Or the patient lies on his stomach, arms crossed with each other, the frontal bone located on the back of the patient surface of the fingers. Methods of massage movements in a classical massage on the national school of conducting the course of the lymphatic supply to the location of the nearest lymph nodes along the massage lines. Lymph from the front of the head flows off in front ear lymph nodes, and the back of the head – through the occipital lymph nodes. Lymph from the upper limb is sent to the axillary lymph nodes, and from the lower to the groin. All this is important to consider when performing massage movements along the lymphatic drainage. Strokes – is a group of techniques in which the hands of the masseur glide over the skin, not shifting and not shifting it. Official site: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts.
These techniques begins and ends with a massage. They can and should be applied between other groups of massage techniques. Stroking a positive effect on the skin, sluschivaet the upper layers of the epithelium, improves the function of sweat and sebaceous glands of the skin, accelerates blood circulation and lymph flow, causes a slight local temperature rise. In slow stroking is a calming effect, with rapid and vigorous, there is an increase in excitability of the cns. Stroking accelerates lymph flow more than other methods, so stroking conducted for lymph to the nearest lymph nodes. More info: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts. Grinding – a group of massage techniques in which skin and vlc (subcutaneous fat layer) are displaced with respect to the underlying tissues. Effect: 1.Usilenie local circulation in the tissues. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Sander Gerber. 2.Povyshenie local skin temperature at 1.5-3 C. 3.Uspokaivayuschee effect on the cns. 4.Uskoryaet resolution hardening, pathological deposits and fluid accumulation, scarring and adhesions. Kneading – group massage techniques, in which the underlying tissues are displaced, kneaded, squeezed. At the same time increasing blood circulation and lymph flow, activation of redox-vostanovitelnye processes in soft tissues is much improving their nutrition. In slow in tempo, a strong (deep) and time-consuming kneading the excitability of the cerebral cortex and decreased muscle tone. With the rapid on rate, surface and time is briefly kneading – the excitability of the cortex and the muscle tone increases. Vibration and shock techniques – is a massage technique in which a hand massage transmits on a massed body of the vibrational motion, which propagate inwards and periphery. Vibration prolongs the effect of kneading, has analgesic effect, improves the contractile and trophic function of the muscles.
