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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
