We all know there are different types of massage: relaxation, therapeutically, in the depth of tissues, palliative massage or athletics.

If we want to relax and we also have muscle tension, it is good to follow the advice of a massage therapist.

However, we need some basic information before reaching it.

Relaxation massage is the most common, but let’s choose what suits us from another perspective – that of symptomatology.

  1. We are tense and feel a rigid back; we need relaxation

Therapists recommend relaxation and/or reflexology exercises.

We relax the mind, free our inner tension, calm the nervous system, and the muscles will follow.

The moment when we start releasing the tension in the muscles comes only after we have reached the relaxation state.

  1. We do regular exercises, but we do not have elasticity

We recommend massage for athletes.

This type of massage identifies problematic areas and the therapist then works on them.

The degree of movement increases suppleness, elasticity, and at the same time releases the chronic muscular tension.

It can improve the condition of the body, so we can add stretching exercises to our daily routine.

  1. We practice a sport, but we have flexibility issues and areas affected by chronic tensions

We recommend a deep-tissue massage and athletes. Deep massage can release chronic tension, while athletes’ massage can rebuild the muscles to reduce the likelihood of it occurring.

  1. We work on the computer all day, and the shoulders, neck and upper back have to suffer.

A therapeutic and/or relaxing massage is recommended.

The therapeutic massage corrects tensions in troubled areas, but at the same time, we need to relieve stress.

In this situation, we can also choose relaxation techniques.

Our choice will have to take into account the gravity of the problems we have with our shoulders, neck or posture, as well as the sensitivity to external factors.

The way we choose what we eat drastically influences the state of health, but also the appearance of the skin or hair.

Depending on what you use to put on the plate, you can have beautiful hair or, on the contrary, an unhealthy and unkempt hair.

When certain foods are found in the daily diet, you can forget about split tips, dandruff or fat, lack of volume, excessive dropping, and any other scalp problems.

To strengthen hair

If you have a “weak” hair, you can try to cure it by eating foods containing Omega 3. Omega 3 fatty acids are part of the cell membrane structure.

When they are missing, you are likely to face the tendency of losing hair.

The most important sources of omega 3 are seafood and fatty fish.

Vegetarians can enjoy soy, seeds, nuts and olive oil.

For hair growth

Sometimes, nutritional deficiencies make their presence felt through hair growth problems.

Fortunately, we can consume growth-enhancing foods.

The effects are due to the beneficial elements – proteins and iron, the same being found in eggs.

Natural alternatives are vegetables, chickpeas, lemon and quinoa.

For a shiny and beautiful hair

The origin of the lack of hair shine is actually the condition of the head skin (which is too dry).

When sebaceous glands produce insufficient sebum, the hair tends to remain dry, hence the look “extinguished” or “washed out”.

In addition to the action of sunlight and the excessive use of the stretch plate or dryer, which contributes to the phenomenon, it can also be an unbalanced diet.

Of great help are potatoes, but also other foods rich in beta-carotene (vitamin A precursor).

Among other things, beta-carotene favours the production of sebum, a real balm for the scalp and hair.

So, say a great YES to all fruits and vegetables covering the pale yellow and orange – potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, yellow apples, melon, papaya, peaches, pineapples, mandarins, corn, yellow peppers, oranges, etc.

Collagen is an essential substance for the skin, for a young and beautiful look!

See what foods you can consume to stimulate its production!

Our body produces less collagen as we get older.

It is located beneath the epidermis. It is the basis of tissues that support the structure of the skin and organs.

Sun, free radicals, cigarette smoke or pollution also contribute to lowering its levels.

In order to “repair” the damaged cells, the body always produces collagen. But around the age of 35, the level of this substance and its quality begin to decrease.

There are many collagen creams and products on the market, but they cannot do wonders.

We can also stimulate the collagen production of our body with a healthy lifestyle including certain foods in the diet.

Here are some:

White tea

Researchers have found that white tea protects skin proteins.

In addition, it reduces the activity of enzymes that lead to wrinkles.

Citrus

They are rich in vitamin C and can turn certain amino acids into collagen.

Green vegetables

Spring greens, broccoli, spinach or kale are rich in vitamin C which has antioxidant properties.

Orange vegetables

Carrots and sweet potatoes regenerate the skin because they contain vitamin A.

Red vegetables

Tomatoes, red peppers and red beets contain a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from ultraviolet.

Protein

Egg proteins are rich in collagen. They support the natural production of this substance. Consumption of nuts has the same role.

Soy

Soy contains genistein, a substance that acts as an antioxidant.

Pure fish oil

The skin cells are surrounded by a fatty membrane that protects them. When they are healthy, they are able to support the structure of the skin. The fish is rich in Omega 3, and the benefits of oil consumption are countless for health, especially for internal organs tissues.

According to Chinese medicine, there are 600 nerve points on the face, which we can be stimulated with the help of massage.

All of this is related to certain organs, so, we could say that while massaging the face, we are massaging, in fact, the entire body.

Facial massages can stimulate those energetic channels, called meridians, restoring the balance between body and soul.

Here’s what you can do during the morning shower:

  1. Wash your hair and apply shampoo. In shampoo, you can add one, two drops of your favourite essential oil.

Inspire deep and place your hands lightly on your head.

Let your fingers rotate slowly but vigorously throughout the scalp so that you can massage the muscles that are underneath and relieve the strain.

Rinse hair and then apply a natural conditioner.

  1. Put a little peeling into your hands and apply on your face.

Massage your forehead with the tips of your fingers with small and slow circular movements without pressing.

Do the same with your jaws and chin.

Then go to your nose and massage with your fingers.

Rinse your face with plenty of water.

  1. Massage with the tips of your fingers your neck and chest.

Movements should still be circular and slow because in these areas the skin is thinner.

Rinse again your face and hair with plenty of water.

 

Suggestions:
  • The water should not be too hot.
  • Finish the shower with cold, progressive water to stimulate blood circulation and muscle tone.

Have a wonderful day!
