Massage refers to working the body using vibration, tension or pressure- moving, still, methodical or random. It can be done manually; i.e with hands, fingers, knees, elbows, forearms, knuckles or feet or with certain massage devices. It improves relaxation in the muscles and joints, releases tension build-up in various pressure points and enhances the overall functioning of all body systems. We live in Winnipeg, MB so we have a great number of massage therapists.
Massage therapy basically uses massage as a therapeutic solution for all the niggles your body tends to accumulate- which gradually develop into more serious ailments. It is the application of stimulating pressure to specific parts of the anatomy to create circulation and return your body to a position of optimal functionality. This takes many forms, and can be specific to the particular needs of the patient, such as:
-rehabilitation after injury
-weak immune system
-anxiety and stress
-shallow and inhibited breathing
-muscle tension and pain
-high blood pressure
Massage therapy in Winnipeg, almost unbelievably, provides relief in people suffering from all these and many more. This healing ability depends heavily upon the ability of massage to free up nerve endings that have gotten entangled, so to speak, for one reason or another (poor diet, lack of exercise, anxiety, inadequate relaxation, insufficient rest, etc). With the nervous system freed up, all the enzymes and hormones that are necessary to return your body to its proper state begin to move to their designated sites, rapidly causing significant improvements in overall health and immunity.
Another principle that massage employs is that of mental relaxation. Studies have proven that am person’s mental activity can sometimes act as a major hindrance to their recovery and/or wellness. Since the brain automatically controls literally every unconscious process in the body, keeping it bogged down with innumerable thoughts (especially negative or depressing ones) cripples it and renders it helpless to heal the body. The Winnipeg massage therapy clinics I go to are so relaxing that it shuts down the mental noise in the background of your mind (if you let it) and enables these unconscious processes to proceed without interference.
Keeping in mind that the effects of a massage last long after the session is over, this will do good to your overall health in the long run. And just in case you are curious as to which massage you should get yourself, here is a list of the most well-known (and invariably effective) massages:
