Performed by qualified masseurs, the medical massage, sometimes referred to as the ‘classical’ massage, uses a variety of techniques during treatment. The massage generally targets areas where secondary changes have occurred as a result of injury somewhere in the body. Its aim is to speed up the recovery process by improving circulation to the problematic area. As well as improving blood flow to the targeted region, it can relax or stimulate muscles and mitigate pain. The massage is normally conducted in the following areas: back, arms, lower extremities, stomach, chest and neck. Depending on which areas are targeted, this is either referred to as a ‘partial’ or ‘full body’ massage.
