There is growing evidence of trials and studies regarding transdermal absorption of magnesium (Mg) compared when taking in a tablet or capsule orally as a supplement. The good news is you may now introduce it in your massage routine. Magnesium has many benefits, it is good for the mind, fights depression, and lowers blood pressure while boosting your sports performance. The combination of deep tissue techniques with the application of magnesium spray increases the healing process of a body. The benefits of magnesium application into your routine not only help ease and soothes aching muscles rapidly, but they also enhance better sleep and promote weight loss when using it in conjunction with other exercises and diet. Deep tissue massage is best suited for people who engage in very active physical activities, such as running, play sports, or those who are recovering from an injury or have persistent chronic pain.
I have suffered from a whiplash injury from a car accident about a year ago. It affected my neck to the upper part of my right shoulder blade right while it radiates through my right arm elbow. I have progressed better on mobility with combinations of treatment. It is my next best thing to physiotherapy. Like all therapies, one session will not solve the issue. You will need at least 3 to 6 sessions for the massage with a combination of recommended treatments by your therapist.
Before any treatment, discuss your issues with your therapist. Please be open and do not hesitate to communicate with your therapist before and during the massage. Deep tissue massages usually begin as a more traditional relaxation massage. The techniques can be approached in the most common methods, full-body or localized. After the muscles are warmed up, your massage therapist will begin to work deep into your problem areas. In addition to their palms, fingertips, and knuckles, they may use the forearms or elbows to increase pressure. Expect some soreness 24 to 48 hours after your each session.
I recommend these few combinations and alternate the treatment:
- Magnesium capsule, taken orally
- Stretching methods
- Magnesium spray
- Cold compress or Heat pack
- Magnesium flakes for soaking
The benefits of a magnesium bath/soak:
- Relieve joint pain
- Relieve bodily stress, aches, pain, and fatigue
- Soothe skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis and dermatitis
- Remove toxins and heavy metals at a cellular level
- Improve inflamation
- Improve skin hydration
- Improve blood circulation and blood flow
- Fight infection
Magnesium oil has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its ability to naturally promote healthy skin. Research has indicated that regular use of magnesium oil applied topically helps to maintain ideal moisture levels and normal inflammatory responses in the skin, making it especially beneficial for treating skin problems.
It is my next best thing to physiotherapy”
In addition to supporting skin, by applying magnesium has been linked to other wellness benefits such as muscle relief, better sleep cycle, and relaxation. Proven evidence has also found that magnesium chloride in the form of magnesium spray encourages joint mobility. Treating your issues with the combination of massage, cold compress, heat pack, and stretching along with an application of magnesium oil through transdermal, makes the healing process quicker.
