Russian Sports Massage
Russian massage is a massage therapy technique developed in the former Soviet Union. It is most often classified as a sports massage. It is sometimes referred to as connective tissue massage, point massage, or reflexology massage, depending on the techniques used during treatment.
Russian massage techniques are similar to most sports massage practices, but they involve slower, softer motions. Russian massages focus on the use of friction to generate heat within the body. This, combined with vibration, is employed to ease muscle pain and stiffness. It also relieves mental stress, along with providing other benefits.A Russian massage relaxes the muscles. Massage therapists use a combination of kneading, slapping, and vibration techniques. The focus is on parts of the body that experience or cause pain. Practitioners of Russian massage say that it improves functioning of the nervous system, immune system, and respiratory system.
Using targeted injury massage techniques on soft-tissue injuries (such as muscle pulls and strains, tendinitis, ligament sprains, and whiplash) can help them heal faster. Massage reduces spasm, pain, and swelling. Massage can also prevent the formation of excess scar tissue or reduce excess scar tissue and adhesions (stuck together tissue) that weaken muscles and make you prone to another injury.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it”s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Few structures have as much influence over the body’s ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system. And, the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the craniosacral system – the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.
Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.
Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of touch. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses his or her hands to evaluate the craniosacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the craniosacral system.
