Massage Therapy. Benefits in the Musculoskeletal System.

Almost all massage processes improve the functioning of our skeletal muscles, but even help the smooth muscles of our blood vessels and the smooth muscles of the intestines in their action of peristalsis for the evacuation of physiological waste.

Therefore massage therapy is beneficial to treat contractures, allows us to eliminate the formation of adhesions and is certainly relaxing. Massage therapy promotes blood circulation.

When we say that the massage is decontracting is because the maneuvers of friction, static pressure, percussion, compression and friction reduce pain in the patient and the therapist feels in their hands as the situation of muscle tension of the person receiving the massage decreases.

Kneading, one of the massage techniques that we use in our Swedish Massage, when we practice deep tissue massage or relaxation, favors the elimination of “Venous Stasis” which is the slow circulation of blood that can create thrombi.

It is also known that percussion maneuvers improve blood flow.

The massages eliminate the metabolites (1) and decrease the sensation of pain and fatigue of the muscle.

The stretches deform the Golgi organ (2) and favor the relationship of the muscle.

Benefits in the Circulatory System.

The Circulatory System benefits from therapeutic massage in two of its components: Venous System and Lymphatic System.

In the superficial or subcutaneous circulation it relaxes the muscles and the fascia. This effect relieves congestion that blood vessels may suffer.

It diminishes the viscosity of the blood, by the own relaxation of the smooth muscles of the blood vessels.
The hyperemia created by the massage activates the entrance of the interstitial fluid in the blood vessels.
And as we all know an improvement in circulation implies better muscle function.

The massage therapy collaborates in the Return Venous, also improving the circulatory drainage since it has a positive effect on the venous valves.

With regard to the lymphatic circulation, the massage therapy prevents the stagnation of the lymph that gives rise to the edema. (which manifests itself in many people with swollen feet and hands).

Among other benefits, massage therapy avoids vascular congestion and favors the circulation of lymph.

Headache can be a symptom of a sternocleidomastoid lesion (SCM).

The sternocleidomastoid or SCM, the muscle that originates in the sternum and is inserted into the clavicle and the mastoid process of the temporal bone, in the back of the skull.

The muscle (SCM) controls the lateral flexion, the inclination of the head and the rotation to turn the head to the left and right.

Sudden movements, such as whiplash, can cause SCM injury.

An SCM lesion may cause swelling and redness at the site of the injury.

You may feel sharp pain when turning or tilting your head and difficulty holding your head up.

You may experience headaches, especially at the junction of the SCM at the base of the skull.

When the contracture occurs in the “sternocleidomastoid”, the person is unable to turn his head to a specific side, and this is what is known as “torticollis”.

Neck pain can radiate to the region of the trapezius muscles, the shoulders, the chest, the armpits or the scapulae.

To treat neck pain, physiotherapy is the best option

Relieving massage

Dolor de cuello, lesión del músculo esternocleidomastoideo.

El dolor de cabeza puede ser un síntoma de una lesión esternocleidomastoidea (SCM).

El esternocleidomastoideo es el músculo que se origina en el esternón y se inserta en la clavícula y en el proceso mastoideo del hueso temporal, en la parte posterior del cráneo.

El músculo (SCM) controla la flexión lateral, la inclinación de la cabeza y la rotación para girar la cabeza hacia la izquierda y hacia la derecha.

Los movimientos repentinos, como el latigazo cervical, pueden causar lesiones en SCM.

Esta lesión en el esternocleidomastoideo puede causar hinchazón y enrojecimiento.

Puede sentir un dolor agudo al girar o inclinar la cabeza y dificultad para levantar la cabeza.

Puede experimentar dolores de cabeza, especialmente en la unión del esternocleiodomastoideo en la base del cráneo.

Cuando la contractura ocurre en el “esternocleidomastoideo”, la persona no puede girar la cabeza hacia un lado específico, y esto es lo que se conoce como “tortícolis”.

El dolor de cuello puede irradiarse a la región de los músculos trapecio, los hombros, el tórax, las axilas o las escápulas.

Para tratar el dolor de cuello, la fisioterapia es la mejor opción

Masaje relajante
