It includes various techniques and methodologies such as banking, soft techniques, trigger point release, mobilization techniques, fascial release and more.
Mobilisation, manipulation and chiropractic
A common feature of mobilization techniques and manipulation (called chiropractic) is targeted, manual intervention by a therapist to help restore range of motion, remove blockages, and relieve pain.
So what is the difference between them? Mobilization is a gentler, gentler and safer technique for removing blockages whereas manipulation/chiropractic is characterized by “bumping” into the barrier and the characteristic bursting (bursting can also occur with mobilization). However, due to the intensity of the design and the risks, we do not recommend this therapy as a first choice.
All manual interventions of the therapist are based on a targeted diagnosis of the musculoskeletal system. This will enable it to select the most effective means of solving your problem.
They are one of the most gentle manual therapy techniques and have their firm place in the beginning of the therapy, especially for acute painful muscles. The relaxation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue is gentle and at the same time it can act on reflex changes and provides relief also thanks to the improvement of soft tissue mobility and blood circulation.
Banking and Integrated (Dynamic) Banking are among the most sought-after procedures. Classical banking using glass flasks is one of the so-called “integral banking” procedures. traditional means of physiotherapy. It has been popularly used since the Middle Ages. It has a firm place in traditional Chinese medicine. Banking has evolved and improved over time, and thanks to silicone banks and especially new findings, integrated banking has emerged, combining the benefits of passive banking therapy with passive but also active client movement. Banking has thus become part of the comprehensive manual therapy that you will find in our centre.
Each massage is combined with the release of “trigger points”. Most people perceive trigger points, aka trigger points, as stiff lumps or knots in the muscles that can cause pain in more distant places. For example, a trigger point in the trapezius muscles can create referred pain to the head and trigger or aggravate a migraine.
