During the healing massage tensions, hardenings and diseases of the musculature are released. It promotes blood circulation, regulates muscle tone and has a positive effect on the well-being of the body. This technique is also suitable as a preventive measure against all kinds of musculoskeletal complaints. Lymphatic drainage is a pleasant and relaxing edema and decongestion therapy.

Other treatments at Villa Medica

Acupuncture massage positively influences the energy flow within the meridian system. Pressure regulates the energy balance. The areas of application range from different types of pain, muscle tension to problems of the spine. The Trigger Point Therapy focuses on trigger points. These are hypersensitive areas in a tense bundle of muscle fibres. The aim is to release the hardening through therapy, to stimulate the blood circulation in the muscle again and to relax it. Segment massages belong to the reflex zone massages. It makes use of the existing interrelations between the layers of the body blanket and the internal organs.

How does a massage work?

Muscles always have a certain basic tension. Tension is the constant tension of individual or entire muscle groups above the normal level of tension. This is very often caused by incorrect posture, heavy or one-sided wearing and/or stress. Acute massages and heat treatments such as fango, sauna or a hot bath are usually the most effective remedies for normal tension. Longer-term effect promises a targeted strength training to strengthen the affected muscle parts. If your massage is prescribed by a doctor, you can submit the invoice you receive from us to your health insurance company.
