Segment and Connective Tissue Massage
This uses a very specialised massage technique, targeting nerve connections and endings. The massage is carried out in one of four areas: the head and neck, the back, the chest or the pelvis. Using the thumb and forefinger, the masseur presses firmly along short or long, direct or curved lines. This massage action is very particular and not only promotes healing in the area being massaged, but through a ‘reflex’ effect it promotes healing in the entire body, which is why it is sometimes referred to as a ‘reflex’ massage. In addition, it has been found to be very effective in relieving stress, fatigue, sleep and digestive disorders and high blood pressure. The massage is a very sensitive body intervention that can have certain unexpected side effects, such as short breath, stomach pain, the lowering of blood pressure and sudden fatigue. As a result, prescription is given with care and under the guidance of a doctor.
