Russian Massage Treatment
The Russians have been practicing Russian massage for over 100 years, but this type of massage therapy has only been popular in the United States for around 30 years. Russian massage therapists believe that the body begins to heal itself through the process of massage. Russian massage combines sports massage techniques with some of the relaxing procedures of a therapeutic massage. It differs though, in that the massage varies depending on the degree and location of the injury and not the entire body. The massage therapist applies deeper pressure than in a Swedish massage.
Russian massage includes three phases and seven techniques. During phase one, the massage therapist uses slow, relaxing strokes in order to relax the client. The therapist applies a gentle and light massage to ready the muscles for the deep massage in phase two. In phase two, the massage therapist applies deep, kneading strokes that are hard and fast. The strokes must be continuous and fast for this part of the session to be effective and therapeutic. As the therapist works with the muscles, the tension is alleviated. The therapist uses slow and gentle strokes again in phase three to relax the body again. Depending on the injury and the client's comfort level depends how deep the therapist can apply friction or pressure. In order for Russian massage to work effectively, the client's body pass through each phase as it must be properly warmed up before deep pressure can be applied.
Clients often use Russian massage to treat tired muscles, sore joints, control stress, and to improve blood flow and circulation. Doctors may refer patients for Russian massage if they struggle with musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, or neurological issues, as they say it helps both the body and the mind. This type of massage speeds up healing from injuries, including sprains and strains. It also aids in healing chronic conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tempro-mandibular joint (TMJ) issues. Russian massage helps revitalize and heal the body after surgery and de-stress the body.
Massage session typically last 15 minutes to one hour, and continue until the client's injury has healed. Russian massage has now become one of the most popular massage therapies around the world because anyone can experience it, and it is one of the most relaxing types.
