Massage is an ancient form of healing that has been used for thousands of years as relaxation, to provide comfort and to promote overall well-being.
In many cultures, massage is something that is part of daily life. In our western culture, the usefulness of massage is fortunately increasingly recognized and the interest in massage is increasing. Touching provides relaxation and also works against stress. Chronic pain can be reduced by massaging in the right places. There are hundreds of points on the body that are each connected to the organs, muscles and parts of the nervous system. By influencing those points, by applying pressure and by massaging, the connected parts of the body will function better.
Because we experience more and more stimuli every day, a lot of tension (stress) can be built up in the body. We often do not even notice that, because we have come to regard it as ‘normal’. Often these places are only felt when they are touched. Massage makes you more aware of your body and those stress points. In addition, the ability to relax (actively) increases.
Trigger point massage
Trigger point massage is a form of massage where points in the muscles are treated that cause pain, stiffness, numbness or loss of strength in muscles.
A trigger point is a local cramp in a muscle that also keeps part of the muscle at rest. It feels like a paved spot and gives pain when you press on it. What is special about trigger points is that they often divert the pain to other places in the body. For example, the cause of the pain is often not at the point where the pain is felt! They arise, for example, due to incorrect use of the muscle due to overloading or due to insufficient load (after a long time in plaster), due to poor nutrition, or due to a fall or accident, sometimes even from a long time ago.
Examples of complaints where trigger points play a role are: back complaints after digging the garden, shoulder and arm complaints after many repetitive movements in the same position during computer work, and facial complaints and neck complaints with a whiplash.
Finding a trusted therapist is really difficult, so here are a few tips to getting the perfect outcall massage Singapore (and massage therapist) to fit your needs. Because choosing the right technique and therapist for you often go hand in hand pun totally intended.
My treatment is aimed at detecting and deactivating the trigger points by means of short deep strokes in the lengthwise direction of the muscle, so that the affected muscles can relax and the symptoms decrease. In addition, I will look with you for the possible causes of the complaint. Once it is known which trigger points cause your symptoms, you also learn to treat these yourself. You will of course be properly instructed in this. This is because the therapy is most effective if the points are massaged briefly a few times a day. Read more about trigger points here.
With a sports massage the emphasis is on the condition of the muscles. The massage can be given before a training or competition, with extra attention to the muscle groups that are especially loaded for that particular sport. This preventive massage ensures good blood circulation and prepares the muscles for the upcoming performance.
After a sporting or other heavy effort, moisture and waste accumulate in the muscles. A sports massage then ensures better drainage and less muscle pain, so that the muscles can function well again quickly and the risk of injuries is reduced. It is a solid massage that is not only appreciated by athletes. This massage can be combined well with a relaxation massage.
For a relaxation massage I use different techniques from the classical massage, rebalancing, shiatsu and bodywork. A stress and tension massage with a calming and soothing effect for body and mind, aimed at relaxing the muscles. Undoubtedly, it helps promoting blood flow and improving metabolism. A relaxation massage works softer and pays more attention to breathing and awareness of the body.
With the help of a neutral or wonderfully scented oil, silence or just fitting music in the background I try to use my hands to tune in to what you need to relax. This massage can be combined well with a sports massage or trigger point massage (when the trigger points have been mapped).
A chair massage is a pressure point massage of shoulders, back, arms, hands and head. You sit in an
Ergonomically shaped chair, after which you are massaged through the clothing for fifteen to twenty minutes.
While many places call a service performed on tantric massage , it is not just limited to people in romantic relationships. Sure, it’s a great “date-night” experience, but it can also be a perfect “girls night out” activity or just a great way to relax with a friend after a long week at work
No oil is used:
The chair massage is based on an age-old Japanese technique. It has a preventive and relaxing effect on stress-related complaints in particular. With the help of the masseur’s thumbs, fingers and elbows, a long series of points is treated.
The flow of blood and lymph is promoted, so that you get up energetically from the chair. With a regular chair massage you will become more aware of your posture and strain on your body.
