our philosophy that massage therapy provides a passive workout for your body and due to the intense nature of the treatment is it common for the muscles to be sore the day after receiving massage. This is because the muscles have been worked while they are relaxed which allows the therapist to stimulate the muscles on a deeper level than self-stretching or even a regular work out will allow. Although during the massage you may be very relaxed, it is helpful to remember that your muscles have been thoroughly worked and it’s recommended that you limit your physical activity for the remainder of the day. We suggest that physical activity after a massage be treated like the cool down part of your work out, paying special attention to areas that were focused on during the massage.
There are several other things that you can do to get the most benefits out of your massage in Denver! Taking an Epsom salt bath can replenish the body with help nutrients and the active ingredient; magnesium sulfate; helps to remove toxins from the body. If it’s too hot outside to take a full bath then just soak the areas that are of most concern. Applying ice or a cold pack for 2-5 minutes to areas with inflammation or soreness will help relieve pain. Remember to drink plenty of water before and after your massage and communicate with your Denver massage therapist about what you are feeling before, during and after the massage. This will help us create the best possible treatment for your specific needs. We are dedicated to helping you get the most benefits from massage therapy and your wellness program!
