POWER OF MASSAGE
How many of you have never been in a massage? I don’t think I would see a forest of hands asking this question in any adult audience. We all once visited a massage specialist and underwent this body-beneficial procedure.
There are many types of massages, I will talk about the most popular and useful. Perhaps the main favorite is a therapeutic massage. Its main purpose is to quickly restore the functions of organs and systems of the body in diseases and after injuries. After a therapeutic massage, blood circulation improves, due to which beneficial substances arrive to the organs faster, and this, in turn, accelerates the healing process.
Personally, I, knowing my back problems, go through a 10-day course of therapeutic massage every six months: in spring and autumn. It is believed that it is at this time of the year that old sores become more acute, and the body needs help in dealing with them.
By the way, therapeutic massage for the back has the highest demand among other types of massage. And this is not surprising – a sedentary lifestyle, overweight, wearing uncomfortable shoes lead to muscle tightness and a violation of the cushioning abilities of the back. As a result, we get a scourge of the 21st century – osteochondrosis of the spine, as well as the appearance of protrusions (an intermediate stage of a hernia of the spinal disc) and even hernias.
Another well-known type of massage, especially on the eve of the bathing season, is considered anti-cellulite. It helps eliminate cosmetic skin defects and promotes weight loss by eliminating toxic substances from the body through the lymphatic system.
However, all who decide on it should know that his technique is more rigid than therapeutic massage. Here, plucking, tapping, intensive kneading, and even shifting are actively used. Nevertheless, despite the painfulness of the procedure, it is quite effective. I remember how I once went to an anti-cellulite honey massage. It seems that my screams were heard even in the neighboring yard. But, I will not hide, in just 10 sessions I managed to throw a few centimeters on the hips and buttocks.
If you want to pamper yourself, relieve stress, restore strength – you better not find a relaxing massage. Special soft techniques of such massage relieve microstresses of muscles that arise unknowingly, as a reaction of an organism to a stressful situation. Often a relaxing massage is done with aromatic oils, which, among other things, nourish the skin with useful elements, as well as hot bags with natural herbs, which additionally warm.
It is mistakenly believed that Thai massage is also aimed at relaxing the body. However, its main function is to restore the natural position of the musculoskeletal system, normalize metabolism in cells and increase flexibility, and only then eliminate nervous tension and clamps in the body.

Such a massage is carried out on the floor, without the use of oil, while the client is in comfortable clothes. The Thai massage technique involves puncturing muscles, stretch marks and twists, which contribute to the production of synovial fluid – a thick elastic mass that fills the joint cavity.
