Pain relief and strengthening of the immune system
The medical massage is strictly symptoms- and results-oriented and helps to specifically target a diagnosed problem through the treatment provided by a trained therapist.
Primarily, the medical massage treats tense muscle groups with classic massage techniques that include stroking, kneading and friction. The success of various stretching, pulling and pressure techniques brings about relaxation and works at the local level for the musculature and the vagotonic areas, which brings about improvements in blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and sleep. The blood circulation is promoted, the metabolism stimulated, pain alleviated.
The psyche also experiences relaxation in most cases. The classic massage technique releases endorphins that strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and limit the formation of new stress hormones.
