Athletes often use massage as a method to help prevent sports-related injuries. Cancer patients have reported massage therapy as a critical aspect of their treatment plan stating that massage makes chemotherapy a more gentle process. Massage has also been known to benefit children on the Autistic Spectrum as well as those with ADHD, and is believed to regulate blood sugar levels in children with diabetes and help premature babies gain weight. Massage therapy can also help prevent conditions such as arthritis, back pain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety and sports injury.
Managing stress usually includes a series of different steps. Identifying stressors and learning to take control, proper nutrition, regular exercise and regular sleep help. Relaxation techniques are the most notable stress relievers. Some methods focus on inner relaxation, such as yoga to help relax the mind and soul so that the body relaxes. Others concentrate on outer relaxation like massage to help ease the mind and soul into a calm state.
Swedish massage increases oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from muscles. Swedish massage includes a variety of methods with the brisk tapping of the percussion technique being the most noteworthy.
The benefit of the handheld massager is that it allows the user to target specific muscle groups like the shoulders and calves. The percussion massager provides deep tissue massage, and one can add heat for a deeper massage. Extendable handles help reach certain areas in the back.
To make the most out of using electric therapy massagers, stretch before and after the treatment and drink water. Add other self-massage techniques to the massage such as using hands in kneading movements and gliding strokes. When massaging the back or shoulders, the ideal position to be in is on the straight back that utilizes gravity for added pressure. Sit straight, and before the massage, look as far down as possible for 30 seconds to replenish fluids to the bones.
