Vibration massage technique is a fine, gentle, trembling movement performed with hands or fingers. Vibrations can be used to stimulate soft tissues in the body. Vibration movements can help stimulate nerves, relieve muscular tension and decrease stress. Vibrations at a slower pace are an effective treatment to produce a feeling of relaxation. The benefits of vibration massage techniques are relieved tight muscles, reduced stress and improved circulation. Massage therapists at Physio.co.uk can use vibrations as an effective massage technique to treat a range of conditions.
What are vibrations?
Vibrations are a massage technique in which tissues are pressed and released in an up and down movement. A vibration massage creates a vibrating and shaking motion onto the muscles that can be performed in a soothing or stimulating way. Lighter vibration techniques can help stimulate the parasympathetic system and help the muscles relax. An increasing speed of vibrations can be used to stimulate the circulatory system and loosen soft tissues.
When are vibrations used?
Vibrations are a massage technique which can be used:
Vibrations are an effective massage technique used pre event to promote stimulation. The aim of pre event massage is to increase blood circulation, flexibility and mentally prepare people for activity and enhance performance. Specific massage techniques such as vibrations are used to create a short but specific massage treatment. Vibrations can loosen the muscles at a vast pace in preparation for activity and help performance.
Vibrations are also used for tight muscles. Vibrations help reduce tight muscles by increasing temperature of soft tissues and increasing blood circulation. Vibration techniques stimulate an increase of temperature by friction against the skin. Friction causes an increase of blood flow to the muscle and the temperature to increase. Vibration helps restore circulation to the muscles and it increases the amount of new blood cells to the area stimulating the healing process. Massage relaxes the muscles, separating and loosening muscles fibres.
What are the physiological effects of vibrations?
Massage can produce many important physiological effects on the body. The physiological effects of vibrations include:
Vibrations increase the temperature of soft tissues. Vibrations stimulate an increase of temperature by friction against the skin. Friction causes an increase of blood flow to the muscles therefore causing the temperature to increase. When temperature increases, the muscle fibres relax and loosen allowing more movement.
Vibrations can also increase cellular exchange in the tissues. Cellular exchange is the transportation of oxygen and nutrients. The increase of cellular activity within the tissues can also begin to remove waste products out. Increased blood circulation to the muscles allows more cellular exchange to happen. Cellular exchange can be important to maintaining healthy muscles.
Vibrations increase venous return in the body. Venous return is the amount of blood that is returned back to the heart. Applying a vibration technique in the body increases the circulation of blood back towards the heart.
What are the benefits of vibrations
There are many benefits of vibrations. The benefits of vibrations are:
Vibrations are a beneficial massage technique to help relieve tight muscles. Vibrations can reduce tightness by increasing blood circulation and temperature of the muscles. Increased blood flow causes the temperature of the muscle to increase therefore inducing relaxation. When muscles are relaxed, tightness is relieved.
Vibrations can be used to reduce stress. Stress can be related to emotional or physical events in life, such as work life, health or sporting performances. Vibrations can be performed before exercise to help prepare an athlete mentally for performance. Vibrations can also promote the body to relax so that stress is alleviated.
Vibration technique is an effective massage technique to improve circulation in the muscles. Vibrations are part of the percussion techniques which are performed quickly onto larger muscle areas. The fast movements of vibration stimulate capillarisation in the blood. Capillarisation is the increase of the amount of capillaries in the blood. The more capillaries in the blood, the quicker the oxygen and blood gets to the muscles. Improved circulation can be important to the body's overall health and function as well as being beneficial to participating in exercise.
Common body parts treated by vibrations
There are many common body parts that can be treated with vibrations. Common body parts treated by vibrations are:
Vibrations can also be performed on other areas of the body and be effective to stimulate muscles and relieve tightness.
