What are the benefits of using motion in massage?
Massage can be used when muscles are tight and following injury to increase range of movement. Massage increases range of movement by increasing the temperature of soft tissues, increasing tissue elasticity, breaking down adhesions, reducing swelling, decreasing pain and removing waste products from the muscles.
What are frictions used for?
Frictions are localised manipulations performed onto soft tissues with fingers or thumbs. Frictions are commonly used to treat ligaments, tendons, fascia and muscles. Frictions can be applied transversely across soft tissue structures or in a circular movement.
