What is therapeutic massage?

Therapeutic massage aims to eliminate certain body aches (such as low back pain, cervical pain, etc.), caused by various reasons, such as trauma, poor postures, stress, among others. This massage is performed by manipulating the soft tissues, that is, the muscles, tendons, nerves, adipose tissue, skin, etc., performed with different techniques, such as: superficial rubbing, kneading, friction, percussion, vibration, mobilization, stretching…

Benefits

In addition to relieving pain, it relieves stress and improves mood.

It facilitates the elimination of toxins.

Activates blood and lymphatic circulation.

In short, therapeutic massage improves your quality of life.

Methodology

1. I evaluate your physical needs

Before starting the session, I ask you what ailments you have, what lifestyle you develop (if you exercise regularly, or lead a sedentary life, or if you work standing up …), if you wear any prostheses or pacemakers, or if you have submitted recently to some surgical intervention.

3. I complement the session with foot reflexology

A few minutes of foot reflexology accentuates the effects and benefits of therapeutic massage.

2. I prepare a special session according to your specific needs

For example, in the case of cervical pain, I first assess what is the cause of that pain, as it may have an ocular, or dental, or muscular shortening origin, or due to poor mechanical postures. Once assessed, work accordingly, using the manual technique that best suits your case.

If you lead a sedentary life, complement the session with a circulatory massage, mobilizations and stretching, to activate the circulatory, blood, lymphatic system, and to gain more mobility in the joints, and to improve elasticity and flexibility.
