Why Massage – Why Do People Use Massage, And What Do They Use It For?

massage blogThere have been a lot of changes in the health industry in the last few decades, and many new or previously rarer therapies have been getting a lot more attention because of this.  Massage is one of those therapies now getting more attention and use, with much medical research being done into the benefits of massage, and many massage styles being modified and tailored to compliment research findings.

 

One of the most medically tested styles of massage is Lymph Drainage Massage – designed to increase the flow and drainage of lymph fluid and thus reduce cellular waste build-up.  Lymph Drainage Massage is now often done in hospitals to help patients with kidney or heart problems whose systems have trouble expelling lymph fluid without assistance.

Aromatherapy Oils

When creating Aromatherapy blends, essential oils are used. This gives blends therapeutic properties as well as a scent.  Aroma therapists usually blend oils using a similar method to that used to create perfumes. Normally only three or four essential oils are used in a blend and these will be comprised of at least one each of top, middle and base notes.  This can make a blend smell more pleasant or balanced but it also means that the blend will have a synergy since different oils can be combined to create a blend with more therapeutic properties than that of a single essential oil.  Blends can be made to help with a variety of symptoms or problems because of this.

Essential oils can be divided into top, middle and base notes although there is still debate over some oils as to which category they belong in.

World Osteoporosis Day

Tomorrow is world Osteoporosis Day, there are over 3 million people in the United Kingdom alone who suffer with Osteoporosis, for many it is so severe that daily tasks  become very difficult and life can be frustrating as mobility is often affected when bones are broken.

 

Osteoporosis is the weakening of bone to the extent that the chances of breakages and fractures are more than average. As a person gets older the density of their bones decreases which is perfectly normal but for some their bone density decreases far more rapidly. It is often associated with menopausal women due to the changes in estrogen levels. But it can affect men, young women and even children.  Continue reading
