This patient volunteered to share a video of their Electroacupuncture session: You can see how the muscle contraction is strong in some areas but weaker in others. MSEA can help to regulate & restore motor nerve response, providing better muscle strength & support of the spine & joints. It flushes calcium buildup out of tight (contracted) muscles by rapidly engaging calcium pumps within the muscle tissue. And, electrical stimulus causes the release of your body's own pain killers (endogenous opioids).
The end result? You can feel looser, have reduced pain and better muscle recruitment & range of motion.
Oh, and most people sleep MUCH better, too!
"Stress gives you access to your heart . . ."
This shift in thinking could make a profound difference in your health!
At the end, the speaker makes some very important points about Oxytocin release as part of your body's stress management. Regular Massage Therapy treatments can also increase the levels of this hormone:
For muscle to give you full strength, range of motion and joint support, it needs to be able to lengthen fully. Everyday strain can create muscle tears that are mended by scar tissue, which inhibits lengthening, and diminishes blood supply.
Massage Therapy can break apart this scar tissue and restore your muscles to a healthy state. Electroacupuncture can release chronically shortened muscle fibers through neurological inhibition. Pain reduction, improved joint function, strength, flexibility and endurance are benefits you will notice with regular treatment!
