How to Receive a Massage

I recently filled in at a Chiropractic Office for a massage therapist and on her wall she had this printout on  "How to Receive a Massage" for her clients.  as I was preparing the room for the next massage client it caught my attentionBetween massage sessions I had some time  to read it and really liked it so I asked the Dr. if he would mind if I used it for my website and in my business, Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works. I took a copy home and yes I did do a little editing and added or changed a few things but I wanted to share with anyone interested.....



Because Massage is not a common part of our contemporary cultural experience, many people feel uneasy about receiving their first massage. Here are a few guidelines to help you feel at ease and to gain the greatest benefit from your massage session.

Tell the therapist about areas of your body, which are injured, tense or sore. Also mention any medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart problem, chronic headaches, varicose veins or recent surgery. Most therapist have you fill out forms with these questions prior to your first session as they want to be sure there are no contraindications with the massage . With this knowledge they can decide which treatments you would benefit with the most.

The best way to receive a massage is with the body completely unclothed. The therapist is sensitive to the need for privacy and will keep your body covered with a sheet or blanket, except for the area being massaged. It will be uncovered while being massaged and then recovered when not. However if this  is uncomfortable in any way you may choose to wear under garments or a swimsuit, the client may choose to leave on as much clothing as needed for comfort.  This is your massage session and you should be as comfortable as possible.

Conversation can be distracting to you and the therapist. Good massage often requires the therapist to focus her thoughts and energy and concentrate on what your body is telling her and what she needs to do for your body to receive the healing process through the massage. Try to confine your conversation to feedback about the massage. Some people don’t realize that conversation is distracting them from truly feeling the sensations a massage gives. Try just concentrating on those sensations and you might be amazed at the difference it does actually make.

Once you are on the massage table close your eyes and allow yourself to relax as completely as possible. Focus your attention on your breathing, slow deep and even, allow yourself to experience all those relaxing sensations.

When the Massage Therapist’s hands locate areas of pain or tension in the body, try doing this mind exercise …consciously try to relax the area being massaged and as you inhale deeply visualize the breath flowing to the tense area and relaxing it then as you fully exhale visualize the tension leaving the body with the breath.

Allow the Massage Therapist to move your limbs into various positions. Be Limp, like a rag doll, and do not try to help move your arms, legs, or head. The therapist is a trained professional who will not do anything to hurt you. However, feel free to speak up if anything the therapist does is too painful or ticklish, or uncomfortable in any way. Most Massage Therapist ask the client about the pressure they are using if it is to much or not enough and when doing deep tissue they will most likely use a pain scale for you to communicate with them about the pressure being used as a trained professional they know the importance of pain scales and how to much pain can actually hurt you more than help you. So be sure and take the responsibility to inform the therapist of any discomfort so that adjustments can be made to the pressure and/or massage techniques being used.

Very often, as the body releases tension during a massage, the mind will release emotion. If you suddenly feel sad, angry or joyful do not be alarmed, allow yourself to express these feelings by crying or laughing. At the very least, feel free to sigh with the relaxation or hum with pleasure.

Many people fall asleep during a relaxing massage, an indication that the body and mind are releasing stress and tension. The massage therapist will gently wake you when it is time to turn over or end the massage.

Contrary to a common notion in our society about massage, it is an ancient healing art and not a sexual service. The body might become aroused as you experience the pleasure of total relaxation.  However, sexual behavior during the massage is inappropriate and will result in termination of the massage session. A Professional Massage Therapist will not tolerate any sexual advances as this is her profession and looks at Massage as the Healing Art it actually is.

Enjoy your massage and I hope that this experience will be the beginning of a lifelong practice to help you enjoy the benefits of massage for your overall health and well being.

Massage Therapy & Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

                      Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome


Do you have foot numbness or pain in your feet? You could have a condition known as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Massage Therapy along with Body Work are exceptionally powerful in treating conditions emerging from muscle and connective tissue anomalies. Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome reacts well to massage treatments.
 
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful entrapped nerve condition. The posterior tibial nerve is put under abnormal pressure by the connective tissue shaping the tarsal tunnel, the tendons space at the inside ankle and the lower leg muscles. The structures in that space, like tendons from lower leg muscles. When the muscle tendons passing through the tarsal passage tend to become enlarged and tight, you then get pain from the myofascial trigger points, knots in the muscle, and weight on the back tibial nerve which passes through the tarsal shaft. The pain from Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is generally found in the ankle, heel, and sole of the foot. Also, there may be a pins and needles feeling in sole of the foot and the toes. More often than not these symptoms are on one side, yet may affect both sides too.

