What is massage?

Massage is a treatment used by physiotherapists to stimulate the soft tissues in your body (muscles, ligaments, tendons) in order to relieve pain, improve circulation and relax you. There are a number of different techniques that the physiotherapist’s at Physio.co.uk may use depending on your symptoms:
  • Stroking- using gentle touch and can be used at the start or the end of your massage to soften the tissues, increase blood flow to the muscles and provide a general calming feeling.
  • Deep tissue massage- this can reach and loosen very deep muscles that may be stiff from an injury or poor posture. Deep massage increases the delivery of blood flow to these muscles and will remove any toxins that may have built up.
  • Kneading- this uses circular techniques in smaller areas and can help to break up any scar tissue and stretch tight muscles to increasing their range of movement.
  • Frictions- these are smaller deep movements of the thumbs or fingers that aims to break down scar tissue and improve circulations of the area. Frictions are commonly used for sporting injuries and help to reduce pain and encourage the healing process.
