Massage Therapy for Surfers

Massage Therapy for Surfers

My SPECIALTY is “On the Edge” Deep Tissue Massage. I work on a scale of 1 – 10, where 7 is on the edge and 10 is very excruciating pain. Some discomfort is necessary when receiving deep tissue massage to get results.   A lot of my clients handle the deep tissue pain or even like the deep tissue pain in order to get the quickest results for their body type. My style of Deep Tissue Massage releases the body’s natural painkillers whereby it stimulates the release of endorphins, the morphine-like substances that the body manufactures, into the brain and nervous system….kind of like a “Runners High” or a parasympathetic state “rest and digest” of mind.

Muscle Adhesions

Muscle Adhesions

My style of Deep Tissue Massage releases the body’s natural painkillers whereby it stimulates the release of endorphins, the morphine-like substances that the body manufactures into the brain and nervous system. Once that happens (your now in a parasympathetic state “rest and digest”) I then go to work on your injured area to break up the damaged fibrous adhesion’s which are spread randomly throughout a muscle thus increasing blood flow, oxygen, strength, flexibility, and tissue re-building.

The Limbic System

The Limbic System

The limbic system is a set of structures in the brain that deal with emotions and memory. It regulates autonomic or endocrine function in response to emotional stimuli and also is involved in reinforcing the behavior. Research has linked the limbic system to feelings of motivation and reward, learning, memory, the fight or flight response, hunger, thirst, and production of hormones that help regulate the autonomic nervous system. How do I calm my limbic system?
Through his neuro-imaging studies, Daniel Amen has documented that people experience calming in their limbic structures following EMDR treatment. Other venues for limbic calming include soothing music, prayer and meditation, mindful breathing, yoga, and exercise.

People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage.
