Conventional Methods Vs. Advanced Methods Using Massage Devices

Massages can be done the conventional way or with the help of advanced massage techniques. Both come with their fair share of advantages. Advanced massage techniques, massage devices make the process more convenient. So anyone can get a massage done without having to look for a massage therapy clinic. But how effective are they in comparison with the real massages?

Cost comparison:

Massage devices are one-time investments. If you buy the right one from a reputed brand then it would go a long way. But if you are choosing a massage therapy clinic you would have to pay the therapist for every visit. This might however be worth the expense in some special cases. If you are getting a massage to relieve pain after an injury, a therapist would do a better job than a normal massage device.

Convenience factor:

Modern day massage devices are mainly about the convenience. You have two choices. One is to hunt for a clinic, book an appointment, and then spend time and money in travelling to the massage therapy clinic. You might not even find an appointment at a time that is convenient to you. Another option is sit back on your recliner and grab your massaging device at your time of convenience. Which would be the more convenient choice? The answer is pretty evident.

Efficiency of the treatment:

Which is more efficient- the hand massage or a massage device? This is a tricky question to answer. The type of massage you choose, the purpose and other factors would influence the decision here. For some cases even a massage therapy clinic might use some massaging device. This would help achieve better precision and uniformity as well. But in some cases massage done by a well trained professional might be a better choice. For that you should choose the best clinic. I got a jamu massage here when in Singapore and it is one of the best I have experienced so far.


What separates good youtube campaigns from bad ones?

A good youtube campaign can be the difference between shooting off into stardom (at least in the online world) or sitting in the gutter with all the other youtube wannabes. We’ve come a long way from the likes of chocolate rain, where all you needed was one brilliant video and wait for it to go viral. The online world has become infinitely more popular since then, with communities cropping up left right and center, cross media sharing through facebook and live streaming. Keeping on top of your social media can be a daunting tasks, some companies even hire whole teams to manage projects for them. They can be that complex.

Once you understand what seperates the good from the bad, hopefully you can start to make some changes that will have a positive impact upon your youtube page. I have always found that successful youtube campaigns are credited to one of three things. The phrase I like to use when talking about this is ‘have you ever bought views’.

You’d be surprised at just how many people don’t know that you can just buy views like that, right from over the internet without ever having to leave your home. People say that time is money, but so are views. The more views you’ll get, the more money that you can be pulling into your income stream. But you do have to be willing to spend money to make money.

Good campaigns cost more money than terrible campaigns, and it’s obvious to see why. I set up an experiment once where I used two similar accounts that were marked for deletion. I sset one of them up with a cheaper campaign, and another one with a premium service. Within a week, the cheaper one had been banned whilst the second one was still going strong.

Can You Prevent Muscle Loss By Taking Supplements?

If you are a fitness freak who works out completely and does strength training, there may be some issues that bother you. Among them could be the probable muscle loss.

Muscle loss is something that occurs in individuals for various reasons. These can range from something as diverse as irregular sleep patterns, to high cortisol levels as well as overtraining. The stress hormone called cortisol can trigger the fight or flight response in your body. This hormone is essential as it helps your body in coping with the physical stress that is part and parcel of training and exercise. Higher levels of cortisol can gradually break down the muscle tissue for energy, in the long term. Therefore, to counteract this muscle loss, supplements can be taken. There are some natural supplements that can offset the effects of cortisol hormone. As a trainer, you should prevent muscle loss so that you can achieve your fitness goals.

Foods such as oatmeal, sweet potatoes, whole grain pasta and bread, and fresh fruits help in inhibiting muscle breakdown. They slowly release the sugar into the working muscles. These can be taken around two hours before training as well as after a workout.  Even protein foods like egg, beef, chicken, fish, or turkey help in preventing muscle loss. Nowadays, many athletes and trainers are also taking bcaa supplements to prevent muscle loss. These amino acids provide the energy thereby preventing the body from using its own muscle for energy. The branched chain amino acids are metabolized directly in the muscles and therefore inhibit any muscle breakdown. These bcca supplements can be taken before or after a workout and sometimes even during a workout. Consulting a sports nutritionist prior to taking the supplements helps you in achieving your fitness goals in the right way.
