Remedial Massage Cairns – phone 0408 054 538.

Remedial Massage is a massage designed to fix an injury or remove pain that you are suffering from.

Massage is popular with injured people as it can improve muscle tone, restore mobility, and ensure the elimination of waste products after the initial injury causing activity. With remedial massage, strains and sprains heal more rapidly .

Remedial Massage will increase the blood circulation to alleviate the pain.  Remedial massage will also deactivate trigger points causing the pain.

Massage can also stimulate and relax the body and the mind. The skin, blood and lymphatic systems are stimulated, which boosts circulation, aids cellular renewal and removes toxic wastes. As tense muscles relax, stiff joints loosen and nerves are soothed, an all over feeling of relaxation and well-being comes about.

Muscles

Massage increases the blood circulation – With the increase in blood flow, the blood’s vital nutrients circulate more efficiently.

Massage and Exercise

Professional sports people value massage very highly, not least because it works on several levels. Used before exercise it can prepare the body for the increase in activit not only by warming and loosening the muscles and joints (increasing their flexibility and helping to prevent cramps and injuries), but also by stimulating the system, both physically and mentally. This is the key to improved performance.

After an exercise session, massage speeds up the elimination of waste products (in particular lactic acid) by stimulating the lymphatic system. The accumulation of these wast products during exercise is the cause of much of the stiffness and pain experienced afterwards.

Strains and Sprains

A burning sensation under the skin is likely to indicate that muscles, fibres or ligaments have been strained – stretched beyond their natural limits. This is often the result of exercising without an adequate warmup routine or overexertion.

A routine of pre-exercise massage and limbering will help to prevent strains. Gently massaging the affected area will also help to speed recovery.

Sprains are more serious and are cause by violent wrenching of a joint, most commonly the ankle, wrist or knee.

The surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons may also be damaged and the affected area may be extremely painful and swollen. Apply an ice pack or cold compress for 15-20 minutes to reduce swelling. When it is removed we can start to massage the area gently, taking care not to work directly on the swelling. Rest the ankle as much as possible and use a support bandage.

Cramp

You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to suffer from cramp. On the contrary, it is usually underused or ill prepared muscles which go into cramp. It doesn’t even take movement to set it off; the searing pain of cramp can occur in the middle of the night, when the reduced circulation has lead to muscles to contract. Frequent cramps may indicate generally poor circulation or a deficiency of calcium or salt.

Circulation and lymphatic systems

By dilating the blood vessels, massage increases the blood circulation. A good circulatory system means that an efficient supply of the bloods constituents, including oxygen and nutrients, reaches the billions of individual cells. This is vital for the healthy functioning of the whole body, from the muscles to internal organs such as the kidneys and liver.

At the same time the increase in blood circulation helps accelerate the lymphatic system, which absorbs and eliminates waste substances. Unlike the blood circulation, which has the heart to pump it around, the lymphatic system has no pump of it’s own and is dependent on muscular action for it’s efficiency. Massage is an important means of speeding up the flow of lymph, encouraging a more effective filtering and elimination of waste throughout the body. An efficient lymphatic system provides the body with a strong immune system to fight against infections and disease.

Effects of massage

Massage can stimulate and relax the body and the mind. The skin, blood and lymphatic systems are stimulated, which boosts circulation, aids cellular renewal and removes toxic wastes. As tense muscles relax, stiff joints loosen and nerves are soothed, an all over feeling of relaxation and well-being comes about.

The nervous system

The nervous system is a highly complex network which relays messages from the brain to the rest of the body. The part of the nervous system which regulates many physiological functions leaves the brain at the base of the skill and runs down the spinal cord, protected by the spines bony vertebrae.

Millions of nerve endings run through the body, controlling much of the way it functions, the nerve endings can be stimulated or soothed.

The skin

With massage comes an increase in blood circulation. This helps the exfoliation of superficial dead skin cells, tones the skin and encourages its renewal process.

Massage helps maintain the collagen fibres, which give skin it’s elasticity and strength. And keeps wrinkles at bay.

The activity of the sweat and sebaceous glands, lubricate and moisturize skin, is regulated.

Digestion

Massage mobilizes the digestive system so that the processes of assimilation and elimination are improved, helping problems like constipation and flatulence. The digestive system is quick to respond to stress, and the reduction in anxiety and tension which comes with regular massage has a regulating effect on the digestion.
