Lower Back Pain Relief with Advanced Myofascial Massage in Barcelona

Hi Friends, this is Max I’m an Osteopath and a physical trainer in Barcelona.

Today I want to share with you some of the techniques from Rolfing and Deep Tissue Massage ( masaje estructural profundo) that I use to fix lower back pain (dolor de espalda baja).

Back pain can be caused by over-used muscle or can be postural.

Most people has hernia in the L4 and L5 vertebrae but never experience any pain, Others might have a nerve impingement and feel an horrible shooting pain down their legs.

For this reason a good assessment is necessary to understand the root cause of the problem , even if without MRI is not always possible to isolate the real issue.

In any case there are great non bias researches that prove that a good relaxing or deep tissue massage can mitigate the pain in the lower back.

No matter what the cause is, relaxing the muscle around the spine and hips, can make you feel much, much better.

For example getting rid of the tightness in the quadratus lumborum can “magically” resolve a hips elevation and a consequently short leg.

Myofacial massage can definitely align pelvis and lower compartment fascia

If you Stretch a tight ileo-psoas muscle in a hyperlordic lumbar (a big lumbar curve) region can make wonder for a lower-crossed syndrome.

Those are just two basic physical interventions to get rid of back pain even though it is never so simple as you probably know.

When we will work together we will find and correct :

  1. Your weak muscle and the way to finally activate them
  2. Fascia adhesions or restrictions that impede the functional movement of your muscle
  3. Functional end range of motion of your joints and how to increase it
  4. Pain in your Trigger Points ( where it’s possible)
  5. Stressed and shortned muscle and I will release them with advanced myofascial release technique
  6. Or you can just enjoy a Damn Good Massage!

I looking forward to meeting you !

Sport Massages , Recovery and Feeling Insanely Relaxed

sport massage barcelona , sagrada familia area
One of the best way to recover from a long trip or a workout is a great massage !

Hi Everyone,

As a Muscle Therapist I’ve been asked a lot of questions all the time about what is the best massage to recover from a workout or from any athletic performance

Of course there is no simple answer to this question because all the massages have to be customized on each client’s body and necessities.

For example if you have just run a marathon your body is already pretty inflamed from the physical exertion, the last thing you want to do is applying more damage ( a strong deep tissue ) to the already tired muscle. So a soft tissue massage with gentle mobilization could be the answer.

But let’s say you have a competition in 3 days and you feel your muscle tight from excessive strength training and conditioning.In this case you might want a deep tissue massage where I work your adhesion and release the knots throughout trigger point therapy. It might hurt a little and increase the inflammation in the next 48 hours but it will speed up the general recovery and get you ready and lit for the competition.

What I’m trying to say is that there is no magic formula to get the perfect massage , the only magic formula is the communication and the understanding between the client and the massage therapist. The more I understand how you feel when I work on your tissue the more I can calibrate my pressure and release the pain in your muscle. It’s a dialogue where we are working together to heal your body and to feel insanely relaxed after it.

Therapeutic Massage : When The Massage Reduces Pain And Increase Well_Being

Therapeutic Massage Barcelona : get better , relax your knot and feel awesome again

HI Guys , welcome to my massage blog. Today I want to talk about the pain process and how a good therapeutic massage can reduce this pain.

Pain happens for one simple reason : to protect you .

Inflammation is a primal response to injury.

When your muscle is inflamed cytokines are released in the injured tissue.

Massage increases the density of M1 and M2 macrophages that help to reduce edema , cellular infiltration and tissue necrosis.

we still don’t have scientific proof that massage works as anti inflammatory medicine but we are getting there .

Nevertheless : athletes , desperate housewives, frustrated Beta and Alpha males, crossfitter, mma fighters, bodybuilder competitors , transgenders, gays and straight , overweight or fit , old and young people or Everyday Life Human Being are enjoying the physical , emotional and psychological benefits of a good massage.

