Relax with a Naturally Assisted Massage
Trigger Point Massage / Substantial Healing
Trigger Point Massage…Trigger points are involuntary tight tender spots in a contracted muscle. This creates pain and dysfunction within the muscle. They are in parts of the muscle where there is decreased circulation, increased muscle contraction, spasm and increased nerve sensitivity causing a sharp pain or a constant ache. They also can cause referred pain, or pain felt in other parts of the body. You can control, decrease or eliminate your muscle pain by treating trigger points yourself. When pressure is applied to the trigger point, the pain-spasm cycle is interrupted which helps stop the contraction making the pain go away.
Release the Trigger Points…To treat trigger points apply sustained pressure for a time long enough to release the muscle spasm, about 15-30 seconds to deactivate it, release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle normalising it and bringing it back to a healthy state. This procedure is one of the most powerful yet simple ways to treat muscle pain and discomfort.
Substantial Healing…Massage therapy can provide substantial health improvements and pain relief for a number of lower back problems. Specifically, for pain caused by a back strain, when the correct muscle is targeted, the pain can be controlled at its source resulting in quicker and longer lasting relief. Two main muscles, the quadratus lumborum and the gluteus medius, play a significant role in stabilising and supporting your lower back and hips. When there is a change in the biomechanics of these muscles due to strain or fatigue, various issues, such as lumbago, stiffness, and or decreased mobility can happen.
The Art of Self Massage
Healing into the Muscle
Quadratus lumborum muscle massage…The quadratus lumborum muscle extends throughout your lower back and consists of several layers. This muscle is an extensor of the spine, allowing you to bend backward. The muscle also helps you bend your torso sideways. This main muscle can become exhausted, stiff, strained, and painful when you perform certain daily activities including: lifting heavy objects, leaning over the sink, running on uneven pavement, and a slumped sitting position. A sharp, stabbing, urgent pain in your low back may indicate a hypertonic (tight) quadratus lumborum. Sometimes, you might feel a dull, ongoing pain with some degree of stiffness. The quadratus lumborum muscle might also develop painful trigger point nodules, which cause nerves’ entrapment within its fibres, or be subject to direct trauma, causing lower back pain. The muscle must be massaged and stretched simultaneously in order to reduce lower back pain.
Gluteus medius muscle massage…The gluteus medius is a posterior hip muscle. This muscle is a hip abductor, allowing your body to lift your thigh and leg sideways, such as while getting out of a vehicle. It is also responsible for keeping your hips levelled while standing on one leg (an integral part of your gait cycle when walking). The hip’s and spine’s biomechanics are interconnected; a problem in your hip muscles can cause lower back pain. The gluteus medius muscle can become painful due to weakness and imbalance from several causes including; repetitive trauma to the muscle form running on soft surfaces; overuse of exercise equipment that requires hip abduction; sudden, strenuous physical activities; previous injury to the muscle; blunt trauma from hitting. Gluteus medius muscle pain mainly affects your lower back and buttocks. The pain may also be referred into the back of your thigh. Stiffness and fatigue are also commonly present, limiting movements of your lower back and walking capacity.
Full Spectrum Back Comfort
Taking the time to self massage using your hands and these tools is a way to respect your mind, body and spirit, and treat them with the nurture they deserve. It is also a way to keep yourself in optimal health and balance, via the skin, which Ayurveda recognises as a major organ and vehicle to reach our internal organs. The skin is both a protective shield and a gateway to nourishing our bodies through our pores. Self-massage brings you back in balance, whatever you’re experiencing. It increases circulation, stimulates organ function, helps your body detox and improves sleep. Also more than anything perhaps is how it puts you into a slight medative state and increases self awareness.
Self Massage with your hands or these tools have many other potential benefits, such promoting longevity, nourishing your skin or preventing injury. It’s one of the most effective ways to calm modern life-induced anxiety, as well as leaving your skin looking smooth and radiant. It is also a great way to regularly check in with your body and get to know yourself, keeping an eye on changes, understanding your natural rhythms — especially for ovulating women. It’s the perfect time to explore your own body. Self Massage is a supportive way of seeing yourself with all your senses rather than through the often critical way we consider ourselves in the mirror or through photos.

Nurturing the Lymphatic System
In your body, your lymphatic system is the system responsible for eliminating cellular waste products. Hundreds of miles of lymphatic tubules allow waste to be collected from your tissues and transported to your blood for elimination, a process referred to as lymphatic drainage. When your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins can build up and make you sick. Lymphatic congestion is a major factor leading to inflammation and disease. By stimulating your lymphatic system and helping it release toxins, dry skin brushing is a powerful detoxification aid. Hopefully you can start to see the picture of why Dry Skin Brushing is just so beneficial now and try it for yourself.
