Effects of a massage on your body

The effect on our body as a result of a massage can vary depending on the massage technique. However, what most massages have in common is that they affect the skin, muscles and connective tissue by applying pressure, stretching or pulling movements.

For example circular pumping, twisting and scooping handles by the help of the hands, which make use of the elasticity of the skin, are used in lymphatic drainage.

A massage should not only have a positive effect on the area directly treated, but also on the entire organism. But not only the body, also the psyche perceives a massage as relaxing. The gentle touches can reduce existing stress.
