One day I woke up and could not get out of my bed. The back pains and the lack of willingness to do anything ended up taking care of me, that’s when I began to think about the possibility of starting to practice massages.
And to my surprise when I began to know this world I realized that there were several types of massage, much more than I could imagine.
We all know that massage therapy has become increasingly adept because of its many benefits, how about knowing more about its variations?
Today we are going to talk about the technique I most recently met.
Hot stone massage is a variation of traditional massage therapy. Also called geothermal therapy, which is characterized by being a massage technique created thousands of years ago that has been heavily sought after in spas and therapy places, being used mainly for health care, wellness and beauty. The hot stone massage massage is also usually combined with a contrasting mode of cold stones.
How does it work?
The caregiver usually begins by applying cream or oil on the patient’s body allowing the stones to glide smoothly over his body muscles. After the hot stones have relaxed your muscles, the massage therapist must remove them and then, using your own hands, will massage directly on your skin.
A hot stone massage takes an average of 60 to 90 minutes.
Since the last century, primitive peoples have been looking for ways to heal illness and pain, even without the ease we have nowadays, they have achieved results through nature’s own resources.
According to historical records, the Indians developed windsurfing techniques using animal horns. The Chinese developed this technique using bamboos and later, the Europeans developed the same technique using glass cups.
Although it is an age-old technique, only in the year 2016 did the fire cups come to the fore when the swimmer Phelps appeared in public with the marks that are characteristic of the use of the suction cups and generated a certain curiosity and estrangement from all over the world.
Imagine the shock of society!
Despite being considered a practice still little known by a good part of the population, the technique still unfortunately suffers from prejudice because many believe that this practice hurts and / or leaves several bruises in the body, so it is important to emphasize that the windsurfing is contraindicated for those who have problems but may be indicated for people who have other health problems such as: bronchitis, digestion problems, stress and other problems related to circulatory problems.
But what are the real benefits of this technique?
• Detoxification of the organism
• Sleeping Treatment
• Treatments for muscle pain
• Abdominal pain
• Digestive problems
• Arterial hypertension
According to W.H.O (World Health Organization), about 20% (twenty percent) of the world population is treated with holistic therapies today.
Whether it is the relief of stress, tension or pain, Lymphatic Drainage has been increasingly sought after, but do you know what is the secret behind this method that has attracted more and more attention from lovers of massage therapy?
Lymphatic drainage is a technique of manual stimulation consisting of maneuvers with smooth, rhythmic and slow movements, using intermittent pressures in certain areas of the human body, which are already predefined, for physiologically facilitating the effectiveness of the technique through a qualified professional.
The purpose of drainage is to activate circulations and metabolism by increasing the volume of lymph which is a transparent fluid produced by the human body which is responsible for eliminating the impurities that the cells produce.
It is important to remember that the professional responsible for the application must comply with biosafety standards, using appropriate and individual protective equipment such as gloves, goggles, or any other items that are necessary for the practice, thus avoiding the contamination of a patient to the other.
And have you ever allowed yourself a relaxing massage, or are you part of the population that is afraid to allow yourself?
Let’s talk about Shiatsu the practice that has been helping people all over the world.
Do you consider yourself a person that allows you to participate in new experiences, never tried before? The Shiatsu changes lives and provides health and well-being, but let’s talk about what it is about?
Originating in the traditional oriental medicine, it was a practice considered preventive by the doctors of the time, since one of its intentions was to keep the population healthy through the balance that the method provided.
This technique stands out from the others because it does not use any instrument, that is, the applicator uses only the thumb and palm pressure to massage the individual, unlike other practices like acupuncture that is done with needles.
Its main objective is to unlock the energetic flow of the patient’s body, aiming at correcting the internal malfunction, relieving the tensions of the body and thus promoting health, well-being and balance.
