Deep Tissue Massage Therapy Perfectly Compliments Strength Training

Have you ever started a new exercise routine and felt bad in one place all the time? How did that prevent you from progressing and getting the most out of your bodybuilding? The cause of chronic muscle pain is a combination of lactic acid build-up and muscle imbalance. Deep tissue massage therapy is a great solution.

Every time I go to the gym to exercise I see a lot of people who need a good Massage in Al Muraqqabat. There are many types of bodies with many different conditions. I see the huge guys who need a massage because their muscles are so hypertonic (chronically contracted), and at the opposite extreme, the women over 40 who generally have never exercised all day. weak, causing weakness. back or chest pain I realize that many people who work with personal trainers need deep tissue massage therapy to help them balance certain muscle groups, which would help them get the most out of their training. 

The lactic acid buildup is muscle soreness you experience when you start a new weight training routine or do something strenuous that you don't normally do, like kayaking or sprinting. It's the kind of painful feeling we've all experienced and it really makes you feel like you've done something. This buildup of lactic acid is common, harmless, and goes away quickly. It is easily treated with tiger balm, ice, and stretching. Deep tissue massage therapy will also help lactic acid pain go away faster.

However, when it comes to strength training, I am referring to the other part of the pain combination: muscle imbalance. It is not what makes you feel that you have done something, but the feeling that you have done something wrong. It's the aching, oppressive sensation you experience between your shoulder blades when you row, for example. 

Most people experience this feeling of muscle spasm at some point in their strength training routine and it prevents them from moving forward because it is not a common lactic acid pain, but a severe muscle imbalance that can lead to injury. Balancing muscle groups increases strength and flexibility; for example, the pectorals are often short and hypertonic, protruding the shoulder blades and causing pain in the neck and upper back.

The deep tissue massage helps to balance the muscles so that the body can function optimally. No one is perfectly symmetrical. We all have our areas where one muscle group lengthens and another shortens. For example, look in the mirror and see if one shoulder is lower than the other, or look to the side and see if your shoulders are positioned in front of the coronal plane of the body. Imbalances are also very common in the lower body. Lie on your back and see if one foot straddles the other. Also, one leg is usually a little shorter than the other.

There is nothing wrong with that and it is perfectly normal, but left alone it is not optimal for advancing your strength training routine. Deep tissue massage therapy will help balance muscle groups by releasing chronically contracted and contracted muscles and getting to the root of the imbalance. Many common factors cause muscle imbalances; for example, repetitive movements at work, incorrect postural habits, scoliosis, old injuries, and patterns of emotional maintenance. A good masseuse will be able to identify areas of imbalance, release hypertonic muscles, and balance the entire group (agonist and antagonist).

A good way to get stronger is to lift weights to target the agonist and antagonist muscle groups in a certain area. Let's take the example of the pectoral group (chest) and the latissimus dorsi group (back). When doing pull-downs, some people may experience a spasm as if one side of the lats is shorter than the other, as the left side descends before the right and is tighter. This could cause the left side of the latissimus dorsi to shorten and could even cause the trunk to twist slightly to the left, with the right pectoral and anterior deltoid shortened. This can cause pain that prevents a person from doing this exercise, although it is good under normal circumstances. Massage Center in Karama

An effective treatment is to have this client lying on the right side and for the masseur to lengthen the left rib and the serratus forward. The therapist must also release the tight muscle bands in the deltoid and rotator cuff, as well as under the scapula. Then, with the client supine, the massage therapist works to release the tight pecs and anterior deltoid on the right side. In this example, the SCM and trapezius would also need attention, as the entire shoulder girdle and neck area will be affected and need relief.