There are numerous ways that massage therapy can help to treat Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Neuromuscular Therapy or Trigger Point Therapy to neutralize myofascial trigger points and relieve pressure in the flexor muscles whose tendons pass through the tarsal passage. Myofascial Release works on the muscles and fascia which can improve flexibility. Deep Tissue Massage helps in releasing chronic muscle tension by physically breaking down any adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Lower Back Pain




Professional Massage Therapy & Lower Back Pain


Most people have experienced lower back pain.  It is in fact, a very common complaint among many people, especially those who have been employed in physically challenging professions, athletes, as well as accident victims.  Recent studies have found that a professional massage therapy is one of the more effective, and money saving alternatives available, and more beneficial than traditional medical treatments.  Seeking the assistance of a professional massage therapist, Hesperia, CA, is the most beneficial treatment you will find!

Chronic lower back pain is among the top reasons patients see doctors, and alternative medicine practitioners.  Dr. Daniel Cherkin, Director of the Group Health Research Institute states that lower back pain is also a common cause of disability, work absenteeism, and 'presenteeism,' when people are unable to perform well at work.   A study involving 401 patients with ages ranging between 20, to 65 years, found some amazing results when these people were treated with massage therapy.
The study compared the effectiveness of structural massage, versus usual medical care, medication, and physical therapy.  Patients were randomly assigned to receive one of three treatments as follows:

· Group 1 – Full body relaxation massage, often called Swedish massage
· Group 2 – Focused deep tissue massage for pain related tissues, ligaments, and joints.
· Group 3 – Painkillers, anti inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, or physical therapy.

Groups 1 & 2 were given a one hour massage, once a week for 10 weeks.

After 10 weeks, the patients were surveyed again in relation to their symptoms, and mobility, and again assessed at 6 months, and again at 12 months.

Groups 1 & 2 reported that their lower back pain had improved significantly, or was completely gone altogether.  It was found that patients who received massage therapy, were twice as likely to see improvements in pain, and function, as those receiving usual medical treatment, as with Group 3.

After 10 weeks, approximately two-thirds of groups 1 & 2, had made substantial improvement as opposed to about one-third of those in the usual care group.   These results quite literally speak for themselves.

Even though studies in the past have somewhat concentrated on the benefits of deep tissue massage, this study has also proven that relaxation massage, also has incredible benefits.  There are two main reasons for this, relaxation massage is more widely available, and more affordable than a lot of traditional medical treatments, and medications.

If you are suffering with lower back pain, and want easily accessible, and affordable assistance, speak to Terree a Certified Massage Therapist of Blue Pacific Massage and Body Works.

Terree is a fully qualified, trained professional in a wide variety of professional massage techniques.

Healing with Massage

                                        



                
Before Treatment
         


                                                  
After Treatment

My very first client before I started Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works,  had a chronic injury from when she was young. She had been in  a car accident that affected the scapula and shoulder area. This person is someone I have known for most of my life and I never knew she had been in pain so long and the first time I went to do a massage for her I saw how off her scapula area was and I just said to her OMG I never realized and I can't believe this is so out of whack, when she was standing in front of me I could see how one side was so off it looked twice the size of the other and when she was laying prone (face down) on the table I could see how the one side was about 2 inches higher than the other, I was not sure how I was going to do this. I was still in school and she was letting me practice my massage on her. I was very determined to help her and make it right. I started off with just a full body massage to assess what I needed to do for her and as I progressed with the massage I could feel with my hands what areas I needed to work on most. I spent a lot of time on the upper back and shoulders to get her relaxed I then continued with the lower back and then the whole back then onto the arms and hands where I also found areas that needed attention, I continued with the massage, the legs and feet and no surprise here she had issues in these areas also yet not visible like her scapula and shoulder area. I then finished the Full Body Massage with the her lying supine (face up) massaging the legs feet arms hands and finishing with the neck and shoulders. When I was done with the massage I put her through some good stretching techniques (which she loved) and I knew from experience how the stretches would benefit her so this was a good thing.

Like I said I was determined to help her get rid of the pain she had accepted was going to be there forever yet I knew it didn't have to be. I told her what I wanted to do and we started a plan of sessions. My plan was to continue with the full body massage because everything in our body is connected in its own way and when one area isn't doing what its suppose to do another area steps in and helps but then it is doing more than its supposed to do and it becomes affected so another area becomes affected and so on and so on and now there is so many more areas that need attention. So I started her with full body massage sessions to relieve the tension and tightness so the body becomes relaxed and the healing process begins. Not only is the relaxed state of the body and mind healing,  massage brings blood to the area, the blood supplies water, oxygen, food and secretions and carries away carbon dioxide and waste products to be eliminated from the body, causing a healing process of its own. Repair takes place when infection- causing bacteria has been destroyed then the connective tissues cells send what is called fibroblasts to the area for the regenerating and rebuilding process of the area.

