CLASSIC MASSAGE

CLASSIC MASSAGE

Definition

what is classic massage?

The term «massage» origins from the Arabian word «mas» which means as much as to touch. There are many techniques which are applied for massages such as friction, thumping and caressing techniques, just to mention a few. These three methods are also found in other physiotherapeutic applications such as the breathing therapy, where deeply embedded secrets are loosened by applying slight thumping and the ventilation of the alveoli is improved. Friction is a main component of the trigger point treatment. Here the “knots” are worked out by applying small movements, mostly diagonally to the fiber course of the muscle.
