Dry massage

Dry massage

This type of classical massage, whose essence is exerting and relaxing mechanical pressure on the tissues, is one of the oldest forms of physiotherapy. There are two basic massaging methods – manual and mechanical. Manual massage is mostly classical massage. Mechanical massage can be divided into underwater, subatmospheric pressure, vibration and whirlpool massage.

Therapeutic effect

Massage is recommended in disorders, where it is necessary to improve the turgor and trophicity of the skin, eliminate skin blood supply disturbances, get rid of venous and lymphatic stasis, accelerate muscle recovery, regulate muscle tone, relieve pain, stimulate metabolism, relax mentally, etc. Mechanical stimulation of receptors improves local circulation, accelerates the absorption of exudates and transudates, and increases the excretion of endocrine glands.
