Most people at one time or another, have experienced muscle tension. This happens when the muscles in a specific area contract, but fail to relax when necessary. The causes of muscle tension are vast, ranging from overuse of the muscle, certain medications, strain, and stress.
At Wayne Massage, we offer muscle tension massage as well as a wide range of other services to assist you with muscle tension treatment. Our goal is to help you relax and improve your health and well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage
When it feels as though you have knots in your back, these are actually called adhesions. Adhesions occur when muscle or tissues stick together. Deep tissue massage is a practice of applying pressure to the muscle and soft tissue to reach areas where adhesions have occurred.
Deep tissue massage may also be used to break down scar tissue and increase blood flow. Proper blood flow is extremely important when it comes to the health of the muscular system. Issues with the muscles such as knots or scar tissue are a result of poor circulation, inflammation, and a limited range of motion.
What to Expect
During a deep tissue massage, you can expect the practitioner to start with light and gentle pressure to help prepare your body for relaxation. Gradually, the practitioner increases pressure along with a variety of techniques to influence deep tissue release.
Deep breathing is encouraged to facilitate the entire process. Some techniques that may be used include fingertip pressure, elbow or forearm pressure, friction, and stripping. Stripping is gliding of pressure along the length of the muscle to increase blood flow and circulation.
Deep tissue massage may provide relief for a number of conditions such as fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, limited mobility, and many more. If you feel a deep tissue massage may be helpful for you, Wayne Massage in Sydney provides a professional, tailored experience to fit your needs.
Another service provided at Wayne Massage to assist in muscle tension treatment is sports massage. Sports massage is designed for athletes at every level of intensity. It is a type of remedial massage that helps with quick recovery, helps to prevent injury, and assists with stretching. Sports massage targets overused and stressed areas of the body caused by forceful and repetitive movements.
We utilise treatments specific to your area of involvement combined with relaxation techniques. Receiving regular sports massage may reduce your risk of injury, increase your endurance, and limit fatigue.
What to Expect
During a sports massage, the practitioner may walk you through a series of gentle stretches. Percussive strokes may be used to tone muscles and stimulate blood flow.
Two-handed kneading is a technique often used to loosen tight muscles. Sports massage is another form of muscle tension massage proudly offered at Wayne Massage.
Another type of muscle tension treatment offered at Wayne Massage is called Dry Needling. Dry needling targets myofascial trigger points or painful knots in the muscles. These trigger points are sensitive areas where different nerves, muscles, and fascia connect in the muscular system. These points help regulate the body’s cycle of pain.
Dry needling provides a science-based therapeutic intervention process. This process may interrupt and reset the body’s pain cycle, causing tremendous pain relief. It may be a good solution for muscle tension and chronic pain sufferers. Wayne Massage offers premiere dry needling services in Sydney.
What to Expect
Dry needling is a safe and scientific process that promotes healing and relaxation. Your practitioner guides you through the steps and ensures all your questions are answered.
When the patient is ready, small needles are inserted into the myofascial trigger points and then removed shortly after. This process may be repeated multiple times to allow the release of surrounding muscles, desensitise the nervous system, and allow for reduced nerve compression.
