Cupping therapy involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. It helps increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
Relaxation massage uses techniques that are called general Swedish techniques. Techniques such as effleurage, which is used to promote relaxation, relieves some muscular tension and increases circulation.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger point therapy is an effective technique which is used to treat trigger points and muscular knots. This helps to decrease pain and relieve muscle tightness. Trigger points are formed in soft tissues. Acute trauma, overuse or repetitive microtrauma can lead to the development of stress on muscle fibres.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
The method of this massage is a slow, deep stroke that may include hands, fingertips, ball joints, heels of hands, forearms, and elbows. The idea is to navigate and aim to break up muscles and connective tissues that have scar tissue and tension knots. This treatment is great for musculoskeletal problems related to many sports-related activities such as strains and sprains.
