What Is Massage Therapy
In this form of hands-on bodywork, a trained therapist uses manual pressure to help release knots in connective tissue and muscles. The goal is to ease tension, ease stress, and improve the overall function of your body.
A skilled Temecula massage therapist will take the time to get to know their clients and any underlying conditions that could be causing their discomfort. This will enable them to design a successful treatment plan that addresses their individual requirements and goals.
Myofascial releases are a form of massage that relieves muscle tension and tightness due to fascial immobility. This condition occurs when the natural fluid state of the fascia becomes hard and tightens, which prevents movement in the affected area, which could cause widespread pain throughout the body.
How it works
Your therapist will look at your fascia (the connective tissue that connects your muscles) and locate trigger points. These are areas that are tight or stiff. The majority of these points aren’t the same as the areas where you feel pain, since you could be suffering from referred pain from a different area of your body.
How does it feel
The massage therapist uses gentle pressure using a manual device to work on the trigger point to stretch it and let it go. They might hold the trigger point for a short period of time as they work on it.
Self Myofascial Releasing
Self-myofascial release can be done at home using foam rollers, or other myofascial tools like balls, massage sticks and massagers. This is a great alternative for busy people who can’t get to an experienced massage therapist often as they would like to.
