Massage Santa Barbara

Why visit a massage factory in SB where you might not get a great massage and have a bad experience. Why get stuck with a monthly membership you don’t want or never use! Why deal with rude spa managers who just want to sign you up for a membership so that they can make a bonus.

Visit PRO massage in a nice quiet, quaint neighborhood, tucked away on the west side of Santa Barbara.  My studio is full of art and I hope you like cats because I have three.

Pain caused by Nerves, Muscles of the Neck

Pain caused by Nerves, Muscles of the Neck

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body.

Sciatica most commonly occurs when a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine, or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis) compresses part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain, and often some numbness in the affected leg.

Although the pain associated with sciatica can be severe, most cases resolve with non-operative treatments in a few weeks. People who have severe sciatica that’s associated with significant leg weakness or bowel or bladder changes might be candidates for surgery.

Why Get Bodywork?

Many people turn to regular massage and bodywork because of chronic pain. It might take a variety of bodywork methods and practitioners to create lasting change. One practitioner or method might take clients a certain point, and then it’s time to try someone or something else. In many ways, it’s each person’s own path of healing, and he or she has to direct it individually.
Many people find that it can take years, even a lifetime of regular care, to fully achieve and maintain the benefits of massage and bodywork. Getting one massage at a resort once or twice a year may be relaxing, but it is not going to undo chronic pain or keep your muscle tissue supple and responsive.

Bruising after a Sports Massage

Bruising after a Sports Massage

A bruise is a mark on your skin caused by blood trapped under the surface. It happens when an injury crushes small blood vessels but does not break the skin. Those vessels break open and leak blood under the skin. Bruises are often painful and swollen. You can get skin, muscle, and bone bruises.

Black and blue marks are often associated with bruises. A bruise, or contusion, appears on the skin due to trauma. Examples of trauma are a cut or a blow to an area of the body. The injury causes tiny blood vessels called capillaries to burst. Blood gets trapped below the skin’s surface, which causes a bruise.

Bruises can occur at any age. Some bruises appear with very little pain, and you might not notice them. While bruises are common, it’s important to know your treatment options and whether your condition warrants emergency medical attention.
