Therapeutic massage

Therapeutic massage refers to a type of massage used for therapeutic effects and health benefits. The best definition of therapeutic massage is the systematic manipulation of the tissues using different types of techniques such as rubbing, kneading, pressing, picking up, tapping for therapeutic effects by increasing circulation, relieving pain. It has a positive effect on the physical and mental state of individuals.



Therapeutic massage adapts its techniques in order to stretch and lengthen the connective tissue structures which may have come under stress or strain due to repetitive movements or everyday activities. One of the aims of therapeutic massage is to encourage and enhance the venous blood return which leads to a breakdown of metabolic waste within the body which then leads to a faster recovery.

What are the benefits of Therapeutic massage?



Therapeutic massage has many benefits such as reducing tensions within the body and its structures, enabling the maximisation of functions related to an individual's wellbeing.

The benefits include:-
  • Aid in the recovery process

How therapeutic massage works:-



The specialist therapists at Liverpool Physio use different types of techniques that reinforce and cause the physiological and mechanical changes within the body such as:- When combined these techniques applied by our therapists manipulate the connective tissues which increases the oxygen within the blood through a process called vasodilation. The increased circulation works by normalising the connect tissues and maximising the nervous system leading to the therapeutic effects.

The release of tension and stress by the stimulation of the pain pathways are applied by the therapists which maybe cause by indirect or referred pain which is either acute or chronic.

The therapists at Liverpool Physio engage their extensive knowledge, skill and experience of the musculoskeletal system to apply these techniques leading to the desired effects.





Summary
