People are grateful when you add value or something like extra benefits to their lives. What better way can there be than to enrich their lives than with a Hot Tub and the inherent lifestyle that it bestows on one and I set out below some of benefits of using a Hot Tub:- 1 The first one that springs to mind is Hydrotherapy that very clever combination of warm water, massage jets and semi-buoyancy that helps to provide a pleasant and unforgettable sensation. This hydrotherapy brings relief to sore muscles and joints and helps relax the mind and body to relieve everyday stress. What is Hydrotherapy? Hydrotherapy is the combination of this amazing liquid known as water, that when warm is often used in physiotherapy to help recovery from injuries and to relieve muscle stiffness and aches by assisting in the reduction of lactic acid. Warm, soothing water helps to open the blood vessels to naturally assist and improve blood circulation. The increased circulation helps to bring nutrients, and thereby helps the tissue and muscle groups around arthritic joints relax, and promotes the flow of endorphins in the body 2 The second thing is a much improved and more relaxing sleep as when you use a Jacuzzi you will sleep much deeper and feel much more relaxed and refreshed when you wake up.
Everyone that has experienced a full body massage knows that it fills you with a sense of peace and tranquility which stays with you long after the massage is over. There is also much more to massage than just it's wonderful ability to release tension and stress. The health benefits of massage are plentiful and by getting regular massages your health can improve tremendously. The need for touch is one of the basic needs for all life, just as important as eating and drinking. Some studies in Russia have revealed that babies who aren't touched enough are not nearly as healthy as other babies. By using the power of touch in the form of a massage, wonders can be created, both for your body and your mind. A great benefit from receiving massage is that it increases the circulation and makes the blood flow with more ease throughout the body. When the blood flow increases it helps the cells to work more efficiently and it can be beneficial to those suffering from high or low blood pressure.
Most people suffer from tension in their necks and shoulders at some time in their lives, which is hardly surprising if you consider the job the neck has to do! Poor posture, bad working positions, and carrying heavy bags all conspire to make the problem worse. However, you can ease the pain with a remedy literally at your fingertips. Getting to the core of tension This simple self-massage exercise gets right to the core of the tension and eases it gently and effortlessly; you can try it almost anywhere and at any time. Try to focus on the areas that feel most tense, and work slowly, deeply, and methodically. Tilt your head back, and with the palms and fingers of each hand, squeeze the flesh at the base of your neck on either side of your spine. Then, slowly roll your head forward, still squeezing your skin. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds, then return your head to an upright position. The amount of flesh you can squeeze depends on your state of relaxation. Stroke your hands up and down the back of your neck to warm the area.
Everyone feels great after a well done therapeutic massage. Massage has been documented back to 2700 BC and found in many ancient cultures. For example, it is documented that the Chinese, Egyptians, Indians, Greeks, and Romans all benefited from therapeutic massage. In fact, Hippocrates wrote of the benefits of massage in the 5th century BC. However, even with widespread awareness and rich history, few people realize how many health benefits there are to getting a massage and why it has such profound effects. Therapeutic massage can be used for pain control/relief, healing, and overall wellness. Naming just a few benefits, a good massage, especially one that works into your muscles such as a deep tissue massage, can help alleviate back pain, enhance the immune system, exercise weak muscles, increase flexibility, lessen depression, improve circulation, and relieve tension. With all these benefits, the primary advantages can be summed up as reduced fatigue and increased energy.
Everyone should have at least one aromatherapy massage sometime in their life. You have the wonderful feeling of tense muscles becoming relaxed, while soothing or revitalizing massage oils are spread onto the body. The incredible aroma permeates the nostrils and goes straight to the brain. You can feel the tension, no matter what essential oil is used, flow right out of the body. It is a feeling like none other and is one that many people find addicting. Most aromatherapy massages take place in a spa. The session begins with you undressing and being draped with towels to cover any areas not being treated by the rubdown. The masseuse will combine essential oil with base oil in order to produce aromatic oil which will be used during the session. Different aromatherapy essential oils include: lavender, vanilla, peppermint, eucalyptus and sandalwood. The base oil may be grapeseed oil, apricot oil or almond oil. The masseuse will probably not use any body lotions, as these have a tendency to wear off quickly during a massage.
