The aim of a medical massage is to relieve severe tensions and physical complaints.

At the beginning of a medical massage treatment, the therapist carries out an anamnesis to assess how to treat your complaints most effectively. The therapist will respond to your unique needs and combine a variety of techniques that are the most suitable for your problem.

The most applied techniques during a medical massage are Classical Massage, Trigger point therapy, Deep Tissue Massage and Fascia therapy.

What are the effects of medical massage?

Medical massage can help with various complaints and has the following effects:

  • Relieving acute or chronic tension
  • Relaxation of the muscles
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Pain relief
  • Headaches and migraines can be relieved
  • Organ stimulation
  • Loosening of adhesions of the fabric
  • Decongestion of lymph and vein flow
  • Wound healing is accelerated
  • Trigger points are resolved
  • Increased mobility
  • Scar tissue can be loosened

The effects of a medical massage are very versatile since the applied techniques in med. massage are versatile as well.

Trigger point therapy and deep tissue massage, for example, are about releasing tension in depth, while fascia therapy focuses on loosening tissue bonding. The choice of technique is therefore determined during the anamnesis and continually adjusted during treatment to meet your body’s unique needs.

In addition, the Medical Massage can be used as a supportive measurement. For example, it can be used after surgery to relieve pain and to support wound healing.

It can help with all complaints of the musculoskeletal system, which are triggered by the muscles. For example:

What’s the procedure of a medical massage at Origin Winterthur?

  1. At the beginning of the appointment your therapist conducts a detailed anamnesis. All information that is relevant for your treatment will be collected. The anamnesis can take between 5 and 20 minutes, depending on the complexity of your problem.
  2. The massage starts after the anamnesis. Your therapist will leave the room for 2 or 3 minutes, for you to undress and get comfortable on the massage bed.
  3. Your therapist focuses on your problem and applies different techniques. During the treatment you and your therapist will remain in exchange, for example, around the right pressure, any pain that might arise, and whether they are meeting the right trigger points. Your therapist and you should feel like a team.
  4. After the treatment you will discuss the necessary number of treatments for your problem and schedule the next appointment.
