Lower Back Pain

 Massage Therapy & Lower Back Pain

Recent studies have found that 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, is the most beneficial treatment you will find!

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.

This type of massage treatment works for other areas of the body, upper back, neck, arms, legs ect.  

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.

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.
