Just look at her!! @traceycipri_figure_pro This client of mine is an incredible inspiration and has such a huge story to tell ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ this is her in her peak week!! NOW about massage and bodybuilding etc ~ In order to grow, you have to continually put more and more stress on your muscles ๐Ÿ’ช This is known as the overload principle. Your goal is to force your muscles to continually adapt to heavier weights or greater intensity ๐Ÿ˜ง Effective training means overloading your muscles and then allowing them to recuperate ๐Ÿค”
Sounds simple, but itโ€™s a fine line ๐Ÿ™… If you donโ€™t push your workout intensity enough, you wonโ€™t grow. But if you push the intensity beyond your ability to recuperate, you get hammered with an injury ๐Ÿฅ And even a small injury can contribute to loss of performance in the long run ๐Ÿƒ Massage can help prevent all sorts of traumas, such as strains in muscle and connective tissue, spasms and pain that restrict movement, swelling and edema, and metabolic waste buildup that can slow recovery and cause muscle fatigue. In other words, massage can help you stay healthy and flexible so you can push your workout intensity safely ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Massage (remedial/sports etc.) also helps you heal faster after an injury so you can get back to your workouts sooner ๐Ÿšด why? increasing lymph drainage and improving circulation ALSO speeds recovery ๐Ÿ˜‡ #facts #moreyouknow _______________________________________________________________#paleo #strongnotskinny #process #massage #massagetherapy #cleaneating #remedial #strength #like4like #strong #squats #glutes #healing #follow4follow #recovery #health #instagood #active #food #nutrition #yoga #fitness #stretching

Red response is also know as a histamine response. Histamine is produced by basophils and by mast cells found in nearby connective tissues ๐Ÿค” Histamine increases the permeability of the capillaries to white blood cells and some proteins, to allow them to engage pathogens in the infected tissues โ€ผ๏ธ The application of massages stimulates the release of histamine ๐Ÿ’† which increases the permeability of the capilliaries. The redness effect that you get on the tissues after youโ€™ve worked an area is a sign of this increase in blood flow โค๏ธ Local vasodilation increases blood flow into the tissues and blood flow back into circulation. ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธOverall red responses are a great sign!! This is why I'll continue to post clients that have responded to my kind of treatment so well ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ _______________________________________________________________#paleo #strongnotskinny #process #massage #massagetherapy #cleaneating #remedial #strength #like4like #strong #squats #glutes #healing #follow4follow #recovery #health #instagood #active #food #nutrition #yoga #fitness #stretching

Left half of this picture shows what I dig the hell into! All those "ropey" like muscles that flick and what not?! That's them โฌ†๏ธโฌ†๏ธ tiny muscles tend to hurt more in treatments ~ they're also usually more of the issue rather then the big muscles themselves. On the right hand side it shows the outer layer we see (traps, lats, delts) aka the more well known groups of muscles ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช This is such a good photo to show the difference between the outer layer and muscles that are hidden underneath ๐Ÿค” love anatomy ๐Ÿ’ #humanbody #anatomy _______________________________________________________________#paleo #strongnotskinny #process #massage #massagetherapy #cleaneating #remedial #strength #like4like #strong #squats #glutes #healing #follow4follow #recovery #health #instagood #active #food #nutrition #yoga #fitness #stretching

The needles used in dry needling and acupuncture are identical. Dry needling is based on Western anatomical and neurophysiological principles, which are not to be confused with the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique of acupuncture. ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰ TCM is based on the use of โ€œpulses,โ€ โ€œcoatingsโ€ and โ€œmeridiansโ€ (or channels) derived from ancient Chinese philosophy and culture with traditional acupuncture needles inserted into defined acupoints, intended to unblock energy meridians and help create balance within bodily systems. ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ Dry needling uses a very fine, solid filament needle to cause a small, precise injury or โ€œlesionโ€ in the tissue when it enters the body. ๐Ÿ˜ง The tiny needle induces injury signals the brain uses to initiate a sequence of events to replace or repair the damaged tissue with new, healthy tissue. ๐Ÿ’ชNeedling in a painful โ€˜trigger pointโ€™ or muscular knot frequently provokes a โ€œtwitchโ€ response from the muscle. This is both diagnostic as well as therapeutic, because healthy muscle tissue will not โ€œtwitchโ€ when stimulated by the needle. Once a โ€œtwitchโ€ response has been elicited, the muscle fibers in that area relax, โ€˜inflammationโ€™ is reduced and circulation improves. ๐Ÿ’ As a result of these physiologic processes, dry needling can purposely address muscle, tendon and myofascial pain and dysfunction. _______________________________________________________________#paleo #strongnotskinny #process #massage #massagetherapy #cleaneating #remedial #strength #like4like #strong #squats #glutes #healing #follow4follow #recovery #health #instagood #active #food #nutrition #yoga #fitness #stretching

Spending most of my day at the headrest!! Lots of people coming to me with sore necks/shoulders/migraines/headaches etc. Ahh winter โ˜ƒ๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ It has been said that cold weather, cold air and pressure changes can be a culprit for migraines, headaches and joint pain!!

APT?? Anterior Pelvic Tilt. ( Lower Crossed Syndrome) is the postural position when your pelvis tilts forward, butt sticks out and arches your lower back ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ๐Ÿ’ชTightened Muscles = Hip Flexors/Quadriceps/Erector Spinae ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~๐Ÿ‘ŽLoose/Weak Muscles =Glutes/Lower Abs/Hamstrings ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~One major reason for APT is because of prolong sitting in an incorrect position ๐Ÿ™… (sitting in an office desk all day). Over time, your muscles adapt to this incorrect posture ๐Ÿ•š

Symptoms of ALT include: -lower back and knee pain
-shoulder pain (sometimes)
-weak glutes (butt muscles)
-Exaggerated curve in the lower spine
-distended gut
-shortened hip flexors
-elongated abdomen
-neck pain

On the bright side APT is reversible! It can be fixed/corrected with the right strength training, stretching and massaging over a period of time. ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ_______________________________________________________________#paleo #strongnotskinny #process #massage #massagetherapy #cleaneating #remedial #strength #like4like #strong #squats #glutes #healing #follow4follow #recovery #health #instagood #active #food #nutrition #yoga #fitness #stretching
