Products and ambiance
The classic massage is performed using small amounts of oil or lotion on a massage table or futon.
When we talk of massage, we talk about the mechanical manipulation of skin, connective tissue and muscles. It includes stretching, pulling and pressure stimuli, which are mostly carried out with fingers, palms or elbows. But specialist massage implements may also be used.
Anyone who spends long hours in front of the computer knows this – and anyone who often experiences stress, too: Shoulders, neck and stomach tense up in unnatural ways and make themselves painfully known in quiet moments. Muscles can no longer relax, joints can no longer return to their natural position for relief and tendons are overstretched. The consequence is wear and tear. More and more people turn to massage to prevent this, and to relax their minds, too. There, professional hands gently release the critical points and induce a deep state of relaxation of body and mind within a short space of time. We offer this relaxing and restorative treatment in Zurich to help you stay fit for everyday life. Classic massage is the treatment of choice if you are looking for relaxation of both body and mind.
Massage – Relaxation for body and mind
Body massage is based on a simple principle: Hands, fingers and elbows are used to manipulate the body in such a way that there is a reaction in the body, either in a local area or its entirety. It may sound simple, but in addition to knowledge of anatomy, physiology and massage techniques, it requires above all empathy, sensitivity and dedication. A massage can only have a relaxing effect if the givers of massage are sufficiently relaxed themselves to transmit this relaxation through touch. There are different types of massage. They are based on different theoretical principles and have different goals. For instance, it is possible to achieve local muscle relaxation or improve circulation in certain areas, and inner organs can be stimulated via reflex arcs. The release of knotted muscles, the intense body contact and the empathy of a professional masseur/se all contribute to reducing stress and mental tension, and ultimately lead to a holistic relaxation.
The classic massage
This comprehensive effect of body massage can be achieved with classic massage. It is also known as Swedish massage. It is one of the most popular forms of massage and is practised by masseurs, physiotherapists and doctors all over the world. What makes classic massage special is the fact that it is a panacea, i.e. a universal remedy. Conditions which can be alleviated by classic massage include localised pain, spinal conditions, spasm, neuralgia and post-traumatic disturbances. Classic massage is scientifically and medically recognized. There is no doubt about its beneficial effects. These are achieved through stroking, kneading and muscle stretches, complemented by pressure point treatment. Classic massage is mostly used when the principal aim is muscle relaxation. Unhealthy movement or posture patterns cause hardened and knotted muscles, which need to be loosened for a pain-free life. The strokes also improve the blood circulation of the skin. There are five basic stroke techniques in Swedish massage, which are applied in specific sequences.
The stroke techniques of classic massage
The stroke technique includes the following elements: Effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), friction (rubbing), tapotement (tapping) and vibration. In effleurage, the body is gently stroked at the beginning of the massage. This technique is reminiscent of a caress and aims to accustom the client's skin to the hand of the practitioner. It also helps to distribute the massage oil. In petrissage, skin and muscle are picked up and kneaded with varying amounts of pressure, as required. This movement aims to release undesirable spasms. Like a dough that is kneaded, the muscle becomes softer and softer with this technique. In friction, small circular movements of the finger tips or the ball of the hand are applied. The regular circular movements help to loosen hardened muscles. In tapotement, the body is tapped either with cupped or straight hands. The movements are short and reminiscent of light percussion. They improve circulation and change the muscle tone. In vibration, the masseur/se places his fingers or the whole hand on the body with short trembling movements, which produce muscle tremors. These tremors spread through the whole body of the client and can penetrate the deeper layers of tissue and even the inner organs with their antispasmodic effect.
