Learning About Diabetes Diagnosis, Treatment and Research

Welcome to my site, my name is Jess Indaja. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after struggling with my weight throughout my teen years and adulthood. My doctor informed me about all of the dangers associated with my diet and exercise habits. I was encouraged to change the way I ate and moved in an effort to reverse my blood sugar problem. I made the changes, but still struggle with controlling my blood sugar. After going through this trying situation, I decided to make a site that may help others with problems associated with type 2 diabetes. I will discuss diagnostic procedures, treatments and medical research concerning this disease. I hope you visit often and learn all you can to control your type 2 diabetes or help others with this condition.

What You Need To Know About Your First Massage

by Carla Hudson

Getting a massage is one of the best ways to relax and encourage healthy functioning of the body. Many people choose to get massages regularly because of the many benefits. If you have never gotten a massage, you might be wondering what to expect. Here are some things you need to know about getting a professional massage.

1. Choose A Place That Is Comfortable For You

It is important when you get a massage that you are in a place that is comfortable. If you are receiving a back massage, which is one of the most common types of massage, you will lie on a table, face down, without a shirt on. There will be a sheet for you to cover yourself, so that you are not exposed. If you feel uncomfortable about this, you can talk to the massage therapist about keeping the sheet on during the entire massage, otherwise they will remove the sheet so that they can put oil on your back.

Since a massage is a vulnerable experience many people choose to have the massage therapist do a house call. This means that the therapist will bring all of their supplies to your house and you can have it done in the comfort of your own room. If you do not feel comfortable with this, you can go to the massage therapist's studio. Usually there are multiple rooms where massage therapists are working, where you will have privacy in your own room.

2. You Might Feel A Little Sick Afterwards

After you get a massage you might feel a little sick to your stomach. This is normal. When the massage therapist pushes down on the muscles, they will release toxins, even lactic acid.This acid will be released into your system, and you will eventually pass it. Thus, you might get a slight stomachache, and have diarrhea following the massage. This is totally normal, and even a healthy response to getting a massage.

3. Benefits Come From Getting Multiple Massages

Even though getting a single massage will be nice, you might not get the full benefits. Instead, massage works best as you get multiple massages. For this reason, you should consider getting a massage every 2-4 weeks. This will help your body to get rid of all of the dangerous toxins, and help your muscles to relax. People who get multiple massages report great benefits, such a small pain, more flexibility, and even relief from anxiety. 

If you are thinking about getting a massage, give it a try! You won't be disappointed. Talk to your local massage parlor, such as Health Atlast Fountain Valley, for more information.