As I do the Full Body Massage I integrate other techniques that my client is comfortable with. Some Deep Tissue massage on the taut bands I find is beneficial only as long as the pain scale is ok for my client as I don't want to cause her to tighten up from to much pain as that would only hinder the process as we want to loosen the tightness not make it tighter. Everyone has different pain scales so it is important to be in good communication while doing any deep tissue.There is that good pain which is tolerable and actually feels good and then there's that pain that causes the body or muscle to tighten,which is not what we are aiming for. I also used some cross fiber friction strokes, Friction is specific circular or transverse movements, generally across the grain of fiber of the underlying tissues. It is not a sliding/gliding action like effleurage and is focused on a confined area. A variation called Cyriax Cross Fiber Friction is a very specific treatment technique frequently used to break up adhesion's and scar tissue. Using Myofascial Techniques to reduce fascial restrictions, Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) techniques to address trigger points and pressure points, using NMT I can usually feel when a tight area or taut band releases

I continued doing Full Body Massage sessions with her and each time I could see improvement and she was telling me how much better she was doing for example before she wouldn't feel her scapula against the seat back when she was sitting and now she could actually feel it. She didn't feel the awkward hitch in her shoulder it was now feeling relaxed and more like it should feel and her posture was improving giving her a more balanced feeling when she stood.

There was one time during our sessions where circumstances led to missing a session and although she was feeling good and didn't feel she needed it so it was ok if she missed a session  within a few days after the missed session, yes that soon, the pain returned and we could see a difference where as the muscle memory caused the muscle to return to where it had been for so long. I was doing what I call retraining the muscles with massage and body works, to return to their natural position to where they should be not where the injury caused the position of the muscles to go and because they stayed that way for so long  muscle memory causes them to return to that position until the retraining process takes over and they stay where they actually should be and were meant to be for their function. Missing the session didn't really do any damage it just set us back  prolonged the outcome.

The whole process took about 10 months of massage & body work therapy to retrain the muscles and get the body to realign itself to its natural stance where she is now pain free, has a better more relaxed posture and her overall health and well being has improved. She now keeps up on what I call body maintenance by integrating massage into her life schedule. She can now choose what type of massage she wants and one of her favorites is the Hot Stone Massage. She continues to have regular massage at least once a month if not more !!

I would like to add how important it really is to stick to a plan your massage therapist may give you as sometimes it does take time for the healing process to work yet from experience I have seen it work well. I also feel and highly recommend doing the full body massage as it may seem to you like "oh I only need this part of my body done" and yes that is very beneficial for the area but having the full body massage I believe will speed up the process of healing any area as the body is made up of a whole lot of different parts that all work together.

Massage For Tension Headaches

Are Tension Headaches Affecting Your Life?

We've all experienced that horrible headache, caused by stress and tension. They can stop us from being able to focus properly, can inhibit our performance at work, as well as stop any chance to relax. This in turn stops the body from being able to recharge the batteries, and the cycle continues. Seeking the assistance of a qualified, professional massage therapist just may be the answer!

A lot of people have heard the term “tension headache,” but may not exactly understand what it is. Basically, a tension headache is caused by stress, and exacerbated by dehydration. Pain seems to occur at the top, and/or sides of the head, and sometimes can also include pain behind the eyes, and stiff neck and shoulders. These can go on for days on end if steps aren't taken to fix the issue.

Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works is a professional massage therapy business, located in Hesperia, California. Owner/operator Terree Nelson, is highly qualified and experienced in a large variety of massage therapy methods, and techniques. Tension headaches often originate from a painful neck and shoulders. These are caused by stress, and even a bad posture, which can spread up to the muscles around the skull. Not many people are actually aware that there are muscles around the skull.

When we are experiencing this kind of headache, many people unknowingly add to it by clenching their jaw.  We can tend to do this in our sleep, without even realizing it.  This is also not good for the teeth. This tightens the muscles around the skull even further, resulting in constant headaches. So now we know what causes these headaches, how can Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works help?

Terree can effectively ease and soften the muscles around the sides of the head, temples, and where the neck meets the skull. Research has shown that chronic tension headaches can indeed be treated efficiently by a professional massage therapist.  An experienced massage therapist from Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works can also advise on exercises you can do yourself at home, or in the office, to help ease the muscle tension.

If you are one of the many sufferers of tension headaches, get a massage for tension headaches just Call or Text 760 680 7910 for your appointment!!

The Full Body Massage

What Is A Full Body Massage?


When some people think of a full body massage, they may mistakenly think of it as a sexual type of massage that goes on behind closed doors, while this can be true in some of the unethical massage business’s, and while massage in itself can be sensual, a full body massage, from a professional, and certified massage therapist such as myself, has nothing to do with sex.
Blue PacificMassage and Body Works is a licensed, professional, and qualified massage therapy business.

