In ancient Greece manual manipulations were already used to alleviate the efforts of daily activities. Over the centuries, therapeutic massage techniques have been perfected. After being recognized in the field of medicine it has become an important therapeutic technique. And now it is planned in numerous rehabilitation programs.
Depending on the patient’s needs, all or some of the following movements are applied:
First, the masseur’s hands touch the skin in the area of interest without exerting pressure.
Then pressure is exerted, albeit slight, on the skin.
The hands rub the epidermis, acting on the superficial and deeper tissues.
The muscles and skin are then “pinched” to lift and move them transversely.
At the same time, the skin is pinched to improve circulation and facilitate the reabsorption of edema.
In addition, to improve muscle metabolism and vascularity, the affected areas are manipulated with the fingers, with the edges of the hand or with cupped hands.
To enjoy the benefits of the sessions, it is advisable to enjoy an entire cycle of massages. Check out our convenience bonuses.
