For the love of the lower limb!
During school I had a great love for treating the shoulder & cervical region complex.
Since being in the real world, I have been seeing a great number of lower body imbalances that lead to upper body pain and dysfunction.
It’s a wonderful feeling to have theory meet practicality, but then again it’s even more wondrous to see the immediate relief of the upper body pains just by treating the lower body imbalances, especially when your clients see the long term vision. ?look at the bigger picture??? #globalvision #globaltherapy #THL #thehealinglotus #massage #massagetherapy #manualtherapy #rehab #toronto #ottawa #6 #mississauga #health #fitness #vision #selfcare #therapy #relaxation
Did you know that exercise has been observed to improve brain function aside from physical ability? This is because exercise can increase energy levels which then causes an increase in the serotonin in the brain. The increased serotonin can lead to mental clarity, allowing exercise buffs to think better than the rest of the population.
Keep your mind off of big worries and live with positivity every day. Take Hedy Lamarr’s words for it – “I don’t fear death because I don’t fear anything I don’t understand. When I start to think about it, I order a massage and it goes away.”
So, you’ve just come home from a tiring day pushing pencils at the office. Your neck is sore, your lower back is practically killing you, and you can barely even muster the effort to put together a quick meal. It seems you’ve earned a well-deserved massage. But with all the many different kinds of massage available, how do you know …
Self-care is so important to every aspect of our lives, ?mental & ??physical.
Start with something as simple as a warm Epsom salt bath and your favourite book/show. #plugout from life’s hassles?? Although there is a lot of debate regarding the efficacy of Epsom salt baths, the mental deceleration of simply soaking your aches away is hydrotherapy enough and THAT should count for something if not anything else!
No one ever soaked in a tub of warm water, with a book/fav tv show and came out feeling totally like ???Never not Ever lol☝?️ Self love is vital to growth, change and success in every facet of life. We are leaving you with NO EXCUSE not to implement a little self healing for your body so you can perform at your best daily?? #maketime #practice #selfcare #love #generosity with yourself #THL #thehealinglotus #massage #massagetherapy #manual #therapy #toronto #ottawa #mississauga #6 #rehab #active #lifestyle #zen #relax #meditate
The world’s largest massage happened in May of 2014, when 1,000 Indonesian massage therapists gathered with 1,000 civilians and gave each other massages. This managed to set the world record for the largest massage to have ever occurred in human history.
Does Deep ?? = effective?? You may have walked into your appointment knowing you want deep tissue work, but once your therapist starts working on you, you feel as though they aren’t tipping the iceberg in regards to how deep you want your treatment to be.
You can always tell if 1: they know what they are doing, or 2: they are unsure with their hands.
That being said, your tissues are comprised of layer upon layer upon layer upon layer of this that and the other. An effective therapist would know to begin superficial and work their way down. A solid structure isn’t one to lay an elbow in from the beginning.
Be aware of what your therapists hands feel like. If you sense uncertainty in them, emphasize the quality and depth to treatment you require.
If they know what they are doing they will confidently explain to you their technique approach AND let you know what they are feeling on your body.
