UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE: FASCIAL THERAPY FOR CYCLIST/RUNNERS AND DANCERS

Leg muscles are some of the most used muscles in the human body. They carry our body weight day in and day out while keeping us moving from place to place. Medical Massage Boutique on the Danforth has a Sports Massage Program, Fascial Therapy Techniques, Neuromuscular Therapy, Prenatal Massage and Swedish Massage.

The goal of any Therapist's fascial work is to reduce the restrictions, " Once they do the tissues and joints able to move better and there are fewer structural dysfunctions and imbalances.

How it Works?

The goal of Medical Massage Boutique's RMT's is to reduce tissue restrictions so that the structures are able to move better, resulting in fewer structural dysfunctions and imbalances.

In simple terms Fascial Therapy stretches the fascia and can be used anywhere there are fascial restrictions.

A great analogy is to ask the client if they have ever put on a T-shirt fresh out of the dryer. The T-shirt is sually a bit tight from the cleaning process, so it feels a bit uncomfortable. Fascia is like the tight shirt and the techniques are designed to stretch it out and allow them to feel better.

Understanding the difference:

Part of Medical Massage Boutique educating clients and potential clients about Fascial Therapy is going to involve helping clients understand how this modality is different from what you might think as a traditional massage.

The experience doesnt have to be uncomfortable though athletes or clients looking to recover quickly some discomfort maybe involved. So far a client is okay with a slower pace, more sessions might be needed to deal with the tissue.

OTHER ADVANCE HANDS ON MODALITIES BY MEDICAL MASSAGE BOUTIQUE

 Neuromuscular Therapy-Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a form of soft tissue manual therapy. It is distinguished from other types of massage in that a quasi-static pressure is applied to the skin with the aim of stimulating sprcific areas of skeletal muscle. Often these areas of muscle are myofascial trigger points. NMT-is a very specialized form of manual therapy.

 Swedish Massage: Study Examines the Effects of Swedish Massage Therapy on Hormones and Immune Function.

Massage is used for many health purposes, but little is known about how it works on a biological level. A recent study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine examined the effects of one session of Swedish Massage Therapy a form of massage using long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping on the body's hormonal response and immune function.

Funded in part by NCCAM, researchers from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, randomly assigned 53 healthy adults to recieved one session of either Swedish Massage or Light Touch ( in which the Therapist used only a light touch with the back of the hand). Both interventions lasted only 45 minutes and were performed by licensed massage therapist. Blood samples taken before and after the sessions were used to determine blood levels of certain hormones and circulating lymphocytes( white blood cells). The researchers found that participants who recieved Swedish Massage had significant decrease in hormone arginine-vasopressin( which plays a role in regulating blood pressure and water retention) compared with those who were treated with light touch. No significant differences between the two groups for the stress hormone cortisol or circulating lymphocytes. Significant decreases in proteins called cytokines(interleukin 4 and interleukin 10), but not others(interleukin 1 beta, interleukin 2, interleukin 5 and tumor necrosis factor alpha), where found for the massage group compared with the light touch group. These preliminary data led the researchers to conclude that a single session of Swedish massage produces measurable biological effects and may have an effect on immune system. Howeever more research is needed to determine the specific mechanisms and pathways behind these changes.

Massage on Danforth. "Massage and Pregnancy": Benefits of Prenatal Massage

 

 by: American Pregnancy Association

 

Studies indicate that Massage Therapy performed suring pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and  newborn health. Massage Therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques, one of which is called Swedish Massage.

Swedish Massage aims to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body . Swedish Massage is the recommended massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal circulatory changes brought on by hormones shifts.

Hormone Regulation

Studies done in the past 10 years have shown that hormone levels associated  with relaxation and stress  are significantly altered when massage therapy is introduced to women's prenatal care. This leads to mood  regulation and improved cardiovascular health. In women who recieved bi-weekly massages for only five weeks,hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol ( hormone associated with stress) were reducecd, and dopamine and cortisol (  hormone associated with stress ) were reduced, and dopamine and  serotin levels were increased ( low levels of these hormones are associated with depression).

These changes in hormone levels also led to few er complications during birth and few er instances of new complications, such as low birth weight. The evidence strongly suggests there are maternal and newborn health benefits when therapeutic massage is incorporated into regular prenatal care.
