Places within our muscle fibers become unhealthy due to acute or chronic stress. Disturbances in muscle functions and muscle stiffness develop from this.
These in turn cause pain, which can even drift into remote regions of the body. Responsible for this are so called myofascial trigger points.
Through trigger point therapy the pathological changes in our muscular system can be removed.
Fields of application
- Reduction/removal of myofascial pain
- Restoration of the physiological functions of muscles and conjunctive tissue
- Improvement of blood- and lymph drainage
- Improvement of posture and movement patterns
- Positive effect on the psyche of the patient, especially subconscious emotional processes, which have led to a better muscle relaxation
- Reflective influence on internal organs
Also called “the art of touch” this is one of the forms of treatment that gives people strength and vitality.
The classic massage influences the muscles and the surface tissue layer through different techniques ( stroking, kneading, vibrating, etc.).
- Improved circulation
- Stimulation of the metabolism
- Loosening, stretching and relaxing the musculature
Resulting in a better oxygen feed of the musculature and removal of metabolic products (which harden the muscle), which in turn leads to a reduction of pain within the tissue.
For athletes it’s a sensible preparation and/or follow up to sports activities.
In case of occupational and/or posture-related strains the classic massage is a good prophylactic method.
Fields of application
- Disease of the locomotor system, which needs a relaxation of the musculature
- Painful tension
- One-sided strain at work
- After treatment of muscle injuries
A pregnancy massage can help to improve well-being, release tension and alleviate discomfort. The treatment is offered starting in the 12th week of pregnancy and can be performed until the end of pregnancy.
- Relief of sciatica, lumbar or rib pain
- Improvement of circulation
- Support of the immune and lymphatic systems
- Relief of muscle cramps
- Reduction of edema and tissue congestion
- Reduction of stress and anxiety
- Improvement of sleep quality
The foot reflexology is a naturopathic procedure. It is based on the theory that certain regions or points on the foot are connected to other parts of the body especially internal organs via fixed connections (“reflex pathways”).
The emphasis here is not only on the symptoms.
The holistic point of view also takes the background of the symptoms into account, i.e. why they are there in the first place.
The foot reflexology works with the self healing properties of the human and thus accomplishes a natural change in all disturbed vital functions.
- Pain in the spine, joints and musculature
- Illness of the digestive organs, urinary tract, respiratory organs and the skin
- Headaches, migraine
- Accompanying dental restoration, in cases of toothache
- Lack of vitality, states of anxiety, sleeping problems
- During pregnancy, and afterwards for mother and child
- As preparation and/or follow-up for surgeries
- Accompanying all painful or difficult situations of life
- As feel-good treatment and preparedness or care of your health
This is a decongesting technique, which uses gentle strokes on the skin to encourage the drain of lymph fluid.
First the central lymph nodes are stimulated through soft circling motions and then the therapist moves through the natural direction of the lymph nodes towards the affected area.
Through the therapy you achieve a faster, steady detumesce of the region in question, a reduction of pain and a better flexibility.
After the treatment it is best to put on bandages or compress stockings to maintain the treatment’s results.
- Edemata after chest-surgery or severe accidents
- Sudeck’s syndrome
- After treatment of surgical interventions
- Chronic venous insufficiency
CMD is a common disorder of the chewing system.
For example, a jaw that is tense due to stress may be characterized by pain and grinding of the teeth.
Targeted massage of the chewing muscles promises relief.
- Limitations in movement and pain in the head and neck region
- A tense jaw accompanied by pain while chewing
- Friction and cracking in the jaw joint when speaking and chewing
- Hypermobility of the jaw joints (lockjaw)
- Inability to open the mouth wide
- Bruxism (teeth grinding) during the day or at night
- Stiff jaw muscles, especially in the morning
- Painful jaw joints due to overuse
