Massage tools are great for massages. The massages you give and receive will be more efficient if you use massage balls or other accessories. These affordable accessories are easily found in specialized stores or online. Try several different kinds to see what works best for you.

Massage therapy is a great way to find relief from stress and pain. Chronic back pain calls for regular massages to help you deal with the pain and keep healing. Find a friend or relative who can give you a massage or go to a professional.

Try to get a good massage a couple times per week. Most individuals feel that regular massages help improve mood as well as their overall health. This is probably because a good massage releases toxins from your muscles and relaxes you. If you are able to, a massage twice is a week is beneficial to your health.

Do not underestimate massaging. Receiving a massage is a very efficient way to get rid of pain, get over your stress and get the energy you need for your daily activities. A professional can engage in techniques that will keep you feeling at your best.

The pressure used during massage is essentil for many different goals. If the person you are massaging has many knots, you’ll want to pressure the area and move slowly until the tension is released. Simply applying pressure to these areas, without letting up, should help the body relax. This is a key principle with deeper tissue massages.

Training to become a massage therapist takes time. Give massages to people you know and ask them for feedback. After you have practiced for a while, you can try it with your partner.

The slower the movement in a massage the greater the soothing impact. As you work on the back, try to use more than just one finger so that you don’t start to feel discomfort yourself. Use your weight to your advantage to avoid tiring out.

Deep tissue massages can heal old and new injuries. This method massages against the muscle and is slow. This ensures the muscles loosen and get enough blood.

Never be afraid of speaking up during a massage. Alert her to any specific area you would like to focus on. For instance, you might need to tell the masseuse to apply more pressure.

Surprisingly enough, a massage exists that should be done by everyone after a meal is eaten. It involves putting both of your palms on the abdomen and moving them in a circular motion. This helps you with proper digestion.

When providing a massage to someone, read the body contours with your hands. Use both your palms and fingers when giving your massage. For bony areas, apply light pressure with your palm to relieve pain. If the areas are curvy, your fingers are great tools to massage out any kinks.

Many people find that massage therapy can ease their aches and pains enough to eliminate the need for some pain meds. Massage has been shown to benefit achy joints and muscles, as well as assisting you to relax. Sometimes insurance companies will cover medical related massage therapy, so it is definitely worth looking into.

Your masseuse doesn’t care to have to rub your feet. Make sure that you shower and smell pleasant and not like body odor for your massage. Your therapist will be happy, and it will also keep your own body smells from interrupting your own relaxation while they rub you down.

Why do you want to have a massage? Have you been in a recent car accident? Does your back hurt? Or are you simply looking for a good way to relax? Tell your therapist your motivation so they can work with it.

Sports injuries often benefit from a combination of massage for deep tissues and whatever traditional medical treatment your doctor recommends. Visiting a chiropractor, physical therapist or an acupuncturist can be helpful. These activities will work well in conjunction with one another as they help address muscle, bone and nerve issues. This can make things heal faster so that you can do what you love again.

It’s always a good idea to make sure your hands are warm prior to giving massages. Cold hands are unpleasant and can make the person getting the massage tense up. Simply place the palms of both your hands together and rub them vigorously together with some lotion.

When massaging your dog, be careful not to apply too much pressure. This can cause pain for your dog. Pay close attention to the signals your dog is giving you during the massage. If you find that your pet is not enjoying himself, don’t take it any further.

It’s a good idea to stretch and give yourself a neck massage every hour or so when working for a long time at your computer. Do this by joining together your fingers behind the neck, pressing your palms on the neck beside the spine. Gently massage down the back of your neck and up again. Your right hand should be used to press on your neck’s left side, right below your skull’s base. This should be done three times and then sides need to be switched. Pull your head back over your chair to stretch it out. Stay in that position for about thirty seconds total.

Working long hours on your feet can lead them to feeling very painful. To help alleviate the pain, give yourself a foot massage. Just do it when you take your shoes off. Treat your feet well with some moisturizing lotion and TLC.

Now you have the advice you need to de-stress through massage. My blog was full of advice to use when you’re trying to give or get a massage. Apply this information to find just the right massage therapist for you.

