Why Massage Your Forearms? Your Solution to Computer and Tradesman’s Forearms

Sports & Remedial Massage - Myaree

We’ve been noticing something unusual lately.

An increasing number of our clients are specifically seeking their forearm to be massage.

But many people are not aware that they can walk into a remedial massage clinic like ours and make such a targeted request. The truth is, it’s not only possible, but it’s also extremely beneficial, particularly for those who spend their days at a desk or on the tools.

Now, let’s explore why getting the forearm massage is a necessity for many people.

Our forearms are a complex network of small, intricate muscles that work tirelessly throughout the day. Think about it: from the moment you tap the snooze button on your alarm, pick up your coffee mug, to typing away at your computer, or gripping onto that drill or spanner – your forearms are at work.

Doing an office job, your hands are constantly in motion, darting over your keyboard or finessing your mouse, leading to what we in the massage business call ‘computer forearms’. On the other hand (pun intended), those of you who are hands-on with your tools all day, experience what we lovingly term ‘tradesman’s forearms’. Whatever the cause, the result is the same: tight, hypertonic forearms that need some serious TLC.

And here’s why. Tight forearms don’t just cause discomfort or stiffness in the forearm area. The tension can lead to other problems such as tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and aches in the hands and wrists. In severe cases, it might even restrict your range of motion or grip strength. Not so great when you’re trying to finish that office report or tighten that stubborn bolt, right?

This is exactly where our expertise at Adaptive Massage shines. Our therapeutic approach is not just about offering a chance to unwind (although that is a delightful bonus!). We offer treatments specifically designed to target and alleviate pain, stiffness and tightness of your forearms. Our adept massage therapists utilize a variety of methods to soothe your tight muscles, enhance your mobility, and bolster blood circulation. The outcome? Refreshed and revitalized forearms, ready to tackle whatever your daily grind throws at you.

At our welcoming clinic, we’re committed to providing you with personalized treatment plans. We concentrate on the areas that require the most attention and adjust our strategies to yield the best outcomes for you. After all, there’s a reason we’re called Adaptive Massage!

Now, let’s talk about the techniques we employ to help your forearms feel their absolute best.

One such method is deep stripping. This involves applying deep, sustained pressure along the length of the muscle fibers to relieve tension and break down adhesions. This technique can help improve the elasticity of your muscles and promote better circulation.

Stretching is another technique we employ. Regular stretching can keep the muscles in your forearms flexible and prevent them from becoming short and tight. It can also enhance your range of motion, making it easier to perform your daily tasks.

Compression, where direct pressure is applied to specific points on the muscle, is another method we utilize. This technique can help reduce muscle tension and stimulate blood flow to the area, promoting healing and relaxation.

Cross-fiber friction is another highly effective technique, especially when dealing with muscle tightness or scar tissue. By applying pressure across the muscle fibers, we can break down adhesions, increase flexibility, and promote healing.

In addition to these, we also use techniques such as myofascial release and trigger point therapy to target specific points of tension in your muscles and connective tissues. These methods can help to further reduce muscle tightness and improve flexibility and range of motion.

By skillfully combining these techniques, our therapists can provide you with a truly adaptive massage experience, leaving your forearms feeling rejuvenated and ready for anything. So, isn’t it time you gave your hardworking forearms the care they deserve? So, whether you’re a desk jockey, a hands-on tradesman, or somewhere in between, don’t let your hard-working forearms go unappreciated. Treat them to the professional care they deserve at Adaptive Massage.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to roll up those sleeves and give your forearms the love they deserve. Contact us today to schedule your forearm-focused remedial massage. Your forearms (and the rest of your body) will thank you!
