Common Terms you might hear during a massage session
Muscle Memory - The ability to repeat a specific muscular movement with improved efficiency and accuracy that is acquired through practice and repetition. They practice their routines with mind-numbing repetitiveness, for hours and days, weeks and years, so that each spinning, twisting landing off the high bar becomes an act of muscle memory
Connective Tissue (Fascia) - Connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses and separates muscles and internal organs. Supports and prevents injuries or trauma within the body. Supports the skeletal system and allows your organs and muscles to move smoothly against each other.
Muscular Tension – Muscle fibers can restrict contraction to create a feeling of tension in any muscle area. Muscle can shorten in length that restricts blood-flow and oxygen to the cells.
Muscle Sensitivity – Muscles will become more sensitive to touch. The tighter they are the more sensitive they will be.
Muscle Soreness – Post massage side effect. This is caused by the physical break down of adhesions, tendons, ligaments and muscle tension during the massage session. It is normal and better if you feel soreness in one, two or more days after your session.
Bruising– Post massage side effect. Bruises, also called muscle contusions, are areas of skin where the damage occurs to underlying muscle fibers or connective tissue, causing bleeding beneath the skin. Since the skin is not broken, the blood spreads out beneath the skin, giving the appearance of black, blue or purple on the surface. The more blood involved, the larger the bruise.
