Massage sore back cairns – The Benefits of Massage

Massage sore back cairns – All of us need touch and we can all benefit from a massage.  The advantages available to specific systems of the body are noted below.

We can assist with relieving your sore back by using the following techniques – deep tissue massage, remedial massage, stretching exercise, rock tape to help stabilize your spine.  If indicated we may use Acupuncture or dry needling techniques (only if you are ok with needles and are ok with trying that therapy).  We may also use other techniques such as cupping or Gua sha.  These are chinese medicine techniques.  All our therapists are Australian and Australian trained and educated.

The Circulatory System

The general circulation of the blood is improved since massage accelerates the flow of blood through the system.  Oxygen and nutrients are brought to the cells and carbon dioxide and wastes are carried away from the cells, thus improving the functioning of the body.

Blood flow to the part of the body under treatment is increased.  This accelerates the healing process.

Massage reduces blood pressure and stress – related conditions such as rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) and disturbances in the rhythm of the heart (arrhythmia.)

The Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system, often referred to as the body’s waste disposal system is improved.  Massage accelerates the lymph flow helping to remove the wast products from the system.  This is particularly useful after exercise and after sustaining an injury which may be swollen, or is there is fluid retention (oedema), which needs to be dispersed by the lymphatic system.  If it is not moved on it can stick to the surrounding tissues and can result in stiffness.

The immune system is boosted, which protects against disease.

The Muscular System

Muscular Stiffness is reduced.  Lactic Acid and toxins that build up in over-exercised muscles can be eliminated thus reducing stiffness and fatigue.  Pain is reduced as knots and nodules are broken down.

Muscle Spasm and cramps are relaxed.

Muscular tone improves.

Massage of trigger points will allow muscle cells to start uptaking oxygen and nutrients and eliminating metabolic wastes again, the poper cell metabolism process.  Also, by pressing on trigger points and making it hurt a little bit more than its already hurting, it causes your body to release pain-masking chemicals such as endorphins, thereby breaking the pain cycle.

Something starts to hurt, so you tense the area up.  Then it hurts more, so the muscle tightens up more, perpetrating and escalating the cycle of pain.  Any intervention that helps treat trigger points and eliminate perpetuating factors can help break the cycle:  trigger point self treatments, stretching, heat and/or ice, massage, ultrasound, etc.

The Skin

The texture and tone of the skin improve.  Dead skin cells are removed – this process is known as desquamation – which encourages regeneration and keeps the pores open, improving skin respiration, thus enhancing texture and tone.

The sweat and sebaceous glands are stimulated and their function is improved.  Waste products are more rapidly eliminated and the sebum secreted by the sebaceous glands acts as a natural moisturiser preventing dryness and improving the elasticity of the skin.

The colour of the skin improves.  Massage increases the flow of blood to the area giving the skin a healthy and vibrant glow.
