Classical massage is the oldest art of health, hygiene, and treatment with several millennia-long history. This is one of the most common types of massage. Classical massage is applied for treatment of various diseases, restoration and normalization of impaired body functions. Massage improves the trophic processes in the skin, stimulates metabolism, intensifies gas exchange in organs and tissues, improves blood and lymph circulation, muscle elasticity, increases their ability to contract and relax faster, increases their working capacity. As a result of this type of massage scars become softer, tissue accretion sites disappear, and nutrition of the joint capsules is enhanced.
Shin and foot massage is performed by using device Canoo 3. It is a unique device used for performing massage on shins and feet simultaneously. There are wheels installed on a special platform enabling to massage acupressure points on the sole. Compression shin massage is performed simultaneously. There are lots of biologically active points on the soles stimulation of which can prevent lots of diseases. Moreover, massage reduces tension in the legs after a hard day at work, significantly improves the tone. Massage may also be used for prevention and treatment of many diseases.
Neck area massage is performed by using device Maxiwell 3 – it is a massage pillow consisting of a massage head of nephritic stones. The infrared rays emitted by them have a thermal effect in this way improving the therapeutic effect. The massage allows relaxing after work and gives priceless aid after various lesions.
Foot and palm massage performed by using device Reflexoped 2. There are 24 different-size wheels installed on a special platform enabling to massage acupressure points on the soles or the palms. Stimulation of the points on soles or palms improves the overall condition of the body, trophic processes in the skin, stimulates metabolism, intensifies gas exchange in organs and tissues improves blood and lymph circulation, muscle elasticity, increases their ability to contract and relax faster, increases their working capacity, eliminates fatigue in the legs and in the arms, improves joint functions.
Foot massage performed by using device Infraped II. A rotary vibratory mechanism on a special platform enables to massage acupressure points on the soles, to relax shins and thighs. Compared to other devices, Infraped II generates more intense vibration with deeper effect. There are lots of biologically active points on the soles stimulation of which may reduce tension in the legs after a hard day at work, relax the entire body, and prevent many diseases.
Shoulder, neck, elbow, wrist, palm massage performed by using device Neck Massager. Tension in the neck muscles causes pressure and pain that may spread to shoulders, arms. A common cause of it is sitting too long (e.g., in an office at the computer or in a car) or sitting in the wrong position. Limited movements at the head–neck and (or) the spine can also often be caused by immobility. Recurring tension, chronic pain can develop when muscles get tired, extra tension builds up in the neck vertebrae and discs. Massage helps to relax tense muscles, reduces pain.
Pelvic area massage is performed by using orthopaedic device Hip 2050. Application of this type of massage strengthens the pelvic muscles, improves blood and lymph circulation, metabolism in muscles. It also reduces discomfort in the area of the spine, reduces symptoms of sciatica. It is applied for treatment of musculoskeletal diseases: osteochondrosis, back pain; neurological diseases: neuritis, neuralgia, radiculitis, lumbalgia; internal organ diseases: urinary incontinence, intestinal dyskinesia; male and female genital inflammation (prostatitis, painful and irregular menses), pelvic muscle weakness.
Vibratory massage performed by using device Andullation Therapy System. It is a method of massage when vibration waves are stimulated in the human body tissues. The device is used for treatment of muscles and joints, to improve fluid circulation in tissues, to restore the overall functional condition of the body. The device simultaneously performs vibration massage and heat therapy with infra-red light. Therapeutic effect: reduces pain, improves lymphatic circulation, stimulates the cardiovascular system, improves blood circulation, improves oxygen supply, stimulates excretion of toxins, metabolic products, relieves nervous tension.
Arm and leg water massage by using device Aquaroll Pro. The operating principle of this device is based on simultaneous operation of four factors: water, selected appropriate water temperature, constant pressure caused by glass beads and their respective rotational speed, glass bead pressure, and water massage (hydro-massage). Continuous movement of glass beads and water and pressure to the joints, muscles, and ligaments function as a pressure therapy. Therapeutic effect: gives the sense of excellent well-being; lymphatic drainage eliminates the sense of heaviness, swelling; gives the sense of lightness to swollen legs, ankles, arms, or wrists; improves the condition of arm or feet skin; reduces joint pain; accelerates healing of scars, wounds; activates blood microcirculation and lymph flow.
Dry water massage by using device Wellsystem Medical & Medical Plus. The relaxation system of device Wellsystem Medical & Medical Plus has been developed by using water, light, air, colours, odours, and sounds in minimal space. The entire body or individual parts of it are massaged within the process of this massage by rubbing, stroking, and kneading muscles. The procedure is done over the clothes as the patient lies on the back.
- back pain, pain in the cervical, thoracic areas of the spine, migraine, joint pain;
- muscle tension, muscle tension caused by stress, muscle fatigue, muscle imbalance, fibromyalgia (mild);
- fatigue, functional disorders of the spinal area, sciatic nerve pain.
Therapeutic effect: improves blood circulation and metabolism, venous blood and lymphatic circulation, reduces muscle tension, soothes pain, reduces weight (reduction of the subcutaneous adipose tissue), positive impact on the vegetative nervous system (positive impact on the internal organs), deep muscle relaxation, normalization of the muscle tone.
Underwater massage is performed by using a strong stream of water while lying in a special bath with a special support for the head and the legs. The water in the bath is fresh, temperature: 35–37ºC. Warm water helps to relax the muscles better. The water environment reduces spasms, accelerates the pain relief effect, improves joint flexibility, moves are done more freely and easily. The horizontal position makes the cardiac activity easier, improves the venous blood flow. The water forms special breathing conditions (aggravated inhalation and facilitated exhalation) exercising inhalation muscles and improving pulmonary ventilation.
Underwater massage has a deeper and stronger impact on the body comparing to manual massage. Active hyperthermia is maintained longer and is more expressed, oxygen supply to the subcutaneous tissues increases, gas exchange and metabolism accelerate, trophic functions are activated in water. Therapeutic effect of underwater massage: reduces swelling, soothes pain, eliminates seizures, relaxes muscles. Recommended for treatment of the peripheral nervous system, musculoskeletal system, metabolism, some blood circulation and digestive diseases. Currently not available.
