A decontracturizing massage in Barcelona to be in harmony

A decontracting massage is an excellent form of treatment that can help relieve tension and pain in muscles and joints. This type of massage is especially beneficial for those suffering from physical stress, exhaustion or postural problems due to a sedentary lifestyle. Its objective is to relax the affected areas of the body through gentle pressure and specific movements.

The main objective of this type of massage is to relax all contracted muscles, promote blood circulation and release the energy accumulated in them. This will help reduce tension and pain, improve mobility and flexibility, as well as reduce stress levels.

During the massage session, the therapist should use a combination of different techniques, such as kneading, acupressure, friction and stretching. The massage should also be performed with slow and gentle movements, which help to relax the body.

For best results, it is important to drink plenty of water after a massage session and avoid strenuous activity shortly afterward. In addition, it is recommended to perform this type of massage regularly to maintain a state of relaxation and well-being.

Do you want to know more about decontracting massage?

It is believed that decontracting massage was first developed in China during the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – 220 A.D.). The Chinese used it to relieve pain and tension in tense muscles, especially those caused by the rigors of work or excessive physical activity. The technique consisted of a series of deep strokes and kneading movements applied directly to the area of tension. This helped to break the knots or trigger points of the muscle fiber, which allowed for improved flexibility and range of motion.

Over time, this technique has evolved and adapted to different cultures. In Europe, during the 16th century, Swedish massage incorporated many aspects of decontracting massage into its practice. The French also adopted this technique as part of their own massage styles, which remain popular today.

Today, decontracting massage is a widely accepted form of muscle manipulation that is often used in conjunction with other forms of therapy, such as physiotherapy or chiropractic. Massage therapists use various techniques such as effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), friction (tapping) and tapotement (tapping) to exert pressure on the affected areas to release tension and improve elasticity. Many people find it helpful in relieving muscle pain and increasing mobility.

The benefits of decontracting massage include improved joint mobility, reduction of chronic muscle pain and improved sleep. It can also help reduce anxiety and emotional stress by stimulating blood flow and oxidation to stressed muscles. One of the most common minor side effects of this type of massage is a slight post-massage syndrome, characterized by mild muscle cramps or temporary tenderness in the treated areas for several hours after treatment.

In general, decontracting massage can be an effective way to relieve many different chronic and acute muscle problems without the need for medication or invasive surgery. However, because there are many factors involved in any body condition, it is always advisable to consult with a qualified professional before initiating any therapeutic program or treatment.

The main techniques used during decontracting massage are deep pressure, passive stretching, gliding movements, tapping and rubbing. These techniques can be applied to specific areas of the body to treat specific problems.

Deep pressure involves pressing hard on the painful area for a few minutes to reduce muscle tension. Passive stretching consists of gently stretching the muscle to achieve greater flexibility. Gliding movements are light frictions that are performed in a downward direction to relax the affected area. Tapping consists of lightly patting or pecking the injured area with the fingers to reduce accumulated muscle tension. Finally, rubs are small frictions made with both hands on the affected muscle tissue.
