Classic massage is a therapeutic treatment performed with hands. It serves as a preventive measure and treatment for various ailments, as well as a relaxing experience.
It can be offered as both a partial and full-body treatment.
The individually selected scent of our organic oils enhances well-being and relaxes the body, mind, and soul.
During a classic massage, the skin, muscles, and surrounding tissues are stretched, relaxed, stimulated, loosened, and better circulated through various techniques. Additionally, it promotes the production of synovial fluid, improves skin and cellular metabolism, as well as blood and lymph flow. It enhances oxygen supply to the muscles and increases the elasticity of ligaments and tendons. The massage deepens breathing, relieves pain, and lowers heart rate and blood pressure. All of these effects lead to mental relaxation and restore energy balance.
Classic massage is recommended for post-treatment of muscle injuries, as well as for alleviating tension and tightness in muscles. The diverse massage movements help improve connective and supportive tissues, address issues related to the musculoskeletal system, and relieve tension and blockages.
It is particularly beneficial for athletes as a pre- or post-activity routine. Additionally, it serves as a preventive measure for those experiencing one-sided strains due to occupation or posture.
Massage therapy is also suitable for migraine, headaches, mental tension, restlessness, and stress. Overall, it has a positive impact on the entire body, promoting well-being and relaxation. When fatigued, exhausted, or overwhelmed, the massage rejuvenates the body, provides new energy, and enhances the body’s defense mechanisms and performance.
Techniques of classic massage include:
- Effleurage (Stroking): Gentle, light stroking movements parallel to the muscle fibers in the direction of the heart. This helps identify tension and stiffness while warming up the muscles.
- Petrissage (Kneading): Muscles are pushed and stretched in both directions. Kneading and rolling of the skin primarily stimulate blood circulation in the muscles. Rubbing and circular motions with fingers and palms loosen tense or hardened muscle groups.
- Friction: Small circular movements with thumbs, fingertips, or palms apply pressure to the skin or underlying muscles, increasing local blood circulation. It reduces muscle tension and helps alleviate palpable knots in the muscle tissue. Counter-pressure reduces pain in tendons and muscles and helps release adhesions.
- Tapotement (Percussion): Light tapping or slapping motions with a relaxed hand promote blood circulation in the muscles and stimulate the nervous system. It is used to work on and strengthen deep muscles and can even help tone muscle areas.
- Vibration: This massage technique generates rapid vibrations (back-and-forth movements). It is usually employed to relieve fatigue and pain, aiding in the healing of specific areas.
- Stretching: Individual muscle fibers are pulled apart or lengthened. The alternation between relaxation and stretching promotes increased flexibility in muscles, fascia, ligaments, and tissues.
- Periost (Holding): Pressure triggers the release of natural substances through pain receptors. This pain is referred to as “good pain” because it directly contributes to well-being after the maneuver.
- Joint mobilization: Gentle supportive movements are used to move a joint throughout its full range to maintain and expand its range of motion.
Possible reactions following a massage treatment may include muscle soreness, heaviness, fatigue, stiffness, slight pain, or mild pulling in the massaged area.
