Deep Tissue Massage Cairns – Our Deep tissue massage provides a highly therapeutic experience.  These treatments relieve stress and muscle tension by focusing on specific muscle groups, combined with specially blended massage oils.

This Massage targets your hip flexors/iliopsoas, ITB, upper traps muscles which are very common in causing us problems in daily life.

We may work on your masseter muscles, parietal muscles and SCM which are all key muscles that set up neck and head pains (we are highly trained therapists – Australian trained)

We will massage the rest of your major muscle groups with the strategy of identifying and fixing the muscles with trigger points that are commonly causing you pain and discomfort.

We identify which agonist and antagonist muscles are working or not working.  We seek to rectify these and help you feel the difference.

Rated by locals as one of the best massages in Cairns!

Cairns Massage would like to talk to you about Meditation (and the benefits it offers in terms on ongoing and recurrent upper neck and shoulder pain).

Introduction to meditation

Various techniques can be used to induce “relaxed awareness”, the basic meditative state of mind.  All involve focusing the mind and ignoring distractions.  The practice is widely recommended for stress-related conditions.  People who meditate claim they have greater clarity of thought, calmness and energy, and research suggests that it can help improve conditions including anxiety, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome and pms.

History of Meditation

Meditation is a part of all major religions, practised as prayer and contemplation in Christianity, Judaism etc, and as a way of exploring consciousness and attaining bliss in Buddhism and Hinduism.  The idian Yogi Maharashi Mahesh introduced transcendental meditation (TM) to the West in the 1960s, prompting scientific research in the US.  From this, Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard University developed the concept of the ‘relaxed response’, encouraging the practice of a non-religious style of meditation.

Main Principles

By triggering the relaxation response, meditation reverses the physiological effects of stress, reducing heart-rate and slowing metabolism.  Brainwaves change to a distinctive alpha pattern that indicates the mind and body resting deeply, although still mentally alert.  Regular meditators deal more effectively with stress and appear to have better health.

Meditation Techniques

Be prepared to try several methods until you find one that is right for you.  Mantra Meditation a word or phrase is continually chanted or repeated in your head.  The word may be an expression of your personal beliefs, or simply one that holds some positive meaning for you.

Breath awareness: you focus on your breathing and count ‘one’ or think of a word that induces a sense of peace, each time you exhale.

Vipassana (Mindfullness) you enter a state of diffuse openness, in which you are fully conscious of, but detached from your immediate experience and thoughts.

Object meditation; you focus with eyes open on an object, dwelling on its shape, weight and texture.

Main Uses

It can reduce Stress and Anxiety

It can reduce High blood pressure

It can relieve headaches

it can decrease pain, fatigue, depression and insomnia.

It can reduce addictions

It can boost the immune system and can also be used for personal development.

Biochemical effects of doing regular meditation

Triggers healing processes.  Causes changes in the brain and tissue chemistry by inducing the relaxation response.

Structural Effects

Induces immediate and long-term reduction in tension of voluntary (eg in back and neck) and involuntary muscles (eg in gut or blood vessels).

Psycho-social effects

Brings about valuable changes in perceptions, attitudes and mood,  and promotes active self-care, improves tolerance of pain and ability to cope with a health problem.

It is possible to learn to meditate from books, tapes or videos, but consulting a teacher or joining a group is advisable.

Begin with 5-10 minutes and build up to 15-20 minutes once or preferably twice a day.   To keep track of time, place a clock nearby, eventually you will no need it.

Cairns Massage and Acupuncture recommends you try Meditation as well as having regular massages as part of a healthy and natural regime to take care of your body and mind.  Please phone us on 0408 054 538 or email us.