So if you are ready to reduce your pain , feel relaxed and awesome here in Barcelona send me a Whatsapp or a SMS to 0034 634791996

I charge 60 Euros x 60 min and 85 x 90 min

If you buy 2 sessions the second session is Only (50 x 60 min) or (75 x 90 min)

Kindest Regards

Deep Tissue Massage and Back Pain Relief

Hi guys , welcome to my website. Today I want to explain to you my method to solve back pain. I believe in the scientific based approach of Stuart McGill, the theories on Fascia of Tom Myers and the Kinesiology work on muscle testing of Greg Roskopf.

When a patient come to my studio , I start the session with an initial Q and A : I draft a complete anamnesis of pain history , posture, workout routine, food intake, physical behaviour and then in collaboration with my client we figure it out the best treatment to heal his back pain.

I use :

  • Muscle Testing : to spot the weak muscle in the functional chain and with isometric contraction or palpation I activate that muscle
  • Osteopathic Testing : to detect subluxation and then with muscle energy techniques or Thrusting I correct the joint that is out of alignment
  • Myofascial Techniques : to redirect the Fascia in the wanted direction generally against gravity to redefine posture
  • Deep Tissue Massage : to relax the muscle and heal the muscle pain
  • Mobility : to strengthen the joint in the end range of the ROM
  • Exercises : to rehabilitate the muscle and increase performance

If you are ready to feel better and explore with me the best physical strategies and tactics to increase mobility, reduce pain and optimize physical and emotional health call me at 0034 634791996

or send me a Whatsapp at 0034 634791996

I charge 60 euros x 60 min and 85 euros x 90 min

Fix Your Posture (PERMANENTLY) , with MyoFascial Release Massage

Myofascial Release Massage
MyoFascial Release Massage in Barcelona

Myofascial Release Massage and its close cousin Rolfing , are alternative medicine therapies that treat the fascia and the muscle in your body, starting at the feet and continuing up to the skull. The MyoFascial concept is simple .As human being we are subjected to the pull of the force of gravity . Our structure (bone , muscle and fascia) adapt to this force and create dysfunctional movement pattern throughout our life that can result in behaviourally fixed positions.

Think about how the position of the head influences the rest of the spine when you are checking your phone. Or how high heels increase your pelvic tilt and create lower back pain .Even the way your feet touch the ground can induce shin splint or sciatica pain.

The causes of pain are infinite and to detect exactly where certain pain comes from is very complicated. I’m still learning after 20 years as a personal trainer and 6 yrs as a Muscle Therapist. Every day is a new challenge but I love it and I’m grateful for all my clients that trusted me all these years.

Fascia Work and Deep Tissue Massage Techniques can influence and correct your posture ( as long as it’s not structural ) . I can move your muscle and the fascia in the right direction ( generally against gravity) and with the addition of mobility and physical exercises you can become straight and strong again

if you think this is what you need or if you have any questions send me a Whatsapp Now at 0034 634791996

I charge 60 euros x 60 min

and 85 euros x 90 min

I started massaging athletes and clients  in my  Strength and Conditioning  Gym in Barcelona.

If you ever been serious about training and conditioning you know you need a good mobilty routine and a fast but efficient warm up. Tissues and muscle  have to be ready to sustain external stress ( Heavy weights and repetitions)

But the more you train and the more you increase volume and strength the more you need to recover.

Muscle grow when you sleep ! But if your body is sore and full of metabolites and toxins from the training, you won’t recover as fast as you need for the next workout

Enter the Massage

A good Massage helps to get rid of the toxins and restores and relaxes the muscle to aggressively attack your next workout or Competition.

That’s why after 15 years of training all kind of people I decide to add massage to my services.

I know how the human body and its complex anatomy and I can help you in balancing excessive muscle contraction , KNOTS and PAIN

I use Deep Tissue Massage as a base to get rid of pain in your upper back and lower back

my experience allow me to mix Chinese Massage, Acupressure and Streching to get the most benefits and relax for  your body.

I know how to relief your back pain !

Trust me when I’m saying that I won’t let you go if the pain isn’t less than when you entered my door

my fees are :

Deep Tissue Massage  55 euros  x  60 min /  80euros x  90 min
