think of massage as a luxury to indulge in on occasion. But one of the most
beneficial times for massage may be during pregnancy.
massage refers to hands-on massage during or after pregnancy.
pregnancy massage typically lasts an hour. Some practitioners use a pregnancy
massage table that is designed to accommodate a woman's pregnant belly. Aesthetic
Beauty & Massage use specially designed pillows called bolsters to position
our pregnant client comfortably on her side.

Swedish Massage - For pure relaxation and stress management.
Swedish Massage is the basic relaxation technique named after the Swedish
physiologist and gymnastics instructor who devised the strokes. It incorporates long, smooth, flowing
strokes to promote general relaxation. Due
to the style of this massage, the strokes target the superficial musculature
This style of massage could be seen as the corner stone upon which the industry
of Remedial Massage was built, because this is the basic style of massage from
which most (if not all) other techniques were based.
Did you know that Aesthetic Beauty & Massage is registered with a number of
Private Health Providers?
Our point of difference from regular beauty salons is that we offerremedial massage.
Remedial massage is the systematic
assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective
tissue of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
Some examples of problems a remedial massage therapist can address include:
Tension headaches, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff issues, sciatica, reduced
range of motion, lower back problems, sore shoulders, sore neck, whiplash,
kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis, strain caused by computer/keyboard/mouse use,
delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), you get the idea!
This week I wanted to share the relationship
that massage has with muscle health.
Muscle strain, muscle pull or even a muscle tear implies damage to a muscle or
its attaching tendons. You can put undue pressure on muscles during the course
of normal daily activities, with sudden heavy lifting, during sports, or while
performing work tasks.
Muscle damage can be in the form of tearing (part or all) of the muscle fibres
and the tendons attached to the muscle. The tearing of the muscle can also
damage small blood vessels, causing local bleeding (bruising) and pain (caused
by irritation of the nerve endings in the area).

Happy New Year to my clients and readers! I have chosen this topic
for the blog as I have had quite a few discussions with clients lately in
regards to their exercise habits that they have increased in the New Year.
You may have heard of DOMS or ‘delayed onset muscle soreness’. It is a
particular type of muscle soreness that sets in a day after exercise. The
exercise is usually very hard or far more than the individual would normally be
muscular contractions (where the muscle
lengthens as it contracts) such as in hopping, bounding and other exercise, running downhill, squatting and the lowering phase when lifting
weights, can cause DOMS.
A good massage is a wonderful, relaxing experience, and a great way to take ‘time out’ for ourselves. But does itreally
benefit our health? A lot of people still consider it a luxury and may not be aware of the scope of health benefits that massage can assist.
When we’re having a massage, essentially what we’re doing is helping the body’s natural processes. We’re assisting the body to heal itself, get rid of waste products and stimulate circulation. For example, overworked and tight muscles will tend to accumulate waste products such as lactic acid, which can cause soreness, stiffness, and even muscle spasms.