What a professional full body massage involves is the massaging of the entire body with pressing, stroking, and kneading techniques. Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works Full Body Massageincludes the upper and lower back, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet on both the front and back of the body. This Full Body Massage is a Swedish Massage combined with Deep Tissue (if needed) Shiatsu, Reflexology, Trigger Points and a few mild Stretching Techniques. This refreshing full body massage relieves stress and tension aches for pure relaxation. There are many different methods, and techniques used, depending on each client's needs. No two clients are the same therefore I treat each client according to their individual needs, issues, aches, and discomforts.

A full body massage more often than not uses a variety of massage techniques and methods, often combining them as opposed to one specific type. As an example, Swedish massage uses five styles of long flowing strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage refers to techniques designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Whereas a full body massage could use some of the Swedish massage in conjunction with other methods and techniques.

Some important factors associated with a professional therapeutic massage include:

· Massage is more often done on a professional massage table although some techniques use specific kinds of floor mats or a professional massage chair.

· Massage lotions, massage oils or massage gels are applied to help reduce friction on the skin.

· Soft music is usually played to help produce a calming and relaxing environment.

It is also important to remember, this massage can take awhile, usually Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works Full Body Massage will take from 80 to 90 minutes, also offered is a 2 hour full body massage which is very beneficial as it gives your body more time to stay in a relaxed atmosphere which plays an important part in the bodies healing process. You need to allow yourself and me the time to work on you properly, and professionally to ensure you are getting the maximum benefit.

Here are 3 Good reasons to get a massage this holiday season.

Massage Beats Stress: This is one of the most stressful times of the year for many people. Long shopping lists, your family is either coming or already here, and you’re almost out of time! Take the time to let someone else release your stress fighting hormones while you forget about all you need to get done for just a little while. Massage therapy will help you feel rejuvenated and you will probably get more done in less time.

It’s cold outside : When the temperature drops, muscles seem to tighten,  achy backs/hips/knees seem to set in. Let a massage therapist from Blue Pacific Massage & Body Works warm up those muscles and joints and help relieve your pain.

You’re doing so much more: On the go, carrying heavy bags, putting up lights, carrying boxes from their storage place, cleaning your house, standing while baking cookies for hours in the kitchen ect.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage Explained

Most of us have heard the term “Swedish Massage,” but probably most do not know it's origin, or how beneficial it can actually be. Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling, pioneered both Swedish massage, and physical therapy at the University of Stockholm in the early 19th century. Ling developed a system called “Medical Gymnastics” which incorporated movements performed by a professional therapist. This technique was brought to the United States in 1858, and is known as Swedish massage.

Swedish massage is now the most common and probably best known massage technique in the west. But how exactly can it benefit you?  Swedish massage involves the massage therapist using certain massage strokes to relieve muscle pain. Depending on your own individual needs, a professionally trained Swedish massage therapist, can either use slow and gentle techniques, or vigorous, and bracing.  A professionally trained Swedish massage therapist will first work to relax the muscles, and prepare them for deeper strokes or  “deep tissue” therapy.   Normally an experienced Swedish massage therapist will require about 50 to 60 minutes of your time to ensure you get the most benefit from this technique.

Unlike many other massage therapists, Terree communicates throughout the massage, to ensure you are completely comfortable, and to discuss any degree of discomfort you may be feeling.

Massage for Neck Pain

               Are You Suffering Neck Pain?
                                                             

Every one of us has experienced neck pain at one time or another.  It could be that you have an injury, a medical condition, or may have even slept the wrong way.  Regardless of the reason, neck pain and neck related pain, is never much fun to deal with, and can severely limit our day to day activities.  What you really need to do, is seek out a professional massage therapist, Hesperia, CA.

In the United States, neck pain is one of the most common health problems.  Usually, people will see their medical practitioner, and some will sometimes turn to alternative medical therapies, such as massage, for assistance.  Up until recently, little was known about the effectiveness of message therapy with neck pain, even though massage techniques have been used for centuries in many cultures.

A study was recently conducted at the Group Health Center in Seattle, with 64 sufferers of neck pain.  This study was NCCAM-funded.  Participants in the study had to have had neck pain persisting for at least 12 weeks to qualify, and were then randomly assigned to receive either massage treatments, or a self-care book.

The group assigned to receive massages, had up to 10 treatments over a 10 week period,which was provided by licensed, professional massage therapists.  A variety of massage techniques were used, as well as giving patients self help tips.  After the 10 weeks, this group was found to have had significant improvements in both function, and symptoms. After continuing the study for 26 weeks, the massage group again reported improvements in function, as well as symptoms, however, the self-care book group, had a medication use increase of up to 14%. There were no serious adverse experiences reported.

The conclusion of this study showed that not only is therapeutic massage safe, but has long term benefits for treating chronic neck pain, as well as in the short term.  Many cultures have known about the benefits of therapeutic massage for centuries, and many are now turning to professional massage therapists as part of their wellness programs.
