If you’ve ever received a therapeutic therapeutic massage, you are already aware the benefits associated with rub remedy for your body and for your brain. When most people come in my experience to receive a massage they mention needing relaxation of tight, sore muscles. Additionally, clients always mention wanting stress pain relief.
We massage therapists know that massaging away firmness and pain always is great for stress relief, because there is a link between pain relief and stress relief. gravidmassage
The most frequent ‘tight muscle’ request for massage in my massage practice is massage for back pain and massage for neck of the guitar and shoulder pain. My spouse and i get requests for other areas too. However throat, shoulder and back therapeutic massage are my most common requests from clients. Rub therapists are skilled at helping muscles relax and release using many different types of therapeutic massage therapy.
Yet what most people are unaware of is there is one huge muscle in the body that cannot be straight physically reached by a massage therapist. This muscle is profoundly damaged (such other muscles) by stress, pain, repetitive use, mental trauma.
This is the heart muscle. Say howdy to your heart.
The heart will be a major muscle in your body. It gets sore and tight too from being stressed out and on the go. In fact the heart muscle is very much linked to the link between our body and head. Just think about how precisely your heart feels when you are stressed out. There could be a pinching feeling there, or a binding sense, or a clenched sense. When the heart muscle is tight it confines blood circulation to the recovery of body which can bring about lower energy levels, fatigue, pain, and inflammation.
Unlike other muscles in the body, the cardiovascular system can not be physical touched or massaged in the same way the shoulders muscle can. This is because the ribcage protects the heart and lungs. Though the heart is deeply afflicted and benefits greatly from massage therapy, but on a more subtle level. The heart just like other muscles within our body relaxes in synergy with our other muscles as they relax too. The complete body/mind is linked in a single fabric of awareness, so when we affect one area of the body we impact the remaining body as well.
Yet sometimes the heart muscle is so bound up and tightly held from inner stress that no amount of ‘outer’ massage or deep muscle massage will help it relax. This is where self meditation, self inhalation and mind/body awareness really come into play for everyone.
It is possible to see inside of yourself and feel into the tightness, pain in your heart. Once you are in that pain or tight part of your heart, the best way to give yourself an inner massage is to use your breathing to massage yourself into relaxation. Your breathing and breath carries a mindful energy. This conscious energy can be directed to the heart muscle and that energy can be used to softly massage therapy your heart into leisure. The heart responds to the breath energy forcing blood into it. All throughout. In fact many times as you us breath deep breathing to help the cardiovascular release and soften, the tight sore muscles of your back, neck and shoulders will release and soften as well. That is stress relief throughout. That is the total mind/body connection as well. While the heart is released and relaxed, blood moves more freely to relax of your body resulting in more energy, less pain, and the lovely feel great hormone flooding our body with bliss.
You know your heart is relaxed and releasing, when you can breath much deeper, once your chest and center area feels light and free. When you have that feeling of tranquility and serenity in the chest and heart space region.
Like I said as massage therapists, we can impact the hearts of our clients with our intention and occurrence for helping the whole body relax through our therapeutic massage techniques. Yet the biggest massage comes from within. The deep tissue rub of the heart comes from our own inner relaxation to our own energy space of our own heart.
