Massage system

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

We apply a special massage system as part of the INRS rehabilitation program in order to provide biomechanical correction of the spinal column, relax spastic muscles and influence myofacial trigger points.

It includes classical techniques, segmental, and periosteal massage therapies, combined with elements of postisometric and anti-gravitational relaxation. By using different massage relaxation techniques, specialists can prepare the musculoskeletal system so that biomechanical corrections can be effectively conducted on the spinal column. They use techniques to mobilize limb joints, and increase their mobility, and acupressure techniques to impact specific trigger points. Tonic massage methods have also been developed in order to activate hypotonic and inactive muscles.
