Massage For Self-care
The benefits of self-care to avoid the onset of muscular discomfort.
Most of us will have experienced a painful muscular problem at some point in our lives. The pain is debilitating and even everyday tasks, like putting on a pair of socks, can be difficult to do. Perhaps you had treatment of some kind to resolve the problem at the time, but what can you do to prevent the return of your initial problem?
A regular maintenance massage treatment programme can be your best defence against the return of your condition. An experienced massage therapist can help you to ensure that your muscles remain relaxed and healthy by alleviating the stress and tension that builds up in body’s soft tissues. In the same way as a regular service of your car helps to prevent those complicated and expensive major breakdowns, a massage every 6-8 weeks can prevent acute episodes of pain and a return to “square one”.
When you have massage for an injury, your therapist will have built up a clear understanding of your individual problem areas and “hot spots” during your initial course of treatments. By continuing to monitor these areas during follow up maintenance treatments, your therapist will be able to stop tension from building back up and therefore prevent the return of your initial problem. In addition, your therapist will combine a blend of techniques, knowledge and on-going advice to help bring about optimum muscle health and improve your overall sense of well-being.
