For relaxation, reduction of stress and quicker regeneration
Classical massage is carried out through the mechanical manipulation of skin, connective tissue and muscles. This is achieved through stretching, pulling, pushing and pressure stimuli.
The effect of massage is varied and wide-ranging. It not only has a local effect on the treated part of the body, but also influences the entire organism and includes the psyche.
Healing massage may only be practised by specially trained therapists whose training includes pathology (the study of diseases) and who are therefore allowed to treat sick people. A medical prescription for curative massage is a prerequisite for this.
The most important effects are:
- Relaxation of muscles
- Relaxation of skin and connective tissue
- Local stimulation of blood circulation
- Pain relief
- Improvement of metabolism in the tissue
- Loosening of hardening, adhesions
- Improvement of scars
- Reduction of blood pressure and pulse rate
