Stages of Healing
There are four main stages of healing through massage:
relief, correction, strengthening, and maintenance.
The first few sessions of massage therapy will be aimed to relieve
pain, reduce muscle tension and relax stressed nerves. The relief sessions
are aimed at the symptoms of the problem.
When the pain is gone, the therapist will work on the problem that
caused the pain. Techniques will be aimed at stimulating your lymphatic
system and freeing knotted and scarred muscle fibers.
Strengthening is important in a badly damaged area. Weakness at the
injury site can mean recurring problems. Techniques will be aimed at
strengthening the tissues near the injury, enabling them to provide
adequate support when the injury is healed.
Maintenance is the final stage in healing and the first step in preventing
other injuries. Maintenance techniques are aimed at treating the problem
and preventing the occurrence of new problems.
