Massage Techniques for Arthritis with Emu Oil
By Emu Spirit | September 23, 2021 | Blog
We all enjoy a good massage, and it can be beneficial to anyone for relieving tension and stress, but for some it can also be used as a regular part of managing chronic conditions, including arthritis.
Approximately 3.85 million Australians are impacted by arthritis, suffering from chronic pain, inflammation and stiffness. Among them, some cope with the pain by using regular massage to improve their joint mobility, help them relax and to sleep in some comfort.
Here are 5 of the best massage techniques for easing arthritis symptoms:
1. Relaxation Massage
This technique uses long strokes, circular movements and kneading to loosen tight muscles and improve circulation. The blood circulation releases tension and stress to encourage the body to relax.
2. Deep Tissue Massage
This technique targets problem areas, directly addressing the chronic pain. Deep tissue massages focus on the deeper layers of the muscle and muscle tissue, and is usually received regularly to help temporarily relieve symptoms of arthritis.
3. Lymphatic Massage
This technique is known as a detox, as it uses light, patterned strokes to help drain fluid into the bloodstream. Lymphatic massage works well for arthritis sufferers as it drains the excess fluid from inflammatory points.
4. Shiatsu Massage
This employs a ‘finger pressure’ technique, which is applied to pressure points of the body (e.g. elbows and knees). The goal is to stretch and rotate the joints, usually going through the areas where an arthritis sufferer is experiencing the most pain.
5. Reflexology Massage
This technique is an Asian practice based on the concept of placing pressure on areas of the body to help heal other parts of the body (for example, placing pressure on the big toe to help deal pain felt on the head). Reflexology is designed to alleviate stress and anxiety whilst also assisting with pain relief.
Now that you know what each of the massage techniques entail, it’s well worth considering incorporating these 5 massage styles into your lifestyle if you are coping with chronic pain. What’s more, it’s also important to consider what kind of massage oils are being used in the practice.
Over the years, as more studies have revealed emu oil to be a top choice topical massage oil, many massage therapy professionals opt for pure emu oil in their practice. The reason is two-fold: Emu oil provides the added benefit of fast pain relief. This is due to its high concentration of Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation. It also absorbs quickly into the skin and contains natural healing qualities of Vitamin A, E & Oleic Acid.
