Masso-kinesitherapy

Kinetic Swedish Massage

This is a therapy in which the therapist’s goal is to understand and find the possible causes of pain and limitation of movement that clients are experiencing and to help them achieve a better quality of life. This is both a preventative and therapeutic approach. Based on Kinetic Swedish Massage®, specific tests are performed along with a postural analysis before using massage techniques.

Chair Massage

In this style of massage, oil or gel is used as a lubricant. Muscles are massaged from one end to the other, one segment at a time, using techniques that encourage maximum muscular relaxation. When muscles are relaxed, they are in a better position to be stretched.

This is the most versatile type of massage. It can be done at home, in the office or workplace and at sporting events. Swedish strokes are adapted to this type of massage. Some pressure points are also used. Clients can choose the duration of a session. Minimum duration is 10 minutes.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a very effective hands-on technique, which provides sustained pressure combined with movement to “melt” and unravel your myofascial restrictions that will eliminate pain, restore motion, and enhance your ability to relax.

Visceral Manipulation

Lymphatic Drainage (Vodder)

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle hands-on therapy that works through the body’s visceral system (the stomach, intestines, liver and other internal organs) to locate and alleviate abnormal points of tension and stress throughout the body.

Lymphatic Drainage (Vodder) offers the lightest touch of all types of massage. However, it has powerful results. This massage is usually reserved for those clients who cannot handle too much pressure.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet, hands, and ears. It's based on a theory that these body parts are connected to certain organs and body systems. In reflexology the technique is to use the thumbs and fingers primarily, applying small muscle movements, while in massage therapy the technique consists of large muscle movements utilizing the hands, and elbows.

Sport Massage

In addition to incorporating the basic techniques of Kinetic Swedish Massage®, this style of massage also focuses heavily on injury prevention. Enhancing circulation, promoting relaxation, and reducing recuperation time are some of its main goals. This technique is used either prior, between or post sport events.

Pregnant Woman Massage

Massage therapy techniques on pregnant women are only performed after the first trimester. Comfort of the woman is most important; therefore side lying on the table or the use of the massage chair is beneficial.

Deep Tissue Massage

Integrated deep tissue massage has proven effectiveness in resolving chronic musculo-skeletal and structural imbalances within a clinical setting.

 

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles.

 

Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and people who have sustained physical injury. It is not uncommon for receivers of deep tissue massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two.
