The focus of medical massage is on the treatment of health problems. It is intended to relieve severe tension and alleviate physical complaints. In contrast to traditional massage, it focuses on relieving chronic pain, improving mobility or supporting the body during rehabilitation after an operation or injury, among other things. Medical massage is often recommended on the advice of a doctor or therapist. However, no medical certificate is required to book it.

When can a medical massage help?

Medical massage is an effective treatment method that can help with a variety of complaints caused by muscle tension. These include severe tension, both chronic and acute, back pain, muscle strains, neck tension and headaches.

Complaints caused by overloading the muscles, such as cramps, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and leg complaints due to intensive sport, can also be alleviated. Medical massage can also help with post-accident complaints, pain in the upper or lower back, pain caused by one-sided postures, shoulder pain and pain in the shoulder girdle as well as pain caused by misalignment of the feet.

How does a medical massage help?

A medical massage is a holistic treatment method that not only targets specific problems, but also has positive effects on the entire body. While the therapist addresses the main problems, the massage often leads to an overall sense of well-being as it calms the nervous system and brings the body into balance.

Various techniques are used to relieve or even dissolve acute and chronic tension. At the same time, blood circulation is increased to ensure better tissue supply and adhesions in the tissue and fascia are loosened, which improves mobility.

The massage can also loosen scar tissue and accelerate wound healing. It also has a positive effect on headaches and migraines by releasing tension and dissolving trigger points to reduce pain.

Furthermore, massage promotes the decongestion of veins and lymph flow, stimulates the organs and contributes to the general relaxation of the muscles and nervous system.

When should a medical massage be avoided?

A medical massage should not be used in case of blood clots, fresh scars, inflammation of the skin or rashes, open wounds, and circulatory diseases.

How can I imagine the process of a medical massage at Origin in Chur?

At the beginning of the therapy session, there will be an introductory discussion in which you and your therapist will discuss the important details of your state of health. This conversation usually lasts between 5 and 20 minutes and serves to clearly define the goals of the treatment.

You will then have time to get changed and lie down on the treatment table.

The treatment will be adapted and carried out according to the previously discussed preferences. Your therapist will be available to answer any questions or comments during the session.

At the end of the session, further appointments for follow-up treatments can be arranged if desired.

How many medical massage treatments are usually needed?

As a rule, it takes one to six sessions for the problem to be effectively treated. The exact number varies and depends on the complaints. If you do not feel any improvement after three treatments, discuss with your therapist whether another massage therapist or specialist is better suited to your problem.