My accident happened on February 5th, 2012 after my bartending shift at the Blue Martini in Orlando, FL late one night. I was driving on my way to a friend’s house in Tampa, FL who I was temporarily staying with at the time. I was told that my car veered off the interstate and flipped five times, my body was found 50 feet from it. I’ve tried very hard to discover how my body made it that distance from the car, and who found me, but I still don’t know. The accident report didn’t say much. I received a phone call from a sergeant eventually who told me I was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center unconscious when my trach and feeding tube were implanted, but they didn’t expect me to make it. I was in a coma for five to six weeks after my car accident. I woke up with a traumatic brain injury, liver laceration, lung confusion, subluxation to my neck, amnesia, epilepsy, a fractured lumbar spine, and a fractured pelvis with pins implanted. The pins were removed a few months later. Talk about a painful surgery. Healing is an ongoing process, but for me there are some specific things that have helped along the way: Keeping track of everything to care for my daily hygiene. Listing these things with a dry erase marker on my bathroom mirror used to help. Recognizing what I’m not supposed to say. Deciding what TO SAY, what NOT TO SAY, and WHEN to say WHAT. Isn’t easy to do and I still haven’t mastered it. There are things I’m supposed to talk only to certain people about, and some things I should keep to myself. When I’m being upfront and honest with someone, I can’t assume whatever I’m saying or doing is right, just because in my head, being truthful is “the way I’m supposed to be”. Believe it or not, oddly enough, that isn’t always the case! Learning how to RECOGNIZE which is which is vital. Don’t believe what everyone says. Do your own research. Discover your own truth. Know who I can talk to with the confidence that I'll be given honest feedback from them. What prescriptions must I take daily, how many times a day, how many pills in each dosage, and how to stay on a schedule with my doctors so I don’t run out of my medications. How to keep myself on track. I try and find simple ways to include all things I need to do, my appointments, yoga classes, homework, social life, fitness, etc. Figuring out the most effective ways that can progressively help manage my pain. A therapist is a must have. Someone I can tell everything to and have it kept confidential. I must constantly fight hard to make each of my days better. That’s the way it is. Accept it, don’t give up, and keep going. YouTube and the Word synonym tool are necessities I can’t live without. Keep the alcohol to a MINIMUM. If any, but not drinking AT ALL is the best-case scenario-by a long shot. I’ve been working on how to stop talking out loud as much while being overwhelmingly passionate about things. For me, moving forward is about resilience. Why? I’ve learned that being resilient to words people say about, to, and against me have subconsciously built up an ulterior strength within me. This strength is like a shield that gives me the power to just keep going. To be resilient means to keep moving forward despite having the odds stacked against me. Just to keep it moving and continue giving my all every single day, gripping onto the hope it’ll all make perfect sense at some point. How the next day and the day after that aren’t going to feel the same. Resilience has aided me in finding somewhere I can fit in, and enjoy what I’m doing. Also, being resilient in my situation has created the ability for me to have a positive impact on others. I'm not depressed anymore. I’m quite happy with myself at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a long list of goals I’m going to achieve, or die trying. Haha, that’s the fight in me talking out loud. Resilience has abetted me in accepting the new Christy you could say. Vinyasa yoga has helped improve my pain and flexibility a lot. I’m sure my sanity too. I haven’t tried much meditation yet, but I plan to, although I tried a breathing exercise on Kevin’s Instagram last night and loved it! I want to get good at it. I don’t know why, but when I start feeling fatigued or when I just want to write my mind on paper, sitting by the ocean really helps calm me. I think I’m a bit hyperactive, but I’ve noticed when I wake up and go straight to the gym, get on the treadmill at 3.4 speed and just go for an hour. It really helps motivate me about my day and somehow makes it easier for me to fall asleep when I hop into bed. I also take part in Vinyasa yoga, instructed by Di, only 2 times a week hosted at Suncoast Fitness in St. Petersburg, FL. It has helped build my strength, improve my flexibility, and ease my thoughts to a noticeable degree. As I move forward in this journey and look to the future, I’m planning on one day starting a YouTube channel and raising money to develop an app for TBI survivors. Like a life coach in a sense, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to teach survivors how to use it, or make it very simple and self-explanatory. It would also be nice to make hospitals aware of the app one day so they'll be able to reference it and help others who have been affected by brain injury.
