Treating Injuries: Massage Oils, Balms & Salves

Massage Oils will Minimize the Occurance of Injuries


Although the power of massage is sometimes underestimated, it has always been an important therapeutic adjunct to traditional martial arts training. Beyond its role as a primary rehabilitative technique for treating injuries, massage has always been highly valued by martial artists and athletes for its ability to minimize the occurrence of injuries as well as significantly reduce pain and suffering. Some of its more familiar benefits are: improved circulation of both blood and Chi, relaxation of constricted or sore muscles and sinews (ligaments and tendons), and improved transportation of synovial fluids. The personification of the fraternal warrior spirit is demonstrated by the traditional practice of assisted stretching between training partners at the beginning of a training session—followed by the regular exchange of massage (each training partner massaging the other) at the end of the training session.  It was also a common practice for students to massage the master (Sifu or Sensei). This therapeutic protocol was considered an important part of training for preventing injuries and improving flexibility.  Out of this tradition certain therapeutic massage oils have become well known and enjoyed continuous use over the centuries based on their proven effectiveness. 

Information on the most effective massage oils is below.

Note: How to effectively use these oils: Massage the oil into the affected area or over the body, allowing it to penetrate.  After completing the massage wrap the body with a hot towel to keep the area warm and allow the oil to fully penetrate for approx. 15 to 30 minutes.  In cases of injuries to muscles and tendons, this procedure can be repeated up to four times daily.   Do not apply oil to open-wounds.