Self-massage is often just as therapeutic as being given a massage by someone else and you should try to do it on a regular basis; it can boost energy levels when you are feeling exhausted, ease aches and pains, banish he tensions of the day, and, most importantly, provide you with the opportunity to spend time on yourself. Feeling your way to a full facial The face and scalp are especially well suited to self-massage; we instinctively stroke our foreheads when we have a headache and hold our foreheads when concentrating. The face contains a huge number of nerve receptors and, therefore, a face massage can have profound effects all through the body, changing our mood, enhancing relaxation, and controlling pain. The scalp, too, can store a surprising amount of tension the skin will feel taut and difficult to move if it is not relaxed. Stroke your whole face with soft, molding hands. Then, with the fingers of both hands, stroke slowly and firmly from the center of your forehead out to your temples.
For most people the arms and hands are the most used parts of their bodies, whether from spending long periods of time at a computer, playing a sport, or just doing day-to-day chores. Everyone, therefore, will benefit from a massage of their arms and hands. Not surprisingly, tension in your arms can create aches and pains in your shoulders and neck; strong movements are required to unlock tightness in the upper arms and forearms. One-handed kneading This one-handed massage can be done fully clothed, so you can do it wherever you happen to be when the need arises. Begin by stroking your left arm from the wrist to the shoulder, working firmly as you move up the arm and then gliding gently back down again. Squeeze and roll the muscles of your left arm between the fingers and heel of your right hand. Start kneading on your upper arm, and work down from the shoulder to the wrist. Use your knuckles to make rotary pressures all along your arm, working as deeply and rhythmically as you can.
It's natural to rub your abdomen when you have a stomach ache, and any form of abdominal massage, however basic, is extremely comforting. Although you can massage your abdomen while sitting up, it is much more relaxing if you lie down. Lie somewhere comfortable, with a small pillow under your knees so that both your back and abdomen are relaxed. Always use a clockwise motion when massaging the abdomen since this follows the workings of the intestine; this can help relax the abdomen, which, in turn, can aid digestion. Stroke one hand after the other around your abdomen in a clockwise direction, lifting one hand over the other in a continuous flow. Increase the size of the circle to cover the whole area, then gradually make it smaller again. Apply static and circular pressures all around the abdomen, following the outline that you traced with your strokes in step 1. Use one hand on top of the other, or the palm of just one hand, depending on how much pressure you want to apply.
Now that you have been introduced to all the basic strokes, I am sure you can hardly wait to put the moves together into a complete sequence. Don't worry if you don't have a willing partner close at hand, because doing a massage on yourself is the perfect alternative! By practicing on yourself, you can discover how your hands might feel on others. Legs and feet Our legs and feet have to support all our weight so it's not surprising that they often ache and feel tired. A good massage can relieve this tension and leave them feeling light and energetic. Knowing how to massage your legs is useful whether you lead an active or a sedentary life, and regular massage of your thighs can even improve their appearance. Few things are more exhausting and aging than sore feet. By massaging your feet daily, you can relieve tiredness and really relax; in fact, some practitioners, notably reflexologists, believe that foot massage can stimulate your whole body. Soothing aching legs With massage, you can relieve aching legs after standing for too long and help tired muscles recover after exercise.
Originally derived from ancient Thai traditions, Herbal Thai massage is slowly becoming a popular western modality. Thai yoga massage itself dates back over 2, 500 years with roots from both Indian and Chinese healing practices. The combination of a Thai herbal compress and traditional Thai massage techniques create a treatment designed to soothe almost any aliment one might experience. History of Thai Yoga Massage Jivaka Kumar Bahaccha, Buddhist monk and founder of traditional Thai medicine and Thai massage techniques, established Thai massage to alleviate pain by improving the flow of 'prana' or life energy within the body. Prana circulates through the body along pathways called 'sen lines'. Theoretically, when someone is experiencing pain or disease there is an upset in the flow of prana which flows along these sen lines. When these blockages are stimulated with the pressure, stretching and kneading techniques, along with modified yoga postures used in Thai massage, it releases the blockage allowing prana to move freely again.
