It is a soft type of manual chiropractic. This kind of therapy can be divided into three groups: structural therapy (affecting joints and the spine), cranial therapy (affecting the skull and what’s inside), and visceral therapy (affecting inner organs).
Sports massage affects reflex points and the receptors of muscles and skin, which transmit impulses to the central nervous system.
The impulse flow, which depends on the applied technique, stimulates or relaxes the central nervous system, which positively impacts all physiological systems of the organism.
This type of massage is based on the theory of segmental body structure. Special segmental methods are used in this type of massage in addition to ordinary massage methods.
This method is successfully used for treating myofascial pain. The technique’s other name is intramuscular manual therapy.
This system, which has been very popular in professional sports for a long time, was invented by a Japanese expert 30 years ago. Now it is an integral part of athletes’ recovery and rehabilitation.
