Deep tissue massage is part of therapeutic massage treatments.
Relief of Sciatic Pain Sciatica nerve pain results from irritation of the sciatic nerve. It is typically felt from the lower back, down below the knee. The sciatic nerve begins in the lumbar spinal cord in the lower back and extends through the buttock area to send nerve endings down the leg.
Commonly caused by a lumbar disc herniation directly pressing on the nerve, can also arise from irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve. Aside from a pinched nerve, irritation of the nerve from adjacent bone, tumours, muscle, internal bleeding, infections, injury are other causes, including irritation of the sciatic nerve during pregnancy.
Cupping Therapy is an ancient Chinese treatment for preventing
and treating diseases but is applied across Europe and the Mediterranean as well. It uses a cup to create a vacuum, either by burning or suction. It is another effective form of releasing blockages at specific meridian points throughout the body.Cupping can affect the body deep into the tissue, causing it to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries and activate the skin. It can assist to clear stretch marks and also improve the appearance of varicose veins.
Effective cupping will leave marks on your skin for a couple of days, but these will disappear quickly. Although these may have the appearance of a bruise, they are not painful and indicate that there is a deep-seated issue.
Reflexology is a form of massage in which pressure is applied to certain parts of the feet and hands in order to promote relaxation and healing elsewhere in the body.
It is based on the belief that there are a series of meridian lines throughout the body which pass through the various organs of the body and are connected through the nervous system to the ears, hands and feet. Stimulating specific reflex points in the feet aims to bring relief to poorly functioning areas of the body.
