There are just some days work can be overwhelming. For some, it could be physically exhausting, while for others, it could be mentally draining. Sometimes, work becomes so much that all you're looking forward to at the end of the day is some respite and relief.
Massage therapy has been dubbed as the alternative to traditional medicine. This healing and relaxation technique works effectively against a myriad of minor ailments. That's why to deliver better experiences, health companies have come up with massage chairs to address the population's need for quick relief.
Concerning high-quality massage chairs available to the public, the Osaki OS-ASTER Massage Chair is an excellent option. Not only is it suitable for a variety of minor medical concerns, but it also helps foster an overall feeling of wellness.
A Quick Comparison of Common Massage Types
Massage therapy has become the personal favorite of many, particularly those from the working population. Unlike traditional medicine, massage involves rubbing and stroking, plus a combination of heat and pressure to deliver maximum efficacy to the recipient.
Not surprisingly, massage is the sought-after treatment of several physicians, despite not relying on scientific explanations. To date, there are numerous massage types actively practiced, and each of these has its mechanism of action. Here is a look at three of the most common types.
You've probably heard of acupressure, an ancient healing art loosely based on the traditional practice of acupuncture. It requires pressure application on specific areas of the body, coined as acupoints. This practice has been known to work against problems concerning the mind, emotions, and spirit. Ultimately, its goal is to restore the body's natural health and balance by regulating yin and yang (negative and positive energy).
Acupressure is typically recommended for patients during the post-surgical phase. It's also advised for those suffering from motion sickness, as it minimizes nausea. Acupressure also reduces pain levels in the back or those caused by other conditions, such as arthritis and surgeries.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Suppose you're familiar with the condition of myofascial pain syndrome. In that case, you'd know that the way to treat it is through physical therapy. To be precise, myofascial release is the recommended approach to reduce chronic pain caused by oversensitivity and tightness in the myofascial area. Trigger points are the focus of this therapy, as they are believed to cause soreness and pain.
As part of the massage session, myofascial release therapy involves gentle massage of the myofascial, particularly the stiff and tight areas. It's easy to recognize such sites since normal myofascial feels elastic and pliable to touch.
Then, using light and manual pressure, plus a combination of massaging and stretching techniques, the therapist goes around the affected region multiple times. This therapy provides quick relief to the affected tissues.
Active Release Therapy
First developed in the 1990s, Active Release Therapy is now considered the go-to technique for athletes to recover as fast as possible. Of course, a full-body massage works too, but it takes longer to deliver the complete therapy.
Active Release Therapy addresses minor soft tissue concerns, usually involving the tendons, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and fascia. Though ART was initially conceived for professional sports players, anybody can benefit from this technique. If you're suffering from soft tissue injury and you need to repair your muscle's full range of motion, this method is beneficial.
